“Dry bar” ends in tears

I hate to see a fellow losing money, but that aside this is a good-news story from shot to show:

The “dry bar” opened recently but “has shut its doors after only five weeks of business on Karangahape Rd.” Co-owner Grady Elliott said “the bar had a few customers but they drank water and little money was passed over the counter.

“Non-alcoholic bars and clubs were emerging internationally,” says the Herald’s story, “with establishments in London, New York and Sweden tipped as ‘the next big thing’ by overseas media [but] … it seems Aucklanders are not so keen.”

Nor so stupid.
