Do you go to the pub ? How often ? What do you do there ? Do sit at the bar, or table or play pool ? Play the pokies at all ? I have not been for a while but last time I did had a little flutter on the pokies..Didnt win of course, then sat out in the garden and listened to the band playing, it was very relaxing.

I go to the pub maybe once or twice a week. I normally just talk to random people, drink loads of Magner's cider, or some kind of spirit. I sit at a table. I'm normally with friends. I some times play pool, but most of the time I don't. Pubs are fun, but I prefer going to clubs and bars, they are usually more lively. :)

I can happily talk to older people, that doesn't bothered me, I do it all the time when I'm out. :) But at the end of the day I prefer somewhere where I can dance and act crazy. lol

I used to go the Pub once every week in my twenties & early thrities. I would go on a Friday after work, with my work friends. This is a very poluar custoom in Australia, and many overdo it. In my mid thirties I stopped, as I was pregnant. I never really got back into going to the Pub. Now I have three children. On rarte occassions my husbamnd & I will go to the Pub together. I almost never play the pokies.

i do not go to pubs, sorry. I don't drink, except at home and really only a drink now and then. Like once a month or so, and its only a drink or two.

nah, I have not been to the public house in many many years - probably not since my marriage. It just is not an atmosphere conducive to my life anymore.

Yes I am a pub lover, but these days I don't go there as much. I love to catch up with friends there on Friday nights and drink a few cocktails and laugh about the nonsense happened at work! I think I will go to my favourite pub again with my buddies before I go on my long travel! It's very fun and I love the drinks *smiles*.

I seldom go to the pub because I am not interested in staying there. I don't like drinking and therefore the pub is less attractive for me. In the past I just went there a few times but I didn't find it interesting.

Calais my darling what are you trying to do to me! I would love to get to the pub and spend time with all my friends there but I haven't been , not even for a coffee with my bosses since before my surgery! Well unless I am working , in which case I would be behind the bar, I love to sit on the high stools at the bar and chat and before my back problems I loved to play pool as well! Och well hopefully I will be able to visit soon and maybe even get off the painkillers and have a drink - oh wouldn't that be wonderful! xxx

Its been a while since i've been there.. I really don't have much time nowadays.. But i did enjoy everything there and if i remember it right i met a girl there and we had some conversations and we became real close.. My point its not only the fun that pub offers, but you can also socialize with other people in pubs.
