East End Shuffle

Due to work, I don’t get as much time as I’d like to meet up with my old school chums – but we got together yesterday to eat, drink and.. play shuffleboard.

We started off at Liverpool Street station, made our way to a local pub, had a couple of pints, then headed off to The Shuffle Club, Shoreditch.

I scored more than my fair share of -10 points

More pintage was had at the Shuffle Club, in which I was resoundly beaten over and over again by scoring 0 points or -10 points. It’s also fair to say that us 40-somethings were perhaps the oldest people there. Oh, the irony.

We then headed off to Brick Lane for a ruby murray (curry). Brick Lane is an interesting place to visit, and you’ll also find many people attempting to entice you into their curry house. We ended up at the Aladdin after being promised a free pint each. Which was promptly delivered.

After the curry, we found another pub. Unfortunately I’m discovering that I’m not as young as I used to be and 6 pints is probably the limit I can take. There was discussion of going to see Avengers: Endgame at Leicester Square, but there wasn’t going to be any chance of me doing so giving the state I was in.

Got back home around 11pm. That’s when things got interesting…
