It was never a stalwart - peripheral at best.

 

 

I have to agree here with you.

 

I cannot wait for it to open as Mullberry tavern, already has better choices of drinks and you never know we might get some heating now.

Well while it is sad to see Affinity go I will not be too sorry - yes towards the last 12 months it has been freezing in there and the choice of beer has been dire and I cannot wait to see how the new Boardwalk turns out.

 

It is also an interesting observation to make that places like Icons and Dempseys that let Tia Anna perform :love: are thriving as they support diversity on the gay scene whereas a place like Affinity which in the past has banned Tia Anna and would not let her perform on the closing night, has gone to the wall anyway ..... interesting !! :roll:

The people who have been have not had good reviews.

 

Not sure if things have improved since, I might try it this weekend.

 

I am sure I will post my comments of the night.
