I'm going to Stockholm in Jan and Venice in March, courtesy of the airline with no food, no room and grumpy, minging, air hostesses. Mustn't grumble as the tickets cost less than a return ticket to Birmingham New Street, officially the Shitest Place In England. Has anyone got any tips on where to go and what to do? I don't want to rub shoulders with retarded american tourists and I'm taking the Useless Wingman, and she won't want to go lap dancing. Any gen on cool little bars, decent restaurants with locals instead of feckwits from Surbiton and alternative attractions would be greatly appreciated. Of course, trips away with the lass are really little more than recces, so any info on the cathouses and drunk tanks of these fine cities would also be most welcome.
