Historic Pubs

Posted on 2007/03/24 22:26:28 (March 2007).

[Thursday 22nd March]
So a guy had come over from the US office just over a week ago to "sort us out", and today was his last night in town. Having experienced the sheer banality and dreariness of business trips several times myself, I had made a bit of an effort to help make at least one or two of his evenings pass slightly less drearily. So tonight I had planned for a bit of an historic pub crawl. Similarly to yesterday it seemed everyone on the team couldn't make it for one reason or other, so it ended up just me and the guy from the US.

We went to many of my old favourites, including The Blackfriars, The Old Bank of England, The Seven Stars, The Cittie of Yorke and Ye Olde Mitre. Oh and as an additional bit of a treat we ate at Matsuri High Holborn. On the expensive side, but I rather liked it.

I know I'm in good company when someone reminds me of the more correct English: "... an historic..." I try to use this myself when I can. Good show!

Actually I read that back to myself and thought it was a typo!

What am I missing something?! Isn't "an Historic" correct? I thought it was... And I even studied English grammar!!! (unlike Italian grammar which I do not know)...
