Where I stayed
The lazy start to the day continued with burgers at the pub, train to Edinburgh with a quick look around while we waited for our train to Newcastle.
We checked into the YHA to be informed by the pleasant middle-aged man that breakfast was 7.30-9am. Not good news for our massive night in Newcastle, especially when he said we had to be earlier as a big group were coming in at 8.45am. We were about to write off brekkie when he said that he can make us a takeaway breakfast pack.
We got changed and hit the town. Dinner was skipped as Greg and Treggas were feeling dodgy after chicken bakes from Greggs so we headed straight to the bar
We started with jugs of cocktails at a few bars in the Gate then headed to the Groovy Wonderland, a retro-themed bar upstairs at Tiger Tiger. The waitresses wore short 70's fluro dresses and the dancers were in Jane Fonda-esque black leotards, pink tube socks and roller skates.The bar soon filled up with a few Hen's and Stag nights.
We headed next door to Sam Jack's which promised a circus every night! We could see a rodeo bull inside so we went in and decided to give it a shot. Whilst waiting a girl in a short dress went on first. A few bucks of the bull and her dress was around her waist allowing everyone in the bar to see her lacy underwear. THe guy on the controls had the bull going slower than usual so the crowd got maximum enjoyment. We were in hysterics. Treggas lasted about 27 seconds. Ez a little longer, only a slower speed of course.
There were dancers on all the balconies extending along the bar. They had an array of dance routines including the can-can and even throwing fire around. The centrepiece was a dentist's chair where you lay back on and chicks in lacy underwear pour shots down your throat and then gyrate over you. We both had shots. The place was packed and we stayed for a few rounds. The craziest being a dry ice \jaeger-bomb.
We then headed to another bar, City Vaults for one last drink. It was then a long trudge home as the taxi queue was massive even after we ate the pizza we ordered.
Newcastle was a great experience. Song of the night was "Don't Stop Believing" which was played at every pub.
