WHICH OFFERS SPECTACULAR VIEWS OWER PORTO
(BAR NUMBER 024)

                     "100 NOT OOT!"---WE'VE DONE IT!"

Six years ago, durin' the 2012-2013 season, we did a '100 PUB CRAWL CHALLENGE' for NUFC home games! 
We had ne idea just how many drinkin dens there were within the 'NE1' poscode area and if it woz possible to de it!  

To wor amazement we actually did 102 pubs/clubs ower the season!---and there were still loads we hadn't done!
Aall the bars/clubs were within 20 minutes waalkin distance of St James' Park!
We had decided (against wor better judgement!) to try and de at least 100 pubs/clubs etc for AWAY games this season!

 In pre season we visited 38 'liquid lubrication locations' on wor travels to Barrow in Furness, Ireland, Cornwall and Portugal! (Theeze included airport bars and a butchers shop in Porto that sold beer!) (17 bars/butchers visited in Porto in total!)
Wor forst away game in The Premyaa Leegue sent us to Cardiff, where we did 9 bars in 2 days at various locations!.
We indexed aall the drinkin dens az we did them---the anly rule bein' that we COULDN'T  include the same bar twice, even on different visits to say London, for example!

 Amazingly!--we have created history and done 100 aalready, the 100 woz done on Saturday 2nd March at precisely '9:33pm bells' when we visited The Oxford Arms in Camden Town, London!!!
(West Ham game)
The latest pub crawls took us to Woking last Friday to watch wor U23s play Reading and last Saturday when we heeded for Bournemoooth---bringin' the total to 108 bars/clubs etc

We are very surprized that we have 'done it' so quickly! 
When we gan to Lestaa in April for example, we gan to 'The Regent Club' and stop there for 'the duration'!--(ie: just ONE bar)
At Nottingham Forest in the Leegue Cup last year we anly managed to de ONE drinkin' den because of delays--- and at Man City we did 3, but one of them woz a bar we had been te on the way to Cardiff in between trains---so we couldn't include it again (The Whiskey Jar)
Just one new bar v Liverpool az well (we did Barlow Arms again but can't include that eethaa) 

London woz wor best bet to 'de it', and of course we HAVE, az there are a multitude of bars at various locations! (30 different London bars so far in 9 away trips!)

With just 4 forst team away games left and possibly one U23s game, we can improve that total by a lang way!


Those "Go Sober in October!" and "Dry January!" campaigners had better watch oot! ---az The Geordie Times iz 'fightin' back' and haz broken the 100 boozer barrier!
"Go high OCTane in OCTober!"
"Lets gan on a bender in November and December!"
"Lets gan on 'the bevvy' in Janu-ery!"---"and Febu-ery!"

Theeze are excitin' times for 'The Geordie Times entourage'! <(we naa aall the BIG words!)  

THE 100 AWAY PUB CRAWL CHALLENGE IZ DONE!
---100 'liquid lubrication locations'---and coontin'!
("We're there!---we're there!"---"GET THE DRINKS IN!")
