Easterly Pub Meet

Thursday 2nd September 2010

Craigmillar Park Golf Club
1 Observatory Road

For our bi-monthly easterly pub meet we returned to the Craigmillar Golf Club in Edinburgh, and another themed evening. But what would it be this time?

Starting way back in January, the chef and Gordon delighted us all with the first Italian theme night. In March it was an exotic Indian night, in May we sampled the delights of Spain and in July it was the turn of Morocco. Having really enjoyed the excellent food on all four of these evenings our expectations were high for yet another culinary delight when the Scottish theme was announced.


Good old Fish n Chips
Followed by
Banoffee Pie & Ice Cream

Where has the summer gone? September already and our fifth and final visit to Craigmillar for 2010.

These pub meets have proved to be very popular, this one was no exception with 14 members out to enjoy the social evening. A warm welcome was given to Jean and Jim who have recently become MX-5 owners, after browsing our website they decided to pop along and find out what weíre all about.

The evening started in an unusual way, although we didnít expect a select few of our members to hold a funny hat competition, Gordon certainly didnít! Following introductions, and a few refreshments accompanied by the usual banter, it was time for dinner.  A Scottish favourite, Fish n' Chips, our plates arrived fully laden with tasty chips, peas and delicious huge crispy battered fish hanging over the edges of the plates. You can travel all over the world but you still canít beat it.

For the remainder of the evening we all relaxed in the comfy sofas and talked not just about past and future club events but all manner of subjects. With a budding vet in our presences the vision of the latex glove and KY jelly will stay with me for some time to come. Yet another excellent MX-5 Scotland evening at Craigmillar thanks to all present.

To Jean and Jim, it was great having you there. We hope you both enjoyed the evening.

To Gordon and all the Staff at the golf club, once again we canít thank you enough for all the hard work and thought that you put into these evenings. It is very much appreciated.
