*may only involve one pub. Who can say?
and RUINED Doodle (since deleted, and fuck you all who defaced it, you've ruined the WetherCrawl forever), tentative YES!
I'm in. Saturdays 16/23/30 August are best for me
Please arrange to have it then...
which is still technically summer for the optimistic.
therefore......yes. Are Nedry playing around then? Doing the hits?
Yes. Not next weekend. Not the last weekend in August or the first weekend in September.
so I have a spare pair if anyone's interested
Good ol' Harry.
maybe the live and let live as well?
compulsory Wings rendition opun arrival
Don't you think, Horatio?
Thanks a bunch, Ibbott.
if you make it Leeds
Was it TBO?
Public Art Garfunkel Enemy barman
he's one of the nightshifters
why didn't I do this one first?
I'm free on all of the above.
Because I have no life.
TOO LITTLE TOO LATE, SEAN!
But actually I'll be in Glasgow at some point around then. Don't plan around me (Argentina).
but they're not showing up (2nd and 16th).
We are definitely going to GW this time.
Hills Rd pub crawl down to Inner Sanctum.
I'll be bringing my night goblins
That's right, a Citadel paints joke.
I'd rather come to Fenino :(
I've had to give up drinking for health reasons so pub crawls no longer hold the appeal that they used to.
hope you're ok. x
Stretching summer a bit, but there we go.
(shucks has confirmed, by the way. Waiting to hear back from nedry, tbo, Chuck Garfunkel, pocketmouse and the Osborne Arms)
I'm going to be the only lady, aren't I? #sausagefest #ssp
we've all got ladies on each arm (temporary tattoos courtesy of citadel paints)
I had to leave the room
I've learned my lesson.
good work warny!
so can we end on a pub by the station plz?
Also if any other LMEs wanna join me, a day return to Cambridge is only £16 (!)
Come on LME, now's your chance to meet TEAM BALLBREAKER x
No need to shout.
Will think the options through.
For a day or so, I thought that there were replacement buses and all kinds of shit on the train lines this weekend. But that's next weekend :)
On the assumption that the flying pig will be shut for some reason or other at that time, maybe we should start at the Devonshire arms (or any other better suggestion) and work our way round and back to finish there instead?
And join up with people who have adult responsibilities later.
Might even head up earlier and have a bit of a mooch. I've not been to Cambridge since my awful, AWFUL interview in 2003.
I'm saying yes at the moment, but I might have to reconsider...
First pint is on TEAM BALLBREAKER for being last year's AQOS champ.
that's two drinks already!
If you're anything like me, you've enough to be hammered now. See you there.
Devonshire Arms would be a good first pub - really easy to get to from the station.
How about this for a possible route round? http://i.imgur.com/OnBfArJ.png
Don't blame me if I'm predicting dissers deaths and pouring pints over sadpunk by 9 though.
Route looks good.
unless we went Blue Moon > Free Press > Elm Tree > puking in a taxi > Flying Pig
(and anyone else who gives a shit)
I'm booked to get into Ely at 4.13pm and there's a train to Cambs at 4.25pm.
I need some waterproof trousers.
I think that 4.25pm train is the train through from Kings Lynn. I'll bring train beers. And a sou'wester.
This is making me smile a LOT.
Cambridge pubs are ace, esp. round Mill Road
Enough time to neck a couple of beers!*
* then stagger into whsmith on trying to find the station exit, throw up over the white dwarf section, and get arrested.
Warhammer Visions is the one you shamefully buy, hiding it behind a copy of Razzle and The Daily Mail.
see you in the Devonshire hastily assembling new vampire counts models and wondering why I've bought £3 Guttermouth albums.
I doff my cap to you, sir.
Explaining the rules to a bunch of tipsy DiSers will be fun, right?
(I guess teams would work)
That I'm going to either fall asleep on someone by eight or massively overdo it and throw up on Public Enemy Art Garfunkel.
You've all been (the_)warned.
beerkkake, if you like.
KHORNE THE BLOOD GOOD, LORD OF SKULLS, GOD OF BLOOD, WAR AND MURDER
Apart from h_y_g.
My name's plastic, obvs.
So you're happy with plastic? Good, I've spent hours trying to pronounce pn.
thewarn and/or epimer - could you message or text me your number(s) as I lost yours when I dropped my phone in water a couple of months ago?
And they've got a band called Four Doors Down playing tonight, who Google tells me are a nine piece covers band with a Hammond organ and a horn section.
I'm not even kidding. You might actually be able to request The Mighty Mighty Bosstones!
that sounds top.
I'm currently suffering from a lingering migraine. Hopefully it'll fuck off soon but I'm struggling a bit just now.
Get well soon! X
Hope you recover, I'm currently awaiting Niki at KX.
The first pub is shut for the night. So we're starting in the Kingston on Kingston Street. We're sitting out the back.
Astonishing that both our first and last pubs were shut, but the ones in between were pretty awesome.
What a good evening.
Spent the day in bed feeling awful.
Hope a good time was had by many.
Sorry that you couldn't come; hope you're feeling a bit better today?
Yes, ta. Made the mistake of going out for a "gentle" bike ride in the howling wind and will now be sitting on my couch nursing my poor thighs and lungs for the forseeable.
So there was no nine piece band with a horn section in the end, then?
Sadly there were no nine-piece band... though the pub crawl was pretty ace: Kingston > Cambridge Blue > Alex > Blue Moon > Free Press > attempt at going to the Flying Pig but actually ended up in the Earl of Derby (hmm).
We also played Warhammer Top Trumps.
Shame you couldn't make it Epimer, but understandable if you're feeling rough.
We should meet up more regularly. Great pub selection as well!
+ thewarn knocked over pints (twice I think?) but both times they were empty glasses HURRAH
+ laughed a ridiculous amount
Warhammer Top Trumps (which I think I won, as much as anyone playing Warhammer Top Trumps in the pub can be considered a winner)
Shocking film revelations (Airplane?)
C_C_B telling an anecdote and then apologising for it immediately afterwards
Dry jeans all night
fizzed up everywhere and completely covered me in fizz. I wasn't even dry by the time I got in at 2am for fucks sake.
That's what you get for fucking with Coke AND Tesco at the same time!
I fell asleep almost immediately after eating my sandwich.
obvs I'd been to the Kings Lynn equivalent of Fagito's on the way home
just a shame the osborne arms isn't still around to vie for our custom.
Good night that: cheers guys!
Apologies to those I didn't get to say goodbye to, I had to leg it back to that shit pub because I left my bag there.
And further apologies to thewarn for the resulting hour delay in him getting home.
was quite a sight. Obviously drunker than I thought.
I managed to get on the wrong part of the train at Cambridge (the train divides and the front four coaches go to Kings Lynn). I was mid-piss when a guard knocked on the door and told me to get on the right bit, which luckily I did.
which was why so many of the pubs were shut.
