A New Destination For Stag Weekends?

Sadly the boat has sailed on this one. Much like Prague was the stag do destination of choice in the Early 2000s, the Baltic states have now grown used to pissed up Mancunian estate agents urinating in their streets and attempting to fight local taxi drivers. As a result the vast majority of Latvians (quite rightly) think that all Brits are utter cnuts.

Agreed, 2DD. While it is nice to visit interesting foreign destinations, for us war-type people it becomes rather mundane after a while, so to be able to do something interesting in the UK for a change is rather nice. The sort of people who go to places like Riga/Prague/Dublin, etc., are the sort whose idea of exploring new experiences is trying the new kabab house down the High Street - they rarely have the opportunity to go outside their comfort zone.

And no matter where a stag/hen party ends up going, they will still be lumbered with the same people they congregate with down the sociall club week in, week out - including Barry the Geek from IT... :oops: It is the people, rather than the location, that makes a celebration memorable.

And just to further clarify the point:

The biggest complaint is about tourists who urinate on central Riga's Freedom Monument, which honours soldiers killed while fighting for independence between 1918-20, Mr Usakovs said.
Many visitors have been arrested and fined for relieving themselves on the 138ft-high monument, or climbing on it naked to pose for pictures.

Imagine the outrage here if a load of Eastern European piss heads came over to fcuk our women and wazz on the Cenotaph.

I've said it once and I'll say it again, we need to have a cull.

Too true SPB it's not the run, it's the runners.
The Baltic is now sooooooooooooooooooo 2006 anyway.

Get yourself to the seedy area of Tokyo, known as Roppongi. Obviously I've never been there myself, much preferring to visit temples, cheery blossom etc but a mate told me it's okay there for a beer and some socialising.
