David is an old friend of the Club and been with us since Day 1. He lives in London with his Japanese wife Kasumi. They recently retired and have moved to Tokyo. Over the next few months, he has agreed to keep us informed of interesting taste experiences they encounter while in Japan.
Our friends and top Club supporters, David and his Japanese wife Kasumi, recently retired and moved to Tokyo. This is part 2 in the Ageing Gaijin blog series where they share the taste experiences they encounter while in Japan. This one is all about a very different Christmas lunch.
We thought you might like our reading recommendation. Jon McGregor’s latest, award winning book, Reservoir 13, is set in a fictional Derbyshire village near a reservoir with a limestone crag from which you can see a cement works. Is this sounding like anywhere you’re familiar with?
Here at the Club we enjoy the good things in life, and of course life itself. But what if here on the earthly plane we’re only enjoying half the fun? It’s an uplifting thought that perhaps once we shuffle off this mortal coil, we’ll still be around somehow to keep an eye on our loved ones and receive the same love and admiration we did when we were alive and kicking – and in many countries, this belief has been held as gospel for generations.
You might have noticed a new addition to our patio recently – a spectacular sculpture by local artist Bill Gordon. This fantastic piece of work was donated by Bill to raise money for the Heart for Hathersage development project. Come to the club to view the work and to buy a ticket (or lots) for a chance to win the sculpture for yourself.
Summer Thursday evenings are called TM’s Socials because TM, our Club Monkey, is an extremely relaxed little fellow!
Most of our evening events are pre-booked with guests choosing their menu in advance or having a tasting menu. Throughout Summer, our Thursday evenings take a more casual approach – we’re open from 6pm – 10pm and you can book a table (or take your chances and just rock up) and choose from the menu when you get here.
