Common sense is not a gift, it's a punishment. Because you have to deal with everyone that doesn't have it !!!

Thats unfortunate for a day/eve based primarily on liquid consumption

I don't mind too much Gary I spent years working in environments where lots of people were out of it, including some I was working with, and having to stay sober. Plus it leaves you more alert for photo opportunities lol.

I didn't realise you were a small black and white marsupial that in reality looks very disappointing if all you ever know of them is the cartoon lol.

In that case I bags the flat cap, I want nothing to do with black pudding so Martin can provide personal security with that and his knowledge of Ecky Thump.

The solution to this is easy! Lunchtime beers followed by coffee, followed by more beer?!

Sounds good Gary.

 

The Post Office Vaults has a ridiculous range of foreign bottled beers (that's the way to go there as I've never managed to get a decent cask ale). A bit cosy but you can normally get a table.

 

The Victoria normally has a couple of ales on and lots of cocktails for those partial to that way of things. One of my favourite bars in the city and great food if you're ever about at a lunchtime (the pulled-pork sandwich is heavenly).

 

Without giving people a total 'culture shock' down Digbeth I think what you've suggested is the best in that part of town :D

 

Ones to consider before walking down from the Snow Hill cafe area are The Old Contemptibles and if it's decent enough to be outside, the beer terrace upstairs at The Wellington

Jeebus help me, I can't lunch time drink anymore , not since England v Argentina World Cup 2002. That ended very badly , to be fair , I think it qualified as pre lunchtime drinking . I think I started at 10.30 with an order of 3 pints of Guinness .


I write a blog, it's nothing to do with coffee ...

Bacchus is ok if we're in that area, a little overpriced these days but if we need a change of scenery then it might work.
