... was rather generous as we were basically given full pints each, not to complain of course!
We then went to another bar where they had a gig on, the band were a bit on the grungy side, not bad but it really wasn't a place for socialising. Although they did have really cool beanbags and ponchos outside for everyone. We had to call the girls to come pick us up but they'd already fallen sleep so it took a call or two to wake them up again, ...
... know what that means but I wish I could stay longer, take a couple of surfing lessons and find out. Next time.
