Britain's Ready to pAArty After Royal Wedding

We just might have to make the trip across the pond for the nuptials. Even if you aren't invited to the wedding, it sounds like England will be the place to be come April.

According to Britain's government, pubs all around the country are being given permission to keep their doors open late on the night of Prince William and Kate Middleton's royal wedding.

As the wedding is being deemed "an occasion for national celebration," government officials want the entire country to revel in the happy day. So, all licensed establishments will be allowed to serve customers until 1 a.m. when William and Kate become man and wife.

Hmm. There's going to be a lot of rowdy rejoicing April 29th. Brits already have the whole day off for the occasion and now they're going to be able to drink the night away!

What fun! We're booking our ticket now! Sign us up for this pAArty!

We love the concept, but we'd rethink the partnership.

Sources say that David Beckham is looking to open a pub in El Lay called The Queen Vic.

Aww! It's named after his wifey! Cute!

The ideas for the place sound really cool and authentic to his homeland of bloody old England, but insiders say that David is looking to open the pub with Gordon Ramsay!

Um, how about no Becks? Have you not been reading our site?! The man owes money every which way and most of his restaurants have CLOSED! He's probably going to swindle you big time!

How about you just keep this venture in the family? It maybe fiscally safer that way. Just saying.

Gordon Ramsay's Pub Folds! Thanks Bankruptcy!

Filed under: Gordon Ramsay

Hell's Kitchen host and chef Gordon Ramsay has closed one of his pubs in London due to bankruptcy.

Gordon is having his share of bad money issues as of late and his foodie empire is getting hit the hardest. Sources explain that Gordon had managed to keep debt-collectors away by filtering $8 million into the business to keep it afloat. But there is only so much he can do. With the recession, the pub just wasn't pulling it's own weight.

So he closed up shop. A spokesperson for Ramsay says:

"The Devonshire pub has not been meeting our expectations for a while and we have taken the decision to close it while we consider future plans."

One down. How many more of his places will go under, we wonder?

It's a tough break, but thankfully, he has his reality TV career to keep him warm rich!

Drinks For Everyone - On GaGa!

Filed under: AnglophiliaLady GaGa

Some English locals were stunned when Lady Gaga walked in to a local pub in Birmingham and knocked back a few drinks.

The Prince Of Wales regulars were eventually won over when she decided to pick up the tab for everyone in the bar, as well as leaving a hefty tip, about "a few hundred pounds."

Dressed in black leather and shades, Gagaloo drank whiskey and Diet Cokes while penning lyrics and tweeting.

While sitting at the bar, she tweeted:

In a pub in England ruining bar napkins with lyrics and memories. Dreams are never weak like we are, drunk or sober.

One of the patrons said:

"Everyone was stunned when this striking blonde came in. Most of the blokes had no idea who she was at first. She sat at the bar with a pal for two hours, downing spirits and scribbling notes. She told the locals how much she was enjoying having a drink on a day off because she can't handle drinking before a show. She signed autographs for staff and left a huge tip - a few hundred pounds."

Way to make your UK fans happy, GaGa!
