After Zurich I stayed in London for the weekend. On Saturday Mike and I headed over to Shoreditch to meet up with friends at Penkul and Banks for brunch that included unlimited processco and bloody marys – best brunch idea ever!
It was the first time I had seen everyone since getting my camera for my birthday, Laura decided to test it out for me…
We had some good conversations about beards whilst having lots of bubbly top ups.
I lost count of how many prossecos and bloody mary’s we had!
I am still getting used to being a ‘blogger’ and totally forgot to take a picture of any of the food, so you will just have to take my word for it that it was good! As were the bottomless drinks – which left a certain someone slightly tipsy, mentioning no names… Laura!!
Rawlins took a little fancy to the lady serving us and decided to write a note leaving his number and left it with our bill. We didn’t realise her friends were sat on the table next to us and when they heard about it they read the note and decided Rawlo needed to rewrite it and insisted a smiley face was added!
After the bar closed at Penkul we moved on to a few pubs, the boys wanted to watch the football so Laura and I headed elsewhere to escape and have a coffee.
Rat and I have birthdays that are close so we always do something joint to celebrate (the more celebrations the better!) and this year decided to go to Clutch for dinner. We met up with some more friends on the way and headed over to Hackney. Clutch is located in what looks like the middle of a housing estate, so feels quite strange sat outside a yellow building on fake grass drinking cocktails. Apparently Mary J Blige had been in earlier for lunch and the guys that had been before raved about it so I was excited to try the food. Of course more cocktails and bloody marys were needed first!
It didn’t disappoint, so much so I took two food photos then gave up to prioritise eating!
