    Default Alcohol ban

    Does it start midnight the night from Thursday midnight to Friday midnight or from Friday midnight to Saturday midnight?

    I'll drink to that.

    No idea when the alcohol ban happens if it does. Just on selling alcohol, correct?

    As I read it, midnight on Friday to midnight on Saturday? Read the left side, the DR-1 news side. All I know is that I am stockpiling the Sangiovese, locating the earplugs, and except for walking the dog, will be staying home. Have downloaded hours of movies and bought several pre-season Red Sox games. I'm Jewish, so this whole thing about a guy who lived at home until he was 30 and his mother thought he was G*d is not unfamiliar.

    It's 12:00am Friday to 11:59pm Friday. In observance of Good Friday/Viernes Santo.

    In the past on the beach in Cabarete, all bars stop serving, music stops and discos close as Good Friday begins. The next 24 hours is pretty quiet and calm. Then at 12:00am Saturday, the music starts up and alcohol flows.

    Unless you are staying in a hotel that is filled with locals. Most don't go to bars or restaurants anyway. And they might lower the decibels (slightly), but there will be music, there will be dancing, there will be triple-quadruple magnums of rum. All private.

    Good Lord I am so happy to be out of the hotel biz.

    Even restaurants cannot serve "drinks." That's how they describe it on the news side---the left side---on the DR-1 home page. Achekiar.

    If you want a drink their will always be a way. Never fear god has not struck me with lightning and I manage to quest my thirst. Colmados always have the back door open !
