They can charge, I think, a MAXIMUM of $0.20 for a glass of water - I 
remember seeing it somewhere in the Fair Trading Act when I was 
studying Law - I'll try to find the reference for curiosity value...:-)

It's a very "American" thing - as soon as you sit you have a jug of 
water and glasses - but then again, Adelaide is slightly (!!) more 
classy than Sydney... Why do you think they have the best Red's in the 
world (Hill of Grace !!!)
