Beer Me Up, Scotty

Banners are going up all around town, advertising the Planet Thanet Ale Festival 2006. The Festival, which is taking place on Easter Friday and Saturday, will be situated over on the less trendy West Cliff, and promises 40 kinds of beer, as well as two types of curry.

The official website says 'It's all systems go'. Quite. Let's pray the wind's not blowing in this direction on those two days.

There is one place you can go to guarantee the smell will be blowing away from you, right in the middle of it!
I've heard this trick can also be employed in the event of a nuclear blast. The theory being that at the epicenter, the worst that is likely to happen is that your brolly will get turned inside-out.
I'm happy to get along to the ale fest. and test out the theory there.
Any volunteers for the Pakistan trip to complete the second half of the experiment?

Well I hope the Coatguard'd been alerted. By the time the locals have forgotten their medication and got a couple of pints of proper beer inside 'em, they'll be over the top like lemmings!
