    I'm happy to make coffee for everyone, but as I don't drink the stuff myself you take your taste buds in your hands.

    Now if it's tea you are wanting, then I am your man. Unfortunately we only have decaff in the house for medical reasons, but if you drink enough it will keep you awake ... just from all the visits to the loo you will have to make.

    Pre, pre-drinks? Or, a drink at home followed by pre-drinks at the cheap bar before going to a more expensive bar where you won't drink as much, given you've already had the pre, pre-drinks and pre-drinks

    Well I'm 'supposed' to be off the fermented grape juice at the moment, but to celebrate the grand opening of this establishment have not only bought, but have cracked open a bottle of Shiraz.
