As I was a regular visitor to Cyprus over many years I was conversant with the stupid prices demanded by shops who incidentally do not display prices as its consider3d .. naff. There is a Nicosia based company advertising Japanese meat on FB, costing over 200 euros a kg.!! Whwn considering that the average workers pay is around 800 to 1200 euros a month, such stupid prices get on my tits.

there is an old saying the world of the eelit. If you are asking the price, you can't afford it sunshine. Move along the line.

There are people who thrive on the sentimentality of the idiotic.

Few years back staying at a hotel close to San Jose airport in Costa Rica before catching our early flight back in the morning, decided to go to nearby Hard Rock Cafe for dinner. Upon arrival, we were told by the greeter that since they were going to have live music a little later on, we would need to pay a cover charge of about $8 USD each. I said “no” to the greeter. We are here for dinner and not for the music. You can either try to get additional $16 dollars or for sure lose much more for dinner and drinks for two people, because we are about to start walking. She said, please wait one moment! :D

When the music did come on later on, it was quite rubbish actually. :roll:

Years ago the “House of Blues” on Sunset Boulevard In Los Angeles was a great place for dinner and live music, where the center bar would open into two halves in the evening exposing the stage behind with great music. Unfortunately, it has since closed for good few years ago. :evil:

If it was me, I would have just shrugged my shoulders and moved on to the next one.

My favourite Greek Restaurant that I frequent just changed their menus. They went fusion.

When we got our meals, I said to the owner from Crete that this isn't Greek Food. Where in Greece would they serve this?

Pricey too, but he decided to go for the Australian market.

Oh well, it's time to move on to the next one.

Was the Hard Rock cafe a thing for you? Never found it impressive myself.

Hard Rock Cafe is really not the thing for me usually, it was just a short walking distance from our hotel at the San Jose Airport.

My all time favourite restaurant of over 30 years in San Francisco was one of the oldest, “The Old Clam House”, in the industrial section, miles away from any tourist spots. It was a great casual seafood restaurant with very creative dishes and at great prices with friendly staff. After a day of sailing, about 10 of us would come for dinner, still SF Bay’s water salt all over us and uncombed hair. Then it was sold off and tried to become an upscale Yappie place. Went back just once since and never again.

Milti, it would not surprise me if these outlets with ridiculous prices are nothing but a front for money laundering. Dirty money on paper with virtual customers buys these items, taxes are paid to the government on “sold” items and the washed clean money is deposited into the bank without any real customers. No questions asked! :wink:
