T.G.I Fridays Live Art & Cocktails Blogger Event!

Friday, November 08, 2013
My first blogger event! I was kindly invited by T.G.I Fridays to their live art and cocktails event in the royal exchange restaurant/bar on cross street in Manchester. I was really happy to be invited as it was my first blogger event, although I was nervous about going. Myself and one of my best friends Yasmin went yesterday and we had a great time! 
My outfit - dress: Asos sale £19, Jacket: Promod, Tights: Primark, Heeled boots: Newlook, Bag: Asos sale. 

The event is based on art and cocktails - T.G.I Fridays have created 100 new cocktails and the art at the event was inspired by three cocktails. Click here to check out their cocktails. The three main cocktails at this event included the: lemon Meringue Pie, Passionate Rose and the Poppy Candy Strawberry Margarita cocktails. The popping candy strawberry margarita was freakin' amazing, I had two! 

The staff were so nice, friendly and amazing at remembering so many different cocktails! The food looked great, I didn't have any but Yasmin did and it was really good. We had three cocktails each and we liked all of them. I had two strawberry margaritas and one Turkish delight which wasn't amazing as it was very sweet but overall it was nice. The strawberry margarita was made with tequila, strawberry liciour, strawberry/lime juice and popping candy on the rim of the glass - heaven! Yasmin has the Turkish Delight and the passionate rose which looked amazing. They also mixed up a cocktail that wasn't on the list for her. 

I had never been in any T.G.I Fridays restaurant or bar before and I love the decor and also the staff were great. I would definitely go to T.G.I Fridays again, either to the mixology bar (which is where we went for the event, its upstairs) and the restaurant looks great too. Overall, I had a great time at the event and I am grateful for being invited. I received a little polaroid drawing of me from one of the artists too. The artists at the event were @carolinedowsett and @erinecho. There was another artist making amazing cakes out of felt material.
