Whitechapel has featured in a surprisingly high number of my posts to the Publog over the years. And here I am again to offer evidence as a rapid rebuttal to Pete’s mental idea that tellies in pubs should be for sport only. Get yourself down to the mock-tudor glories of the Black Bull on a Sunday night and get enjoying the super-cheesy VH1 hits of the 80s they like to show down there. A bit of singing along; a bit of laughing at the videos; a few half-forgotten tunes called back for (often surprisingly favourable) drunken reappraisal.

This is every bit as good a pub life enhancer than the sport is, and maybe even better.
