Farewell Charlie!

Last night I joined some of my ex-work colleagues to farewell Charlie, who is headed home to Sydney! He’s been away for three years (I think?), and is feeling the call back to the home land. It was great to catch up with him, as well as lots of the other friendly faces that I used to work with!

One beer led to another, and before long we felt the call of ribs for dinner. We ended up going to the Chicago Rib Shack for what they claim to be “the best ribs in London”. Well, they certainly were ribs, but definitely not the best ribs I’ve ever had. Tip for next time (should we ever go again): stick with the Baby Backs; the St Louis ribs were nowhere near as good! Oh, and avoid the spicy wings; they aren’t kidding when they say, “They’re really hot”!!
