And I thought the British liked to Drink

So last night after spending yet another evening after another morning working I decided it would be nice to go get a Drink at a Pub. So I walk the 4 blocks away sit down at the bar, and get told the place is closed. So very annoying it was like 11:15, so I walk home, on the way back stoping in a little shop to get a snack and a 6 pack, and all the alcohol was locked up. Major suckage, guess you got to get drunk early in London.
