Friday, I was into work nice and early, not many others in until quite late. Went for lunch at the Café Royal where I ate sausages and mash. I had speciality sausages, very spicy, one quite hot.
I was not flying back this evening, as I was attending the departments Christmas lunch. Started out in the Globe with a few drinks. The place was absolutely crammed with people, and freezing cold because the doors had to be open, and the cold Northerly wind was blowing. Luckily this was resolved.
Arrived at the West end of George Street at eight for supper at Est Est Est. We were divided into two tables, had to wait quite a while for the wine, being severed by a rather dippy waitress who kept throwing her arms into the air. Not sure if this reaction wasn’t brought on by Andy. Later on we noticed people being served other peoples orders. At least they got the steak right, when I ordered my rare steak, it was only shown the pan for a few seconds.
Night still young we walked back up George Street to a nightclub called the Candy Bar. Here we talked and drank till throwing out time at 1.00. Now we were down to three, we went in search of some other clubs, most had queues, or charged, so off we went to Whistle Binkies. Christmas Friday night at Whistle Binkies costs money to enter and was packed. Not sure I want to repeat the experience.
Stayed till the band stopped playing, but I quickly ducked out leaving Ed and Mary, and was back into the hotel before 3.00
