Went to the Skuba Bar last night and sat in their new conservatory for the first time. We had two smokers with us who were very pleased to see they've found some kind of loophole against the smoking ban. The walls of the conservatory can be opened right up, so they don't quite count as walls, and the roof can be rolled back too, but to all intents and purposes it seems to me this is an enclosed are.
They have lots of heat lamps inside, but it was still a bit chilly for me, so we headed off to Chambers.
This is part of my site The 'Gerald that I set up in a fury of excitement when we first moved here in approximately 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years before that but I am technically one of those DFLs you get nowadays. The site was a lot more dynamic with a calendar of events and voting for favourite venues and things, and I hear it was a useful reference for those who were thinking of moving to the area. 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 The town is becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. My name is not Gerald by the way, this comes from the name of a pretend newspaper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
