    Yes, a good read Will , pub crawling is not what it was but still worth putting up with a certain amount of inevitable nonsense, things can be difficult sometimes where ever you are as BRAPA found out when I ferried him around my neck of the woods a few weeks ago in the old, pre tier new normal here though things did look up here.
    Oh and OB I hope James didn't leave any unfinished pints from his expensive round.

    This crawl goes to prove that you can't have your cake and eat it.

    I think the best way to get round the 'same household' rule is for people to say they have undergone a civil marriage. If they ask why people are in a group of 12, just tell the staff that you are Mormons!

I tend to drink halves when crawling, but I have reverted to pints since the pubs reopened, because the hassle of entering a pub makes it seem silly to just have a half. The downside of this is (in my case at least) getting pissed a bit quicker than I used to. Add to this the chance of getting pissed off with the rules and how they are applied, and an argument is there waiting to happen. So I'll be happy to get back to my local pubs, where I know them and they know me. I may have another breakout before too long, though. Maybe Derby...
    Thank you for my virtual pub crawl of York. I enjoyed it and needed it as I am now locked down in "Wails!"

    Although his preferred beers are pale n hoppy he is fond of dark beers so no trouble with the Rudgate Mild, it was the OBB he left most of, he’s also a fan of the Blue Bell in York. Good lad really.
    Drink drink, whoever you may be,
    we are the drunk and disorderly,
    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,
    and we’ll meet you all in a pub said he.

    Thanks to all who have commented on the pub crawl for your kind words. (Even Tris with his marriage proposal!)

    Must be something to do with his teacher, , don't blame him about the OBB.

    Thanks, yes, I too enjoyed the vicarious journeys around York and Hampshire, and interesting to read the extra challenges the current climate is imposing, and the interpretation by the enforcers at different venues.
