MIDWEEK PINTS HIT their glorious peak on Thursdays.

They’re defined by looming commitments the next day and a litany of lies you can’t help but tell yourself.

And the timeline looks something like this:

11am: “Nah, I won’t join you. Will probably have a quiet one in tonight”

6.21pm: “I’m actually feeling a bit thirsty, not gonna lie”

The justification begins.

7.08pm: “Sure I can’t skip out on a round, I’ll get the next ones”


Pint number two is happening.
