    A poker game has been planned for tomorow. The game was meant to take place at someones house but this is now not possible. Five-ten of us are now wondering what to do, one option is to walk into a pub and start playing... Would this be seen as acceptable? Also what other locations could be used? Please help!

    Pubs out of the question unless you are friendly with the manager/bar staff and a local. Im not sure for other locations apart from someone else's house.

    You can't use someone else's house?
    The thing is if you do it in a pub or somewhere public there is a chance others might try to get involved, not great if you want to keep it private.

    The pub industry is too desperate atm to be abiding by those rules
