Group Of Four Rack Up €265 Bill In Less Than Two Hours As Pubs Reopen
Amid all the excitement of bars, pubs and restaurants reopening, one group of revellers found themselves racking up a €265 bill between the four of them in less than two hours.
Customers have been excited to return to their favourite spots in Ireland - where pubs serving food were allowed to open on 29 June - including four young women who went out for dinner and drinks at The Old Mill in Tallaght, Dublin.
But as with most nights out, things escalated slightly and before they knew it, the group were left staring at a mammoth bill for their table.
They'd worked their way through steak, chicken goujons, chicken wings and chips while catching up over a bottle of wine and a few gins - before one of them had the inevitable brainwave of getting some shots in for the table.
105 minutes and 23 shots, 10 Red Bulls, three Beefeater gins and a bottle of wine later, the friends were handed a bill for €265.50 (£240.42/$300.39) which was split between them.
One of the group told DublinLive: "They were double drinks so not actually single shots together.
"They were double aftershocks and Red Bull thrown in with the odd few shots of baby Guinness. A personal favourite of ours and very tasty."
She added: "We love The Old Mill. It's our local and it's a great spot. It was also lovely to catch up with the girls properly again."

DublinLive also came across a small party of five living it up at The Camden on Friday night, who had managed to make the most of their allocated hour and 45 minutes by working their way through 15 pints of Guinness, eight pints of Bulmers, five glasses of Graffinga Pinot and one glass of Santa Sav Blanc - all washed down with steak, pizza, chicken tenders, and fish and chips.
That session came to €254.70 (£230.54/$288.17), with Shane 'The Dog Dancer' Coppinger telling DublinLive that they were already making plans for another bash over the weekend.
He said: "The minute we came up to the doors, we started getting excited, we were thinking 'yes, we're back! Enter the Dragon!'.
Coppinger, who was left with the bill as friends transferred the money, said he didn't mind paying up, adding: "The gargantuan bill was worth every single penny."
He also said the group were hoping to add a 'few Jager-john-bombs' (your guess is as good as mine) to the bill when they return to the bar at the weekend.
