Five #LIF18 events that haven’t sold out (yet)

LIF Norse: The Spa ExchangeLeeds Indie Food 2018 is two weeks to eat, drink and do. Returning for it’s fourth year and running from May 10th to 28th, LIF is a citywide celebration of some of the best food and drink on offer in Leeds. I’ve got my tickets booked for events across the festival, but I thought I would share some of the ones that haven’t sold out yet…


A Brief Bit On Bundobust

A little while ago I met up with some friends for nothing more than a good old catch up. One of the group suggested the venue should be Bundobust, an Indian street food and craft beer eatery, nestled down one of Leeds’ side streets. I originally had a table for four arranged in for a box standard Italian chain, and never have I been so glad I cancelled a booking.

The Alchemist – A Celebration of Taste

All too often I find myself in the centre of Leeds on a Saturday, but with no other cause than shopping, and with no other company than my own. Thus it was a delight to find myself this weekend, with a reservation for three in the prime time spot of The Alchemist on Greek Street.

The purpose of our visit was to celebrate my 25th(!) birthday, or as one of our dining party put it being ‘a third of my way through life’. It has been a long few months, and it certainly didn’t feel much like my birthday, but I was glad I at least insisted on a meal out. Sometimes the company of friends is what we need to recharge our batteries.
