Jim and I, Jim more than me, are frequent visitors to the local for drinks, random conversation and, more often than not, dinner. Well we kind of mixed things up a little last night by going out to town with a few folks from the pub. The occasion was Karen's birthday, and we met her and Denis at the local. We headed into town to the Porterhouse and had a few drinks while we waited for Graham and Hillary (also from the local).
Our original plan of going to a Mongolian restaurant was scuppered as the Mongolian restaurant had disappeared so we took a walk up to Soho and had dinner at CÔTE. It was good, I had rilettes to start and steak hache for main followed up by chocolate fondant for dessert. Yum.
Now Londoners out there... do you consider a walk from Covent Garden to Soho to be a great distance? I don't, but some of our party were making out it was the furthest they've walked in a long time. :s That sort of distance is nothing... I sometimes walk from Canary Wharf into Greenwich just for a change so I really don't understand people who think a 5 minute walk is a long distance.
Jim managed to get some of his American colleagues to get me some Reese's cups. Not the big ones they now sell in shops all over the place but the small ones that I so crave. Mmm... thank you Jim... P.S. Jim should you be reading this later today I apologise for eating all of them as that is what I intend to do right now...
