Brown and Co is quite possibly my favourite shop in Wellington. Ostensibly for the “masculine” design aesthetic, the menagerie of taxidermy and overpriced toothpaste in glorious packaging speaks to me.
Good Friday. Three friends and I gathered together to watch all twelve episodes of the inestimable BBC drama The Hour. We drank whisky and ate snacks and swooned over Freddie and Bel and Hector and Marnie and Lix and Mr Brown.
I woke at 7am to a text advising me I had a free beer. I woke again at 9 to a text from Laura telling me it was she who had signed me up and would I like to meet her for a beer?
Free is my favourite amount to pay for Heineken. So we met for beer and to set the world to rights.
