A night out in Middlesbrough. You Southerners (south of Stoke) don’t know what you’re missing.
overlooked Art Deco masterpieces,
and inflatable sheep.
No new Guide pubs in ‘Boro for a while, the micro boom of 2014-16 has subsided.
BUT your CAMRA membership not only allows you to enter pointless arguments about broccoli on Discourse.
Oh no, you’ll shortly be getting Spoons-like discount in Stonegate pubs, too.
Like the Discovery, named after the discovery of the Parmo in 1978.
Central ‘Boro is a bit quiet, I presume folk head to Stockton for Bass or sit in their rooms in their underpants looking for errors on my blog on a Friday night.
Enough (drunken) life here for me in this ex-Yates, as well as cheap beer, of course.
Here you get good cask for £2.10 pre voucher (Double Maxim, 3.5), the worst karaoke version of “When Will I See You Again” since U2 at Slane Castle,
and of course the crucial Faroes v Spain U-21 tie on 17 screens.
Oh, and something for the speedway fan.
The karaoke improved with the theme from the Lion King, but even my hardened sensibilities weren’t prepared for a 29 year old mum from Billingham doing “I Touch Myself” with the actions.
Time for a Spoons.
