Eventbrite

I wasn’t going to do any work today. But I did update my Eventbrite pages.

I’ve tried different types of ticketing services. So far I like Eventbrite and Brownpaper Tickets the best.

I really like that you can set up a mixture of free, pay what you can, and regular paid ticketed events with Eventbrite and Brownpaper Tickets.

Here’s the link to all of Griots Arts upcoming Black History Month Wales events on Eventbrite, http://www.eventbrite.co.uk/org/4369573393

Below is a picture of sloe berries from the garden. A friend has told me that there’s a sloe gin contest being run in a local pub. I’ve never made sloe gin. But I think I’ll try (although I won’t be drinking any). I’m also going to make some sloe-apple jam, very nice with savoury dishes.image
