"Cocooning" and "staycation" also need to be excised from everyday parlance.

If you have ever been in a 'wet pub' around closing time on a busy Saturday night, you'll know what it means. Every surface of the pub is soaked in some kind of fluid, some less mentonable than others

Along with "socially distanced" for every single event where 2 or more people might possibly come within an asses roar of one another

This is what I think of every time I read the expression - a pub soaked in piss. Awful term imo.

It's the logical extension of the effort, which was well underway long before covid, to transform traditional Irish pubs into more "civilised" food establishments. It is the kind of term dreamt up by people who think of a drinking only place as the deviation from the norm. And in turn it normalises the idea that places where eating is more or less expected are the ordinary thing. You get this in America a lot, where only dingy places are "bars" where's anywhere comfortable, even if it looks like a pub, they will start you off with a menu etc, and just coming in to drink is seen as strange.

The long term ambition has been to kill off proper pubs ever since Michael mcdowell was around. Covid has helped a lot.

Tldr: Wet pubs my hairy hole.
