It was all about arphid and was really really good (look elsewhere if you need more detail) but the most fantastic bit is that the good folks at Space took him to The Dolphin on Mare Street for a beer afterwards. As my wife says ‘The Dolphin is the kind of place where men fall off their bar stools and women look at them with eyes full of pity knowing they’ll be going home with them.’ (Naturally it’s my favourite pub in Hackney).
