Taptu's Christmas Bash, La Raza, Cambridge - 21st December 2007

It's a "hair of the dog" moment as, the night after Isobel's works' do, we find ourselves at Nosher's works' do in the Tapas bar that is La Raza - where Taptu seems to have been quite a few times before. The place is lively, there's a good Taptu turn-out, and the food's pretty good too, although the shark steaks, whilst tasty, are ludicrously small. We start the night with a few Mojitos, thanks to Tiina who gets carried away and buys cocktails for the whole company, and follow up with another tranche of wine. The next day, we're on Mill Road again, and see the ongoing poster-protest about a proposed Tesco Metro in an old shop, which none of the locals want to see, but which is clearly a fait accompli.
