…propping up bar during end of Adamsdownhere website project celebrations.
Glasses went clink as the the Adamsdownhere team polished off the remaining launch wine and pretzels in website HQ, later migrating to the Vulcan, opposite the Atrium. The threatened pub; a historic jem surrounded by concrete and carpark, had been the subject of many an adamsdownhere.co.uk website story, so it felt appropriate that the night ended there.
Old cardiff photos, art deco fireplaces, dark wooden floors stained with years of fun and run by a salt of the earth landlady -where else but the Vulcan? That night was a particularly fine mix of locals in fancy dress celebrating a lady in canary yellow wedding dress’ birthday and a drama lecturer lovey loving the karaoke mic a little too much.
As taxi’s were called, the hardcore carried on and I went home. Goodbye Adamsdownhere, till next year – Hopes are, are that the project is to be revived with fresh ideas in the next academic year.
