Boxing Day/Night

1

Plans?

Belfast might as well be Berlin on boxing night so many nights on Dave Clarke, Rolando, Krystal Klear, Paul Johnson to name a few.

Out of retirement and heading to Rolando, Krystal Clear and Chris Hanna haven't been to the Parlour since 2004 what's it like nowadays? We all got ibis for £50 a room so cant beat that and tenner for the ticket.

Good craic for the Beat BBQ nights, decent drink offers and the smoking area is pretty good.

Take it upstairs I remember some sort of nightclub up there back then. Is it a real student hang? I'm still fresh faced enough to blend in.

Dunno how much the students actually bother with it now tbh. Students aren't the same drinkers as they were. It's all gym and creatine and instagram nowadays.

Students all get the bus back to Tyrone by 2pm on a Friday afternoon.

Know a few student types who are mad for teh rave. It's quite polarised it seems, either super clean living or total reprobates.

I think the parlour mostly being total shite has more to do with it

Apparently mid week clubs are full of students wiped out, bakes everywhere

They do gender studies the complete Faggots. None of them are into rave at all.

Good. They don't deserve it.

Uh-oh. There's that old inferiority complex rearing it's ugly head again....

Or more, an undeserved superiority complex. Trust me rainman, I know what I'm talking about.

In fairness, should expand that out a little more. It's not just students, it's 18-25 in general. They don't have the same relationship with pubs as you or I would've growing up.
Pubs are an anachronism to young people. Used to be you would've used the pub for catching up, having a bit of craic etc. There's Whatsapp groups for that. Nowadays students use licensed premises for clubbing and pulling. End of.
Sad times like but I could foresee a lot more pressure being put on the pub industry here. Simply doesn't have the young people coming through to sustain itself.

Like I said, another generation of fags.

Finishing work, college, uni whatever on a Friday and meeting everyone in the bar to start the weekend was the best feeling ever.
