We went out for dinner tonight at a pub called The Fiddler. It used to be called The Mean Fiddler and was ranked as the most violent pub in NSW. They cleaned up their act like eight years ago after there was a big push by the government and police to start fining venues, and it's actually bloody lovely now! Really nice outdoor courtyard area, and there's there's BIG Irish pub section with all wood panelling and multiple levels and comfy chairs and nooks and crannies. We're planning on going there again specifically when the weather is properly cold so we can go to the Irish bit and engage cozy mode.
I got a Guinness pie with mash and mushy peas which was pretty tasty and Kristina got a burger, which wasn't anything to write home about but it was standard pub food and the chips were quite good.
We had Ben over again today for a Beanie visit and some Warhammer Underworlds. The Beanie visit went very well, we didn't even give Beanie any of his medicine and he'd pretty well calmed down inside of ten minutes! Warhammer Underworlds ended up being extremely close, Ben and I tied for the win on 10 glory, and Kristina got 9!
And then we went to a pub near us for dinner and I had a burger and it was excellent. 👌🏻
We took full advantage of the NSW Government's "Dine and Discover" scheme where everyone gets two $25 vouchers for eating out and two $25 for visiting museums or seeing movies or whatever. Aw yiss. Even better it was Schnitty Wednesday at the Bavarian ($10 schnitzels) so two schnitzels plus a cider cost us the princely sum of $7.50.
It was surprisingly busy for a Wednesday night, I wonder how long it's going to take before seeing tons of people in one place doesn't feel weird.
Fuck yeah, went to The Bavarian at Rouse Hill for dinner tonight. Always so damn good.
The ordering and payment was really interesting, there was a QR code to scan that took you to a website where you selected what you wanted from the menu, and the site offered Apple Pay so it was absolutely frictionless. Didn't even need the waitress to come over for anything but delivering the food.
