Default Will you be back in the pub?

As soon as it opens this weekend?

I won't, can't see me going to the pub for a long time. Lot's of my friends have said they will be there and many have booked tables....but I just don't fancy it yet.

However no way at all would I even consider going at this time.

We can agree to disagree on ginger being the reason you don't need to dye your hair.

No. I genuinely have no desire to go to the pub at all. I think it will be manic.

No, no idea why you’d want to straight away when you can have friends over in the garden for drinks or meet outside elsewhere. It’ll be like a cattle farm, really don’t see how you’d be able to enjoy yourself.

No, I predict they'll be closed down in a week or two again.

People are getting ahead of themselves and acting like it's all over and I doubt it'll be over for a long time to come yet.

I am going on Saturday, had to pay a deposit to book the table as well and it was very expensive! (£10 per a person!). I’ve also got my haircut booked in the morning

Other than the kids being at home all day (which has its plusses and negatives, honestly), supermarket one-way systems, and aforementioned Zoom feelings-circles ... my life is literally no different to the before-times. I dunno if that's a good thing or a bad thing .

I would love a trip to the cinema though . I don't go all that often, maybe 3 or 4 times a year, but I hadn't been for a while before lockdown so I'm getting itchy feet.

Might set up a little blackout tent around the telly and hide in it with a film, popcorn, and a Tesco pick'n'mix one day once schools are back .

We like to go to the pub now and then just for one/two drinks. But we will let things settle down more before we go. We found a nice spot by the canal...so during lockdown and the nice weather we took a drink down there...it was lovely.

No since all my friends can't go and meet on the same table so we're gonna keep doing house parties and drinks at the park for now.

All the rules and guidelines just makes it sound too restricted and miserable too.

I agree with that too although I'd totally go to a restaurant where all of the tables are separated by big dividers. I wish they had always been like that .

I've come up with this concept where you go to the restaurant, go down a corridor into a nice little "pod" with your table, order on an app and then your meal arrives via a little elevator. You never even see another human face except the people you're with. BLISS.

Doesn’t really appeal to me anymore at the best of times, never mind in these.
