Lets just make it clear off the bat: I was so drunk for most of this dinner. The photos are not great for that reason. Matthew served us so much good wine, and I kept having glass after glass. I had so much fun. Here’s to good friends, and meeting new ones! WHAT A GREAT DINNER PARTY!!!

[Insert photo of roast beef here: unfortunately at this point I was so wasted I could hardly stop smiling and chatting to take a photo. We were all so smashed!]
I am indeed, inspired. Thanks for the amazing dinner!
