Hard Rock Cafe Lagos

Finally went to Hard Rock Cafe, Lagos (“HRC”) which started operations in December, 2015  on Valentine’s Day and surprisingly even though we did not make a reservation, it was not as busy as we thought and so we did not have to wait in line – Yay. FIL was quite late to the party (2 months late which aint bad) but quite glad that Lagos got its very own Hard Rock Cafe and hopefully this might pave the way for other brands to come here *fingers crossed*. First thought was wow this place is huge with really high ceilings and in looks and all […]

Hey Hey!! 4-day work week yay! To celebrate the short week, decided to go with some Deli Special Pasta from Goodness Gracious Gourmet (“GGG”).   Placed my order for lunch from Goodness Gracious Gourmet (“GGG”) last night because I did want to carry last and find out that orders foe the day had been maxed out.
