The Local Watering Hole , ever wondered why so many people go to these places ? Before you say booze , let me say this it is not the only reason people go there .
At ours we have some really lovely staff , there is cute Stevie , bit too skinny tho lol , then there is the boss man a little more err staid shall we say , his name is Jarrod and also very nice , there is also some just lovely women that work there , 1 of them is Stevies mum , lol, poor thing , cos hes cheeky but we love him.
Then there are the meals, always top notch and very well priced , you could not buy the food ,cook it and serve it for how much you pay for the meals ., also you do not have to do the dishes lol a big bonus. Lunch time during the week is always fun as the workers in the offices over the road all come over for lunch.
While they are there they can relax have a drink and a meal , also watch sports , or put a bet on , or play pool, or keno , so many different reasons to go there , other than just the booze. Some of the regulars that go there are really nice people who just go for the company , and the booze is a bonus if you like , they have a few then go home . There is 1 regular don’t know his name but will refer to him as Rosco , lol, really nice quiet man . Then there is Fred , a real character if ever there was 1 , bit hard to describe him , best just to say if you met him you would understand ,then of course there is Wayne , another nice bloke very good to sit and chat to and have a drink with, but to be honest he needs a girlfriend , lol, any takers ?? ( lmao sorry Wayne )
Trivia , trivia nights are so much fun , we cannot get there as often as we like owing to hubbys shift patterns , but when we can we also have dinner first then play , we win it often which then pays for next days dinner lol . The bloke who runs it Richard , is a right character , he has us laughing so hard at times , he is a stirrer of the highest order , which is why it works so well I think. The questions are quite hard too so if you think they are easy , just dont they are very hard at times , but when we win I just tell hubby its a good thing we are smartarses lol or we would not win so often.
Right from the 1st time we started going there people have been friendly , even ones we have never met , they have no trouble talking to you over a drink . Yet when we were still in the UK we had just 2 pubs we went to on a regular basis , and in the almost 6 years we lived there and went to them , not 1 person ever spoke to us or was friendly , not 1 in either pub in 6 years , still cannot believe that . We have met some real characters too as mentioned just above , some I have looked at and just shook my head and thought huh ? as there is just no explaining them , lol, saw 2 like that the other day amazed at how people dress or behave in public . The main thing is tho that when ever I go there someone always talks to me and for just a little while I have someone ( other than myself ) to talk to and it breaks the monotony . Also the perving is great lol …..
So before you just condemn out of hand people who go to the pub or a club out of hand as being drunkards , think about all the other valid reasons people have to go there . Our pub has a huge screen TV for all kind of sports , love it , have watched a few games there myself . Cant say I have ever seen any real problems with people having too much to drink , it does happen yes , but usually ,thankfully, not when we are there , it is a very well run and organized place. So before you judge people , or places , check it out first , then make the right decision.
