An innings too far...

On Friday we headed to the Oval after work to watch Surrey v Glamorgan in a T20 game which was especially important to us as Soph is Welsh from Cardiff and Sarah from Surrey.

Tickets were only 22 pounds and beers under a fiver (which we were suprised at). The atmosphere was electric with a really close match, Mexican waves a plenty and empty beer towers being built all around the stands. There was a great mix of people there from families to work parties and much to our suprise; a fair few Welsh haters.  Even if you are not interested in the cricket at all then it is worth going for the banter, oh, and beers of course. Also if you catch the ball off a six you could win £1000 - we were willing the ball over to us but alas it didn't and Sophs team beat mine by 4 runs.

We left the Oval and headed home via a fave of ours, the Peckham Pelican. This place has a great vibe and does seriously good £6 cocktails although annoyingly last orders are 10:30. Not wanting our Friday night to end we headed along Bellenden road and sunk a few in The Victoria Inn opposite The Beggin Bowl. This is a really nice pub with a big outdoor area and lots of seats inside.  A double and mixer in here will however set you back about £8. Upon closing we literally staggered into Peckham's newest bar - Four Quarters. It is safe to say this is one of the coolest bars we have been to with the unique mix of retro arcade games and craft beers. It took us both quite a long time to realise that the games were free as our beer brains had well and truly kicked in! This place has a really nice laid back atmosphere with everyone really enjoying the arcade games. The bar staff and door staff were extremely friendly and we will 100% be returning.

NB rooster spot ain't bad for a late night chicken burger either :P, and as always for a hangover cure the guys at alibaba juice are the best!
