Default Bahrain Eid al-Adha 2013 info please

Hi everyone, I have returned to Riyadh after been away for a few years.

I have been here 2 months and am looking to get out for the 3 day holiday Ed al-Adha I used to spend a lot of weekends down in Bahrain but want to know if there will be a alcohol ban during the holiday (14,15 & 16 October).

any advice welcomed,

thanks,

Are you kidding? An alcohol ban during the holidays? Alcohol will be available in plenty. Its going to be a weekend party with people drinking themselves int oblivion

Be safe, drink responsibly.

Enjoy, sober up with a full English at the Warbler. Perhaps the best English breakfast ever
Then back to the bar
Repeat as often as is necessary to feel normal

Personally I reckon Eid in Dubai or AD would be better
