I'm really looking forward to the opening of ZanZero down in Stockbridge on Monday.
A new Italian restaurant, bar & caffe for Edinburgh.
Brainchild of the brilliantly gifted Carina and Victor Contini, of Centotre fame, (Friday home of the Edinburgh Coffee Morn crew), I think ZZ is going to rock.
And I love the line and concept of; 'Slow Food Served Quickly.'
I will be interested to hear what Johnnie, our pancetta curing, Coffee morning regular makes of it, and might even suggest we temporarily relocate next weeks Friday coffee morn to ZZ to give it a whirl.
So, to those who didn't show, due to the excesses of Beer 2.01 last night, all I can say is: AMATEURS!!
Indeed most of this morns coffee morn in Centotre, revolved around an 'autopsy' of last night. (Including the perhaps ill-advised move on to Teuchters. Plus Iain and Mungo's even more ill-advised move on from Teuchters to a birthday party and on again to someone's works do!!)
Actually it was a cracking night, truth be told, and 'autopsy' is probably more appropriate an expression for today's no-shows. (Oh and before I forget, thanks ever so much to Whitespace for the generous provision of their boardroom, beer fridge, and their client Belhaven's donation of some truly excellent IPA, 80 bob and Fruit beer. Thanks too to Jamie for the tasty tapas, and Johnnie for not coming too early and eating all the food.)
There's some photobooth stuff on last night's attendees here on this flickr set.
(While Frasr+Ewan will be uploading their stills stuff during today here, and here. links to come)
Thanks to everyone who came, about 25 people all told, you can see who is who on the photobooth flickrset.
The other big discussion point today was Ian's suggestion that we invite a bunch of people from the client side to an enlarged coffee morn morning.
It'll give them a chance to chat informally, with the coffee morn regulars, about all the different facets, opinions, theories, experiences, case-studies, and bullshit connected with Web 2.0.
Please comment/give your views.ideas on this below, and as Pink, so eloquently said, let's get this party started.
In the spirit of Web 2.0, the Edinburgh Coffee Morners are having Beer 2.0 this Thursday 21st and next Thursday 28th.
And in the spirit of dodgy Web 2.0 logo's Jamie has, er, 'designed', the above.
(Naturally, in keeping with web 2.0's penchant for questionable spelling, we have dropped all vowels. A practice first adopted by us when we needed to differentiate Fraser Affiliateblog from Fraser Whitespace.)
