The best laid plans…

…I suppose plans are just plans, until they happen.

So even though I planned cover for the next few days over 6 months ago, this cover is now no longer there and unfortunately I have to leave the Carrot CLOSED from Thursday 10 September until Tuesday 15 September, apart from Saturday when the lovely Sorrel and Iona will open from 10am to 2pm to sort out all your breakfasty brunch needs – The Shakshuka is an excellent batch, Fritatta’s are Chard-full and the glorious coffee is, as always, served just the way you like it. So do pop in and make their day 🙂

Up-coming events to note include:

Thursday 17 Sept – 7.45pm, round 4 of 2015 wine wars featuring France. After under-performing last year, and getting thrashed by Australia, they will be hoping for a considerable improvement this time out.  – There are only a couple of spaces left so let me know asap, or book up in person with the girls on Saturday.

Friday 18 Sept – 7.30pm for 8pm start – Popular Paul’s Pop Quiz.  With the return to action of Popular Paul it’s sure to be a humdinger of an evening. If you’re looking for food as well we’ll have chicken fajitas or a curry smorg to tickle the taste-buds. Again it’s best to let us know if you are coming so we can cater for you properly, oh and the jackpot round is now hovering around the £150 mark, if that’s what floats your boat – Sian this means YOU

Friday 25 Sept – 7pm for 7.30 start Hassocks Hash, but with added treasure hunt – We’ll offer both a run event and a walking challenge to navigate your way around Hassocks. So get the family off the sofa and enter the latest part of our NOTHING EVER HAPPENS IN HASSOCKS season of fortunate events, and finish up with food and drink back at the purple carrot – COMPLETO DOGS, spicy bean burger tascas or a big bowl of pasta will be on offer as well as prizes and congratulations.

Friday 16 Oct – HaHa Hassocks @ The Hassocks, in Hassocks –  On the subject of Nothing ever happens in Hassocks, I’m sure that many of you will be aware that our first comedy night in the August Bank Holiday was a resounding success, due to the help and cooperation of many people in the village, and the performers enjoyed it as much as the audience so that’s well worth having another go.  Friday 16 October and Friday 20 November are the next two dates and  a gaggle of stellar  comedians will once again make the trek from Brighton to Hassocks and visa-versa, with the most fabulous Stephen Grant again comparing with wit, insight and no small amount of bonhomie .  The venue switches to the function rooms of the Hassocks hotel and such is the interest that we have pre-orders for more than half the tickets already. Tickets will be available from Wednesday 16 Sept – both at the Purple Carrot and online – check out Hassocks Comedy pages on facebook for further details.

I’m off to get beaten up by some 5 foot waves and jump off some crazy high rocks, while pretending I’m still a teenager….until next week
