Not quite to point 1, definitely to point 2, haha

Loads of people sat around drinking booze on the street outside, and there were no more gigs at the hall (although I hadn't been planning to do any more, it was a one-off really haha)

but how though ?
someone out there must have tried to do this - how did it work out ?
was it a struggle to even find a suitable hall ?
i'd imagine this must very hard or else it would be happening.

most venues get a huge chunk of revenue though booze unfortunately.
apart from Jigsaw everywhere else i go to gigs is heavily alcohol orientated.
in certain places (Phibsborough) pubs don't even serve orange juice !
Sfx had no bar. Granted this was twenty years ago, but it can be done.

Post of the week winner: 22nd March, 2013
I brought a girl on a date to a gig a few years back in the Academy 2. When we got there we found out it was an 'all-ages' gig and no alcohol was being served (I don't drink anyway, but she did). The average age of the revellers was about 15 and it was a little embarrassing. We stood down the back with the parents, and we were still the oldest there.

Me and Mrs. egg_ went to see Galantis in the Olympia 2 years ago, and we were probably 30 years older than the median punter. The only other people near our age were a few Dads keeping an eye on their daughters, and a couple in their 40s off their heads gazing into one another's eyes. On the way out the kids were like "gotta run for the last bus cos I've double geography in the morning"

Galantis were fairly shit, fwiw.
