Default Beer, Christchurch, Next weekend?

Any takers?

Otherwise I'm happy to drink on my own!


That'll be Queens B'day weekend.

Me and my OH would be up for a beer. We have just moved to Chch and don't know anyone yet so it would be great to have another person to talk to

When and where will you be?

Bugger!
Going to be busy that weekend due to a mixture of work and having to go north to visit the inlaws as it's someone's B'day [and not the Queens!]

Would much prefer to be going out for a drink round here and meeting some people

Another time maybe?

About time you started working!

Ok So what about the Bard on Avon (might as well go to a flippin english pub!)

from say 3 - 4pm?

If anyone has a better idea feel free. Send me a PM if you are likely to be out and i'll give you my mobile number,

The rules of drinking with me are these:
1) you must at least show a passing interest on how great it is to see newcastle back in the premier league.
2) you must understand that i will be slightly intoxicated at some stage and will therefore think i am the funniest man in the world
3) you should agree that the vw split screen van is one of the finest vehicles even made
4) i will be nipping off at ever more regular intervals to have a cigarette, and yes I already know it is bad for me. I do however ride a motorbike, eat curry and drink too much, so I think it is the least of my worries
5) i dont have children and therefore have no form or reference to witty stories about them saying boll*cks in front of your mother
6) i do have a dog and therefore do know about witty stories about them trying to hump the neighbours cat
7) i like living here and dont think it is either particularly dangerous, or indeed a third world country
8) i can be an opinionated arse, ask my wife! (and you can!)

If I havent put you all off see you at the weekend!

Excellent. Looking forward to it. Will be making the most of my last full weekend off till I'm probably 40.

Mad apples all round - well for me and Steph anyway :-)

Aarrghh feeling even more disappointed now that I have to spend the weekend with the inlaws instead of going out and having fun.
Have a great time everyone

Job for tomorrow:visit the library so I have plenty to read whilst up there, conversation is not expected or forthcoming, boredom is setting in already and I don't arrive for another two days

See you there :-) Hopefully we'll be able to spot you, else we may end up unwittingly talking to the wrong people all afternoon!
