'Jenn, do you want to come out and play in Nottingham, try some delicious food and drinks, meet some like-minded lovely ladies (and gent! :)) but we can't tell you where we're taking you?'


That's precisely what happened the other week when the lovely ladies from It's In Nottingham and Gemini PR & Marketing contacted inviting me to the aptly named 'Secret Dinner Club', I mean, would you say no? Didn't think so.

Ok, so it's no secret that I blummin' love Nottingham! I've lived here since I was 11 and despite living in 8+ other cities in-between then and now, Nottingham's my home and it will always be somewhere I'm proud to say I'm from, I'm always inviting pals over for the weekend to show it off!

So to cut a beautiful evening short, as the images pretty much tell the story, we ate, we drank, we giggled and we of course, swapped Instagram accounts.

I had the pleasure of being accompanied by my pal Sarah-Jayne from Bella Coco, well I say pleasure,  I was on edge all night as she nearly had a baby, but you know, that's a story for another day ;) (It was a pleasure really haha)

Starting in Boilermaker, where they'd kindly made us a bespoke cocktail with all things Notts ingredients, oh and it was called the Left Lion - if you know, you know. If you haven't been to the Boilermaker, it's definitely worth the visit, even if it's just for the novelty factor alone - I won't say more than that, but just FYI, you don't need to take your dirty laundry.

This was followed by a visit to Curious Tavern, I love this little gem, although for those of you that remember Tantra (I'm older than most who were there, and sadly, they hadn't witnessed the bar that had beds, 'Beds?!' yes beds, in it.) it has a similar effect - because it's so dark you lose serious track of time and end up leaving, thinking it's time for a kebab, and actually, corrie's only just started! So we nailed some more cocktails (called the selfie cocktail, which was V. appropriate for the night!) and some well nice pie and mash...

.. and the next place was where I found my calling, I'm no stranger to Homemade Cafe but it's the first time that I've sampled basically ALL of their cakes, I normally go in there for a fish finger sandwich (so good!) and then too full to try their puddings, but wow, I went for it... the pics pretty much tell the rest of the story on this one, go in and ask for the After Eight cake, I mean, I don't actually know if that's what it was called, but it was a cake, and it tasted like After Eight, so I used my ridiculously vivid imagination with that one...

Said 'After Eight Cake'

So there you go, a right little treat of a night thanks to Kelly and Lucy, thanks girls you absolute gems! and of course, thank you to the venues that invited us along for the evening..

Oh and not that I was asked to say this, I swear, but if you live in Nottingham and don't already follow It's In Nottingham, then honestly, do it, I actually think I'm quite good at keeping up-to date with what's going on in Notts, but one visit to their site / social media and I soon realise that I don't know 'alf of it! Excuse the really bad sentence coming up, but if it's in Nottingham (get it?!), then they know about, so it's worth giving them a follow.
