Under 21

I know that it must be really cool when you're 18-21 in Europe, because you're allowed to drink at bars.

But on the other hand, think of it from your older self. Imagine you're at a bar, sipping a glass of wine, having civilized conversation on your Match.com date with a divorcee. You look over, and these chuckleheads are what you see. How pissed would you be?

well, if you do go out on a date with that divorcee, I bet you w0nt be on the same bar as these guys, right?

Cris said...

That's the point. Over there, chuckleheads could be anywhere!

Cris said...

...and they are.

Well put Katie.

I hear they were giving out 2 free hats for every crow shirt purchased that day.

Iceland has a 20 year alcohol limit, although the age of majority (i think that's the term, using dictionary.com here) is 18. But, of course, loads of bars let 17-18 year olds in.

Seriously? If you are going to date a divorcee, would u take that poor women to a bar/nightclub for 18 years olds???
We do have places that are chucklehead-free, Europe is a big "place" and do have lots and lots of entertainment-establishments u can drink together with a higer age-clientel... ;)

Cheers mate... ;)
