'Allow Fight Chain' controls whether the party can pick a fight in the tavern and provides a chain in the event editor to place a Combat or other event; by default it is checked, but it is up to the designer to add a the necessary event. 'Allow Drinks' controls whether or not the party can buy drinks in the tavern; by default it is unchecked, so you need to check so that drinks can be added.
