Seeing as it was Friday we decided to keep things traditional and headed out for a couple of beers.
Another local bar ("Freebird") seems to attract a lot of ex-pats and though not quite to our liking, it does offer a happy "hour" from 17:00 to 19:00 and they do serve the best beer- Tiger. At $5.50 a jug (standard price) it becomes even better value during happy time and so we forsake traditional surroundings and company and settle for "cheap".
This was also our first visit to the bar on a Friday and it turned out that they have another discount scheme for "Lady's Night". Any drink ordered by females will get them the next one free and despite wifey having me in tow and that we were sharing jugs of beer, she still qualified for the BOGOF, thanks to the waitress pointing this out at the time.
We had a good night and were utterly surprised at how little the bar tab came to, particularly as we managed to sneak in a hefty pizza as a "snack" too. Top evening out and we'll be back soon.
