I like (actually I love) to go for a quiet pint every now n' then and just stare into the deafening silence and hear the hypnotysing clock on the wall "tick- tock - tick- tock!" There's something therapeutic about it.
When I want to go out for a pint somewhere with some atmosphere, it gets a bit more complicated. For one thing people don't go out here until LATE, VERY LATE! - They eat late, they drink late, they party late. They go to work late! - A city of vampires if ever there was one!
Bars mid week are empty until 11pm so forget about the after work tipple. If your lucky the bar will get some traffic just before midnight.
Clubs don't open at weekends until 1 am and won't be busy until 3am and wrap up somewhere between 7-10am. Siestas are a way of life and one which I've adapted to....zzzzZZZZZZZZZ!
....Where was I? ah yes....
There is an exception however......
From the same person who brought you 24 Hour Alcohol Delivery comes the true story a local bar that is offering the following:
For Girls : Free beer and free national drinks everyday noon to midnite
For Guys : incredible HAPPY HOUR with free pizza - 3PM-8PM.
Address: Uruguay 1175 (between Santa Fe & Arenales), Recoleta

- Free Beer for everybody with lunch.
- Free domestic booze for the ladies until 10pm.
Before I get slapped for being a sexist pig (again) - I am really only doing this as a public service announcement for you thirsty ladies. - SO ENJOY!
Thanks to fellow blogger Julia at Evans Gate for reminding me about this den of inequity.
