Must...Have...Agua

Posted on Mon, Aug 12, 2013 at 12:01 PM

So I watched a documentary about a year ago that woke me up in a major way to the dangers of plastic and its industry. This resulted in me being very conscious of the amount of plastic I use and restrict it entering my life in as many ways possible. Which also means I don't often buy any drinks that come in plastic bottles unless it's an emergency.

It is my experience that whenever I have frequented any bar in Halifax, that the bar has a pitcher of water with some drinking glasses to one side where one can quench ones thirst as and when needed. Barring that, bar tenders have been more than happy to oblige my request of a glass of water with my alcoholic beverage.

Imagine my surprise and bewilderment where upon a visit to an establishment that boasts the finest in 'pure' karaoke, I couldn't get any water unless I purchased a bottle from the bar. I even tried the old, can I get a glass full of ice for my drinks trick but they weren't having any of it. Correct me if I'm wrong but don't they HAVE to give you water if you ask for it? Isn't it against the law or some such to deny me this request?

Will be sneaking a bottle of water in my purse next time if I want to stay hydrated to sing more Britney Spears. —water loving plastic hater
