We chanced upon Wayne's Bar (with a global world logo, there's no mistaking its real reference to Wayne's World) in the Old City -- Vielle Ville -- of Nice, and found a tiny old (low ceiling, narrow room, old plaster walls) pub with a tiny stage and a surprisingly good band covering 90's anglo rock classics. The 18-year-olds crowd in promptly at 10:30 when the band starts and the drink prices double and the crowding is claustrophobic but friendly -- a mosh pit that the waiters encourage. You know it's France when the band members quaff not a water bottle but a green wine bottle. The microphone was mercifully low, thus reducing the chance that anyone would mistake the singer for a real Englishman, but the band was surprisingly good at covering Anglo rock hits, and the audience responds enthusiastically. Quite an exciting cultural experience. The Guinness on tap is a bit cool, and the Grolsch a bit bitter, but the overall atmosphere overcomes any minor objections to taste -- you have, by definition, had a Good Time.
