So there were a lot of Christmas parties and gatherings this year, but I’ll only feature two pubs I went to and add some pictures of food from the gatherings.
First party was with my current team at the beginning of the month, which started at 6.30pm in The Camberwell Arms… I think I had a bit to drink that night. Well pampered by this team. The food was different to last year’s! Yay! I would say an improvement. ^_^ I especially liked the fried (tempura looking) brussel sprouts and the surprise of some horseradish in between. Phew, hot stuff! Probably not best suited for vegetarians or vegans. Miss Vegan was not impressed so I told her to buy some other food beforehand… she came late to the party!
It’s too bad they didn’t cater for more (well my team should have asked for food for up to 60 people!).

The very last office party (which I gate crashed) was with the very first team I worked with at my current work place. I’m still in contact with the old staff, and Mrs Hen was there too… so I was there to enjoy seeing my old team get all drunk, :p Wouldn’t go back to my old team though… not in a million years!! Tough working with them… Anyway, I kind of gate crashed this party at The Grand Union but technically I was invited. Heheheh, This is an American style bar/pub in an old Victorian pub… It’s a really well hidden place in Camberwell, and you wouldn’t think that such a nice pub existed in the area! Wow!! The food felt decent, fit for vegans, vegetarians and meat eaters,
An exhilarating party meeting some old team members, and even Mrs Hen got drunk. Heheheh,
