To the Editor,
Re: Kids, happy hour coming to pubs after rule changes, Dec. 19.
I do not believe that I am different from most of the people in my age bracket. I am a mother, grandmother and even now a great-grandmother who loves children. Just not in pubs.
I am a coffee drinker, and my husband may, on occasion, when in a pub have one light beer. We go for an adult atmosphere, the food and not the booze, a nice meal without children. A lot of kids are well-behaved, but a lot aren’t. When I want peace and quiet and a chance to interact with my lunch friends, I will choose a pub every time. If I go into a McDonald’s for a coffee, I go in with the full knowledge that it may be noisy – if it bothers me, I can leave with my coffee in hand.
My wish is that at least one pub in Nanaimo will have sense enough to remain adults only.
