Marquis of Drunk!
What’s the best thing about blogging for an international website? Ready made friends in cities across the world!
Fellow SF Metblogger Rob and I met up with some of the London gang at the Marquis of Granby pub on Saturday evening. Loads on energy in that pub, let me tell you. There was a group of guys in the corner who, by the sound of it, were enjoying the most high stakes, high action football game in English history. Yet, the TVs were off – so they must’ve just been enjoying their own action. Their energetic enjoyment forced our table to exchange shouted pleasantries and life stories.
Fortunately, since it was a pub, there was plenty of drink to easy our raspy, yelled-out throats. I ended up overdoing the beer a bit – but at least there were some tasty treats to go along with it. Like Yorkshire pudding bits with a side of gravy (I don’t need the gravy, but I LOVE Yorkshire pudding). Definitely can’t find that at pubs in the States!
It was great joining up with the London writers who could make it out. I’m planning on coming back a few times before I head back to SF – so hopefully, I’ll catch more of what London has to offer with a fine group of writers! And, of course, any and all advice from readers and writers on what to see that might not be in my guidebook is welcome!
