thats a quick pint
not at £1.69 in a wetherspoons. it should almost be encouraged.
Fuck. I've been in London so long I can no longer even comprehend beer that cheap.
not that cheap? I thought they were the same everywhere?
jesus man, there's plenty of opportunities inside and out of zone 1!
I go in them a bit and I know they're cheaper but maybe I'd not spotted how cheap. I guess it's 'cos I tend to go to gig venues more than I do to pubs.
I've never been that keen on Wetherspoons to be honest - sure it's cheap and it's a great place for a quiet drink but I do find the lack of music creates a lack of atmosphere.
PS to Dalkin, Wetherspoons prices vary from place-to-place. While Wetherspoons is cheaper than most pubs in London, the London ones cost more than, say, Brighton.
PPS to Crablin - that glass in the mouth thing is really impressive!
what gig venues actually offer cheap beer? Surely there's a gaping hole in the market for a Wetherspoons stylee venue with cheap drink. I don't even bother drinking when I go to most gigs because I can't afford it. Say for a medium sized band it's £15 for the ticket plus £5.20 travelcard and a couple of rounds is probably £20+
The buffalo bar prices (minus the £1.60 Troy beer) in particular are a joke.
in the wetherspoons on highbury corner.
the band will play on the balcony seating and the gig will be shown on the screens around the pub.
But isn't their "music-free atmosphere" one of the big selling points. Do they let people put gigs on?
i am joking :(
but (aside from the fact they probably wouldn't let you) it would be a brilliant idea!
and i can drink a pint in 7.3 seconds(pb) so with a older guy i suppose its possible. good clip!
but what about PINTS?!?!?
that was funny. i need acknowledgement.
I fell over.
You should sell the film rights. ;)
Have you not seen the davinci code ?
But I may now rent it on the basis of that post.
£45 a week is all you need to get 3 meals a day from one.
...although far more than I spend on food at the moment.
But that's useful to know. I'm about to start a new job in Central London so I'm probably gonna go out in the evenings without coming home first most nights so I need to find cheap places to eat.
Incidentally Wetherspoon's breakfasts are damn near unbeatable. About £3.95 for the biggest cooked breakfast I've ever seen. Nice.
£1.99 here. £1.99! It's actually quite outrageous the price differences between the centre of london spoons and south east london.
and the mega-huge breakfas was £3.95?
Maybe I got it wrong. But I'm basing it on prices in Shepherd's Bush so I doubt it'd be Central London prices.
I swear, that is the most depressing thing ive heard in my, never the less short, life.
