It's not something you expect to hear in a London pub on a Friday night, inside a room packed with young locals and their beverages. But not every Friday night at The Water Poet on Folgate Street has the television tuned to a theatrical retelling of the industrial revolution, with mechanical smokestacks and dancing millionaires.
OK, the silence was broken when the dancing millionaires arrived. With a little laughter.
For those who couldn't get into the Summer Olympic Opening Ceremony, local pubs and bars offered a communal opportunity to celebrate the start of the games.
"It's mainly for the community. It's not about who's makin' money. All the people who didn't get a ticket have a place to enjoy it," said Josh Watts of The Book Club on Leonard Street.
Seemingly every street had a pub with patrons pouring out through the doors, either because the pub was too packed or so they could have a smoke while watching it through the window.
The Water Poet offered an open-air back room with a BBQ, along with no less than four other rooms with the ceremony on. The bar also had a unique drink promotion going:
All week we'll be replacing our usual fabulous ales with a seriously exciting selection of our favourite brewers' Olympic offerings, and YOU'LL have the final vote on who wins the gold — a coveted guest spot on our pumps during the Games. Will it be ADNAMS Flame Runner, TRUMAN'S Clean & Jerk or YOUNG's London Gold?
In the early running, Adnams had the lead.
Some revelers arrived in costumes — togas, drag — while others arrived in their nation's flags.
