Did you see those first tantalising flakes of snow sprinkle over Norwich like grated cheese on one of Will’s soups the other day?!
Massive excitement is the order of the day at Aroma, as we reflect on a sensational November. We’re happy to say the colder weather and longer nights did nothing to dampen your fun, and from private parties and black and red birthday shindigs to our own celebrations of close friends aplenty, there’s been a fantastic upbeat feel to things recently.
We’ve been super busy prepping plenty of surprises for the coming year, including our tickets-only Wine Tasting & Food Pairing, a first for 2018 come February.
But we’ve also kept the love going for our fabulous community. We said happy birthday to Tony, our writer in attendance, as well as Zsolt, our favourite Hungarian (don’t tell Erno Rubik, inventor of Tom’s favourite toy).
We also marked the occasion of the esteemed Guy Wilkinson’s ‘Meditation’ photography collection, and even dropped round to deliver some goodies to our injured buddy Roger. Whew!
Yet as we saw, and as Mercedes got way too excited about, November rounded off with flurries of snow, like a tingly promise of what’s to come…
If November was enriched by celebration, December is of course the month for even more party spirit… with a few party spirits, if you know what we mean. Christmas bookings are taking off, but if you and your company have left it last minute, relax. There’s still a little time and plenty of room for you and yours, if you’re ready to book with us.
It’s the season of giving too, and so giving we indeed are! How does free mulled wine and mince pies sound?
That’s right, you lick your lips and rub your belly. We know what you like!
Our mulled wine and mince pies sessions fall on the 8th, 15th, 21st and 22nd December, between 5PM and 7PM. Proper tasty and deliciously warming!
Of course, we’re also welcoming new art and creativity to our floors in December. The esteemed and effusive Volta poetry movement, with its established performers and its available open-mic slots, is coming to Aroma for the first time on 14th December. While we’ve hosted poetry nights of our own before, we’re especially excited to see what this much beloved event can bring. Join us!
Christmas is also board games season, although you can leave those misty memories of angry Monopoly in the dust where they belong. Our Christmas board games night promises a much more giggly and tipsy affair, with a mix of classics and new modern favourites. If you’re not too fussed on making the Naughty List you can also try your hands at the more racy games making an appearance too…
Of course, the main event is Christmas itself, and after last year’s popular pyjama party, replete with drinks and Christmas films on the projector, we’re going bigger and better this year.
Confirm your attendance with us, and you’ll be part of our Secret Santa. Show up in either an ugly Christmas jumper or the festive jim-jams of your choice, and be a good sport and bring a little something for our festive buffet. We’ll provide the good times, good drinks and good company… we’re looking forward to seeing you! Will you be joining us this Christmas?
