Five friends once set out to drink a pint at every one of Newton Haven’s twelve famous pubs in a single night – and failed. Years later, they’re older, but are they wiser? Apparently not, because they’re getting together to try drinking their way around the circuit again. Whether they succeed or fail, it’s a silly quest that probably wouldn't be memorable if it weren't for an otherworldly presence waiting for them along the Glorious Golden Mile, one with its own plan that may just alter the evening’s agenda.
