    Parent wanted to go in disguise to Coventry nightclub Kasbah to spy on their son

    I suspect some citizens of the 2021 UK City of Culture have a broad definition of "culture"

    "Last week, Coventry nightclub Kasbah received a strange email requesting that they put up posters urging revellers not to spit in each other's mouths as it was a health concern." ...it goes on

    Perhaps she went in disguise so as not to clash with her son and rock the Kasbah.

    Not saying it's easy but if you're not open you won't get any trade.

    And I recognise those quotes from Dawn Hopkins - she has the Rose Inn just outside the centre of Norwich; her partner killed himself in the first lockdown and a Guardian reporter got close to her and did a repeat interview in the summer - I think that's where "we’ll have a Wednesday that will be absolutely mad and then a Friday that’s quiet" comes from. The M&B figures may be legit but a lot of the rest is padding and not necessarily up to date.
