I'm a US person currently living in the UK, specifically Cambridge, and this is the first election I've been present for. I like to watch election coverage on TV in a pub with a bunch of left-leaning politically-clued-in people. I've sampled a lot of Cambridge pubs and I've noticed that among their many charms is an absence of televisions. Is there a place where I can watch election coverage over a pint (or several)? The closer to the city centre the better, but I'm not picky.
I once had a pint glass that a roommate left behind when moving out. It was a regular 16-oz pint glass, with a drawing of a beaver and the tagline "Where Beavers Go to Eat and Drink." I don't have the glass anymore, but I would like to find it for sale somewhere. Except I can't remember enough about it to search for it, other than that tagline! Do you recognize the tagline? Where is it from? [more inside]

Spending a week in accommodation in Brockley, London, in early October. To be specific, Manor Avenue Brockley London, SE4 1TE. As London seems to be the place where you literally breathe out money in order to survive, keen to do this on as low a budget as possible. Will not have a car and prefer walking where possible.

Some time in the last 12 months, I watched a BBC programme in which the presenters visited an event held outside a pub somewhere in England. According to my vague recollection, the point was to fish a rag out of a bucket of beer using the end of a broomstick, and then fling said beery rag at bystanders. I had thought that the programme in question was Oz and James Drink to Britain, and that this had taken place in Lewes, East Sussex, but even with variations on those things as search terms I can find no reference to this online. Has anyone heard of this? What is it called? Where and when does it take place?

Have you any personal recommendations for gay nightlife—particularly on a Thursday night—in Manchester, England? There are numerous clubs, pubs, and party nights abound, particularly in the gay village area, but I'm looking for particular favorites for a gay male traveler (40ish) visiting on a Thursday night who enjoys a good booty-shaking evening of dance and drink. (Favorite club nights in London, as an example, include G-A-Y at the Astoria.) What say you?
