Beer Gardens

While traditional bars close or remain half empty, Latvia's growing economic crisis has brought beer garden prices tumbling down. In the Old Town's main square, faced with competition from a red fire engine beer pump, you can get a half-litre for just ninety santimes (about one pound ten) with blankets and really bad live music thrown in for free.

Just don't forget your coat.

I paid £3.50 for a pint of Becks Vier (wtf?) sitting on a stool on the pavement in Islington last night.

Was it worth it? No.
