Spectacularly busy social life

Still not yet permitted to run due to probable torn meniscus, but I can still ride, and so I do.

Meeting friends for lunch is still one of life's great pleasures - especially when it's Calamity Sue at Rocksalt with bacon chocolate stout cheesecake (topped with candied bacon caramel) on the menu.

The emergence of a new brewery is always exciting news. We went along to the launch of Capital Brewing Company, which is a collaboration between the founders of Batlow Cider Co. and the owners of Honky Tonks and Hippo Co. bars. So far their beers are a version of a California Common (Coast Ale), a Pale Ale (Trail), and a Red IPA (Evil-Eyed Red). They're all pretty good (the Red IPA was my favourite), and they plan to use the locally-grown hops at Batlow, previously famed for its apples, so that's another industry we can all support.

On our long weekend, the boys experimented with brewing in the garage.

Meanwhile, the girls went to the National Gallery of Australia, where we experienced, art, culture, conversation and lunch - what a great day!

And then we reconvened to enjoy a well-deserved high tea at The Poggle & Bucket.
