Our residency at Pond Dalston is coming to a close soon. We’ve had a fantastic time working with the restaurant, and it’s been a great 6 months (including our first full December full of company events!).
We’re going to be creating the summer menu for Pond’s exciting new BBQ and poke dishes, and we’ve got some VERY EXCITING drinks on there (Strawberry Rumgroni Spritz?! HELLO), but we’ll be doing that as consultants, so you won’t get to see Felix’s smiling face behind the bar *that* often!
Meanwhile, we’re looking for some new opportunities, and we’ve also put our very first premises licence application together for Hackney council, so hopefully there might be some big news coming in around 28 days (but not zombie related).
In other news, Felix won the London heat of the Black Cow Gold Top vodka competition with the Tomato Cowsmopolitan; a mix of centrifuged tomato water, triple sec, lactic acid and the really rather lovely Black Cow vodka (made from milk!). Fingers crossed for the final, and hopefully you’ll have a chance to try the drink over the summer.
You might remember our ‘Underwood’, the bone marrow infused Sazerac raising money for Anthony Nolan. We raised about £200 with that, and now Felix is hoping to do Ride London to raise even more; you can sponsor him here.
Thanks, as always, to everyone who joined us at Pond Dalston for dinner, drinks and various shenanigans. It’s been brilliant fun!
