OK,this is my first thread start so you'll have to forgive me if I make a tool of myself.
It would seem that we Irish don't have enough reasons to get locked out of our Christmas Tree, that we have to partake in this ritual which seems to be getting bigger and bigger every year.
I was working Saturday night doing security at a pub which I do most Saturday nights.The difference with this weekend was that there were a number of groups wandering around the town partaking in this so called drinking game The Twelve Pubs of Christmas.
Im well used to drunks and drunken behavior but I was truly taken aback at the drunken loutish behavior I witnessed on Saturday night. At 9pm everybody seemed to be meelogen drunk and we had a few heated exchanges with some groups as we refused them entry .
I don't know who invented this game or where it originated but as a man who loves his pint of stout I would never partake in such a drinking game where the only outcome is that everybody seems to be comatosed by 10pm.
I don't know how a pub can benefit from such behavior or how the customer who is involved in such drinking game can benefit from it.
Have any of you guys taken part in one of these nights out and lived to tell the tale.?
