Nearly very old.....
Anyways.....what's been happening?
Last weekend, a couple of us had a pre-birthday night out, beginning with Joes in Chalk Farm. I really do like this place. It's a bit rough around the edges, they're not great at opening on time and you have a few randoms in there, but the music is good and the cocktails even better. Happy Hour is every day from 5 til 7 cocktail fans....go and fill your boots. To Soho next, for dinner at Pollo. I do wish they had never "refurbished" the place and got rid of the lovely plastic booth seats that had been there since way back when, but needs must I guess and nothing lasts forever, especially with Soho rents. Pollo is a favourite with a lot of people. Don't expect cordon bleu but do expect huge portions at low prices & wine in plastic cups. Cath's tip of the day: Don't order garlic bread as a starter unless you're not intending to eat anything else - it's the size of a large pizza, and more. The night ended in Trishas. The place was empty when we arrived which meant we got to have a nice chat with Trisha herself - a lady full of stories. A black & white 60s photo of her is on the wall & very lovely it is too. A typical night was had at Trishas really & tonight's characters included a pretty gay hungarian boy (whose "friend" proceeded to have a domestic with him as he was ignored for us, 3 ladies of a certain age, old enough to be his mother, and straight!), a man from the Cotswolds, wearing a mankini & on his stag night, and Paul who had been to our club the month previous. You never know who you're going to see in Trishas but if you're annoying and likely to offend me in any way whatsoever, please don't try and find it eh?
With that, I'm off to start the countdown to old age....see you on the other side x
