2018 marks the 5th year that I’ve been living in Liverpool (sorry Mum) and in that time I’ve developed a penchant for red salt on my chips, discovered that tequila actually can taste alright when it’s blackcurrant flavoured and realised that when your boyfriend is a Liverpool fan you really do just have to accept that you’ll always be one place behind his beloved reds. That being said there is still a whole host of things on my Liverpool to-do list. Instead of boring you with my new years resolutions (start the gym blah blah blah) I thought I’d share my New Years Liverutions (??) e.g. the things I want to tick of my Liverpool bucket list this year. So without further ado….
Sometimes you go out for a meal and you find yourself waiting for the dessert menu to be rolled out. You make your way through a perfectly tasty starter and main meal but you know full well it’s the pudding that’s gunna seal the deal. And then all of a sudden your dining partner drops the “I couldn’t eat another thing” line and the prospect of something gooey, sweet and chocolatey is looking less and less likely. Sound familiar? If so then the new Heavenly Desserts cafe/restaurant in Liverpool ONE could be the perfect location. After all, there’s no way of missing out on your sweet treat if you’re at a place solely dedicated to desserts is there?
As the nights draw in and you start to spend more time in your PJs drinking tea than, well, pretty much anything else, you know that soon winter festivities will be upon you. Sparkling dresses and prosecco with tiny entrėes, proper feasts with your whole family and festive fun with your friends will soon fill your calendar.
So you’d better get prepared!
When October hits, my inner Kevin McCallister is itching to get out and spread some Christmas joy. For most people though, it’s still a bit too soon to be uttering words such as tinsel and mince pie. Therefore I tend to put all of my festive fever into celebrating halloween with a bang. Luckily for me (and you) Liverpool has plenty of spooky shenanigans to keep you occupied over the most chilling celebration of all.
Sometimes even adopted scousers like to venture out of Liverpool. Today my fellow Liverpool-lover and Wirral-dweller Jack from My Take On Life gives you his top places to eat if you decide to venture over the water….
When I think about Concert Square on a Monday night I tend to think of my student days en route to the Raz and not an evening spent warding of zombies and underwater jellyfish but that’s exactly how you can spend a Monday night at The Boston Pool Loft.
A couple of weeks ago I went along to one of my favourite Liverpool haunts, The Clubhouse, for an evening of cocktail shaking and sipping with the guys from Aperol. In case you haven’t yet figured it out I’m quite the cocktail fan and the idea of spending a post-work summers evening sipping 2017’s coolest cocktail wasn’t met with too much resistance.
