The places that refuse to go on strike!

In social media there is a list circulating of bars is San Jose where everyone can have fun while the demonstration passes

Since Friday night, circulating on social media is a list of places where the effects of the strike on Monday – or the rest of the week –  against the tax plan, will not affect.

Bar La Flota. No strike here.

We are not talking about hospitals, clinics, or much less public institutions, it is a selection of recognized bars in downtown San Jose, Barrio Mexico, Alajuelita and Heredia, where there will be no shortage of anything, on the contrary, there will be an abundance of “ricas comidas” (great meals) and alcohol.

The select list includes bars such as La Bohemia in downtown, La Flota in the barrio La California, Rio de Janeiro and Castro’s Bar in Barrio Mexico, and the El Gran Vicio in the Central Market, all in Chepe (San José.

In the barrios south of Chepe, in Alajuelita there is Los Maderos, but beware of staying stuck there, there is also the Cali bar, the Conce Abajo, and the emblematic 8 de Diciembre. In those watering holes the word “huelga” (strike) is missing from the dictionary.

What would you rather be doing this, this (as in the photo) or cooling off with a cold beer while the strike passes you by?

In those bars, the sounds of demonstrators will be drowned out by the flow of beer and other spirits, a plate of wings, a good chifrijo or cervichazo.

Stress goes out the window, no blockades inside, just good music. No shortage of cold beer, unlike the gasoline stations expected to be out of fuel by Wednesday.

La Flota, founded in 1957, located 100 meters from the Legislative Assembly, where most of the protests are expected to take place, has a brave plan to face the strike.

- paying the bills -

Its owner Ana Carballo says she will have a special lunch and at a special price all who want to beat the strike. The ¢2,000 colones lunch includes soup, rice, beans, meat, salad, and drink.

At La Bohemia, Gorgio the owner assures the beer will be cold.

At the La Bohemia, “We will offer the usual, a good deal, good food like meatballs and ‘cubaces’. It seems that on the day of the strike is going to rain, but here it is true that the rain is not going to wet anyone and the beer is going to be quite cold,” said owner Don Jorge Motta, better known as “Giorgio”.
