That Friday Feeling

And that means a lot of time spent here, The Free Press, over the next couple of days. Unlike last night's pub this one is definitely on the tourist trail but it never gets rammed and they share the unfettered ambience with locals chatting, reading and doing the crosswords. Non-smoking and no-mobile-phones policies along with a singular lack of all music or fruit machines make this a real peaceful haven where people can actually talk. They have a great and varied wine selection and a genuine snug in which students regularly try to beat the record for occupants. Dicks.
