It's bloody expensive. More expensive than the UK. Beer seems to be similar price though. I just get my mates to bring some over in dutyfree when they come out

What time on Friday morning does the Ski Club event start? We are early birds in our family...tending to avoid that big yellow ball in the sky.

I drink enough but mostly on a Thursday night in the bars. I'm not a big wine drinker, prefer to drink wine with mates.
I stick to the beer normally
