Writers’ Night Out

Posted May 27, 2019 into Food & Drink by John Birmingham

I was joined by a two fisted, hard hitting crew at the Duke last night for schnitzels and beer (and whiskey). I dips me lid to everyone who dropped in, especially to Bangar who gifted me a bottle of bathtub bourbon. I’m figuring on how to get that bad boy through the security checkpoint this afternoon.

It can be a lonesome trail, writing, and I appreciated the chance to catch up with a bunch of other scribblers outside the confines of a festival where you’re usually getting hauled from one event to the next by some fierce and no-shit-taking publicist.

Props to the Bourbon King, Steve, Dave, Nathan and Luke for the diverting evening.

The schnitty was excellent too.

A very enjoyable evening, it was interesting to have a look into a different work environment. Good luck at security!

There is always video conferences. I've done a few lately so have Zoom, Go To Meeting, and Skype.
Could be interesting, even if only if they are an hour.
