'Let's go to the pub and' *place any activity here*

Ahhhhhh, the pub. The PUB. The pub the pub the pub the pub the pub…
Say it out loud and notice how NICE it is… even just to speak the phrase.
There’s something round and hug-able about the pub. Something non-threatening and comforting, like the guy-friend you know will never put the moves on you.
The pub is a category in which England wins – there is no competition – no equivalent. The pub stands alone on the 1st-place podium with nothing coming even close to 2nd or 3rd. They say it’s lonely at the top, but the pub is never lonely…
No matter how many tube maps, pictures of Diana, cobbles stones, red phone booths, bowler hats or Big-Bens an American place plasters all over their walls, it can not, and will not, make it a pub.
You can celebrate, commiserate, relax, party, chat, sing, and even quiz at the pub.
You can eat, drink and snack at the pub.
You can get dressed up and go to the pub, or wear old jeans and a t-shirt to the pub. (Especially since the smoking ban, since your clothes won’t end up pong-tastic)
You can meet old friends or new friends at the pub.
Almost any phrase you could come up with, you could precede with ‘Let’s go to the pub and…’ and it would work!
I case you haven’t guessed, I like the pub…
