Round Up

Wed 29 Aug 2007

It's been quite a while since a round up, but not a huge amount of ground to cover.

The Hard Rock Café on Albion Street has closed down and a new Itailan, Felicini, is to be opening soon.

Another new opening is the much awaited Brasserie Blanc, taking over Leodis's old space. The opening is slated for 'early September' so it can't be far off ...

Entries for the Best Birthday Banger have to be in by mid-September, so if you're a sausage maker you need to get your skates on!

The other week I mentioned my Le Creuset marmitout. I've now read that these have actually been discontinued by Le Creuset! Apparently they are still available at outlets (and probably on ebay!), so it might be an opportune time to bag a bargain.

And finally, the other night I opened a bottle of d'Arenberg Footbolt Shiraz (Oddbins - £9.49) - it was absolutely fantastic and went an absolute treat with our sausages (I wonder why we were cooking those!). You can still find some other champagne related bargains at Hoults. They have generous savings on bubbles such as Krug, Dom Pérignon and Gosset - but only til the end of the month, so be quick!
