#FirstyFriday – it’s today!

I’m not quite sure how we’ve got through this week and got the place back together but about all that remains for me to do later is get the tables and chairs setup and figure out how to assemble a flat pack balloon storm trooper! It’s 4th May, May the 4th be with you, also…

This Saturday…

It’s kind of a quiz and not a quiz with some great prizes and some truly awful prizes but either way it’s going to be a lot of fun when grOmmet is with us Saturday evening! The bar is open 5 to 10pm and the shenanigans start about 7pm but you can turn up and…

Our #IWCBD event cancelled

Hey folks, Really sorry but I’ve decided to cancel our brew day tomorrow for the International Women’s Collaboration Brew Day. Brew days give me at least one hypo (low blood sugar with the diabetes), sometimes more. Some leave me in a pretty debilitating state needing someone else’s help. All of them leave me totally wiped…
