Well, in light of the fact that Stafford’s number one live music pub now seems to be being run by someone who either doesn’t know how to run such an establishment or perhaps just doesn’t care (or maybe a bit of both), I am heartened these past couple of days to see Stafford respond in the appropriate style. First sign of this came yesterday with the announcement that the Bear & Pheasant open mic Fridays will no longer be fortnightly but weekly. This is great news. I haven’t been to the B&P open mic for a while, and Fridays are a little tricky for me just at the moment, but the ones I attended a while back were brilliant, so I’ll try to come along and check it out sometime over the coming weeks for sure. Secondly, a week tonight it’s Pelo live at the newly reopened Bear, which will surely be a great night! Thanks for being awesome, Stafford!!!
