Well, do you know, I might actually be able to top this ... when they established the Salzburger Festspiele (Salzburg Festival) in the Zwischenkriegszeit (time between the wars, in Central Europe this means 1919-1939), there was a beer-hall or a coffee-house (not the Amsterdam variety) run by friars. I have forgotten whether it was the Franciscans or the Capuchins, but in those days they had lay brothers acting as waiters. Must have been a sight for sore eyes, a friar in full garb balancing a trayful of beer steins, and, perhaps, afterwards you could handily confess any sins committed in the meantime ... Hermann
