You know, JoJo and LiLi may never have stumbled across Orient East if it weren't for the extended invitation to join them for an eight course beer degustation - and how grateful they were for having found them this way.
It’s a shame that some of these outings take place on a weeknight after work. Sometimes, we’re rushed for time and have to compromise between ghetto-corporate or confused-librarian outfits. On other days, we’ve made poor lunch decisions that have seen us slumped on our chairs up until 4pm, wrecking our chances of truly appreciating the finer details at dinner.
Thankfully, today was neither, and on a night like this - a five course cocktail degustation was bang on what we needed after a hard day at the office; especially for Jo. She'd just come back from a too-short vacation in the Philippines and was going through some serious travel withdrawals.
