On Wednesday night we hosted our inaugural Adam & Ale event at Bar Topolksi on the Southbank in London.  I’m sat sluggishly typing away with a somewhat ‘hazy the-day-after-the-night-before’ head that can only mean that I had a great evening and too many ales for a school night.  Judging by feedback I’ve had from the […]
