PALMERSTON NORTH - The Fitz
Saturday October 28th, 2006
Sad to say, about two years after I visited the pub of my namesake "the Fitz", the owners Kingsgate Hotel closed the doors on the bar that was the haunt of many a uni student and dive bar connoisseur. Apparantly running a bar is not the hotels core business - go figure.
As reported in the local media, on the night of last drinks, there were some strict rules being enforced. These included the following: NO drinking with your right hand, NO kissing, NO throwing up, NO getting naked (at least until before 10PM anyway), NO urinating in a public area, and absolutely NO dancing.
