Before, we moved to Islington (over ten years ago now), my husband’s favourite pub was the Old Parr’s Head. They had fantastic beer, a late licence, a DJ and the decor was awesome. He was so happy that we’d moved so close to it. Then, after about a month, it closed down and became a Jigsaw – a shop that he considers almost entirely pointless.
From time to time, he would suggest holding a sit in and demanding that the women’s clothes shop turn back into his favourite pub. Clearly, he didn’t actually do this and, to be fair, there are quite a few nice pubs in Islington.
Yesterday, he went out for lunch with a friend and didn’t come back until 6:30pm. I don’t know exactly what they were doing – boozing in Mayfair and Soho, apparently. I hope they found a nice pub to do it in.
