Bar Customer who blows the highest blood-alcohol content wins free entry to the next week's event!

How would like to win a free round of Newcastle ale for blowing the highest blood alcohol level in California? A bar in England is using the breath test machine to make sure its customers go home properly toasted.

If patrons at "The Attic" in Newcastle are still legal to drive when they breathe into a tube at last call, they will be refunded their tab, because, as the club's promoters state, "We've failed in our mission." As an added bonus, the person who blows the highest blood-alcohol content wins free entry to the next week's event.

Problem is, if the city of Newcastle has its way, there won't be a "next week." "This is not the type of event the local authority will tolerate," declared Newcastle's silly head of public health, who coincidentally objects to the bar selling mixed drinks for under a dollar. Come on! Please don't come down hard on the blessing of cheap drinks.
