Yesterday my daughter returned home from the Stereosonic Festival in Melbourne. She was as red as a beetroot. !
Yesterday, I sent her multiple messages to drink plenty of water. I guess I also should have reminded her to apply the sun screen that was freely available !! As a mother you never stop worrying !!
My daughter mentioned to me that it was a great festival and everyone was amazingly friendly. She informed me, that even people that she didn’t know were hugging each other. I thought to myself could this be the influence of drugs on the scene !! I shouldn’t always look at the negative but I can’t help it. I guess it has something to do with my previous policing days !!
My daughter did mention to me that she was really surprised that they were serving Vodka Red Bull at the event. I believe it was the common alcohol beverage for the event.
I wonder how the RSA bar staff manage the drinks responsibly at these events. In addition to the affects of alcohol they would also have to manage people that have abused caffeine and in some cases drugs.
What a hard gig that would be?? I am not sure how these events are permitted to serve this combination. To me it doesn’t fit under the Duty Of Care Umbrella ?
