Newcastle Bar Encourages Drinking With Breathalyzer
The Attic, a bar in Newcastle, England, is encouraging its patrons to get too drunk to drive home. Every customer can take a breathalyzer test before they leave the bar, and get refunded their tab if they are under the legal limit to drive. The person with the highest blood alcohol content wins free entry to the following week's party.
"This is not the type of event the local authority will tolerate," declared Newcastle's head of public health, who also objects to the bar selling mixed drinks for under a dollar.
