Yes YABVU for telling us that, actually. I am currently in Dubai where there are no off licences. I would love to have a large glass of chilled white wine in the garden. Alas, I can only dream.

Gin here.

Yes, YABU as I am now insanely jealous.


BornAgainDomesticGoddess · 25/04/2011 15:01

Oh, f* O**!!! Grin

Sorry lemonbeaver, I'm only joking, enjoy your wine Smile !


worraliberty · 25/04/2011 15:03

I'm weird like that. I love a drink at night, especially a chilled white wine in summer but I just never drink alcohol in the day.

Perhaps it's because I find it so more-ish Blush


lemonbeaver · 25/04/2011 15:03

And there i was trying to just for that i'm going to have some nibbles and homemade salsa as well Smile!!

Oh dear god I'm so pleased to hear that Grin

And if you could also refrain from saying 'they're simply to die for' that would also be good {twitching}


QuintEggSentialPaints · 25/04/2011 15:14

yab totally u.

It should be ME.

oh, hang on, we have 7 degrees and rain. And no chance to sit in the garden for another few months.


dubaipieeye · 25/04/2011 15:16

Bornagain, there are off licenses round the back of nearly every supermarket in Dubai. You just need an alcohol license to buy it - do you know anyone who has one? If I were there I would offer you a glass of white in my garden!


lemonbeaver · 25/04/2011 15:18

Must go DH has just returned and is sharing wine.....but has said all are welcome....Wink

dubaipieeye, unfortunately I don't have an Alcohol Licence Sad. Anyway, I didn't think there were any off licences here? Why does everyone go to Barracuda?


dubaipieeye · 25/04/2011 15:30

Barracuda is tax free - much, much cheaper. There are loads of off licenses - MMI and A&E are the main brands - usually tucked away round the back of Spinneys. You can go along and ask for a license application and usually they will serve you that day as you are applying...whereabouts are you? I'll try to think of your closest shop...

No way!!! I'm in The Springs.


dubaipieeye · 25/04/2011 15:48

I say usually - no promises! We lived on the Ranches before and the A&E there would serve us on "their" license before we had ours and when ours expired...

here is a list of A&E stores and

here is a list of MMI stores.

Happy drinking!!
