It has been brought to my attention that the exploits of this years Trig Brother have not been publicised yet. Over the next few weeks, on and off, I will do my best to rectify this. For those of you that do not know Trig Brother is an annual pub crawl jointly hosted by Pumpkin Publog and Freaky Trigger (see the links) loosely based around Big Brother and pubs. Twelve players, five pubs, much acrimonious voting in venues to boot people out. To aid in this is the key questions asked between pints. These questions are a barometer of the important burning issues of the day – and also a good smokescreen to hang the eventual voting out of the competitors on. Here I’ll just run you down the pubs we visited, we chose Shaftesbury Avenue to be our axis.

1.The Spice Of Life (opposite the newly opened and very good Fopp – very friendly)
2. Coach & Horses (rather unfirendly street drinking – Jeffry Bernard was a git)
3. The Golden Lion (possibly the best jukebox in Central London, they had sport on)
4. The Dive Bar (last minute replacement for the shut De Hems – its subterrainean atmosphere made people act strangely)
5. The Blue Posts – Rupert Street (for old times sake. It wasn’t too bad)
6. Glasshouse Stores (also the base pub. The default pub of the year so far on sheer number of visits).
