Hello everyone, this is my first post, and I'm not pretty sure about how this works. My problem is that I need to identify mistakes and correct them. If there are no mistakes, I should say why it is correct. I don't know whether this sentence is correct:

"In that dreadful little place that has the impertinence to call itself a town there is NEITHER a restaurant NOR a café OR even a bar open at 9 p.m."

My question is whether we can have a coordinated sentence with neither+nor+or (as the one above). And besides, I think a comma should be placed after "town".

what do you think?

Thanks in advance,
Vic.

    Yes, I agree with bennymix: where you link two things like this with "neither...nor" then if you add a third one, you need another "nor" rather than "or".
