- Who remembers Sunday night being a proper night out?
Maybe it still is but I don’t do it anymore.
But i remember Sunday nights being awesome. It was a while ago – when pubs were shut from 15:00 ’till 19:00. We’d meet up in a local pub, have couple of pints and then get the no. 57 bus up to “the top road” – a stretch of the A666 in Pendlebury where there were a good few pubs. We’d hit the cheap doubles and then head to the disco in The Black Horse. Disco dancing on the sabbath eh? After a load more ale , we’d finish in The Trough chippy for chips and gravy with a sausage on top.

Yip, back in my days as an apprentice at the MOD. Used to waste all my holidays with either a Monday off due to the above, or a half day Friday, as we’d gone out on the Thursday night, went into work, felt rough as ****, then put a half shift in. By which point you generally felt alright, and went out again!.
Friday afternoon in the ‘trendy pub’ in town, 75p a pint and doubles for singles. Used to get messy.Posted 5 years agoyunkiMember
Sunday was always the most earthy..
Start upon waking on the Sunday morning to stave off the accumulated hangovers from Thursday, Friday and Saturday.. A couple of litres of cider or whatever to tide you over til the pub opens.. then it’s just a case of keeping your levels topped up for a hazy and raucous laughter filled afternoon, building up to the live band around tea time..
It was always just the hardcore left drinking by Sunday evening so shenanigans were 100% guaranteedPosted 5 years agomuppetWranglerMember
For a couple of years in my early twenties Sunday took on a quite a structure. Up early, bike ride for a few hours, lunch, clean the bike in the afternoon, couple of hours taking it easy then off to the cinema every Sunday night regardless of what was showing. Best way to appreciate a film is to know nothing about it before you watch it.Posted 5 years agobigblackshedSubscriber
Wednesday was the only night not out. College day as an apprentice so late finish.
Thursday was the rock club with good live band who were on the circuit.
Friday & Saturday was the blues and rock pub with live band.
Sunday lunch was classics DJ at the blues and rock pub.
Sunday afternoon was band practice.
Sunday night was blues band at the other pub.
Monday was, well it’s still the weekend!
Tuesday was the smaller rock club with live band.
No wonder I’m deaf as a post.Posted 5 years agobinnersSubscriber
Aaaaaaaaah – the legendary Sunday session.
We used to emerge dazed and befuddled from a Saturday night at Sankeys or the Hac and head for the pub. Pretty frequently the Sunday session would eclipse the previous nights debauchery. Except it was in our local. Jesus! I’m cringing at the thought of the shit we got up to. None of which I’d post up on a forum
Happy days 😀Posted 5 years agokevjMember
Back when pubs closed at half ten, there was a couple of Italian restaurants who would take bookings for between ten and half past. Once you were in, you ordered a bite to eat, but essentially it was a way around the licensing laws. I had some good times. Cracking atmosphere and poorly Monday mornings.Posted 5 years agomaccruiskeenSubscriber
^ loved how far some eateries could stretch that ^ Used to go to a place that was to all intents and purposes a kebab shop but somehow managed to pass itself off as restaurant even though it didn’t really have any chairs or tables to speak of. After 10 it would be full groups of folk sharing one kebab so that they could keep buying booze.Posted 5 years ago
