There was a massive turnout, I forgot to do a head count but we had commandeered 4 tables in the end. While I was a little disappointed the LAA had changed since my last visit, throwing away the fine little menu with tofu burgers and the like, replacing them with a selection of help yourself dishes – the vegan delights were deliciously warming. Conversation flowed easily and whenever I looked down the table I saw smiles and animated discussions.
Once the plates had been finished a dozen or more of us headed over to Handsome Steve’s for some fortification to ward of the chills. The amicable Steve provided much needed warmth and beverages, that kept some diehards entertained for a further couple of hours.
Good to see you all. Hope that it has broken down a few barriers and created further connections in this corner of the blogging world.
