Hoping we don't invade his privacy...

A small but select group this week at the Manor Arms, good discussion re. our general lack of Jewish knowledge and complete lack of Yiddish but overall enjoyment of Kalooki Nights. Decided that we'd quite like to know the rules of kalooki if anyone knows them?

Some interesting suggestions for next time, winner was:

The Terrible Privacy of Maxwell Sim by Jonathan Coe

Other were:
Homeland by Barbara Kingsolver
The Corrections by Jonathan Frazen
A Disaffection by James Kelman

The Manor Arms was quiet and very full of dogs! We thought we might try another venue next, just because nothing quite compares to the Bread and Roses! (for those interested I did contact the Bread and Roses to check on the quiz and no they aren't running it at the moment but they are due to start it up again soon, and at the moment they have an Acoustic night on a Wednesday! No luck...)
So we'll give the Stonhouse a whirl on the 13th July (4 weeks time, sorry for those who will be away). It definitely does proper food and has an outside (IF the sun ever decides to shine!).

The Stonhouse, 165 Stonhouse St, Clapham

So hope to see you there...
