The Weekend Edition

In the week that saw the clocks go back (well in the UK at least), the sugar tax has been raging & I’ve been read all about this, on social media:

Sauce Communications sent out their monthly round up, with this gem catching my eye:

Booking lines are now open, call 020 3141 6016 or email


And finally, big congratulations to Matt & Cat on the Isle of Wight. They’re celebrating ten years of reviewing restaurants on the island, & I have to say, are my go to people in that part of the world.

To mark this monumental achievement, they’re having a birthday party bash:

  • Friday 20th November 7pm til late
  • Blacksheep Bar private lounge, Union Street, Ryde
  • £25 includes welcome cocktail and extended ‘Shut up and feed me’ menu
  • Full veggie option
  • Guests will be offered complimentary membership of the Salon de Grills private club.

Anon on Twitter

Cake for Anonymous 😀
