Plan: That old classic, visiting pubs by all the properties (and stations) on the Monopoly board. We didn't do it in order this time, maybe we'll try that in the future though. Everyone has their own variations on the rules, ours were pretty much: half a pint or a shot in each pub, pubs must be on the correct road if possible, if a road has no pubs on then find the closest pub in sight of the right road, if there isn't a proper pub anywhere near then settle for the nearest restaurant or anywhere that will serve us.

Result: 4 of us set off, and we did it. By about 8.30. Will definitely have to try it in order next time.
