To take pre-mixed vodka and coke on a the megabus down to london?
before about 3 = wrong
after = zonino!
yes, it is a bit wrong. You've got to last til 3am! And be fine for the next day!
so that's no then...
New question. What should I do with my premixed vodka and coke that's on my desk now?
and sneak it into the pub? So you're not too drunk to find us?
I think i'll take it...
for The Essential Alldayer in 1997. I sat drinking vodka and orange on the allnight bus journey down. I carried on drinking as soon as the offies opened and smoking all day. By the time Lee Scratch Perry was on I was dead on my feet. During Zion Train's set I fell asleep standing up and fell into the person standing in front of me.
I'd advise a good book instead.
At Truck, back in the summer, I cracked my first beer open at 8am. Didn't stop drinking untill about 3am.
four pack for the train down. saves me playing catch up too badly when i get there.
a 4-Pack is probably better than vodka'n'coke.
I'm just thinking that if I buy drinks in London I will be too poor to ever be free of debt again...
but just try and get used to it, and it gets less painful. I now think Â£3 a pint is quite normal...
I pay a pound for a double vodka and coke here! Pint about 1.50 to 2 pounds...
I used to in Birmingham. I get less dangerously drunk here though, so maybe it's a good thing!
I am a raving alcoholic after all...
isn't that much a stretch from Cardiff prices (depending where you drink, obviously).
A pint usually costs me about Â£2.40ish, Â£2.60 for a Guiness.
There's some bars here that charge about Â£3.50 a pint. I don't go to those place.
where Ace lager and White Lightning are the norm a lot of 'nice' bars charge you the same sort of prices. And it's damn near impossible to get decent (non-watered down) Guinness...
They still Brew ACE LAGER?
I have to stop the car and sweep the roads clear of Ace empties...
I want some. Just cause its shit.
I exaggerate. I'm not certain it's still around, but I'm sure I've seen empty cans of it lying around recently. I've never actually tasted it, but I've had what must be the French equivalent, like 30-odd cents a can. It burned out my retinas.
mixed with Piss and Skol... thats what it tastes like.
go with the vodka and coke. it looks less trampy on public transport. plus, i think if i drank 4 beers on a long journey i'd just fall asleep. mixers don't do it to me for some reason...
what you'll pay in gig venues etc. you can get pints a lot cheaper than that!
