Eesh, is January over already? It’s one of those months that nearly everyone seems to hate and for a chunk of the month I certainly wasn’t its biggest fan. But I was certainly cheered up by hearing all about a raft of new openings in the city, in fact there were so many I had to write two posts – and then another with a sneak peak of one of those.
For those whose New Year’s Resolution was all about making a change, one of those new venues was advertising a selection of job opportunities. Or maybe your resolution was more about learning to cook; if so then I headed off to a monthly Thai cooking class and got over my fear of deep-frying things!
I also managed to finally get round to blogging some of my December antics – including the inaugural UK Burger Battle which was a hell of a lot of fun. There was also more burger antics with the Meatshack’s Christmas pop up at Carter’s and another Moseley hot spot.
But I also managed to talk about some events that were happening this year, both whisky related; January’s Burn’s Night and the fantastic return of the Whisky Birmingham Festival. I also finally made it to Bar Opus thanks to Yelp Birmingham. And there were also a few surprises too, including a childhood favourite making an appearance at Cherry Reds and the most wonderful was a mention on Olive Magazine’s website.
And so it’s on to February! I’ve got a bunch of exciting blogposts – a trip to Lasan, Australia Day kangaroo burgers, a Valentine’s Day menu and much more. But before I sign off, I’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who shared, liked and commented on here, it really does mean a lot.
