Red_Bus ! nice to see you back!
can't tell if you were being a bit sarcastic there, trying to get fewer people to go to that terrible pub The Royal Oak... ;-)
Surely the best place to go is the Vinopolis bar.

Why thank you. yes, was being a wee bit *sarky*. I love the Royal Oak too much to see it jampacked. And it is pretty busy already. I sent Jackie a PM to let her know after her post.

Of course Belushi's is a complete hole and I wouldn't go there unless I had a can of petrol and a big box of matches :o)

You keeping well?

Ah, Red Bus, that's who my PM is from. Alas, I cant get IN to PMs. Have written to James on Feedback about this...anyone else having the problem?

I got accosted (in a very friendly way) by one of the barmaids from the Oak on the way back home last night.

It caught me by surpsise though, as she hailed me from a fair distance, in the dark, and I was fairly "relaxed" after meeting some of you in te Britannia.

Mrs I thought there was something fishy going on, until I explained otherwise.

...if you press it, they will come.

I think the staff there are lovely.
One of them ran after me to give me my cardi when I left it behind, and we got free drinks at New Year.

Belushis is now posting suited bouncers outside the door, with a red rope barrier sectioning off the pavement outside (to hold the paparazzi back?)

Yes, I have heard Belushis is the new Ivy and the paps are on to it. Apparently, SE1's happening crowd love it.

I am told you could bump into madge and guy, or sit comfortably, debating with the regulars, or maybe just enjoy their wonderful steamed lobster for a fiver.

Much, much better than a washed-up old boozer like the Royal oak.

Red_bus i'm fine thanks. Fairly sure i saw you on your bike on Saturday evening - heading up towards the river, past the Globe theatre - i shouted and waved, but couldn't remember your real name - and shouting "red bus!" in London might have made me look a bit mad - probably about half four ish.
