Tings 'n Times
Tucked away underneath a sport tavern, this bar, at the Hatfield Galleries , has never catered to trends but instead, has stuck to its roots. Done up in red, yellow and green, the place is literally a shrine to Bob Marley although some attention is paid to Peter Tosh, Eek-a-Mouse, Burning Spear and LKJ. The menu, printed on newspaper and known as The Ting Times, has not changed much and is based on pitas with fillings although stir-fry is also popular. Among the non-vegetarian fillings, carnivores can look forward to Mary Jane's lamb, the cumin beef, the pork-honey-mustard and the pepperoni chicken. Aside from the meals, this is a live music venue.
The atmosphere was buzzing and the place was full of people who were there for a purpose - to have fun and listen to excellent music.
On the cards for the evening were Strings and Skins and Skid and some DJ's. The duo with the traditional instruments (Strings 'n Skins) blew the crowd away and kicked up such flavour in the venue the entore audience were glued to their every movement and eating out of their hands.
The food at the venue was very tasty if you enjoy an excellent pita, but the beers and other drinks too expensive!
A venue definitely worth checking in on regularly as tey have many other brilliant acts coming in from all over the world.
Definitely be back there and the more people I can take with me the better.
