My average time in a pub is 18.36 minutes. Well (too) shy of BRAPA and his 27.5, but rather more than the professional ticking of the professionals. I once saw Maltmeister nip in and out of a Manx pub in 45 seconds, and he thought that was slacking.
When Mrs RM joins me the average is 27.44 minutes, and only 12.10 of those are her inevitable trip to the loo (AFTER we’re ready to go).
I spent 31 minutes in the Lower Turk’s Head last Wednesday, and it’s all down to Boy George and Ivan Eugene Doroschuk (who ?).
Great pub, as I’ve already told you, but it was the superbly naff soundtrack that pinned me to the bench seats.
So, “What music did Manc pubs play in the war, Daddy ?”
15:10 – Human League – Solid start.
15:14 – Bananarama – OK I guess.
15:18 Men Without Hats – ooh, don’t hear this much. I still have the 12″.
15:25 Kajagoogoo – stonewall classic.
15:30 – Culture Club, but THIS one.
Cancel all plans. And finally,
OK, OK, should be Dr Mabuse, but it’ll do.
The Old Boys at the bar discussing Babycham and Cherry Mild appreciated it as much as the ladies who drink Prosecco. Then “Gold” came on and it was time to go.
Some good music in the next pub, too….
