Burnt Offering

posted 9 Jun 2012, 02:51 by Sandra Kirby
Yesterdays big news was the fire at The Backbencher pub.  This has long been one of our favorite places in Wellington with its strong political link.  
You can see poor old Peter Dinne puppet here - loks like he was got by burning bush as became in from wilderness.
Adrian and I were booked for dinner atBacbencher for Wednesday this week to see the 3rd to last Backbencher programme.   It si going to be Speights Ale House now so not quite the same but we'll still go.
Apparently fire started in kitchen an dthere is pretty extensive damage.  Will be closed for around 6 weeks - so it is touch and go whether Adrian will actually get back there again at all as he leaves in 6 weeks.
