    Default PuG Autumn/Winter meet. Bristol, Nov 14th 2014

    Last year's autumn/winter pub crawl was on 22nd November, so I thought I'd get a thread started so that we can get the discussion of venues and dates out of the way in plenty of time to get train tickets booked when the three-month window opens.

    Oddly, there was almost no discussion of the next crawl when we last got together in Rugby in June. I was thinking maybe we could take up Quinno's kind offer of working out a 'weighted' geographical list:

Seeing as we've done Leeds then Worcester (which I guess most would call Midlands, yes?) then South seems the next logical choice, or certainly the one after next.

    Or we could simply divvy up where everyone lives and do a 'weighted' geographical list
    Brighton was suggested by Mobyduck, eliciting this response from ROBCamra:

    But THAT far south?

    I suggest the next northern one is in Berwick on Tweed or Penrith then.

    Or if hondo is feeling a bit left out how about Aberdeen or Perth?
    When Real Ale Ray and Bucking Fastard kindly joined me on my 60th birthday crawl in Sheffield last week, we briefly toyed with a few ideas for the next PuG meet: I reopened the Brighton question, but we surmised that too many people would find the distances to be insurmountable. Derby was mentioned, and Manchester, either of which would have my support, but the venue that brought the most enthusiastic concurrence was York. This is a fantastic pub city which benefits from extremely good railway connections - less than two hours from Kings Cross, for example, and fares as low as £13 (advance singles).

    OK, that's got the ball rolling...

    That will need to be another 2 day one then!

    Mind you, so would Derby or Manchester.

    Funny you should mention that, just reminded me that it was exactly 10 years ago today that we rebranded the site to Pubs Galore. I know this because in my original version of the site I wasn't recording the time or date (and in the early days the user) that photos were uploaded.

    So the oldest 1,000 or so pictures on the site all have the date of July 21st 2004, which is the moment at which we re-launched the site.

    Which just made me wonder, perhaps some sort of a vote is a good idea

    A date would be good first.

    I could do Manchester or York most of the time, the others would need further planning and overnight stays.

    If we're going for a Friday (as we usually have - though others may want to propose a change), how about 7th or 14th of November?

    Bristol would suit me obviously, but I'd let others suggest an itinerary there's the obvious ones but not being a bitter drinker some of the ones I'd suggest may not suit.

    Out of the northern locations I've been to a few in Derby about 20 years ago by the railway station. York has been mentioned a few times as a good crack which my dad has agreed with.
