We enjoyed a lively clients and friends drinks party at Hixter bankside on Tuesday evening. Aside of the great company, we were entertained with a jazzy musical collection with a Christmas twist from Alison Wheeler in her Trio format. Pop aficionados will know that Alison was lead vocalist of The Beautiful South from 2003 onwards. Mark Hix’s Hixter Bankside Bar was the funky venue that added to the lively atmosphere and it was great to see so many friends and clients attending – some for the first time, yes we do it every year!
In a fit of mad generosity we were presented by the management with a mega bottle of the red wine we had been drinking – Tonnix, this is a Portuguese blend from the Douro Valley using the same grapes found in Port. Out Melchior (18 litres or 24 normal bottles in one) is on display in our office – I wonder when we will have an excuse to drink it?
