In the evening Mr Monkey went out for a meal with his friends from the 4_Mystery_Addicts Yahoo group, who, like Mr Monkey, were in Bristol for Left Coast Crime. He sort of led them* up Park Street to Benny's Pizza Plus, where there were enough tables for 25 or so people. On the way, Mr Monkey acquired a beautiful 'Friend of Donna Moore' badge, because he's a friend of Donna Moore. And then there was plenty of food and drink and chat, and some people sang, until it was time to leave.
* in the sense of being in front of some people and behind others and not really leading anyone at all.
