I'm not too into social clubs, what's this one like? Is it the sort of place where they have a rule for everything, enforced by over officious nobody's on the committee. The type that have never had any power at all in their life and now find themselves in a position of authority?

If you win the Bingo, are you allowed to shout "house" like you are absolutely delighted, or are you expected to snivel "right" in a voice that sounds like you have stood on some dog pooh?

What's the entertainment like? Do you get genuine live bands, or some fat turd from West Lothian or Lanarkshire, singing along to tapes of songs like "Penny Arcade"?

Finally, if you are a stranger, does the place fall silent, as everyone stares at you when you walk in, or do people just get on with enjoying their night out and continue in happy conversation?

Sorry to ask these questions, it's just that I've had a few bad experiences at other clubs. Needless to say I'll never sit in a regular's seat again.

Sounds like my kind of place. One last question, does it have a wee room at the back where private members can be entertained by swarthy, buxom hostesses for five dollah?

I'm afraid not - there is a pool table in that wee room at the back though :greengrin

That doesn't explain that group of Ladyboys I saw leaving Sunnyside at 1:30 the other morning then. Perhaps they like Bingo and pool?

Not at all, it's a very friendly and welcoming club to members and visitors alike


If you win the Bingo, are you allowed to shout "house" like you are absolutely delighted, or are you expected to snivel "right" in a voice that sounds like you have stood on some dog pooh?

Of course you can shout "house", just watch out for the regular players who will take you outside and empty your pockets of more than the 2 you've just won.


What's the entertainment like? Do you get genuine live bands, or some fat turd from West Lothian or Lanarkshire, singing along to tapes of songs like "Penny Arcade"?

Saturday's alternate between Live Bands and Disco's. We splash the cash on the first Saturday of every month for a bit more quality see http://www.hibsclub.co.uk for more details


Finally, if you are a stranger, does the place fall silent, as everyone stares at you when you walk in, or do people just get on with enjoying their night out and continue in happy conversation?

No one falls silent or stares at you, they just continue slaughtering Hearts, or Hibs for that matter, and since Steve-O no longer works their you're sure of a warm welcome from the bar staff:wink:

If I go, I'll definately get in. I remember Frank as a schoolboy ,was it Heriot's or Edinburgh Academmy? I remember him having the blue blazer like mine of Leith Academy.

I bumped into him 5 years ago after 34 years no seen( I wasnay at any games as I brought up my kids) and we recognised each other immediatelly.He is a true Hibbee . He knows me a Jakki:thumbsup:

I knew her as Mrs Mac with her sheepskin coat and hat and her pal who I cannot remember her name similarly dressed. I also spoke to Mrs Mac at the games in the 60's.

I heard that she had an accident but still going strong supporting the Hibees.

Long reign Mrs Mac, our Legend supporter :thumbsup:

I was at Ibrox when back on holiday a few years ago..Maude was there next to me and BIg Wattie too.

I think maude was 91 at the time.

Unfortuantely the young guys in front of Maude kept jumping up and down and Maude had difficulty seeing all of Ivan's 3 goals.

Big Frank Dougan got me a ticket and took me through in his Hibsmobile..after letting me kip in his loungeroom for three days prior to the game.

A true Hibby through and through..winnae hear a bad word said against him....

Just to let you know I was speaking to Maude last week and although she cant get about as much as she would like to, she is still going strong at the age of nearly 93yrs!

Age has done nothing to dull her sharp tongue or her quick thinking, she is as bright as a new penny and tries to get along to as many games as she can.
If not she has her Sky TV and ESPN to keep up to date with her beloved Hibees.

She is really an inspiration to us all and loves to talk:blah: about the Hibs and her tales about following them in the past. All good stuff and it makes an interesting visit well worth the while!

God bless her. xx
