‘You can’t pay off COVID fines using free drink cards’, Zhivago owners told

TRENT BARTLETT

After copping thousands of dollars in fines for breaking COVID-19 restrictions, the owners of Zhivago have been told that they will have to do better than an admittedly hefty stack of free drinks cards to pay off the penalties.

The offer was the second put forward as the embattled owners attempted to bargain down the amount owing. Their earlier overture of ‘Free entry before 12 and access to the VIP booths’ was also turned down.

The “popular” “nightspot” was fined after one person was spotted repeatedly spitting at the DJ for refusing to play Daryl Braithwaite’s Horses (in an admittedly foolish move on the DJ’s behalf).

Zhivago’s owner [REDACTED] immediately responded to the fine with anger, telling the Adelaide Mail: ‘I’m paying him upwards of fifty dollars, he should play what I tell him to play.’

‘We did not create this virus nor have we aided in the spread of it in this state whatsoever, the only viruses we have aided the spread of is Hep B, herpes, HPV, Coronavirus, HIV, but we have never assisted in getting Victorians across the border in the back of a company vehicle in exchange for $15,000.’

In anticipation of the ensuing legal threats from Zhivago’s owner, we feel the completely unnecessary need to point out that the above article is satire and should not be taken literally. Although it is true that Zhivago’s was fined $5,000 for breaching COVID-19 restrictions. And the below photo was taken inside of the nightclub.

Still no word on whether or not the owner of Zhivago followed through on his threats to sue the NT News for publishing examples of his terrible parking. More as it develops.
