    Tut 'N' Shive - Doncaster
    Tom and Jerrys - Puerto Rico, Gran Canaria

    And they are the only two I can think of that I've liked. Although, that one Chris took me to in Germany was good. We need one like that here !

    I'll be completely honest. Some of the best bars/pubs I've been to have been right here in Halifax. The Seahorse Tavern, The Old Triangle, The Lower Deck, The Split Crow...Boy, if there's one thing Halifax has in abundance, it's watering holes. Trapper John's in St. John's, Nfld. is a good spot too. That's where I was screeched in. ;)
    Great town, St. John's. Very friendly girls.

    I've been to Tom and Jerry's in San Juan, pD. It wasn't bad.

    St Johns is probably the best place I've ever been on a pub crawl . Did you ever get to the Crows Nest there?

    Sadly, no. It's private now from what I understand, and we were never able to organize a visit. I'd still love to see the inside of the joint, it's an interesting little piece of St. John's history. Apparently the artifacts from the crews of WWII who visited there are all preserved. It's recognized as a National Historic site, if I'm not mistaken.

    Even had a U boats periscope when i visited it plus a crest of just about any corvette or destroyer that had been in the Atlantic in WW2 .
    The Crowsnest was the bar the ships officers went to when they got to St Johns it served breakfast 24/7 I believe it was the official home for the Seagoing Officers of the escort ships it has collection of gunshield art amongst other naval stuff and it is still a pub

    someplace in Dublin, close to St Stephens Green. I was sitting jus below the band, the bass player went out of Marlboro and I had 2 packs, so for the whole night i tossed him cigarettes and he half emptied his (continuosly renewed) beer in my glass...

    And 'La Frega' at Spessa, along the Po river. It had over 400 different beers and all choices of bread, salami and hot chili pepper. Unfortunately now is a restaurant.

    I thought you could only get in now through special invite or some such thing. You sure it's still open to the general public? Twice when I was in St. John's, members of the crew expressed an interest to see the place, and both times we fell flat. Once because they were hosting a reunion of some kind, and the second time the ship's liason officer was too lazy to get off his a*s and organize anything. I still wanna see it. I don't get to Newfie land very often anymore.

    Yeah, that's what I thought. It's a private club. You have to pay a membership fee.
