⬆️When will they learn?

Does Folkestone really need any more apartments? I know it has lots of pubs and they're all empty, but that's because there are almost none that are worth going to.

I heard somewhere, perhaps on the councillor's own blog that he lived there, and that he'd lived there as a child (if I'm thinking of the right person) but I didn't know he was the landlord / tenant. Also, I didn't know that Euphoria was meant to be a gay bar, I usually avoid those pre-club type places. Haven't been in there at all since it's been the Three Mackeral I don't think, though I think we got as far as the front door in each of its last three or four incarnations and just thought "no thanks" and gone somewhere else.

We had a drink outside there once in the daytime when it was Euphoria, when the sun is shining it's a nice spot, but the last time I really liked it was when it was called The Front, though I don't think that survived long either did it?

Which previous landlord are you then? Or are you the landlord of a neighbouring rival tavern? They're all pretty ropey down there.

This is my site The 'Gerald that I set up in a fury of excitement when I first came here sometime in '04. I had been a frequent visitor for a while before that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. This site was updated more frequently with a gig calendar + voting for favourite places and things, + I hear it was a useful reference for others who were moving here. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only to Hythe) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as Folkestone itself is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. My name is not Gerald by the way, the name comes from the name of a pretend newspaper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, + how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do get in touch if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
