    Taking 300 last year as a starting point, I may try for 366 new pubs this year which equates for one for each day. Massive start in Mayfair last night with a grand total of 1. Just 365 to go. Will be in Crouch End tomorrow which is hitherto unknown territory followed by a North London Line pub crawl on Saturday organised by Ratebeer which will actually only net me 3 newbies. Next week I have 4 days in Newquay and Padstow so should hit a dozen or so at least, then Maidenhead probably 3 or 4 new ones and building up for Liverpool where things will really take off!

    1 bar added to the site.
    21 Pubs that have not been reviewd before.
    7 pubs that already have reviews.

    I'll go to a town and do all of the pubs if I can. If it sells beer I must visit and I think my crawl of Brighton's gay quarter one evening/night before Christmas will testify to this.

    We are in Weston Super Mare with a car club at the end of this month, so I have looked at the pubs and bars along the front where our hotel is and found 6 with no reviews, so will do them on the Friday before all the hotel stuff starts.

    We are in Bristol on the Saturday but expect to be doing favourite pubs as we only have 4 or 5 hours before getting back for the "Angels and Demons" fancy dress night. Will need some beer to start us off as there is no real ale in the hotel. Usually manage to sneak out for a quick one or two during the evening though (NOT in fancy dress by the way!!. We leave that to others to provide the entertainment!).

    [QUOTE=ETA;40576]Now we get into definitons - of the 12 pubs I've visited so far this year, 10 are new in that I haven't previously reviewed them, while only 9 are new in that I haven't been in them before.

    AQUOTE]

    Six of those 10 were first PuG reviews.

    Is there some way of displaying a running percentage of pubs on his site without reviews? We could see how we are working as a group. Or is that just too trivial even to contemplate?

    You have the same mind set as me,
    I will go in any pub that i see i dont care if it is a gay pub or a rough hole i must go in and have a drink then once i have done it i am happy untill i see another pub that i hav'nt been in before.
    I am now finding it harder to to get to new pubs to me as i think there is only a handfull of pubs within a 10 mile radius of where i live that i hav'nt been in before.

    10 pubs visited so far but no new ones, all having been reviewed but some may need updating.

    I have about 24 pubs left unreviewed in the Borough I live in but they're mainly spread out and hard to get to or are pub themed restaurants, or pubco owned mug-bleeders that continually open and close.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
    A sure test, an easy test:
    Those that drink beer are the best

    I take it you'll be trying the Bag o'Nails then Gill? I would suggest meeting up, but unfortunately I'm not around that Saturday. Unless you have any free time in WSM on the Sunday?

    Bag O' Nails is certainly on the list for Saturday.

    Will have to be catching the train from Weston around 11.30 to get to Bristol for the connection. Not sure what time we will be free from the hotel, but there wouldn't be a lot of time really, unless Off the Rails is open Sunday morning.

    Hopefully this will change tomorrow when I'm aiming to visit 4 or 5 pubs that I haven't been in for at least 10 years plus 2 more that are "virgins" to me.

    Of these 3 don't have any kind of review yet.
    Well the 4 or 5 plus 2 virgins turned into 13 last night.

    So thats a decent start on my mission for the year.
    A pub is for life not just for Christmas
