The Idle Hour

One hundred Tuesdays of various pubs and this is where we've ended up.  A small terraced hideaway which could easily be mistaken as someone's house.  Once in through the door, you're met with dozens of clocks hung on the walls, hard floors and wooden tables.  And a black Jaegermeister shot maker on the bar, odd.
There are some strict rules about this place - you're not allowed to be in the garden after 10:30pm and if you are out there, there's a minimum number of people allowed per table.  Since we were the only ones in the garden (or in the pub by the end), I don't think this mattered too much.
The barmaid was quite taken aback there were actually people having a proper drink, finding it hard to find the right poison she exclaimed "This is the first time anyone's come in on a Tuesday for a session".
There was a bottle of Brazilian rum sitting amongst the other bottles behind the bar, the label warning of '80% alcohol content' (that's 160 proof!).  Allegedly illegal to sell in the shops, one shot of Stroh was evaporating even before it was brought back to the table.  Any liquid that makes you hold your chest like you're having a coronary isn't to be trusted.
