Note to self: Never ever drive to Brighton, especially on May bank holiday.
It was his idea, I agreed the night before after a couple of gins, some may say I was ‘vulnerable’ when making decision.
So there we were, bank holiday Saturday stuck in traffic, getting barked at by an evil dog..
Three hours later and a few strong words exchanged- we got to our destination.
We are here for two reasons; one to have a nice long weekend with the family. Two; Dad and Pam (Dad’s BAE) told me they had bought a church.
‘Not an actual church’ I thought.
Yes. An actual church.
I felt mixed emotions one this will make an epic Christmas venue, but then again I didn’t know what this meant for me in purgatory
God: “I know you went to Catholic school but you also got drunk with your Dad in my home”
Anyway after a morning of traffic, monster dogs and churches, It was time for a very craved lunch and some drink!
The Salt Room-
The food was incredible, It was a perfect places for a long lunch and cocktailS but their desert won the show both in taste
Now time to explore what Brighton has to offer… starting with a barber who sings from his shop…
I wanted to achieve the classic couple goal and walk home with a giant teddy that was won by Chris..
It was the standard tin cans and ball game, hit them all, win a prize…
Maybe he was nervous, maybe I put too much pressure on the guy-
either way he massively failed.
So we moved on to ticket winning machines- we were good at that.
Sunday session began at Tempest with a bloody mary of course….
Sweat test- 5/5 I was presented with a great bloody filled with horseradish, then was shown a tray of spice so I could create my flavour- Love it!
Taste: 4/5 good strong fresh bloody
Garnish: 3/5 Nice bit of celery and lemon but that was the limit
Glass 5/5 I love jars- great size!
Presentation 3/5 Horseradish makes it look something special, looked refreshing but maybe something extra would have done the trick.
Bonus point 1/5 – served to me by a hungover bartender overlooking the sea.
Overall- 21/25 Love having a DIY angle, great jar, lovely way to start a Sunday.
Now for lunch number two- Riddle & Finns
But it didn’t end there….
Chris got pooped on
Pam almost ran off with a drunk pirate
Chris took the pirate’s hat
Only In Brighton….
Note- the drive home was also awful.
