Laimetava / you can eat ME

Playriga.com the site that started as a web site for tourists, evolved to be against tourists (especially sex tourists), afterwards changed again to focus on art and culture and eventually crashed and was restored from old backup!
The site has still has prices in Lats (LVL), pages are not updated since long long time ago, but in any case it stays as it is as a nice souvenir to old times.

I visited this place for one reason that is to check: Is it a rip off? Rumors in Riga say that it is but I wanted to check for myself.

This is how it went:

I got into the place, It had a bar, some casino game machines, tables on the side and a room in the back that was the smoking room with some tables too.

Three girls were sitting on the bar, they were not gorgeous like many other girls in Riga but they looked good. Since the moment I entered they were all looking at me. I figured that it was not because these girls found me very attractive.

I asked the man in the bar if there was something to eat in this place. One of the girls smiled and said "you can eat me". I ordered pizza and juice (what can I say, I was very hungry and also did not want to get drunk in this place, besides this my alcohol tolerance level is very low, I am a creature of the desert and alcohol is not common there like in the countries of the north).

The pizza was not tasty. Afterwards I went to the room in the back to smoke a cigarette. Four other girls were sitting there. They invited me to join them and I did.

They were actually very nice, spoke English well, we smoked a cigarette and talked for a while.

One of them told me about the problems in Latvia, she said that she hates living here. I told her that I think that Riga is a safe place, that I see police everywhere and it makes me feel safe.

She told me that it's not safe in Riga and seems like she really wanted me to know it. She said that many bad things happen here in Riga, for example she told me about a bus that was forced to stop in the middle of his way by armed people who forced all the people to give them their wallets.

I went back to the room with the bar, finished my pizza and asked for the bill.

The bill arrived: 4.5 LVL for the pizza. not cheap for a pizza. I'd say that this place is just a place with overpriced non tasty pizza but not as a rip off...

I paid in cache and said goodbye to the nice girls on the bar, I said that I would come again and visit (not sure that I will but if so than definitely not for the pizza)
