Tuesday 26th July 2022

Hey. How ya doing.

For me, Tuesday is a good day. I’ve got the Candy Bar at 7 – a pub I still don’t fully understand after being there for a few months now. All the people are great but I sometimes have a blind spot for how young they are and how little they know.

I also don’t get the allure of cocktails which are all the rage at Candy. They look fancy. The ice-grinding machine comes on every few minutes. I always hear it – it’s loud. 

There was a guy in the Brass on Drummond Street last night telling a story about how he’s been out with his family the day before and had berated his brother for ordering some espresso-vajazzle-martini-margarita or something.

“I said – Do you know how long it takes to make one of those things? Just get a pint”

And that was him told.

But the Candy Bar isn’t perturbed when you order a cocktail. It’s what they do. Everyone seems comfortable.

NB – You CAN just get a pint there if you just want a pint.

Anyway: here are tonight’s jackpots and free answers:

Wow. 1991. Shanice is still alive and, according to Wikipedia, is married to a “comedian and dancer” named Flex. This is in the music round at Old Eastway Tap tonight.
