EIGHT MILLION STORIES, EIGHT PUBS TO TICK, LET’S LICK WICK

So many songs with eight (8) in the title, and I choose A Tribe Called Quest.

Yes, it’s started.

Yesterday saw a nine hour journey from the Chung Hwa to a four poster bed in Kingussie accessed by a secret code, a journey beset with disasters such as a detour through Grantham, flooded motorway in Coatbridge, and Mrs RM playing M People.

Baa Baa Toure expects four poster beds all the time now.

Slightly less grand, Wick brings you down to earth after a glorious run through Sutherland this morning.

But at least it’s got the world’s shortest street (it’s a con).

It won’t have a Spoons much longer, it closes on Sunday leaving Wick bereft of bargain Tennents and bacon baps.

The staff offered no clue as to the future, but they leave a cheery Spoons offering a very decent Portobello (3) in the absence of Doom Bar,

and a characteristically on message note about our Queen.

You can rely on Tim Martin to reflect the mood of the nation.

What have BrewDog said ?

Anyhow, the last eight (8).

  1. Martin I feel a little cursed that I’m on the road just as you reach the triumphant conquering moment, and doing a poor job following along as the final pubs fall.

    Hats off to you slaying the mighty GBG— it really is a monumental achievement, and I don’t want to miss a moment of it!
