Deliciously dirty night. Standup comedy with macaroni cheese burger. Food not for the weight conscious. Comics not for shrinking violets. We are neither so great night.

What can I say!!!! Whilst driving along the Main Street trying to find our hotel, we spotted a bar which we fancied popping into for a drink. On the whole we enjoyed our evening, the only down side was, the drinks were rather expensive
