I'm not sure if any of you noticed, but it was a full moon this weekend. Whilst us Crow Crew aren't superstitious types, there is no denying that every full moon brings with it a strange amount of customers that seem to have crawled out from under rocks to be a royal pain in the whoopsie, and the only explanation, the only common denominator, is the moon! Well this weekend was no exception. While the puzzle of why the lunar calendar links to the creatures of the underworld frequenting the towns finest waterholes, remains unsolved and strange goings on were noted, they did little to detract from yet another fantastic week at The Crooked Crow Bar. Luckily for us, we have an awesome core of absolutely lovely customers (& some new faces we hope to be seeing again soon) that helped to keep things balanced and some fantastic bands, who's epic gigs that made it all worth while!
Last week we launched a trial event, which was a blend of an escape room, murder mystery & games night. We hadn't a lot of time to prepare the event (hosting 3-4 events a week means there is little time for new projects!), but once we went through the brain-melting process of getting our heads around how we could make the event work without a dedicated start time, utilising the shared bar space with customers that may not wish to participate, without pre-booking & being able to have teams of different sizes & abilities and how to keep it fun, cost effective and not turn into a boring paper-fest, it all went really well! So, a few minor tweaks will be made to link the puzzles together more smoothly and (now we know how to format the event), the puzzles can be more interactive, creative and silly and we will start to host these events on a monthly basis! We will send out the details of our next event as soon as it is ready to launch and get it up on our website and socials, so watch this space!!!
We had fantastic live music last weekend from The Zeroes, Matt Johnson & Folk The System. All performers will be invited back to The Crooked Crow Bar, so keep an eye on our gig lists for more info.
