Going tonight, and trying to look mildly suave. Pretty chuffed with the silliness of it all!
Never heard of Peel.
I know it's wanky. Apparently you even have to give them a 'case' to come in. I'm unsure if this is going to be worthwhile or not although get to dress up like a 'dick' with the thinly being all femme fatale
screaming 'I want to get pissed you idiots' over and over again. That should do it.
and torch the place
(disclaimer: I don't know how C'Lol dresses in real life)
and i dress like someone who has fallen through an oxfam while trying to shave his beard blind
Imagine I didn't grow up in Prohibition-era USA and explain what this means.
with them working on a specific case. As if they're actual PI's.
I know. I know.
like justify it
I was just going off Balonz's use of the term speakeasy.
Any acting? I don't think I would like this
let the guys do all the talkin' and you'll get in fine
and never break it. Be racist, smoke inside and give at least one woman a backhander across the cheek.
Then torch the gaff.
at one point the barman screams 'it's just pretend, it's just pretend' and then whisper in his ear 'I know it is'.
man alive they don't make it easy. One part of me thinks that would be fun, a much larger part think it's look like a bunch of old granny cock for people who want to dress up like some spengs from Mad Men or something and be all sophisticated and stuff when in actual fact they are dead on the inside and it's only a matter of time before they are dead on the outside.
so time is of the essence, biscuit. Avanti!
...but hope you have a good night, champ.
hope the couch is comfy, the ready meal delicious
the derision of the boards
I like to watch people get really angry about things like a themed bar. I know I fly off the handle here but normally it's when someone's calling me a cunt. There's a large number of people on here who have - *have* to have their opinion heard on how stupid and arrogant and LONDON people are for doing something silly with their time.
Pound for pound, they probably have a higher blood pressure than me. Life is good when you're fancy.
I don't recall getting angry, or calling you a cunt. Just made an observation that amused me.
Although while I'm here you are being obscenely smug in this thread, for reasons I'm really unsure of :/
and it was a lighthearted nudge. Smug about what? Going to a place? Standard mala banter? Get over it and have a coffee or something
But fair enough.
i blame the intertrons for misinterpretation of tone, and i apply that rule as much to myself as to anyone else so my perception of your grumpiness is probably similarly unfounded
Not being grumpy at all! Just making a long-winded and hyperbolic comment on the place for (failed) comic effect. Wasn't making a comment on you personally within it in the slightest.
Just know that I am in a gooooooood mood.
go outside and get a bit of fresh air, come back in and we'll all talk about biscuits or something.
He's a cheeky scamp who's inexplicably good at pushing buttons of soft southerners. I think it might be because of his attraction to them but I can't be sure.
just a nice gentle stream of piss taking and you're the discarded cigarette butt that we are pissing over in an effort to tear open your tobacco innards. Does that work?
Adults get to play dress up and/or go somewhere a bit different.
Never been to E&P but been to Danger of Death which was quite cool and Nightjar (doesd that count?) which I liked.
I am unsure of almost everything. I don't think I have ever really made a decision that I have not thought questioningly of. Be that before or after.
However, I can say with utmost assurance and rigour, that I will never set foot in this abomination so long as I am still able to draw breath.
i need absolutely no excuse to get my Gary Sparrow suit on, 30s and 40s fashion's a big win for me, and i can't say i've never been to the odd do that sounds vaguely similar.
The only issue, as always, is with people (not necessarily the OP, but often people who just happen to live in London, or even very specific parts of Manchester, and use the internet a lot) and their obsession with wanting to be seen doing someting which is different or apparently new.
Idk, it's probably a problem on my part. Stuff like this would probably be vaguely interesting if you accidentally stumbled upon it yourself or something, but when people are all "WHHHHHHHHHHHHAT, YOU'VE NOT BEEN TO ALMOST FAMOUS!?!" my brain shuts down.
a lot of it is that, for sure. Using places you just need to show up to as some kind of status symbol. It's definitely pretty manifest in London. Every other week people used to scream that I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU'VE NOT DONE SECRET CINEMA. Etc. But on the other side of it's also fun to be a geek still, and I feel fully justify that I was a proper nerd when i was about 4 years old, so dressing up like Dick Tracy makes me more excited than it should :)
and get back to nature and away from shallow image obsessed types.
have a nice time though.
i didn't mean to this this either.
make sure you speak like the Continental Op at all times.
or horrendous, with not much room for manoeuvre in the middle
but that place looks hilariously cuntish! :)
it's alright, i mean i can't deny that. But there's a small odds it's just full of geeks :)
that would be funny.
My LME credentials are obviously going down the pan
Can't be doing with the acting faff to get in though
I assumed it would have closed when the fad for these things passed a year or two back.
Like you want them to find out if your brother in law in Halifax is faking his disability allowance so you can cut him out of your wife's will. and just wear a pullover and slacks, like a newsagent would.
it fails the massive bag of giblets internet filter.
I'll sure be jealous with my half a mild when playing skittles!
Did that come up from the South?
we all lined the streets and had a big party celebrating it.
you don't really get to say big if you're not in London come on mate you know that.
