It's not yet Happy Hour, so they wait

Four ex-Ria Stars players are walking down a street in Durban.

Four ex-Ria Stars players are walking down a street in Durban.

Then they turn a corner and see a sign that says "Old Timer's Bar".


They look at each other, then go in. "Come on in," says the bartender.

The men do and then all ask for a beer.

"That'll be 10 cents each, please."

They can't believe their good luck. They pay the 40 cents, finish their beers, and order another round.

Again, four excellent beers are produced with the bartender again saying, "That's 40 more cents, please."

They pay the 40 cents, but their curiosity gets the better of them.

They've each had two beers and so far they've spent less than a rand.

Finally, one of the men asks the bartender, "How can you afford to serve beers as good as these ones for 10 cents apiece?"

"Here's my story. I'm a retired tailor, and I always wanted to own a bar.

"Last year I hit the lottery for R25 million and decided to open this place.

"Every drink costs 10 cents, wine, liquor, beer, all the same."

"Wow. That's quite a story," says one of the men.

The four of them sipped their beers and couldn't help but notice three other guys at the end of the bar. Since they walked into the bar, the four hadn't had a drink in front of them, and hadn't ordered anything the whole time they were there.

One man gestures at the three at the end of the bar without drinks and asks the bartender, "What's with them?"

The bartender says, "They're the Amazulu FC legends from KwaMashu and they're waiting for HAPPY HOUR.
