Last night Jesse and I and a huge gaggle of girlies headed over to Earl's Court for a night of cocktails, pizzas and ping pong. Ping is the absolute ideal hangout, think American kitchen meets frat house party and the perfect place to celebrate our birthday. Ping pong tables, dashing waiters, uber cool DJ's, scrumptious food and even more delicious cocktails was just the fuel needed to keep the ping pong coming all night.
Sitting right in the heart of the joint, we were presented with a round of slushies.
Think grown up slush puppies, with a touch of that naughty stuff. Keep em' coming!
|Salame - Mozzarella on a tomato base, with spicy Italian salame and chilli.|
|Ice Ice Baby - Ping's very own concoction, Absolut Citron, Limoncello a dash of sugar and single cream.|
|Winter Staple - Roast chicken, garlic roast potatoes & beetroot on baby spinach with croutons.|
|Pesto - Basil pesto, grated parmesan and roasted potatoes on a mozzarella base.|
|The Queen - Rich tomato sauce on their signature pizza base, fior di latte mozzarella, sun blushed cherry tomatoes & wild rocket.|
Food was positively delicious, naturally most of us opted for one of the many pizza's on offer, but Crawf being on her 'no processed food' diet went for the salad which was equally as scrumptious.
Following dinner and of course a few more cocktails, and hello ping pong time.
Naturally it's all in the name of fun, but we couldn't all deny that we weren't a tad competitive, and our light hearted round robin tournament got rather feisty.
Roni & Laura were a great team, sadly the cocktails had affected my hand eye co-ordintation ever so slightly, but otherwise I would have won hands down
errrrmmm definitely not.

Following the never ending beer pong tournament and a high competitive game of flip cup (far too involved for photos - apologies) we went back to the ping pong for a doubles tournament.
Team twinnies. We were obviously the best team going and lasted way more than 2 points....
We bat and balled the night away till the early hours of the morning all grinning from ear to ear with a slushy infused triumphant feeling which lasted the entire taxi journey home.
Thank you to all my gorgeous girlies who made the night just so much fun.
Already planning a return trip.
Sadly Ping isn't open for lunch but get yourselves down at 6:00pm every evening and chalk your names onto that big ol'blackboard to get a slot on the highly coveted tables, check them out on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and online here.
Happy Easter y'all!
