April lard

Lard this month will, finally, be at Vero Gusto on Norfolk Row. I've booked us a table, and if you're a regular or I've already talked to you, you're on the list. If you're not a regular and you'd like to join us, let me know and I'll call them up and see if I can extend the booking.

Meet in the Head of Steam beforehand.

New year thanks + January lard

Thanks to everyone who came by mine for New Year's! It was fantastic.

Special thanks to pharrap, L and C (WANOLJ?) for stopping by early to chat and drop off an epic "fuck off 2016" cake with super-sparkly rocketscandles.

I had a great time, and I've nearly finished the tidying now!

In other news, for those whose diet hasn't quite started yet, January lard will be at The Florentine Pub on Tapton Park Road, which was recently recommended to me. (Though I can't remember who by - I might have been drinking at the time.) Meet there from 7 for drinks, or at 7:30 for food.

Xmas lard, new year and birthday

First, we - that is, me, RJ, GT, RC & SC, MW, JH and EC & KC & EC & TC - are all booked in to Vito's for Wednesday the 7th of December, in my name. That's not this coming Wednesday (Nov 30th) but the one after. Meet in The Rose House beforehand for a drink.

Second, I'll be hosting a new year gathering at mine for anyone... who I know. And your +1s (or +2s, if that's you) or family members. At which I will also be celebrating my birthday, becuase it's close enough that it makes sense to do so.

Um, that's it for now. If I'm lucky, I might get around to finishing one or more of the 4 or so blog posts I have in various stages of progress, some time before then. But maybe not. :-/

See you soon.

October lard, take 2

Due to me not remembering (until later prompted, then it all came back. Wake up, McTanys!) that we'd discussed putting lard off for a week this month, few enough people turned up last week that those of us that did decided to wait and give all the regulars the chance to sample Eritrean food together.

So, this week, at Frehiwet Habesha on Exchange Street, meeting in the Old Queens Head beforehand.

October lard

This month, we'll be trying Frehiwet Habesha on Exchange Street.

I'm not sure where the nearest best pub is. My guess is The Old Queens Head at the Bus Station. Are people OK to meet there?

September Lard

Thanks to bonedancer we will be at Red's True BBQ this week. However, it is a reservation, so if you're not a regular and want to tag along but haven't let him know yet, do so so he can update the booking.

Meet in the Nursery Tavern beforehand.
