The Bothy's summer season finished last Sunday with an excellent evening by Robb Johnson. He was staying at ours for the night and we went through a couple of bottles of red wine and talked until very late. The next morning, I discovered the only thing I could offer him for breakfast was black coffee and a banana, as he's a vegan.
The Bothy doesn't stop, though. Every Sunday night we'll be running a free singaround in the same venue from tomorrow until 2 September. Why not come along and wash away the humiliation of the British team's lack of gold medals with songs and beer? That's every Sunday for the next 6 weeks, after which normal service will be resumed with the great John Kirkpatrick on the 9 September. Singers and musicians welcome, but you can also just listen if you want to.
The Bothy meets at the Park Golf Club, Park Road West, Southport, PR9 0JS. Real ale from Thwaites.
