Ready The Prelude

11/07/2021 Leave a comment

High Summer, a drizzly Summer and it was off to Cardiff to dust off the old Beano Prelude Video skills. Starbucks in St Mary Street is now open from early and the Central Bar is still the place where the whole world goes for a Full English. Pity it hasn’t got FTTC yet. The PM is held in Bubs. The Finest of Ales, the quality of the welcome and Fast FTTC Wifi. Good times were back. Mostly Tiddly on the way home.

Prelude Practise

Despite being in Wales, where Mr Drakeford has gone rather quiet, I am in practise for the English end of lockdown day.  Of course it is drizzling and you need a fresh cup each time for the all you can drink coffee. Yes, it Spoons, in this case The Central Bar Cardiff. It also looks like we have cask ale and I’m booked into Bubs Cardiff for Midday.

Cardiff Like Newport

Summer and a pleasant train journey into Cardiff. However The Queen Street Costa Coffee doesn’t open until 08:00 on a Saturday.  Things aren’t back to normal at all. Also, the cask selection in The Gatekeeper is minimal. Thankfully Bubs came to the rescue. The Finest of Ales, The Finest of Staff and some kick arse WiFi. No if I could only get them to open at 07:00 and do Bacon Rolls. You can dream, can’t you?

It Ended With The Blues

So the pubs close at 18:00 on Friday (mostly) without a vote and ignoring the science. Safer in the pub than in work.  Prebooked into Bubs with a sour tap takeover from Cascade Brewing (Oregon). So Costa, with points. The Central Bar with a Scottish Cask Ale. Poundland for cheap Christmas lights. The Head of Steam for a live Untappd Sherbet. Then Bubs, where Stevie Ray Vaughan was playing when I arrived.
Superb, safe afternoon with a little Classic Rock as well. Probably the last Emergency Beano of 2020. Rained.
