SECOND VISIT: FRIDAY 10 OCTOBER 2014

Another pre-gig trip to the Swan. Tonight’s gig of choice was Future of the Left at the garage. Tonight’s beers of choice were a can of Bengali Tiger and a pint of Devil’s Backbone IPA. We sat on the outside terrace and waffled pish and when the beers were gone we pissed of to the Garage.

FIRST VISIT: FRIDAY 15 AUGUST 2014

The White Swan is a big cavernous Spoons located a short stroll from the Emirates Stadium. If you are an Arsenal fan I’m sure it’s a great place to hang out on match days. I like the fact it is deep in Gooner territory and has the word white in the its name. It’s almost as amusing as The Cock being the first pub you encounter when you live Highbury & Islington tube station.

We were here because we were attending the Neko Case gig across the road at the Union Chapel. Theoretically we only had time for one beer but thanks to technical problems at the venue we ending up having enough time for three beers. Every single one of those beers was a can of Bengali Tiger.
