Oliveto and a Lacklustre Pub Crawl

[Thursday 20th January]
Had lunch at Oliveto with Iain and Andrew which I thoroughly enjoyed as always - and it's always particularly nice when someone else proposes it (can't remember who it was in this instance, but it wasn't me).
In the evening I was invited out for a drink with a guy on my team who was entertaining a visitor to the office. Not one to turn down this sort of invitation I went along, but wasn't really in the mood for it, so didn't stay particularly late. We started by trying to go to the Cardinal, which is still closed for refurbishment. From there we tried the Cask and Glass which, unsurprisingly given how small it is, was packed - so we bravely tried to stand outside for a bit, before eventually deciding it was just too cold. So we went on from there to the nearby Colonies - which at least had somewhere to sit inside - but is a bit of a generic chain pub these days unfortunately.
