Pub Alert! Do you fancy a drink? Just the one

We have come up with 2 excuses to go to the pub, a gentle few pints on a Monday and a festive pub crawl on the Friday.

05/12/16 . Boys v Girls. The warmup.

Girls. 19:00, Vivo’s. Stapleford. http://www.nottingham.vivorestaurant.co.uk/

Pre-booking required (talk to Rachel).

Boys & Dogs. 19:30, Horse & Jockey. Stapleford. http://www.horseandjockeystapleford.co.uk/

No pre booking required because we’re men (or a 4 legged furry creature that does not talk so therefore is disadvantaged in the required skills to book anything).

09/12/16 . Christmas Cask Ale & Cocktail Crawl.

Club Christmas night out!  6 pubs and 1mile (https://www.plotaroute.com/route/293172 its aerobic base training for the beer mile in jan). We’re heading to the metropolis of Derby city centre and starting at the Exeter Arms (DE1 2EU) at 18:30. It’s on the bus route into Derby a few minutes from the bus station. The full timetable is below. Everybody is welcome, so feel free to bring spouses etc.

“Never trust a man who doesn’t drink because he’s probably a self-righteous sort, a man who thinks he knows right from wrong all the time. Some of them are good men, but in the name of goodness, they cause most of the suffering in the world. They’re the judges, the meddlers. And never trust a man who drinks but refuses to get drunk. They’re usually afraid of something deep down inside, either that they’re a coward or a fool or mean and violent. You can’t trust a man who’s afraid of himself. But sometimes, you can trust a man who occasionally kneels before a toilet. The chances are that he is learning something about humility and his natural human foolishness, about how to survive himself. It’s damned hard for a man to take himself too seriously when he’s heaving his guts into a dirty toilet bowl.”
