Chis in san diego. That's how i picture hank although he'd be a bit more agressive and somehow more sexy.

@yankspurs
Chris and his wife Hannah are way too sweet and charming.

I was told a while ago that when I became a Tottenham fan I'd be a part of a huge family around the world where every spurs fan is my brother. How true this is.

I'm sure the yiddos in NYC will make the most of your visit Grey Fox. Plenty of friends of mine have ventured through that door with a warm welcome

First one’s on me. The rest depend on how many Spurs goals that you bring with you ;-)
Just checked its 24th not 22nd and I think its an early kick off so two questions
1) Do they serve alchohol at 8.30 am ?
2) Do they serve proper bitter or do I have to put up with Bud? 😁

We are an early morning drinking club, so no worries about having an 8.30am tipple. But, sorry to say there really aren't any proper bitters served at Flannery's. A few craft brews and IPA's will have to suffice when slumming with us.

Goose Island IPA and Boston’s Samual Adams are excellent. My go to in Trump land. Unfortunately you used to get Samual’s by export but now it’s brewed here in the uk and is piss water in comparison. Thankfully Goose is exported and is in most good supermarkets...and some bad ones too😁

Proper cask conditioned beer is very hard to come by in the states but most Irish pubs will have bottles of some of the more mass-produced English beers like Green King, Samuel Smiths, Speckled Hen etc. (admittedly usually at an extortionate price it has to be said). You'll occasionally see the keg versons of English beers like Boddingtons and all that but it's not proper cask ale obviously.

Your best option is to try some of the local craft beers but they're usually very different to what we're used to in England. American craft IPAs are a completely different breed to what we call IPAs back home. That's not to say they're worse or anything, just don't be fooled by the name and expect it to be similar to what you're used to

If all else fails everywhere has the usual lagers that you get everywhere at home e.g. Stella, Heineken etc. anyway so long story short, whatever happens you won't be forced to drink Bud :D

Havent been to Flannery’s yet and likely wont make it there for a few months unless circumstances change and i can move down to the city quicker, but anyone in NY Spurs, what do you get for the membership? Im looking into it now as i think its still open for the moment. Is it worth signing up now as opposed to doing so when you can actually go to the bar?

I go to Banter quite alot on Saturdays with my buddy in Brooklyn whose City. We go there as its more a general football bar even though brooklyn spurs meet up there and it never really gets packed out except for big PL matches so its easy to post up at the bar. I mean, theres nothing really stopping me besides myself from just going to flannery’s one day before moving down there but id feel like a loner showing up not knowing anyone when its likely to be packed to the brims when id even get there. At least when i move into the city, i could get there earlier and just post up at the bar before the crowd arrives and work my way into the group that way.

Membership is just $10 and it gets you on our mailing list, a shirt discount, access to Thfc ticket reservations and club activities like our christmas party. We're a more open group than we used to be as the club has grown and interest in Thfc has attracted so many american footie fans. There's not a lot of pressure to become a member other than to participate in club functions, so head to Flannery's, have a beverage and sing a song with your fellow Spurs supporters. Your City supporting mate will not be allowed in wearing the colors of his club, so please have him head to Banter or learn how support a club that doesn't offer instant gratification. While we may be more open than in previous years, we are still very tribal and very focused on one club only. Make yourself known and I'll be happy to buy you a pint.

Thanks, mate. I became a member yesterday while in my drunken stooper. Hopefully i'll make it over to Flannery's some time soon.
