It turns out that the Soviet Union was not just sex, and restaurants and even a beer

In one series, "Cops" is one of the scams, explaining own svolochizm, says about the subsequent: "I will distribute in 1986 at the Research Institute, the salary of 85 re., And decency of shoes is worth at least 120 re. So I walked all the way and in the rubber and sneakers in winter and summer. Three pairs of socks wore to keep warm. "

It turns out that the Soviet Union was not only sex, but also restaurants and even pubs

Well, in-1's, in the 86-m rate senior laboratory was 120, seen here and screenwriter worked starlabom early 70's, when it was really 90.

In-2, very solid shoes, no frills, cost 8.10 rubles. And the Italian or English — from 30-40 to 60-70, depending on the thickness of the sole, style and so on. In '82 I bought a Romanian winter men's boots in 90 re. In which took place 36 years (!) Changed twice and thrice candle lightning. Here's what the skin was!

B-3, said it has something between business, the main story is not the case, and the need to be so pettifogger as I am, that is noted. The main thing, "score" a small stud in the psyche of the viewer, and later to the same still, and later, you look at these studs and shelf can "hang", and on a shelf to put whatever you want — will not protest. After all the layers of the psyche are already prepared to accept nonsense as a light of truth.

I think readers and viewers themselves pomnozhat examples, if unattended and listen a little more closely and critically. Here is a program about how people spend their leisure time and leading, asked a representative of the older generation: "And if you wanted to eat? How, then, did it? After all, coffee is not even there! ".

And the lady says, "Well, in general, pies sold on the street and kvass."

That's me for some reason really stuck. Well, in-1's, not counting the pies (a variety of peas for 3 kop., Jam 5kop., And the meat 10 kopecks). Pasties sold 14 kopecks., Belyashi 16 kopecks., Donuts 3 cop. Apart from the street as it may seem, were the pancakes, dumplings, Varenichnaya (serving dumplings with cheese cost 10 kopecks.), Sausage, wineglass, hachapurni, tavern …

First, the Nevsky Prospekt in St. Petersburg was the cafe "Minute", where only sold pies, soup and coffee with milk, tea and cocoa. It was quite Fri hand, that even at rush hour was not a queue. And the cost of lunch, 2-pies, soup and a cup of coffee less than 40 cents. There were just a table and how it does not sound crazy, but the cafe and even restaurants have also been under Russian authority.

The dining rooms were very different from the usual student "toshnilovok" where small portions were worth almost a penny, to workers who have worked to 22.00 where the menu was varied and the portions bolshennymi.

Generally canteens were divided into three categories, plus the highest or outside the category, where there were waiters and could be ordered beer bottled in the dining room on the street Zhelyabov in St. Petersburg. The difference between the dining room and cafe was that the dining never alcohol than beer. Remember the movie where the hero Rolland Bykov, fiercely asked, "And if he was carrying ammunition?" It was all a misunderstanding that it was up to 16.00 dining room, and after 16.00 — restaurant. Just as an illustration of the difference between a good restaurant and a small dining area.

Cafe also had 3 categories and specialties. Restaurant from cafes distinguished by the fact that there has always been a private chef, its procurement of goods in a cafe with a semi-worked more. Restaurants were also 3 categories and specialties. I myself remember it all very well, since quite a long time fed in catering, and memory never complained.

In Karaganda, the restaurant "Central", later it was renamed the "East", my Sunday lunch was: salad "Olivier" hodgepodge team, double bifstroganov triple garnish (this side dish was fried potatoes, and a triple servings come out whole slide browned potatoes) zhigulevskogo two bottles of beer and a cup of coffee. It cost all 2 rubles 20 kopecks, if ordered brandy, then came out 3.00-3.50 Scholarship in the mountain was 43 pe 75 kopecks. If the rise and for the top-10 more.

Now separately on beer, which is also, as it turns out, was not in the Russian government. He opened my eyes to this carousing, Sergei Lukyanenko.

"Drink beer on the playground — It's an ancient Russian tradition. Where else could serve young people wanting to have a drink … well, let's say a beer? No money at restaurants, pubs and bars in the USSR was not in a tiny apartment — a mother, father, grandmother, brother, sister and cousin from the village, who arrived in the city for the sausage … not clear. That children were sitting on the benches and karuselkah overgrown kids, not so long ago poking around in the sandbox, and now drink up beer in the native courts … "

Lukyanenko "New Watch"

I do not know, maybe do not accept manuscripts for publication, if there is not a kick in the side of the boards, or it is an internal need creators. But such reflection can be seen immediately in fiction, because alien story. The truth of the literature on the "popadantsah" — this is in my opinion social order, where the main show which was then a terrible and terrible life. As the hero of the cartoon "On the back of the class" — "To address the true method of targeting a past." So what is a very real war for the conquest of the past.

In Karaganda 32 quarter was a working dining room, next to her beer. Where on one hand released beer and snacks, on the other — kebabs. Beer cost 24 kopecks. kebab stick 28 kopecks. A little to the side was another pub, where beer cost 22 kopecks., and barbecue 24 kopecks., but was out of saiga meat. Beer was brought in huge wooden barrels and Priyam at the sight of a barrel disclosed. Typically, the saleswoman asked: "Yes, someone to open the barrel?" Always was craftsman, deftly took the tool and pump thrust into the barrel. He, of course, poured a cup without a queue and are happy that so successfully logged on the freshest barrel.

In Moscow street Builders had a beer machine, where dropping a coin into a 20 kopecks. for you to pour 435 ml. beer. This Pivnyak shown in the movie "Moscow does not believe in tears", the episode where Gridin begging for a drink. The Chinese Embassy was a cafe where there was always beer, and because it was the place is popular with students. Colloquially called it "Formosa", "Taiwan", "Sino-Soviet".

At the gate of the Pokrovsky was coming off two pubs. At the junction of tram tracks from the station "Kirov" on the street. Chernyshevsky such a machine with dvadtsatikopeechnymi coins. There have been as many as 12 in action taps and because no one came to take beer supplies, so creating a lack of mugs, queues never was. And next on the corner of the basement was a pub, where one can sit. Called it "Seven steps" for specific steps were as in a basement.

Of of favorite places can be called more "Pilsen" in the park im.Gorkovatogo and "Kiev beer hall" at the Kiev railway station, colloquially bullpen.

I list only those where
he visited and loved to visit, and even then not all. And yet it ENEA with its inexhaustible number of restaurants, cafes and pubs. Where in the pavilion "Uzbekistan" right on the terrace stood a brazier and they raced along the Uzbek cook barbecue. Where's pavilion "Animal" worked sausage production line of the freshest meat. You could look at the whole process and get a sausage, which is named with the heat from the heat.

There were coffee shops and kebab with kebabnymi and each landing in Moscow. A Kirov Street, now Miasnitskaya was quite excellent restaurant "Russian tea". Their was a bakery and all the pies, pie were freshly prepared and hot. To tea can be ordered rozetochki honey, condensed milk and jam. Alcohol was not there, it was impossible to smoke, and because there was adored walk with the girls. Of all the surrounding ministries and central boards there running after baking.

Ordinary Russian pub

All prices are for the period of my 60's to early 80's. Then I climbed into the mountains forever, and went with them to an entirely different country. And, to wonder what I am all of fiction, here at the end of a quote from the text of those people who probably Lukyanenko respects.

"There are in our residential area is a public house, located opposite tochnehonko Regional House of Pioneers. The appearance of this institution is quite weird, most of all it reminds White Finnish dot "millions", broken by a direct hit tysyachekilogrammovoy bomb: boring grayish lumps of concrete sticking out at random, alternating balls of rusty steel bars, forced to plan depict marine aquatic plants, at a narrow walkway stretching abrazury windows. And the inside is completely respectable institution, no frills: entrance hall with cloakroom, lounge for — friendly, well-lit circular room, there is always a beer, you can take everyday cool snack of fries served Boeuf stroganoff and specialty meat in a pot, but the cancers I have not ever beheld. Sometimes I go there for breakfast — when I get bored of boiled eggs and fruit yogurt. "

A and B. Strugatsky "Lame fate"

The novel is called "Pearl" is, in fact, he was called "Shell" and was very popular.
