Reassuringly Expensive

I went to GJs last night for a debrief after driving back from Cardiff only to find that I was required to pony up £3.20 for a pint of Stella. Just a 10p rise I'll grant you, but it stuck in my throat after downing the same stuff at £2.55 a pint in Wales after football on Friday.

I've therefore transferred my affections to Venus where Stella may be had for £3.00. I realise the savings are paltry, but "you've got to be true to your code." (I am even seriously considering the £2.90 a throw offering in the bar at Frankie and Benny's.)

The other local dives rule themselves out as regular haunts by serving different brands of strong continental lager, whereas I request and require Stella:

The very best there is. When you absolutely, positively got to kill every motherfxxxer in the room, accept no substitutes.

I wonder how long it will be before I look back on the prices in this post as bargains from a Golden Age of cheap drinking. In fact that is why I recorded them for posterity.

They tried to make me go to rehab
I said no, no, no

Yes I've been black but when I come back
You'll know, know, know

I ain’t got the time
And if my daddy thinks I’m fine

Just try to make me go to rehab
I won’t go, go, go!
