The General Election: Parliamentary Waffle House Election Special

Parliamentary Waffle House Election Special

So, that’s that. We voted, and now we’re waiting. The Tories have more votes than anyone else.

I thought I should do something to lift my own and your flagging spirits (except for the Conservatives among you that is – you should enjoy this too anyway). On the night of the general election I got myself a ticket for the Parliamentary Waffle House Election Special from Bompass & Parr so that I could watch it unfold with some friends, soe gin, and a bit of fun and surrealism.

Think Gin Cloud Machine (a walk in breathable gin cocktail), nail polishticians willing to give you a political manicure, prominent politican pinata, a gingerbread recreation of the gherkin, pork belly sandwiches, pie polls and many more election themed adventures running through the night until 8am.

I didn’t last that long, for I had a busy day Friday, but I had enormous fun while I was there, and can’t think of anywhere better to watch the exit polls and initial coverage. For your pleasure, here’s some photos from the evening. I have blogged about it previously, I know – and I know I’ll be asked – so – I have no affliliation with Bompass & Parr, I just love what they do.

  1. Oooh it looks like so much fun! I went for some banana waffles a couple of days ago & loved it there: it was geek heaven. Ended up going to a house-party for election night – my first allnighter in yonks- & wished I could have been in two places at once so I could have gone back to the waffle house too. Your excellent write-up helped lots though!

    • It was so much fun – wasn’t it Hannah?! I would have loved to pull an all nighter but work interfered. Thanks for your comment :)

  3. Such a fun night – Bompas & Parr could power the national grid with their imaginations. Only wish we could’ve done an all-nighter – imagine the gin and waffle fuelled carnage by 8am!
