So here we are again, in Crow's Nest in the middle of the night, post curry run and up for more beer. Myself, Ric, Brian and Garry head for the Crow's Nest
I'm not expecting much, in fact, it's just after midnight and the chairs are up in the back bar already, almost prompting a sudden rethink and a return to the Stoned Crow
, however Ric knows better.
The front bar is dominated by big screens playing the video jukebox tonight, and we're initially treated to some classic 70s rock while getting in the beers - Guinness on tap is always a good sign. Grabbing seats near the pool table, we take in the general atmosphere and find it pretty much as you'd expect after midnight on a Thursday - a smattering of early twenties lads ranging through the cross-section right up to hardened locals on a mission. The pub is sizeable enough to accomodate the lot, and there seems to be a fair amount of circulation happening, with new drinkers arriving as quick as others leave.
It seems to be quite easy to be accosted into a conversation here at the Crows Nest, as the lads are finding out, and by 3am and kicking out time our little group seems to have expanded considerably. I'm left not quite knowing what to think, really!
