Andy in Vegas

By | Brokers Blog | No Comments

Andy at the Eiffel Tower restaurant …. ?

Andy is currently on a three-week around the world trip, kicking off with a visit to The Eiffel Tower restaurant in Las Vegas; he tells us is just as prestigious as the Jules Verne restaurant at the real Eiffel Tower in Paris. Broker’s Gin is named in 007’s Vesper Martini on the cocktail list and is their pouring gin too!

He was last seen in Australia or, was it New Zealand?  It’s difficult to tell when he is such a jetsetter.  Let’s hope that he makes it back safely as he looks reluctant to leave.
