On Friday night it was our annual quiz team night out. We’re not actually a team anymore since the last pub we did them in closed in 2012 but these lads are among my longest standing friends so I’m glad we kept this tradition going. 4.30pm finally arrived and I bolted out of the office.Continue reading “Friday Night’s Alright For Drinking. And Eating.”
A few weeks ago myself and a mate were going to do a Walsall Wood pub crawl but he cancelled so we said we’d do it in January. Then I saw on the Brownhills Bob Facebook page that The Black Cock Inn was closing for good on the 2nd of January. This bought a newContinue reading “You Should Go To Walsall Wood.”
*Written in 2019*. As a CAMRA member you get 50p off a pint vouchers for Wetherspoons pubs. I don’t use them very often, and they used to come in blocks of £5 worth that you had to use in 3 months. For once I opted to try and use all 10. To make things interestingContinue reading “Spending A Fortune To Save A Fiver.”
I have two main reasons for re-ticking pubs. If it’s had a name change or gone through a major refurb. Some folk re-tick a pub if it has new gaffers but I’m less arsed by that, plus I have enough contacts who let me know if a pub goes downhill after a change of hands.Continue reading “I Love It When A Pub Needs A Revisit.”
I woke up on Saturday to a sprinkling of snow. Not quite the 3 foot deep efforts that we used to get in the 1970’s but still enough to raise a tut or two. Now don’t get me wrong, white is my favourite colour but not when it’s all over the pavement and reducing myContinue reading “An Illuminating Snowy Day In Walsall.”
Morning everyone. It’s been a while. Apologies for the lack of blogs of late, but here is one about a little wander around Brownhills. On Thursday evening I was at a loose end, a bit thirsty and in dire need of some blog inspiration so at the third time of asking I jumped on theContinue reading “Thirsty Thursday In Brownhills.”
On Friday night it was the birthday drinks for friend of the blog Kate, in Wolverhampton. After an extremely busy day where I think I answered more phone calls than an minor celebrity on a television fundraiser, I think I’d earned a drink. Food was first on the agenda however, and it was a visitContinue reading “Friday. Fried Chicken Day. And Pubs Night.”
It had been a busy, stressful week with no time to myself but come Friday evening I had no plans, and although this blog was on hiatus until after the pantomime I thought I’d pop out on a little solo pub crawl and see if I could gather any material. I love a pub crawlContinue reading “Living For The Weekend.”
Yesterday was a fuzzy start to the day. All my own fault having had far more drinks than I planned too on Friday night. It was with some reluctance that I got out of bed but it had to be done. While loads of my mates were off to Newport to watch the Walsall FCContinue reading “It’s Damn Worth Going To Tamworth.”
On Friday evening I took my lifelong best friend Swill out for food for his recent birthday and we headed to Piri Fino, Walsall’s best chicken establishment. We were told upon arrival the grave news that they had no mash. Shocking stuff but not that troublesome as Tesco is round the corner and I canContinue reading “A Piri Good Weekend.”
