For Ladies Wot Brunch… At The Giant Robot

2 Sep

** Post 2 of my catch up series… Enjoy!**

June was a double whammy for the Ladies Wot Brunch, and following our trip to Madrid, we decided to end the month with one last catch up.  Saturday 30th was the date for our trip to Giant Robot, a quirky American Diner located in Clerkenwell.  There was plenty to catch up on and we love any excuse to get together really…!

Booking

Over the past 10 months, I had been responsible for finding and booking our Brunch/lunch/dinner venues.  It’s a lengthy process and so the creation of team of Vivacious Venue Researchers (VVRs) was a welcomed break!  Each month, one of our precious Ladies Wot Brunches will be responsible for organising the month’s event.  Rebecca “Bexabelle” kick started proceedings and chose an excellent spot in EC1.

Gist!

As we had a special guest in the form of Mr Pedro (one of our Lady Wot Brunch’s other half) join us, our conversation was not as explicit as usual!  But a few Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus discussions took place.  And so we tested several theories with our gentleman guest –

“Should women offer to pay on a date?”  Yes.

“Is it ok to assume the man foots the taxi bill?”  Uhmmm…

“How much should we expect of our prospective partner?”  A few expecations are required, but go with the flow and let it develop organically

“Is the 3 strikes rule acceptable?”  Depends on what the 3 strikes are!  But yes!

Needless to say that the conversation offered up a variety of responses.  If you’ve followed the Gist! section in previous blogs, let us know your responses on the above questions!  Knowledge is power and sharing is caring!

Food

Although the menu spanned across one single side of A4, it offered a respectable amount of variety.  Givent he sunshine, appetite for life and the fact that 90% of us made a mad dash to the restaurant to avoid being late, we were all hungry!  Brooklyn Brunch was the order of the day, with a veggie brunch and poached eggs also in the mix.  Each meal was wholesome, flavoursome and hit the spot niiiicely!

We all went goo goo gaga over the desserts and the selection, again although limited, was more than satisfactory.  If you have a sweet tooth, then you’ll love the cookie cake.  If you’re a pancake fiend, then you have to try the Robot’s take on the sweet griddled batter.   And well if you like cake, then tantalise the torta!  Easy peasy! 

Overall

The trip to Giant Robot was our last sneaky opportunity to catch up and break bread together.  A short and sweet catch up in Clerkenwell is what every girl needs at the end of the month!  Special thanks for Bexabelle for organising xxx
