Default Dry 7s ???

So the dry night for the prophets birthday will be Thursday 6pm till Friday 6pm. Will this mean that the 7s Friday will be dry? That’s gonna hurt the sales a bit.

That weekend is one of the biggest money spinners of the year for F&B. A lot of good business to be lost potentially.

Profit before Prophet again maybe !!!

I wasn't planning on going this year but seriously, DRY SEVENS??? Surely that's not going to happen? They'll lose a fortune..... and it's not like its a different weekend every year.

People have been asking on their FB page. They've replied that it's going to be "business as usual".

What did you expect? With business as usual for brunches and bars during Ramadan, it'd be silly to make the 7s dry.

Nice. As DXB says with a wet Ramadan it hardly makes sense.

Not so much panic as disbelief!

I'm not attending the 7's......or more accurately 'I'm currently not planning' on attending the 7's this year.... although, you never know.

I haven't been for years now. Full of early-20's recruitment consultants and estate agents. The *****.
