I mentioned it the other day, but I want to explain this new project in more detail.
The starting point will be the Karlovo nám.–Moraň tram stop, where the most lines go through. I will take the first tram coming from either direction and will get off at the sixth stop. There, I will find a pub, have a couple of beers and maybe some food, and go back to the stop I god off at, where I will take tram coming from either direction and will get off, this time, at the fourth stop, where I will find a pub, etc., etc. The procedure will be repeated, always starting from the last stop I got off at, until I can't be arsed any longer.
Originally, the legs were going to be 10 stops each, but I thought it would make the trips unnecessarily long, so I cut it to six stops one way and four, the other; eliminating the risk of going back too soon where I started, or swinging endlessly between two stops.
Since I won't know where I'll be going, there will no point in doing any research at home, and since I don't carry internet in my pocket, I will have to trust my memory, if I know the area, or my instincts, if I don't. In any case, the pubs I visit will have to be new to me.
I'm very excited about this project. During the fieldwork for the 2nd edition of The Pisshead's Pub Guide, I sort of rediscovered the joy of going into a new pub in my city. And this time, it'll be even better: I won't have any schedule or greater purpose, other than putting together a review that will hopefully be more than the veni, vidi, bibit kind. It's certainly a lot more fun than drinking a new beer at home, alone, make a photo and write a bullshit tasting note or get the latest badge at Untappd.
Stay tuned, the first adventure is coming soon.
