It’s all well and good meeting people virtually in the Twittersphere, but it’s definitely a lot better meeting those people in person and having a chat over a few cocktails! A few days ago Jo and I were invited by Janet Mohapi-Banks to a drinks get together at Dirty Martini in Covent Garden. I met Janet at the Olivier Laudus Studio launch party a few months ago. She is an superb cake maker and provided the launch party with some wonderful miniature cakes. Not only an expert in cake making, Janet is also a great party organiser and everyone had a great time meeting new people and enjoying the half price cocktails. Many thanks to Janet for organising the drinks; it was great to meet some new people from the industry and to catch with familiar faces. I couldn’t resist bringing my camera along and thought it would be rude not to take a few snaps of the evening, so without further ado, here they are! I haven’t put names to everyone as I didn’t get a chance to say hello to everyone, so apologies in advance!
There was still time for some obligatory card swapping!
