Welcome to Bristol:
A Dinner Date with Residence (whilst dreaming of Peru)
Following an open invitation by Residence over the social networking wire ten members of Residence were privileged to be joined by 24 dinner guests. Each bringing their own interpretation of one of the 34 Bristols, and clutching a bottle of something. The evening involved music, poetry, games, stories, great food by Mama Llama and of course compering by Tom Marshman. Residence had four 34 Bristols tables cloths printed which will be making their way over to Bristol Peru to elgalpon espacio for another 34 Bristols meal. It was a fantastic evening collaborating with all of our dinner guests and we are excited to collaborate with elgalpon espacio next month, good luck to them for their meal we hope it was as fun as ours.
