I think they'll have to.  The rules for the wet pubs are 99% the same as the food pubs so it doesn't make sense to let one open but not the other.  The food pubs are abusing it anyways by just serving €9 burgers/pizza from the next-door chipper.

It'll be a tricky one for us as, theoretically, pubs are a bit part of our business.  Most of us are gonna see our PUP money drop on 17th Sept.  We'll be forced back to work but what work?  Esp if they start lockdowns in Dublin again.

The pubs are open already.If they didn't want the ones with restaurant licences to operate they could easily have said you need to spend €20 quid on food.A €9 meal isn't very much in Ireland.

I don't think there will be a massive upsiwing in business after the first couple of weekends.Still no late bars.

Dont take this as Gospel But the thought is .Local lockdowns by post code .If there are more than 200 ACTIVE cases per 100,000 people then local lockdown will be considered .Now The population of most Dublin Postal areas would not be 100,000 So would they decide to put 8.10,12 togeather and close Inchicore ,Drimnagh and Ballyer  area to make up the numbers .Or might they use Electoral areas ?How the Fuck can people run a business if the people making the rules dont know the rules .

Do you not know why it was 9 euro? When I were a lad if you wanted to go to a late nightclub they had to sell food Mc Gonagles gave you a ticket and you got Cabbage and spuds and a bit of pig .I think Sacks also did food .The cost of the food was four shillings when the law was writted about 1962 .So the Government decided that as that law was still on the books they would use that to open food pubs four bob in 1962 would have the same purchasing power as 9 euro today .The original law was to keep the Chapel happy that people were going for something to eat and not dance and drink late .Thats where the ( euro bit came from

Interesting...I've only seen some pensioners and dole lifers complain about the €9 food requirement.

I've just got myself in the habit of starving myself for a few hours before going for pints.It's a genius plan until the pub doesnt force you to buy grub then you end up in a heap the next day.

Sitting on the rank outside the courthouse here and the cream crackers are absolutely murdering one another. All started by a woman of course. It's great fun to watch when things are quiet..
