Just recently we had a bit of swift manoeuvring to do as our regular venue evaporated in a puff of, what? no!? don’t know what your talking about! Needless to say there was no way I was going to let our guests down especially since they had supported us on numerous occasions before. So I went on a venue hunt!! (I’ve got nothing else to do with my time so it was the perfect way to burn some of it!!!)
After a bit of asking around, a couple of venue hunting cycling missions, head scratching and the like Grubclub came to the rescue. Quick aside here Grubclub has all sort of events just like ours listed on their website!! I recommend taking a look!
They introduced us to a lovely couple of girls who run a venue in Queenspark called Nineteen:
|Gladioli flowers of the gladiators!|
How well dressed it that!!? : )
After being shown around and getting a feel for the place, (I was made very welcome) I passed on the good news to the birthday boy and got down to designing a 6 course snork-up suitable for the venue and our guests!!
One of the great thing about Nineteen is that it has a bar/restaurant next door, Hugo’s - perfect for a couple of pre-dinner pints.
I reckon it was a cracking party . . .
