Nanc & Reubie’s Trip to the UK A celebration of 20 & 50 years London Day One - Thursday London, Heathrow 19 May 2011
Shortly before our arrival into London we were roused for breakfast. Pretty yummy too! The flight over the Pond was uneventful… like every flight should be. That said, if you’re gonna fly to the UK, we strongly recommend 1st Class. THX again Cin-Chow!Nanc & Reubie’s Trip to the UK A celebration of 20 & 50 years

Let’s find a pub!! Figuring we’d find a pub near the hotel, we just started waking. Half a mile down the road we found The Jolly Waggoners pub on the Waggoners Roundabout. Uh…not so much.We walked back toward the hotel tosee if there was anything in the otherdirection. Desperate for a cold one,we stopped into VII Restaurantacross the street from the hotel.Eh…not so much. Nanc & Reubie’s Trip to the UK A celebration of 20 & 50 years
The gang at the hotel suggested that we head over to The White Hart. So wewalked the half mile and, boy, there was a lot of fun had there on our first nightand we made a bunch of new friends: Alison (the cat lady), Gary (the bartenderfrom Edinburgh), and Mary (the funny blonde bar maid).After laughing, joking, and drinking with them all evening our sides hurt!Reubie found Tennent’s to be about his speed, as for me Strongbow is evenbetter fresh from the tap.

When Gary and Mary found out how much I liked Strongbow cider, they literally loaded me up with TONS of Strongbow SWAG they had left over from a Halloween promotion last fall. Posters, buttons, a huge bar-mat, a glass, fangs, and wolfman wigs and gloves. Seriously! Wolfman wigs and gloves! Reub and I paraded around the pub wearing them for a big laugh.Nanc & Reubie’s Trip to the UK A celebration of 20 & 50 years
Details of anything that happened later that evening are a little foggy…We staggered back to the hotel, had dinner, and promptly crashed in bed for the night. … and that is the story we are sticking with. Nanc & Reubie’s Trip to the UK A celebration of 20 & 50 years
