The Session #65 announced: Drinking alone

The SessionFor The Session #65 Nate Southwood asks that we write about going to the pub, or bar, alone.

Immediately brings about some interesting questions. I typed the headline for this, Drinking alone, before the post. But is going to the pub alone the same as drinking alone? It is surely different than drinking alone at home.

The way I see it is that I love beer and pubs and I don’t see why I should only go to the pub when I’m with other people.

Am I weird for going to the pub alone?

How do you feel about going to the pub alone? Do you feel it’s necessary to be around friends to spend time in a pub?

The next Session is July 6.

    When I drink alone, I prefer to be by myself. With nobody else. Going to the pub alone is great. You might actually talk to someone interested in beer. Even if they are drinking wild blue.

    I used to always go to the bar alone. I’d be on my way home from work, pop in for a drink or two, chat with the bartenders and/or people sitting at the bar, head on my way.

    When You drink alone at home you’ll probably end up as an alcoholic. When You go to a bar or pub you might meet new friends. Although there is a good chance you won’t remember then. So drinking alone is not a good idea anyway.
