My mate and quasi father-in-law Darren turned 40 on the weekend and thank god the 40ths don’t roll around too often here. Kick off ( and kick out ) was at The Green Vespa where we all enjoyed free flowing Tiger Draft, a buffet and the weirdest birthday “cake” I have ever seen.Highlights included watching Darren’s partner Dee Dee pop out of a big wrapped present box and then the whole party getting thrown out by the psychopath owner. Moving on to The Pickled Parrot many more beers were consumed and then things got totally wild at Cheerleader bar where Zoe ( An Australian lass no less ) ended up purchasing a cheerleader uniform and performing a pole dance for everyone. Sunday saw massive hangovers but that did not stop a group from hitting the Champagne Buffet ( all you can drink Moet ) at the Intercontinental. I joined them for a Bloody Mary and then somehow we all ended up back at Cheerleader Bar via Freebird. This time it was Pommy lad Alex who donned the cheerleader uniform ( including lipstick ) and got up on the bar.
All in all one wild weekend…………..
