    Staying over in a gruesome Travelodge (not even doing breakfasts, but unsurprisingly cheap) after working in Brum today, so will probably head to the Briar Rose for a fry-up at about 10:45.

    NB - As a public duty, I'm currently visiting a few 'Winfields' - think John Smith's, Worthington's if you're lucky or keg Banks's Original (mild) as a best case - in the outer suburbs near where a Soup Dragon is known to roam.

    Well done for stepping up to the plate. I was thinking of doing something similar, and even looked at some hotels, but the thought of all that John Smiths Smooth Crap was too much.

From my copy of Camra's Real Heritage Pubs of the Midlands: Rose Villa Tavern. It's a similar distance from the Jewellery Quarter station & tram stop as the Jewellers Arms, so if there happen to still be 20-odd of us getting off the tram at the same time, a split might be advantageous when it comes to getting served promptly. Not to mention, it seems to be a lovely pub.

    Happy to take one for the team, but I should add that I unexpectedly found the 5.0% Hornswoggle from Froth Blowers on handpump at the The Kingfisher near Great Barr.

    Rose Villa Tavern is a lovely pub, and one to wander round the rooms and there was a phone box inside when we were last in there. Today going to be fun. I won't be capable of having a drink in every pub, but I am game to get round as many as I can with you all. Ray will do what he can, but may just do a few at the start, but I am so looking forward to having a go.

    Something else to think about, Birmingham City playing West Brom tonight at Albion 8pm, so there will be footy fans having a drink before going to the match, and likely a few of the pubs screening the match. Will only affect those not on earlier trains home I suppose, but there will be fans around.

    Alcohol doesn't solve problems .... but then again, neither does milk.

    Well, that's a blow. I'd been looking forward to meeting you again. Maybe next time.
