...you need to send an indirect message to Slovakian Sandwich Girl saying how much you liked her, before she decides that Slovakian Sandwich Boy is available unlike English Capitalist Socialist.

favourite lazy summer afternoon pub by wiredog (2.00 / 0) #2 Thu Apr 10, 2008 at 08:24:04 AM EST
I don't do pubs. I do beaches. Ocean City MD. Every weekend, mid-may through mid-sept.

5 weeks to beach season...

The whole by marvin (2.00 / 0) #5 Thu Apr 10, 2008 at 10:15:38 AM EST
is greater than the sum of the parts. Beach + pub = nirvana.

In civilized countries, we place our pubs on the waterfront, near the beaches. We get to enjoy the combination of cold beer, pub food, beautiful lakefront scenery, sunshine and fresh air on the patio, and a constant procession of scantily clad beauties wandering past on the boardwalk.

When I used to work in that part of town, our manager would frequent the "El". I believe that he had aspirations towards being a professional cougar hunter, and the El remains a well-known cougar lair in the area. We left the office at 2pm a few times in the summer for a pitcher or beer, which is a much nicer way to spend a Friday afternoon than daydreaming about being outside. I think we put the pub time towards meetings or something like that on our timesheet.

Favourite lazy summer pubs... by Metatone (2.00 / 0) #3 Thu Apr 10, 2008 at 08:33:01 AM EST
a couple near Headingley, but only if it's sunny and you have tickets to the cricket.

Which precisely you choose depends on your mood...

English Ale out under the shade of a tree?
Belgian beers in a lively environment?
Or cheap lager surrounded by scantily clad student girls from the uni...

the last couple of summers I've actually spent more time in the Cafe Belgique in Amsterdam than anywhere. It's small but perfectly formed.

in the summertime by Merekat (2.00 / 0) #6 Thu Apr 10, 2008 at 10:43:17 PM EST
Up to the end of June, the Pav in Trinity College Dublin. During the winter months it was (in my day) strictly the preserve of rugby types and their permatanned girlfriends but in summer everyone sits out on the cricket pitch after exams drinking Bitburger.

UKia, I quite like sitting out on the green opposite The Mill in Cambridge but watch out for the Old Rosies, as it lulls you into a false sense of not drunkenness and then suddenly yer legs don't work.

Z├╝rich, I dither between two waterside hippy bars, one a now legitimate enterprise but former squat in a factory down by the lake and the other attached to a drama school by a river (the food is better at this one).

You fancy her. Seriously. She can only say no - and not even to your face!

It's political correctness gone mad!

I couldn't take the humiliation implicit in doing such a thing. And that would mean I'd end up having to walk at least 10 metres further at lunchtime!
