    Trying to stop the "Beer Drinkers" thread becoming overrun!!!

    Spoken to Neil and some others... Reckon a college bar-crawl would be feasible weds 16th/thurs 17th June..

    Not sure as how it would work re: non-students?

    What do people reckon?

    Most colleges will let in guests (students or non-students) providing they are with Durham students so if we got enough durham students then it would probably be fine. If some places are awkward there are plenty more to go at and there's always the option of overrunning to such fine places as: Shakey, Swan & 3, New Inn, Colpitts, Varsity, Dun Cow, Victoria, The Angel, Woodman, Hogshead, Chase, Walkabout, Wetherspoons and many more.

    thursday 17th will be much much much better cos its the collingwood summer ball on the wed, so not only will i not be able to go on the wed, i dont even know if our bar is open! and since its the best, it would be a shame to miss out.
    cmon, make it a thursday!!

    i think u'll find it's called rah-sity! scarf and duffel coats at the ready!!

    ever noticed that wetherspoons is called the water house? a wetherspoons named after me- my dreams have come true!!

    also i have a link to a *cough* impartial guide to college bars, including the only possible order to go round them in one night http://www.dur.ac.uk/collingwood.handbook/guidetocollegebars.pdf. enjoy!

    the amateurs guide you mean! we'll get in the college bars, I'm sure sparkling quavers will testify to my golden tongue, so getting in wont be a problem, but may have to miss the posh people at college and hatfield out anyway, although I've been in hatfield as a 'member' of hatfield before!

    well, will be a fun night, thursday sounds good to me, except I have a concert on the friday night!

    ps, me and rick can do a good bar crawl of college bars or not, we've done both enough together!

    Neil, you do know that we're playing Mahler 1 on the friday? I'm playing the the 4th part where I sit there for 50 mins and only have about 5 notes to play but there's a bit more in it for you though. Thursday sounds OK but if Marcus or Nath find out they won't be happy.

    This year I will try my best to turn up to the rehearsal having been home the night before. I may even not be wearing my tux from the previous night and won't try and play the Saint-Saens organ symphony in Durham cathedral without any music.

    How many people are interested in a Durham bar crawl?

    this the same concert that certain foolish local banding personnel are helping out at?

    If so then i'm sure a night out with the raas is on the cards.

    Yes James, the very same concert so as we are only playing for approx. half an hour it would be a shame to not sample some local public houses.
