Feast 1st Birthday at Guy's Quad

Friday 13th September - This was my third trip to a Feast food festival since starting The List, this time in honour of their 1st birthday. They decided to return to the Quadrangle at Guy's Hospital near London Bridge where they started their journey last year. It was a particularly rainy day when we went (understatement) but Lauren and I got there early and bagged some covered seating before the soggy crowds descended.  I will let the photos do most of the talking as the evening mainly involved eating, sitting, and occasionally  running outside.  Six Team List members braved the nasty conditions, and we ended up sitting next to some old school friends by chance as well.

Check On Egg Soldiers and Paesan Cannoli

We also had some delicious food from Halloumi and Smokin Hot Tamales that isn't pictured here.  The atmosphere was excellent despite the rain, and a DJ was on hand to keep spirits high.  If the weather had improved, I think we would have stayed a lot longer, but we eventually ran away to a pub as there were far too many people trying to keep dry in the same space.  Feast put on another good show, and I look forward to their (under cover) Winter installment.

In other news, I have recently given the blog a bit of an overhaul to make it more of a useful resource.  The main new thing is The List Map - there may be some teething problems with this so please let me know how you get on with it.  You can also now find lists of where I have been, and where I intend to go, as well as a Top 5s section for people that don't have time to read all of my posts!  Check the Team List Leaderboard if you think you are in the Top 20 contributors so far.  List Leader Natalie has opened up a whopping 50 point lead on 2nd placed Lauren, but it is all very close below them.
