Sounds like a good idea - taking pressure off the ER. I'll drink to that!

Heh, had a friend who worked at a pub across from Liverpool Street Station called the Locomotive or the Engine or something train-related. When I went to look him up for the first time, it was karaoke night and someone had smashed a beer bottle on some lucky diva's head. Shenanigans ensued.

I know it's not quite the same but in Norwich they have a special SOS bus parked at the end of Prince of Wales Road on Friday/Saturday nights to take care of the drunks falling out of all the clubs there, 52 weeks a year.

To my surprise last night I also saw 'Street Priests' for the first time too - not sure how long that's been going on for.

I have to say the drinking culture in Britain is pretty depressing. Every Monday the pavement on that road is covered with blood splatter from the weekend before.

"Bah! You play the sage detestably.
Now, here's one, lying by his trunk,
Proves his wisdom incontestably,
Getting sapiently drunk."

- 'The Quest of Merlin' by Richard Hovey (1891)

Here are a couple of videos of drunk girls (new window) having a great time! I am surprised that the girl in the second one didn't put anyone in a hospital.

Anybody else catch the patient farting when Miss Reporter was standing right by him? It's just under halfway through.
