As I got a bollocking from the BE for ignoring the "dry night" sticky at the top of the page, you can expect similar treatment, perhaps.

I was sure I had heard that the holiday for Mos birthday would be moved to the 17th to coincide with the weekend?

It has been moved to 17th. It's been done for my birthday which is nice of the authorities.

Not sure, but even if they have moved the dry night that'll be on 16th. They won't want to ruin my birthday

The holiday has moved to give a long weekend, but the 14th is still dry.

Yes lets stop the expats drinking on a weekend, hope the dry night is the 14th and not the 17th purely selfish of course

Please see my post above yours. Yes the 14th IS dry!!!!

Also I can't stand this attitude of many expats who think it's their god given right to drink. Booze is the cause of many hassles if you ask me, so many people abuse it and then wonder why they get into trouble.

I also think it's tragic that so many people seem to rely on alcohol to have a good time, how sad must their lives be for that to have to happen?

Certainly rather be at a party with booze than without it, read into that what you may

Of course its our god-given right.
