In 2004, myself and John McCooke decided to keep count of all the pubs we went to. Several loose rules were made: you must have a drink in each, a pub can be counted only once per night, restaurants don't count but clubs do, trains don't count but ferries have proper bars in them so they do, music festivals were fudged with a count of one visit per day, and several other rules that were made up and probably broken later in the year.
In the end, John just pipped me for most pubs visited in the year. What a slag. But I was out for more nights, so there's some consolation. But it was never a competition, it was the taking part that counted. Oh yes, it was the taking part.
Here's the results:
