After seeing the ad below, Lovebumps and I are taking her kids on a special (early) evening Civic experience.

Chicken Gourmet chips, followed by Pancake Parlour pancakes.

At 7:30PM Garema Place be still be hosting the dinner crowd. So they won’t see any booze-fuelled antics. Like the sort we used to get up to in the same establishments, years ago before they came along.
