Primos Hotdogs - Themed Night

Primo's Gourmet Hot Dogs in Leeds Corn Exchange are doing a number of themed nights until December. Having seen one blog post of a previous night I was keen to give one a go. I chose to go to the American themed night on Independence Day (July 4th) which they named 'Dixie'.

A set menu of three courses with a drink to accompany each course. A £5 deposit is needed per person to book and the total cost is £17.50 each.

Browns 1973 menu - Leeds

I can't remember how or when but I signed up to 'friends of Brown's' emails but it was a long time ago. The last time I visited for food was about 4 years ago. I've popped in for the odd cocktail (on a few drunken nights) but I was never tempted to eat there again... From what I can recall the last time I visited I had steak and it was sent back, only to return with the same chips by then stone cold.

Tweet for a Table - Leeds

About a month ago now an email popped up in my inbox from Co-operative food. They were touring the country doing something called 'Tweet for a Table'.

A pop up restaurant that as the name suggests you have to tweet to get a table. Lucky for me I didn't even have to do this... they asked me if I wanted a table for me plus a couple of friends.

I gladly obliged. Clearly.

Myself and two work colleagues went after work (our reservation pre-booked) excited to see what food would be served to us (for free!).

At 5.45pm we turned up (already told not to be late...) and were seated in their float like restaurant. It was nice to be sat outside dining alfresco and funny to see all the perplexed looks from people walking by.
