About 2 weeks ago I got a little email in my inbox to come along to CTR tonight, to try some food and drinks from the new menu….how could I refuse? plus this place was on my list for a while and now I would finally visit.

On entering you are instantly hit with a new hip pub/restaurant, and looking around you will see a lot of very cool artwork all over the walls (see more on my instagram)

CTR do a very wide range of craft beers, but the menu is always changing so you are sure to find many new ones you will love.

Tonight I was invited to come along as try some samples from a new menu, and also to try some beers…how could anyone say no to that plus as I said its been on my list to try so a win win for me.

The Food…

If you have never been here before, the food here at Crossing the Rubicon is tapas style. My best advice and the staffs is to order 2 or 3 dishes, as one wont be enough….unless your not mega hungry.

Due to the amount of samples and all the descriptions, I have attached the menu so you can see what we got.

From the big long list, it was served as a big platter on the table. I was sitting with 4 other people, so we all got to try one item each.

The only one I didn’t try was the lettuce one, as it contained nuts which I am allergic to.

The rest was very nice, my favourite from the above was the Mumbi Sandwich (3rd from the left). This I would have loved to have on a bigger scale, maybe on my next visit.

Once we all went through the above platter, we were handed out some more dishes. I think I forgot to take a few photos, due to just enjoying eating….bad food blogger I know :p

The above is the Masala Chips and the Chana Chat Taco, both of these were very nice and would have again.

One of the last samples was the The Rubicon Frankie, unfortunately no photo again (shame on me) but it was basically a burrito filling in a nice wrap. This was very good, so the Mumbi Sandwich and the Frankie I cant wait to try again but the full sized dishes.

The beers…

I tried these beers tonight one was very light (left) and the other a little heavier. For me I found it very hard to pick a favourite, but if I really had to I would have to choose the Magic Porridge Oatmeal Stout.

Overall

Overall the night went very well, there was a good turn out and everyone seemed to enjoy the food.

The food for me was very nice, and I found my two favourite which I aim to have again next visit.

I would like to thank Crossing the Rubicon for my invite, and give a big hi to Max who tonight gave me very lovely comments and put a massive smile on my face.

See you soon!

I got a ding in my inbox from The Rotunda, inviting me to come see tonights show.

I have never been to any comedy club so I didn’t know what to expect, and accepted their invitation.

The location that the comedy club is in, I have been to a few times as there is a Mediterranean restaurant called Mezze inside. If you haven’t been here yet please to take a look at my reviews, and check it out you won’t be disappointed.

Going by what I heard tonight, this is a very new comedy club so I hope going by tonights success its open for a long time.

The Acts…

There was only one act I knew off, and seen once before his name was Colin Cloud. The others I had never heard of, but I do have to say I enjoyed all their acts.

One act that stood out was the very last guy, he played the guitar and sung his jokes…I am trying to find out his name as I would like to see him again and once I do I will update it here.

** Update 09/12/2017 : The guy is called Harry Garrison, and I have now followed his facebook page here

Its very good value for money as the whole show lasted for over 2hours, and everyone was laughing from start to finish.

Overall

Firstly a big thank you to the Rotunda for my invite, I had a really good night,  and laughed none stop from start to end.

I will be going back to see more acts, as my first comedy club experience was very good
