As I mentioned in my "Birthday" post I was out on Friday night.
I sit very near the HR team in work so I have become very friendly with the two HR ladies. A couple of weeks ago we had said we must do a few drinks after work so we put Friday in as a date.
We finished work at 5.30 and went across the road to our "local" pub Scruffy Murphy's.
I was unsure about Scruffy's when I first moved to Mount Street, I missed my old local haunts down near Abbey Street, but I have grown to like it a little more.
From Scruffys we moved on to a beautiful little small restaurant on Dawson Street "Harry's Cafe" which has a very good early bird menu/deal - €60 for 2 people, starter, main & bottle of wine.
I had Chicken Liver Pate and Melba toast to start.
And had Roast Chicken breast with lemon & thyme mash for my main.
We shared a chocolate & hazelnut torte for dessert.
After dinner we went down to The Bailey for just one drink to finish off the night.
So it was an early night - we all made our last bus/train. However we have decided on our next night we are going to be crazy and stay out later - we are going to do Karaoke!!!!!
*As an aside, we were talking about working in my company years and years ago (the company has been around for over 70 years) and how back in the 1970/1980's the girls wore office coats. We were laughing how HR was called Personnel so that is what I am going to call the two ladies (the Personnel Department) from now on in the office for a joke :-)
