Announcement: #BlogstaurantWeek

Because that’s what bloggers do, right? Announcements?

So, after the Christmas and New Year period, it all gets a bit…’flat’, doesn’t it?

Well, not in Newcastle!


Twice a year, the powers that be at Get Into Newcastle, NE1 (they’re amazing by the way) organise, with many of the City’s best restaurants, a brilliant week for your stomachs – and your wallets! Step aside fashion week (although, we have that too), during Restaurant Week, you can find over 80 restaurants with either 2 or 3 courses for £15 (some £10!).

So, many bloggers and vloggers do “blogmas” or “vlogtober” or whatever, where they blog or vlog everyday for an extended period of time. Well, my life isn’t all that interesting, however, when it comes to Restaurant Week, I’m well on the ball. I haven’t missed a Newcastle Restaurant Week (meaning I’ve been to at least one restaurant in that week) since I moved up in September 2011 (bar one, which was during the 6 months I moved back home).

Again, this time, it’s different. Now I have this blog, I’m going to treat you (and myself) to what I’m calling: #BlogstaurantWeekThat’s right, I’ll be blogging after every night of Restaurant week, Monday 18th – Sunday 24th. One restaurant each day, with, hopefully (!), company each day! All are confirmed and booked.

Perhaps, if I’m brave enough, I’ll include an outfit post but I can guarantee I’ll stand there cringing at the camera, laughing, then giving up.

The first place we’ll be heading to will be announced on Twitter during the weekend, I think the posts will probably come during the following day (it’s not easy blogging on a full stomach, when all you want to be is horizontal!).


Update: #BlogstaurantWeek is now in full swing, click here to see all posts.

    Going out each night during restaurant week, I’m impressed! Looking forward to reading your posts. I’m going out once but we haven’t decided where, I better get a move on to avoid disappointment

      definitely! We were disappointed about not getting into one place in time, however I went there during the last restaurant week so I was quite up for trying somewhere else! Also, if you’re planning on going on Friday, Saturday or maybe even Sunday, have a look whether they’re taking part. Also have a look at NE2 Restaurant Week! Many places in Jesmond are doing their own! 🙂

    OMG such a great idea! Every year I say I want to go out every night but I always end up just doing a few. I’m jealous! Not heard of NE2 Restaurant Week! Need to go read up on that.

      Yeah, it’s a thing! Quite new I think but I’m looking forward to other Jesmond venues joining in over time! Thanks for stopping by! x
