It depends where you go especially at night in the CBD (such as the West End)

All in all, I really enjoyed some of the pubs around Adelaide, but couldn't easily find them without local knowledge. Would I be right in assuming that most folks stick to their local pubs as opposed to venturing into the city?
Bit old this website, though it lists all the current/former hotels in Adelaide. I'm pretty shocked by the huge number of pubs in the city alone.

That map is wrong. It suggests that people in Alberton aren't bogans.

The SPAM Thread

Hi guys, sorry I've been offline for the past few days. Moved to Henley Beach on the weekend and have had major issues with getting the phone and internet back on. However thank god its all been sorted out.

P.S I've decided to start a new spam thread, especially considering alot of the stuff on there is over 3 years old! and its pure junk.

However if your after the old thread, I've archived it.

Some naughty people lit fires to about 7 bins about a minute before me as I walked down Rundle Mall tonight. Looked like a series of camp fires. Fire truck was very quick though. One bins flame was almost 2 mtrs high. Naughty boys. Pretty dumb considering how much CCTV is along Rundle Mall and Hindley St.

So, what else is going on?

That's actually a pretty great idea. How about flame throwers like the ones outside Crown Casino in Melbourne going down the centre of the mall about 75 metres apart. That'd be what, about 6-8 flames....on gas....shouldn't be too expensive. I love those Crown flame throwers. Fire rocks.

I'm loving the new Rundle Lantern and this warm and sunny weather..

Took some stunning sunset photos from the beach on my mobile last night, which I'll try to upload later.

I had never ever been to the Gilbert St pub until tonight. Is pretty nice.
Come to think of it, Ive never been inside the Flagstaff, or that pub on Wright St (forgotten name), or inside the Arab Steed. Crikeys, I though ive done them all.
Has anyone on here been and had a drink at every single pub in the city.

And the Astor, dont know if ive been there or not

Only a few years ago this was a bustling sub forum where the spammers roamed free (myself included). But now this place really is dead, it really does need a revival somehow.

Good job Crawf btw for organizing all the thread titles a while back.
