If you're gonna be snowed in, might as well be at a pub

NOEL KING, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Noel King. If you're going to be snowed in somewhere, it might as well be at a pub. Over the weekend, a winter storm stranded dozens of people in northern England. They'd come for an Oasis tribute band playing at the Tan Hall Inn, which calls itself the U.K.'s highest pub. Heavy snowfall blocked the exits. The stranded people passed the time by playing games, watching movies and, of course, we would assume, drinking. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
