After haranguing a friend who considers herself a staunch Remainer for still frequenting Wetherspoons, it occurred to me how difficult it is to go about everyday modern life without accidentally lining the pockets of some utter bastard.
Happy New Year, one and all! In an effort to amuse myself and pass the time until society allows me to be fun again February, I’ve compiled my thoughts on 2019’s food and restaurant trends and non-trends. I’m absolutely in no way qualified for this except that I have eyes and also I eat a […]
