Friday is the eve of Halloween. Lan Kwai Fong still saw no crowds at around 8pm, nor did we see the many costumed "ghosts" in previous years.

Although many bars are full of outdoor locations, there are few customers indoors.

According to regulations, bar customers can only eat and drink at the table, that is, they are not allowed to "drink while walking."

In Lan Kwai Fong on Friday, there were no customers "drinking while walking", but there were bar customers drinking at the entrance of the bar, while the clerk handed the customers to the customers and took away the glasses after drinking; and there were those standing outside the bar. The number of customers reached five, which is suspected of violating the current four-person "restriction order".

In addition, there is also a bar with a maximum of eight customers. Customers of this station are also excited to dance to the music, and some people even block the reporter's camera.

However, not everyone at this station has a seat, and some of them only drink at the table.

On October 30, the police officers brought the horn to Lan Kwai Fong to remind those present to observe the gathering restriction order, otherwise they would be charged with a fine of 2,000 yuan.
