Tuesday January 4th we are booked in to Freestyle Tout at West End, across the road from our usual venue. Booking is for 7pm under the name ‘knitters’ for 8-10 people :)
3 Monkeys is closed for the next 3 Tuesdays, so we have been forced to change venues. Tuesday the 28th we will be at the Pancake Manor on Charlotte St.
See you there!
The 3 Monkeys Cafe has been a fantastic host for stitch and bitch for over 5 years, consistently serving great meals (you can never go wrong with the haloumi platter), nommy cake (especially green tea cake) and ridiculously oversized coffees.
Another constant, thanks to the international flavour of the waiting staff, has been the colourful, grammatically and consonant-ly challenged spelling on the reserved post it on our table. Usually we’re missing at least one t, admittedly there are several in stitch and bitch. But this one had to be documented as definitely the worst spelling we’ve ever encountered
Interestingly, the next week the post it was letter perfect, which we think was also a first, but I didn’t have the camera, and I think you can all imaginate what that would look like without too much trouble.
A few more pics of our glorious Christmas party.
This whole event is an ode to Miss Vicki’s devotion to excellence in hostessing, and everyone’s enthusiasm for crafting beautiful gifts and food and the pleasure of giving. Especially giving to someone who really appreciates more than anything the effort and love that went into the crafting. It’s what Christmas should be. The table was fully dressed
A tree stuffed with swap presents
The turkey was huge! and cooked to perfection
The devil is the the details
And good times with good friends old and new
Final words- if you’re making your own christmas crackers, they will take waaay longer than you expected
Merry Christmas! Can’t wait till next year!
We had our annual Christmas in July feast and swap last night.
Here are a few photos of the fun and frivolity. And Turkey.
