When I saw the thread name about pitchers at venues I thought you were talking about pitch pipes to make sure folkies stay in tune with each other.
Not really a musical question this one. The bit about it being especially difficult to get to the bar at folk venues is obviously a desperate ploy to keep the thread above the BS zone coming from somebody who wants to make out that his musical rather than his drinking enjoyment is being spoiled by having to make 'constant movements' to the bar . What about having to make constant movements to the toilet after drinking all the pitchers - that wouldn't spoil your musical enjoyment would it?
Only kidding , I like pitchers as well and plenty of them .
