All day drinking is now 21 years old!
I can (just) about remember the excitement of knowing that come 3pm you did not have to wait until 'early doors' for another pint, and can recall seeing people rushing from bar to bar on first day pub crawls. Eventually the novelty wore off, and any excitement there had been was tempered by the knowledge that strict 11pm shut downs put us well behind our European cousins.
Eventually we caught up. Cheers!
