I recently went to a bar in Fort Collins called Dungeons and Drafts, and they had all kinds of fantasy RPG type memorabilia, and all the drinks were references to video games and stuff. It was sweet!
So, crap timing as you've just left, but could I get a couple While In London recs? Will be there for five days with (after plane tickets and hotel) not much fun-money. Staying right by the Victoria & Albert, and mostly planning to wander the city alternately drinking tea and beer. Any Must Drink/Eat/Sees? (Also, do you think there will be such a thing as a mellow pub on New Years?)
