Golden Monkey

Last night's bar for Project 2009 was totally rigged, with my plans to go to the cricket and Dan being away. We picked a bar we had both been to from the pack, in a big FOMO ('Fraid Of Missing Out) move. But alas, my cricket plans were pulled by the lads at work, and out drinking I was instead.

The Golden Monkey was the draw card, but as my crew from work left the office, we stopped again at ...if next door. Thirsty work getting the lift downstairs!! Happy hour here was the drawcard, and there was even a free round of pina colada shots passed around by the bar lads. We think one of them has a crush on Mary!

Moving on from Queen Street, we walked down and along Hardware Lane to The Golden Monkey. Having been there before, I still couldn't picture walking in there...and the reason for this is that it is like a secret den downstairs, with only a symbol out the front of a restaurant to guide you.

Jo, Bec, Alissa, Michelle and Michelle, Mary, Kylee and I found a table section and ordered drinks, and caught up with Jenny's crew in another section. The bar is dark, with Asian decor, and many sectioned off table areas. Great for a group, but again not a mingling bar atmosphere.

Jo and I headed to Swantson Street later for something to eat, at our old faithful, fast and cheap Dumpling Plus.
