Drinks place: Tomtom bar & eateryMonday, April 03, 2017
The sun is shining and it's just too good to miss it. Plus it's Friday. The manager lets us out early to enjoy what might be the last dose of hot weather before the wet and the gloomy season, so of course we head to the near bar with a decent deck area.
I'd been to Tomtom for the Christmas function for a previous company so know they have good food but this is my first time for an after work drinks. The interior is dark compared to the bright deck out the back, half covered in a canopy with couches, the other half in the sun with tables and chairs. This is definitely not a pub.
Half the department is already there, competing in size with another company boys in suits, and the DJ is just gearing up the music. The weather is awesome and the work week is over and we deserve this rare early getaway!
Each with a drink in hand, we shout over each other and the music, by now blasting it out.
It's just 5pm.
