    Default drinks were free

    If you see any problems, can I have your comments? Thanks always.

    1. You seemed to very upset because you were charged for drinks ,which you thought were for free.

    2.The drinks were free but only between 7 and 8 p.m. as advertised. (You should have checked the time on the promotional ad one more time before you came to the restaurant)

    3. Everyone at the bar enjoyed free drinks between 7 and 8 p.m.

    2.As clearly advertised, drinks at the restaurant were free between 7 and 8 p.m. only. These times appear on the promotional ad, and responsibility lay with those attending to be aware of this fact.)
