There's nothing worse than a generic bar or restaurant with no personality. If you're paying money to go out and eat or drink somewhere, you want the place to have character - otherwise you would've just stayed at home! Here at Bored Panda, we believe in celebrating the establishments that go the extra mile to get a laugh or a smile out of their customers, and probably pour a damn good beer while they're at it. That's why we've compiled this list of some of the funniest, kookiest, and just brutally honest things people have encountered at their local spots. Vote for your favourites below, and let us know if you've ever laid your own eyes on them!

I've seen a note saying "Don't tap, you stress the banitzas". P.S. Banitza is a traditional food in Bulgaria, something like a strudel, but stuffed with white cheese.
