As it's my birthday a few days after, I fancied putting on a trip out for a few drinks and some live music to Finish. We will meet at the Cross Keys Pub ( NG1 2GJ ) near the Lace Market but I plan to get the tram to stop at a few lesser frequented but excellent pubs in North Nottingham. The tram I am aiming to get is the 19.32 out bound from the Lace market stop almost directly outside the Cross Keys. The final tram back is 23.46 but feel free to leave earlier. The route will have three venues and a final one in the city for a late night stop if we are still going. Get an unlimited tram ticket for £3.50 from the conductor and see some parts of Nottingham you might not be so familiar with.
The Band at the Lion is THE FOG who play "popular rock", or covers as the say down my way. Although I have a timetable I could by accident or incompetence divert from it. I am unlikely to be too far off though so bear with if you plan to meet part way as I will try my best to get back on track.
Planned rundown below. The full addresses of all venues can be found easily on the Net.
The Fox and Crown, NG6 8 to 9pm
The Horse and Groom, NG7 9.15 to 10.00 ( don't confuse this with the one in Arnold )
The Lion in Basford, NG7 10.10 onward
A Late Bar of group choosing at some time post 23.00.
I will add a number on the comments for you to text on the night earlier the same day.
