(In case you haven’t realised yet, it’s on a Thursday this year 🍛🍛😍🍛🍛)
14. You spend all night hoping your table doesn’t end up looking like this.
15. There’s always one who tries the Christmas Ales and instantly regrets it.
16. And more than one who inevitably shouts “SHOTS” at 10pm.

18. As midnight rolls around people start suggesting you move on.
aka go hard.
