Please post your suggestions for drinks you'd like to see more or some promotions on.
We obviously cant guarantee the suppliers will be willing to offer us a promotion but its nice to know which ones you want us+the venue to ask them about.

on the cards as soon as they get a few extra bottles, they just don't want to do it while running low

This is probably something to bring up with the management as a thing they should take up with coke rather than something the pub should be expected to bear solo really.

all promotions are done this way {none are usually borne by the venue}
they convince the supplier that if they give them X amount at Y price they will sell more than usual, and the haggling and eventually a promotion. usually along the lines of cheap booze on night x usual price the rest of the batch {say pint normally 5 bar gets promotion from supplier for 4.50 so does one night at 4 rest 2 nights at 5 and hopes all doesn't sell on the cheap night or they loose a lot}
none of the above figures are real of course but you get the idea

so the supplier takes a hit but gets a bigger order
the bar takes a hit if its more successful than anticipated and is stuck with too much booze wasting space(money) if its less successful than anticipated {also as the order next time will not be big {because of the leftovers still to sell} the supplier wont be offering promotions on that drink again, as the sales didn't really happen}

btw the venue has been asked to follow this thread and reply here if not too shy.

Yeah but the free coke deal was one that's entirely handled by Coca-Cola as a publicity stunt which confered no risk upon the premesis. It seems that it ended in December 2009 anyway though, according to their website, so it might not be possible anyway.

I'm pretty sure it was vodka & redbull, I doublechecked with the friend I was there with, he remembers the same thing...
It could have been 2 vodkas and a can of redbull for €10, though, would have been back in october or november, I think.

Forgot to chim ein closer to the date, but the Twisted Pepper has Red Bull (or Red Bull Substitute Beverage) on tap for a very reasonable price. Might be worth looking into.

Posted by: Alan Doherty (alan_ie)

define reasonable? per pint or 1/2pint
{just asking as I'm sure the venue would like to know}

At a guess I'd say it was a half to three-quarters of a pint, with a lot of ice, and it was two euro for that. Given the percieved volume of the glasses it seemed like a great deal at the time. Even three or four euro would have been pretty good for that much really.

Re: Well.....

omg how did i not suggest the classic snakebite n black

but WTF? is liquid heroin?? (i am assuming this is the name given to a legal alcoholic beverage, not for instance the great but unfortunatly illegal Laudanum which is close to a literal description of that name)

Re: Well.....

liquid heroin - so I've been told - Is a shot mix of Is goldschlager + jager and sambuca.
This request is from Jennifer byrne , a friend of mine , a load of us plan to be into dominion on the 29th for a mock wedding.
