Once we got the tent set up (thanks to Eilish, no thanks to me) we went down to watch a series of short films in the Satellite Centre (known the rest of the year as the Old Boys School). When we came out we wanted to get something to eat. We ran into a friend of mine John Ryan Howard and he highly recommended The New Haven. It was time to say yes to a new restaurant…
