it's not big.. - Echoes of Flavio's Ghost Dreaming — LiveJournal
it's not big..
Went to the Big Red last night to meet a friend, we had a good time. By 'good time', I mean we had to shout at each other to be able to have a conversation, she eventually started messaging me on Facebook even though we were sitting next to each other, while a covers' band was belting out some 1970's rock song I hadn't heard since about then. We eventually gave up and left.

I have this love/hate relationship with rock pubs -mostly hate, last night. They more often are places where they serve you expensive bad beer in glasses of questionable cleanliness, with a scowl and where you have to shout to have a conversation. In that, I know I feel differently to some who still may read this, but that is how it is for me. I go to those places because people I know and like do but I don't really enjoy them.

I've been to Big Red exactly once and don't really plan to ever go there again, unless I really, really want to meet somebody who absolutely insists going there. For all the reasons you mention.

:D It's not too bad early on a quiet week-day evening when it hasn't got going yet. Friday night was hell.

I haven't been to that place in a long time. Not since Dave's collective had their acoustic jam sessions there, that was a lot of fun. Agree about having to shout at people to have a conversation. I've never been fond of the sexist image the Big Red cultivates and now that I don't drink, there doesn't seem to be any reason to go there at all.
Agreed, perhaps on a slower weeknight.
I just don't like to be in any places that are rammed full of drunks.

In fairness there was a band playing, so it isn't really aimed at talking. At a rough guess when you do your recitals I'm guessing you don't cater for people talking all the way through it...
