THE DARK SIDE OF HONG KONG NIGHT LIFE 1

When next in Lan Kwai Fong and flowing along with the throngs be VERY careful what is suggested to you by some of the staff at ZINC.

After a great night at a club we had never been to before called Geronimo- unpretentious, a bartender totally into his music, some very pretty females and a good international mix of people- we dropped by ZINC for a drink.

We order three vodka, lime, sodas- Belvedere vodka.

The waitress recommended ordering a bottle of Belvedere instead of three separate glasses.

Thinking here was the Mother Teresa of bars looking after our purse strings, we said, sure.

At the end of our round of drinks, came the bill: $1,800 for THREE vodka lime sodas and a big bottle of Belvedere vodka barely touched.

Look, we don’t mind admitting mistakes, but we loathe being ripped off and on this night, we were well and truly ZINCED off.

Er, no, we won’t be going back.
