Citroen Drinks Bar

citreon barThe other week while visiting friends in Stamford Lincolnshire we went for an afternoon drink at the Crown Hotel, the weather was great so we sat out. While there we noticed an old Citroen van right by the patio eating and drinking area. After a short time a member of staff opened the side and there appeared a bar.There did not look like there was much head room for the bar man to serve but we thought it was very cool and made good use of an old Citroen van.Here is a photo of the Citroen Van Bar.

Excellent Vintage – We think not!

Sunday, September 5th, 2010

Recently we had a cocktail party and had to get the drinks in, we needed some fizz and one bottle we purchased was a Gran Tradicion Cava 2006 from the Co-op supermarket. It was cheap at approx ¬£5.99, but it did say on it ‘Excellent Vintage’, this should have sounded the alarm bells because good wine never boasts, however we thought it cannot be that bad, but it was. They also sell a cheaper version of this Cava, which we will not be buying. I think the lesson here is if it says ‘Excellent’ on the bottle then stay well clear.
