Dunno.
 
But if I were to hazard a guess? It was probably due to the Protestant Reformation.
 
What in the hell is he talking about you say?
 
Simple.
 
Prior to the  prot-reform...
 
...heavy mead, rum, gin, beer and wine drinking and ogling of buxom and, hardly concealed displays of rouged and powered flesh was to be seen throughout Europa for example.  Common. No offense taken. Twas expected so to speak.
 
 
After?
 
Restaurants.
 
 
Old ladies now telling me to have a 'happy holiday' instead of celebrating 'Christ's Mass' with good cheer and kindness towards all my fellow man (tho there I'm in trouble).
 
The only saving grace is Carnival in Rio..Mardi Gras in the 'Big easy' and Fasching in Deutschland.
 
You can thank the Catholic faith for that.
 
Yup definitely the prot-reform and the secular progressives that climbed out from beneath the rocks right after.
 
 
And your welcome.

Thanks to this post I just noticed two of the eight pubs where I lived are now no-longer pubs. however neither has become a restaurant, both have become betting shops. So there you go exchanging one vice for another.

If you mean this the way I think you do, taverns of old were places that sold food as well as drink.  The modern equivalent is a restaurant with a liquor license.

A lot of taverns in the old days also provided beds for weary travelers, as well, but that custom morphed into the hotel with a restaurant and bar, usually upscale these days.

I don't have an answer for why they aren't still called "taverns", though.

I blame the smoking ban and low taxes on supermarket booze. These days, your average working man is reluctant to go down the pub if he can get beer cheaper at the off-license. As a result, landlords jack up the beer prices even higher to stay in business. Since smoking was prohibited, pubs don't feel the same anymore: it was the smoke that neutralised the other smells (bleach from the toilets, fried food, and other peoples body odor)

That and a lack of tradition brought on by 'pc', generally liberal, secularists. They prefer the 'gen 4x' neo-yuppy philosophy.


Which is to say the 'eddie bauer', casual clothing look& $500 polarized 'elleGi' sunglasses from Italia. These are the types who let their urchins get laid and made at Spring break; doped and drunk and, chalk it up as a liberal passage.


These people would get an ass whupping for even attempting to enter the ole 'Barrell Inn' in Temple, Tx. Matter of fact they wouldn't probably get to the door...just have to take in the parking lot.



Especially after they started pontificating on the righteousness of planned parenthood.


And........... the stupid frackers would deserve it.


Amen.


ps. I believe.... tho don't quote me.... as I ain't been there in about 5 years...they still got a sign in the window says ''tie your socialists up and leave them out back.''

Nah...if your the friend of a local and especially a regular..you would get a pass. Tho you might be asked if you were a homosexual....and not using that term.

Otoh...they'd rather ya was gay then a liberal socialist. Even tho most gays are liberal socialists. In their minds they would just promote you to a Log Cabin Republican status then all is well.

By the end of the night you would be in.... because you would have learned how to talk Texan and wanted to go hunting wild hogs or bass fishing.

Thank God there's still a lot of pubs in the UK that still sell good ale. Most towns have at least one bar recommended by CAMRA

Hmmm, In my neck O da woods we have our fair share of Taverns. The next town over, Riverside, has the highest number of bars and taverns per sq. mile in the state.  Which could be the reason our town has the highest number of Churches per sq. mile.Big smile
 
What's vanishing here are the privately owned, individualistic, medium priced resturants.  We have enough of the "chains".
