The List - DRINK

And so we come to my final list - drinking. One of my favourite pasttimes and yet something I still don't think I do enough of. The problem is, unlike with things to do, and even clubbing, it's quite hard to find freebie drinking establishments. And, unlike with eating, I can go without drinking if I have no money. So it's taking me a bit longer to cross things off this list. But - as I have hinted earlier - I think the imminent arrival of my friend will help me boost my success rate.

  1. Coal Hole is good! And I have been meaning to go to Vinoteca for ages ... that's on my list too!


Please feel free to add your views, or maybe suggest somewhere I should put on my list!
