It's just a small change, but the one I'm looking forward to the most
is finally getting rid of 'use strict' and 'use warnings' on 5.12.

Horse Bazaar on Little Lonsdale is small and we might struggle to get
a table, or hear each other, but it has decent drinks and cool
multimedia stuff. Often decent music too.

The Lounge on Swanston St is large, does food, beer and coffee. I
don't think they have any busy nights on a Wednesday, but I've never
really checked before either.

The Workshop on corner of Elizabeth and A'Beckett also does food, good
beers, cider on tap too, and has wifi.

Actually, yeah, I reckon the Workshop would be the best of those three.

It has more soul than Bar Deluxe, fewer exotic beers, but is cheaper to boot :)
