So the idea of the Sub Crawl is that you go around every stop on the Glasgow subway (I think 15 stops in total) and have a drink at the nearest pub you can find to each station.
Yesterday, in honour of Mich's 25th birthday, we decided to partake in this insanity.
Approximately half of the stations are in slightly dodgy areas, so we decided to get them out of the way early on. Things I learned: drinks are much cheaper in that side of town and . . . er, that's pretty much it.
Most terrifying moment was when we entered the Stadium Bar in Ibrox and everyone turned to look at us when Michelle asked what we wanted to drink. "It's like they can SMELL the Catholic on me," I hissed to one of the others.
Technically we broke a few rules. For example, I didn't drink alcohol in the first two pubs. We got off at Shields Road and couldn't actually FIND a pub. We skipped West Street station and instead drank three drinks at a pub in St Enoch's Square. We skipped the tube journey from Hillhead to Kelvinhall and just walked to the next pub instead. And then . . . well, we didn't actually leave that pub, despite having another stop left.
I drank rather a lot of vodka. On a virtually empty stomach.
Then I came home and drank two glasses of wine.
I think the only reason I'm not hungover is because I'm potentially still drunk.
And I have to go back to work tomorrow. Miserable face. :(
How were your weekends? Would you like to try the Sub Crawl?
