Serving Alcohol in Jordanian restaurants and cafes has become as popular as serving coffee and more popular than serving water, if you ask the lovely waiter from Philippine for cup of water, ice tea, slush (NOT Smoothie) or a milkshake s/he will give you weird look.
Having alcohol in cafes are restaurants isn’t cool as many think especially when all uncool folks will be around the alcoholic place and of course they will drive back to home, DRUNK.
Chuparosa is a newly established cafe and they advertise themselves as
Fancy .. yet .. non-alcoholic! exactly, things can be fancy without serving alcohol.
Being against serving alcohol in restaurants and cafes doesn’t mean I have religious reasons, although they do affect my opinion on this matter but there are many reasons behind such opinion, I mean if you want alcohol go to bar, enjoy your life and then call parents, family or one of your friends to drive you back home and you are lucky if you live close to Rover’s Return, go home walking, OK?
Drinking in Jordan and especially among Muslims Jordanians NOT Christians is matter of showing off, losing control, forgetting about your babe and not enjoying a lite-shot of it, if you want me to elaborate then I can tell you that I have never seen a Christian friend drunk but have seen many Muslims friends drunk, losing control and then doing mistakes like sharing private stories or going out fighting with anyone (fortunately not with people sitting with him :D).
Just to make myself clear, I’m not against serving alcohol but against making it very public and easy to get, at least because we have unreasonable generation, our drivers are crazy enough without drinking and we have enough anger that the whole World Alcohol wont serve it.
