The Daily Waffle: Episode One Hundred and Seven

July 7, 2020

 

CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT THIS WEEK'S RACK

 

WE'RE COMING BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Destination Venus will re-open at 1pm on Saturday, 11th July. We will be asking customers to remain at least 2m away from anyone they don't live with, and we will be limited to two customers at any one time, so we might have to ask you to queue outside. (Regulars will know that this is unlikely to happen - we rarely have more than two of you in at once...)

 

We will be accepting cash, but contactless card payments are preferred. 

 

For the time being we will be open 1pm - 5.30pm on Saturdays and 4pm - 6pm on Wednesdays. These opening hours are tied to the opening of the Cinema and we hope to increase them in due course.

 

In the meantime free deliveries in Harrogate and Knaresborough will continue.

 

It's going to feel a little strange, but it's going to be good to be back!

 

 

THE NAKED ATTRACTION OF COSPLAY

 Not sure how this works, but Channel 4 are looking to do a "Cosplay Special" of its nude dating show "Naked Attraction". Quite how one cosplays in the nude (unless you're doing Lady Godiva) is beyond us, but if you're interested, you can find out more HERE.

This is clearly a far from exhausting list - and it's writer heavy because I tend to follow writers not artists. We'll be adding to it.

 

Go follow them, and find more women to follow, and listen. You don't have to agree, but it's high time that we listened to what women have to say.
