Ripon + Wednesday Night = Lots of fighting (normally started by very large ladies)
Oh what a soldier friendly town it is.......or B!
You say there is NO other option but if you are only in N Yorks for the night it is definately worth finding another option and heading to Harrogate, it's only a few squid in a taxi and the class of women/pubs/clubs goes up 200 fold.
I suppose, now we're in the brave new world of 24-hour drinking, Harrogate's old advantage of having funny bylaws that permitted late opening is gone. Which is no great pity, because I hate the fcking place.
Did it and a good night was had by all! Started in the One eyed rat and finished, as predicted earlier, in Montys'! The Hog was right about thick as fcuk engineers! - act quite queer as well they do! I've seen better strippers, but I've also seen far fcukin' worse! - so overall, I'll call in a draw against the predictions.
