I chatted to somebody just now as they returned from working in WS. They are opening tonight. The workers from LK Metro either haven't got home yet or haven't woken up but I'll let you know when I see them.

...And the LK Crew are working tonight too...

This sort of topic crops up every year often several times.

It always makes me laugh how individuals go into absolute panic mode if bars shut for a day or two. It becomes hunt the bar in the middle of nowhere (or even right outside Mike's dept store) that is serving beer in a coffee cup or "I have stocked up from the 7-Eleven!" 

It doesn't hurt anyone to do without alcohol for a day or two and the only real losers are the bar owners who lose income they can never replace.

Always freelancers hanging around for rent.

Except for alcoholics who go into physical withdrawal.

Better to just stock up... 🍸🍺🥂🍷

. . .

Alcohol withdrawal syndrome

Symptoms that occur when someone stops using alcohol after a period of heavy drinking.

Symptoms of alcohol withdrawal can vary widely in severity. In severe cases, the condition can be life-threatening.

Symptoms may occur from two hours to four days after stopping alcohol. They may include headaches, nausea, tremors, anxiety, hallucinations, and seizures.

In many cases, alcohol withdrawal requires medical treatment and hospital admissions. Medications may be used to treat physical symptoms while counseling and support groups help with controlling drinking behavior.

I don't have any personal experience to fall back on but I imagine that anyone with such a dependence would never leave themselves in a position where a day or two of closures would preclude their own access to alcohol.

I very much doubt such individuals are the ones that always post bemoaning the inconvenience of not being able to visit their favorite watering hole for a day or two.

One can only hope that just possibly a day or two of withdrawal symptoms might be the catalyst for somebody with a dependence to seek out the help and assistance to overcome such an alcohol dependence. 

I know, easy for me to say!
