The Saturday Wrap for 05 December 2020. Speedy Apple repair turnaround. Bubs at the end. No science, no vote shutdown. Changing cards. Thunder Snow. From #Bedwas #SaturdayWrap

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.

Beer and Genius

There was rain, lots of rain. A RTA on the way to the Station and a Coffee and a Bacon Roll in Costa. The Central Bar for The Saturday Wrap. Then off to the Apple Store. Cardiff rather packed with Christmas Shopper. Also packed with Rugby Fans. Managed to get into The Old Arcade where I was informed there wasn’t Cask Brains Dark since the first Lockdown.
And next door into Bubs Cardiff. A prebooked three hour slot and some awesome ales. Web App to the fore. I wonder how the non announcement, announcement will affect them.

While I Still Can

It was the last day of my June Beano, you know the one that was deferred until November. Later buses and better weather. Costa now do seat delivery. The Central Bar is now plexiglass central and who knew that the Queen’s Valults opens at 10:00.
It is also just across the corner from BrrwDog Cardiff. Nice app and web app. Lots of issues with my password, however once in it became sour Monday. There is a Monday discount along with my equity for punks discount. Some samples out of the blue and it was a great Monday. Now let’s hope Mr Drakeford doesn’t do a Mr Johnson!

Red Sky and Email Bookings

Signalling problems then led to me a chancing a train I thought I wasn’t going to get. Lots of red sky in the morning and everyone was wearing a mask. First Coffee and Bacon Roll at Costa since I had the car serviced back in August. Lovely aromas. The Gatekeeper didn’t seem to have much of anything in terms of drinks, probably worried about another Fire Break. Also the same issue with the app as in The Queens Hotel. Still nice and relaxing.

Dropped a booking email to Bubs (ex Beelzebubs, ex Small Bar) to book a table for 12:00. I was there on the dot. Very well run, very secure and an awesome range of beers. must return. Pity about the rain.

WiFi on Monday

As the cold lingers on and the weather is rather spring like, it’s time to test out the Brew Monster Tap in Cardiff. Next to the Goat Major, very Tap like. Great Welcome, The Simpsons on the TV, excellent Ales but not cheap. The WiFi arrives on Monday.

Strange GMT Feeling Beano

Yellow rain warning, Yellow wind warning and sodden in the Malcolm Uphill. England lost in the Rugby, I got on the Penarth Flyer in the Sun. Head of Steam and Beelzebubs and the rain was back. Dorothy’s chip and it was rush to The City Arms to avoid getting sodden again. Early return home and there was minor flooding in Wood Street #Cardiff

A Sporting Belgian

Autumn (The Fall) hit’s the beautiful Lower Rhymney Valley with only the first day as an Indian Summer. Cardiff where only Wetherspoons have sensible opening times (says me). Ending up in The Head of Steam where the live Untappd feed is only upstairs now. Belgian low alcohol ales and it is as good as the full fat. Power and USB sockets all over. It didn’t rain.
