Sorry for not writing lately, but I have been a bit busy and uninspired.
While reading news online, I found an interesting article on Monot street written by Katherine Zoepf of The New York Times. It was published in the New York Times and the International Herald Tribune.
While I found this article more or less objective, I believe that the interviewed waiter's comment was inappropriate. He said that most people would spend the whole night on 1 beer.
I am not here to discuss whether this is an actual fact... But I want to make it clear that drinks in Lebanon are not cheap. While a bottle of beer costs around 750LL ( 50 cents) in the supermarket, it is sold between 5000 LL (3.3 $) and 10 000LL (6.5$) in pubs.
That is 10 times more on average...
You can read the entire article on the IHT site.
By the way, the BINGO game is now the latest entertainment wave to hit Lebanon. I will investigate that and get back to you with details.
