One to go

by 3arn0wl

End of the week, and a study of students have gone out on the razz.

Starting with a few bevvies in the Carpenter’s Arms.

Then on to Chorley Tandorley for the CurryOke.

Well up for it, most of them were going to go to The Place, where DJ John Deere was spinning the discs, but Pixie Smith and the guy she’d just picked up cried off.  They’d made plans for Going Down in stead. 😉

A Holi mess

by 3arn0wl

The last full moon of the Winter signalled an evening of colourful celebration at the Chorley Tandorley last night.

Customers arrived for a party dressed all in white, and ended up leaving some hours later attired in Jackson Pollock print, as people of all ages, gender and backgrounds abandoned all decorum and threw coloured powder and perfume at one another.

There was singing and dancing,  and prodigious quantities of food and booze consumed!

The Vice Squad  ‘raided’ the restaurant but found absolutely no evidence of vices at the event.  They were mock-beaten by some of the female revelers with cardboard tubes, and they howled their protests!

A bonfire was lit and fireworks rounded off a highly colourful evening.

“May your holiday be blessed.”

Moh Ahmeddoh’s had a few days off!

He’d got loads of annual leave mounting up and, well apart from planting tulip bulbs, tidying up after Bonfire Night, and the endless, unwinnable battle against the falling leaves,  there wasn’t much doing.

He’d thought about going abroad, but decided to stay home in the end:

He’d been to have his hair cut.

He’d skimmed stones on the Bredy.

He’d even been for a run on Lord Rupert’s Estate.

And as he walked around the town hall in Market Square, he got to thinking about the story of Abraham and Ishmael.  Well! That gave him a craving for a Lamb Rogon Josh from the Chorley Tandorley, with a Keema naan!

Spaced out

by 3arn0wl

Tom Bell’s eschewed the bright lights and the noise of the city.

Not for him the Highgate Run.  Nor did he wish to jig about The Place.  He wasn’t even interested in a Paneer Makhani with a peshwari naan and a mushroom bhagi side at the Chorley Tandorley.

For tonight, there was going to be quite a show! Meteors zapping across the sky as the Earth moves through the particles Halley’s Comet shedded 26 years ago.

  • He’s got his flask of Spicy Pumpkin Soup and a round of sandwiches.
  • He’s got his 12 megapixel XLR camera with its long lens pointing in the direction of the shower.
  • And he’s got his eight incher out.

So he’s all set for a peep at one of the wonders of the Universe.

Ravi & Rishi Chauhan have never really got on. Even as boys they used any opportunity they could find to put the boot in. They found the forced bonhomie of Raksha Bandhan fake: the only bond they knew was used for gluing shoes.

Nevertheless, here they are at the Chorley Tandorley, and their sister, Rakhi is tying plaited shoelaces around their wrists.

Once more, they will trill that oft heard cliché All for one, and one for all – and make a promise that they will look out for each other.

Rites of passage

by 3arn0wl

Although it’s undoubtedly the best tandorley restaurant in Chorley, perhaps unsurprisingly things had been quiet over the festive period.

And so the staff were relieved to see the University students back for the new term:

Reassuring to know that in this ever changing world, some things remain the same.
