'THE GEORDIE TIMES' 100 PUB CRAWL CHALLENGE!---ONE HUNDRED AND TWO! DOON!---NONE TO GAN!

Final update: 9:00am bells' Monday 7th May 2012
A Toon fan stands with his arms ootstreached in the doorway of   'The Newcastle Arms' after 'The Fiorentina flood fiasco!'
"Iz it still rainin'?---Like?"---he asks!


Forst of aall!---can aa say a very special 28,000 thank yoooz to wor regular and 'loyal' bloggers from the 124 countries and territories that have now visited us from the fower corners of the globe (and beyond!) (Rwanda in Africa bein' wor latest visitors!)

Az most of yiz aalready naa, 'The Geordie Times Tipplers' attempted to de sommik that we think nebody had ever done before!?--- to visit 100 pubs and clubs within 20 minutes waalkin' distance of St James' Park<("and aalways will be!") on matchdays this season and drink a pint of  'lush liquid lubricant' in each and every one of them! 

To be porfectly honest with yooo!, we HAD ne idea if there WERE 100 within waalkin' distance of the groond---SO!---there waz anly one way to find oot!---wasn't there!----and there WAZ! (easily!)

The participants/plonkies! were as follows!
'Fink the mad-sad groundhopper', 'Grumpy Stumpy' and 'Norman the Cowboy Plumber' (pictured above in a soakin' wet hooped 'T' shirt!) (he's 'hard' yi naa!)


We visited another 2 new 'liquid lubrication locations', before and after the Stoke game on Saturday 21st April to complete the list, and history waz made in 'The Star' when wor ONE HUNDREDTH! 'Tonsil Ticklin' Tavern' was chaalked off in just TWENTY GAMES! (an average of FIVE new boozers a game!)
The most expensive waaterin hole waz 'Bar 28', which iz where the old 'Blackett' pub waz @  FOWER POOND FORTY a pint! ('Grumpy Stumpy' got them!) ("ha! ha!")
The cheapest, by the way, iz 'The Bee Hive'  and 'Pumphreys' doon 'The Bigg Market @ £1.45 a pint! (aa got those by the way!---a'm not f*****' daft!)

For the shear 'hell of it' we did another 2 waaterin holes before wor final home game against The Blue Moonies of Manchester yesterday to take wor seasons total to 102 visited!

The records there to be broken next season lads and lasses!


"AND NOW YOOO'D BETTER BELIEVE US!"
'THE GEORDIE TIMES' ROUTE TO THE SUMMIT!---
VIA THE GREEN LINE!

If we were climbin' Moont Everest we would now be at the summit!
However!---we have to tell yoo that we have absoluteleee NE intention of deein' this in the foreseeable future as there are NE PUBS? on this Himalayan ootpost!----so wots the point of climbin' it!????



It shud be noted that EVERY drinkin' den visited  waz  within a 20 minute waalk of St James' Park with 'The Waaterline' on the quayside the furthest away! (and 'Shearers' the closest!)

We have now completed a century of 'waaterin holes' and this 'historic moment' came at preciseleee '6:30pm bells' on Saturday 21st April in 'The Star' on Westgate Road!
