Wedding Eve

Me, James, Keith, Steve and Gavin.

Keith and I stayed with his bestman, James, last night. James cooked us a great dinner of traditional bangers and mash and also instructed me on the proper manner to drink Newcastle Brown Ale. A method which I shall most certainly bring home. After dinner, we headed to the local pub to meet up with two more of their friends, Steve & Gavin. The four met in optometry school and have been friends for over 15 years.
The pub was packed. The amazing thing about English pubs is the variation in age demographics. We were drinking alongside people that were everywhere from 18 to 60 years in age. It was the heart of the night, a gathering place for anyone. Well, we are off to the wedding.
