Hello Stranger!

So it is has been quite some time since the last post. For that i sincerely apologise.
A lot has happened since we last spoke, I say "spoke" but its not really speaking is it?-I type something and you read it...anyway...allot has happened...well, that's not true but a lot is about to happen, The Green Room is going though a transformation of note!
With the might of Patron behind us we are going to be starting an event called "Decaf Fridays" its gonna be held on the first Friday of every month.


There will be Bands, DJs, Patron Specials, Give Aways, 2 for 1 Cocktails and much more.
So keep you ears peeled and your eyes open!

Thursday

What? DJ's at The Green Room!



Yes that's right there will be DJ's tomorrow night...so best get down there for some dirty tunes and some
dirty 2 for 1 cocktail deals (only £6)

Why did i do that?



In this business you see a lot of drunk people and you see a lot of drunk people do allot of drunk things-you know the kind of things you don’t really remember (or choose not to remember)…that is, until you walk in to the office the next day. I just so happened to witness one of these scenarios. It was an office party and a colleague and his boss were having an intense conversation, arms draped over each other’s shoulders-you know “Best Friends” kind of shit. So anyway, the conversation went on for a bit the occasional sway, after all they had been drinking for quite some time and it was an open bar. Then, all of sudden, “Boss” started talking really close to his face and then …Mwah, just laid a fat kiss on his lips which seemed to go on for just too long. It was that length of time that if you had to see it, made you feel kind of uncomfortable. I then cast my eyes slightly to the left and saw another colleague was filming it on his Iphone…he no doubt will be getting a pay rise next week.

I want you to tell me the things you really need to stop doing when you’re drunk.
The best story will get a £20 bar tab at The Green Room!

Monday

Guest List?




Lately I have found my self in Westfields- a massive shopping centre- quite a bit, just wondering around aimlessly killing time before going to work.
Now, they have a shop in there - I ‘m not gonna mention any names - the cloths are great, if your tall, ripped, have messy blond beach hair and a six pack but the thing I don’t get is, that in order for you to actually get in side you need cue up, and its not just a little 4 or 5 person cue its huge, there is at least a half an hour to 45 minute wait to get inside.
They have just opened up sister company in the same centre, you pretty much have to do the same thing there but they have gone one step further and have one those rope railing thingies that you find outside clubs.
The most ridiculous bit- never mind having to wait in a cue for an hour- I happened to notice a girl at the door with a clip board in her hand flipping pages and ticking things as you go in, now please tell that is not a f#!king guest list and if it is then I would love to know how you get on that guest list and if it costs anything to be pushed to the front of the cue… “Ah man my friends are gonna be so stoked that I managed to get us on to the guest list” To what? Get in to an F’ing clothing store?
To be fare making people cue outside your shop is just genius, there is no ways you are gonna stand a cue for an hour finally get inside, look around and go “um...you know what, its just not me” You’re gonna make sure you walk out of there with something in your hands even if it is just a pair of £50 socks.

Air Sports?

I was out and about on Saturday with my girlfriend and her mother who had come to stay with us over the weekend - fun times - we were walking around in South Ken and I happened to notice this guy playing air cricket. You know, pretending to hit a ball - he was doing it with such dedication and seemed to know exactly where the ball was gonna go and his friend looked at him as if he was his coach.

His eyes glued to the bowler/dustbin across the street.
He draws back his bat in slow motion as if he were a Die Hard scene...As the "ball" approaches he takes a step forward then thrusts the "bat" forward but holds in position for just too long and looks to the heavens... WTF!
He didn't even try to score any runs, I mean I'm no umpire but that looked like a good shot to me.
...Actually thinking about it - he probably doesn't even play cricket nor does his friend and I bet you don't see professional cricket players hitting imaginary balls with imaginary bats in the middle of a busy side walk...
Sit tight for the weeks happenings!

Dear Blog!


Yes I know it has been a while since I have posted anything, but when I am not doing this I am out saving the world and that can be pretty time consuming.

"Dear Blog" - I am sorry, but that has got to be the worst blog title in all of the land, it invokes the same rage Iget when tapping in at a freakishly busy underground station and getting that "Seek Assistance" message. No, I don't need any assistance I just want to get through these giant flaps and to my next destination without having to go back and wait in the cue to top up my oyster card. So I tap it again knowing full well that there is no credit on there and knowing full well that the man behind me is slowly fashioning a shank out of his Pret a Manger sandwich box...Seek Assistance!

Now that I have got that off my chest...last weekend was full of musical delights.
Foxy shook the walls with her powerful voice and no doubt she will definitely be back. The Collective was amazing - top class musicianship!

This Friday you can check out one of the masterminds behind The Collective, he will be playing from 8 p.m.

Check out all the pics from Friday right HERE

?But... What?

video
So it has been a whole week.

Hugh played on Friday and it was titillating to say the least.
So i was standing behind the bar when this dodgy looking geezer comes up to me and says "can i get a double JD innit" so i pour it for him and he just walks away, goes over to Hugh and starts harassing him. Now i am thinking great there always has to be one at the party. Before i could go over and tell him to leave the musician alone as hes not a juke box out of nowhere he turns around with a mic in his hand and starts beat boxing along with Hugh, then afterwards came up to the bar and asked me how much his drink was, so said "that's 5 quid man"...no not really a gave to him for free, i mean come on the dude has just put down some serious skills and the crowd loved it.

Then came Sunday/Staff Party...
WOW!
The Three Bars

Once upon a time there were three bars.The Union Paddington (Daddy Bar), The Union Chiswick(Mummy Bar), and The Green Room(The best Bar), they decided to have a little get together on a Sunday evening. 
They all gathered at "The Best Bar" and the night started out very civil... 
and then all hell broke loose, people were dancing, singing and laughing. this wasn't suppose to happen it was supposed to be a boring staff party...
Now there are people sliding or at least attempting to slide down the tables...
Now they are dancing on the bar and having water fights...
Now they kissing each other, boys and girls, boys and boys, and Oh Yeah! girls and girls...
Now there falling over, Daddy Bar, Mummy Bar and...
wait The Best Bar is still standing...well barely...
Now there being sick in the back, out the front and on them selves...
Now they are sleeping on the floor, on the pool tables and out the back...
The next day there was not a sound not even a murmur only the left overs of the night before, all the bars went on the merry ways and not a word was said.

The End

You can check out the photos in Eye Candy!

Monday

What's been happening?

Yes, it has been a couple of days now since the last post, a lot has happened. Hugh Neal played on Thursday night and killed it -you can check him out next Friday.
video

Friday was the start of the Six Nations - I am by now means a rugby fan (or sports fan at all really), and Friday was absolute carnage, I literally watched a man drink two bottles of Jagermeister, maybe twelve cans of red bull and was (at least I think) still able to spell his name.
Going to be planning a fundraiser on the 19th of February for the Australian flood victims, mate - so watch this space for further details.
On the 25th of February there is going to be a big one! A group called "The Collective" are going to be playing and opening a band called “Foxy” – it’s only going to cost five pounds and I guarantee you it’s going to be like fairies have fornicated on your ear drums.

Oh!
I have also decided to start a new page called "I Over Heard It".

I had stopped at Tesco’s (sort of convenience store) to get some essentials before work and was standing behind two girls, and happened to over hear their conversation...

Thursday

Midget in a tiger suit

Good day to all the millions and millions of devoted readers I have, tonight the one and only Hugh Neal is going to be playing from 8 PM.
So last night two girls, whose names I cannot reveal as I just don’t remember, managed to charm us in to letting them stay behind for a drink after we had closed, for some reason they seemed to think that this was a lock in. I have no idea why, the door was never locked they could have left at anytime.
Now I don’t know what they have heard or if they have actually ever had a lock in but they seemed to be expecting something fantastic to happen, and kept asking with big child like eyes “So what happens at a lock in” well, nothing really, it’s not as if a giant mirror ball descends from the ceiling, dancers rise up from the floor and burlesque-like waitresses bring you cocktails whilst a midget dressed up as a tiger blows fire at the front door to keep out all of the “unlucky ones”. No no, just a couple of pints and then home. The thing that surprised them the most… their bill, they actually thought they were going get free drinks all night.

Tuesday

Free Pint Thursday!

This Thursday we have Hugh Neal playing, and the offer still stands, if you bring a signed photo of your self i will give you a free pint... or two depending on how much imagination you have put in.

Monday, mmmmmmm!

I have a blackberry torch, now can any tell me what the hell UMA stands for or means at the top of my screen because ever since i have noticed it, i  make calls then half way through the conversation i cant here the other side anymore but they can still hear me, now this got me in to trouble because i got so hacked off that i projecktiled a string of four letter words at my phone and then hung up, not realising yet that the person could still hear me. Any way, photos of the weekend are to come and this Thursday is gonna be big, Hugh Neal is gonna be playing.

Thursday
