Cheap Dates in Brighton | 2-4-1 Burgers at Little Blue Smokehouse @ The Southover

Update: heartbreakingly, Little Blue Smoke are no longer operating at The Southover, so this deal is no longer applicable – you can find them at Hare and Hounds! Brighton is fast becoming London 2.0, whether we like it or not. That means that date night is getting more expenive by the day, and it can be tricky to keep up. I’m all about a bargain, and I’ve made it my mission to find you the best deals in town so that you don’t have to bankrupt yourself to hang with your other half. The only rule is that the date can only cost a maximum of £10 per head, the rest is all to play for. I’ve featured Little Blue Smokehouse previously on this here corner of the internet back when I was all excited over their PB&J fries at their Seven Stars residence. They’re now a permanent fixture at The Southover, which is not quite as accessible if you’re coming in from out of town (it’s up in the residential area of Hanover) but …

Happy Sunday

I regret to inform you that you’re not getting the best of me today. I’m writing this, straight off the back of a 5 hour studying session, while my roast cooks. My brain is nothing short of fried. I don’t know if I’ve actually officially talked about it on the blog yet, but I’ve started studying for a TEFL qualification. For those that aren’t aware: TEFL stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language, which will enable me to teach English in foreign countries. It’s busting my balls. Once I pass, I think I’m going to write a little about my historic struggles with education and learning, because it’s gonna feel like a really huge achievement that I’ll probably want to talk more about and reflect on – but for now just trust me when I say this is the biggest thing I’ve pushed myself to do in years. I digress, we’re here to talk about the week that’s just been, and while it’s not been quite as exciting as some recently, we’ve still got more …

Happy Sunday

It has been a good week. For food, for people, for trains of thought, it’s all been pretty dreamy. Right now, my skin is glowing with what I’m sure is going to be ferocious sun burn by the morning and my hair smells like BBQ smoke. I don’t think there’s a much better state to be in by Sunday evening this early into spring, is there? OK, it’s possible that we overdid it in the sun just a little. This morning, we walked from Mile Oak to Brighton Marina for our first BBQ of 2017. I’ll tell you all about that in just a second, but first, Brighton Marathon. Disclaimer: I’m very, very hormonal today, so my reactions to all the acts of human kindness and general life moments I witnessed were not rational by anyones standards. I cried at: young children shouting words of encouragement to runners they didn’t know using the names they had on their running vests old people sat outside the residential homes lined up next to each other to clap …
