1 purveying whiskey and loud music.
4 x theatre bar purveying spirits and cake.
3 x purveying a beer garden and over priced vodka until I got cast discount (score).
1 which did not purvey Sunday lunch due to its special 'Festival Menu'.
1 launch party with free gin.
1 where I didn't worry about the prices because I wasn't paying. (score. Even though there was a cast discount involved for the person who was)
1 with connections to the famous Edinburgh Bobby.
1 where no one sitting round the table ordered alcohol.
1 where the beer pump broke mid-pint pouring.
1 on the Royal Mile which still wasn't the most expensive pub of the month.
2 x underground theatre bar with joyously eclectic furniture.
1 chain pub where even though we weren't drinking alcohol one of our group was ID'd.
Bruises/ Notable Injuries / Ailments:
Three. At least one of these deserves, if not its own blog post, then most definitely its own tweet.
One blister [left foot].
The Billy The Kid throat infection type thing (hear me growl)
Number of times I have been flyered:
A triumphant Forty One.
Number of times it has rained (on me):
Seventeen (would have be worse but lucked out with my raining-during-shows quota)
Number of spotteds:
Stewart Lee! Finally!
Either I saw the guy who played Rosencrantz in the David Tennant Hamlet walking down Cowgate today or it was someone who looks *very* like him. Until proven otherwise I'm going for the former because I am clutching at straws here.
Still clutching at straws.
Andrew Clover in the audience for a show. Does he count?
