Mrs ERJ and I were invited to a "Pub" last night.
More accurately, I was invited to a pub and I dragged Mrs ERJ along because she is more socially adept than I am.
We did not order. It was very loud inside. A band was playing. I am not good at lip-reading or American Sign Language.
There were easily twice as many people in the space as there was seating.
We left after about a half an hour as we had not ordered anything. As expected, Mrs ERJ left with several new friends and I left relieved that I had executed a social obligation without starting any (more) altercations.
Pubs are not my preferred habitat.
