Today and tomorrow, my colleagues are in town for a team meeting. This means that, after a hard day's slog, there's always a very loud and social dinner, as we only get together in person 3-4 times a year. Tonight, another team were also in town, so we doubled the noise and social experience.

We went to the Backbencher, straight across the road from Parliament buildings, just down from where I worked for many years, and also very close to where our team meeting was. I love the atmosphere at the Backbencher. The puppets of politicians, sports persons, and tv personalities past and present are always a great novelty, especially to show off to out-of-towners. I guess the scenery will be set to change after the upcoming election; who knows what the outcome will be?

I also love the humour of the ever-changing menu (very topical!). The food is reasonably good pub fare with a lot of variety. All in all, a fun night out, even if it's a "work" function.
