My final date on Saturday evening was with my handsome fella. I picked him up from work, and we went into Sheffield. Its Sheffield's food festival for the next 2 weeks, and the Wig and Pen restaurant/Bar was hosting a barbecue/mini music festival in Paradise Square which it backs on to. I LOVE paradise square. It is a perfect little Georgian Square which lies behind the Cathedral.
The music had started at 12 noon, and a different band was on every hour. Sheffield is a fab place for live music - of every kind. Paradise Square on a summers evening was perfect for it. The atmosphere was really lovely. Why can't it be a summer's evening every evening?
Of course, the many delights of the Barbecue were a big draw - a steak sandwich for me and the fella were in order! Well done the Wig and Pen for organising such a brilliant event.
I was also interested to discover some of the very interesting former inhabitants of this gorgeous little square.
After our food and some very welcome cool beer, we decided to have a wander around the city. The whole of the city was basking in evening sunlight and people were so enjoying the heat and the fabulous atmosphere.
You get the same shot of the town hall later - it wont delete!!!
Contrast and compare the new and the old architecture - both fab and both very welcome in our lovely city.
Can you spot Mr Heartshaped and I?
Anybody who has been to Sheffield in recent years will know that we just love our water features.
Since Ive been a blogger, and hubby tags along with me, we spot things that we might only spot if we were on holiday. So I suppose blogging makes me feel like I am on holiday in my own city - which I felt that we were - which is a great feeling.
It was wonderful to stroll around the city on such a perfect evening.
Buy I still hadn't done. I had made you a promise, that I had to keep - so where did we go next?
