After the tills closed on our 45th Birthday Sale, the wine (and beer!) continued to flow. Tilly Lloyd gave a short speech (below) then opened the microphone to anyone who wanted to speak. Staff paparazzi Matt Bialostocki (MB) and Marta Starosta (MS) documented the evening.
Tilly’s Speech: “The shop has always leaned back on our fortuitous past. Please raise your glasses to Alan Preston, Nigel Cox, and Prue de Villiers who shaped this place more than we realise.
To absent friends.
Speaking of the contents of your glass, something close to a new boutique beer we wish to call Unity Bock, could we raise a round of applause to the guys from up Aro Street, Garage Brewery
This shop is always about the people. And when you look around the room you can see why.
Thanks again for being here with us. The mic is now open and you are all welcome to use it.”
