On Saturday, August 19th, some of The Players met up for our summer meal at Lollo Rosso in Morpeth. The food was very good, although we had to wait for a time as the restaurant was very busy. This atmosphere in this place was certainly buzzing. The plan was to move around the table intermittently so we could engage in conversation with other members in the group. A good plan, but not feasible. You see, a solo singer appeared and began to croon his way through a selection of songs. His microphone and speaker amplified his voice and the music so loudly, that it became difficult to engage in meaningful conversation around the table. Not to worry though chums, our Christmas meal at The Sun Inn could be the place whereby we can freely move around the table chatting to one another. We can check out beforehand if they’d hired a Xmas singer and maybe someone can invite him ( or her ) outside and hit them on the head with a bottle? Just stun them of course, we don’t want to destroy their Christmas after all…….
Anyway, apart from my rant about Karaoke singers spoiling the ambience of the evening, it was a good night. Once again it was well supported by members. Thank you to Nicola and Grace who experienced their first night out with the gang. We hope it hasn’t put you off?
Somewhere, or somehow in the evening, it was suggested I hold a Hallowe’en party at my house in Prudhoe. A mini bus was mentioned amongst other things! Well, I’m not one to shun an opportunity for a party bash, so if any of you want to come along then let me know and you will be very welcome.
Watch out for the email regarding the Christmas meal and the date.
