Sherlock Lunch GGB Fresno: The Return of Moriarty
Honey, you should see us in a crown!
GGB Fresno was VERY excited for the return of Sherlock this year, so we decided to honor our favorite consulting criminal, Jim Moriarty, with lunch at a local Irish pub called Irish O’Sullivan’s. We tucked into items such as shepherd’s pie and prime rib sandwiches while getting to know the five new members who joined us at lunch. We discussed both current TV productions of Sherlock Holmes – Sherlock (BBC) and Elementary – with some good-natured ribbing between us co-officers who’ve had a history of playfully arguing over the two variants. We also enjoyed bantering about the upcoming Sherlock convention coming to Los Angeles, travel, other beloved British TV shows, and of course, our love of Benedict Cumberbatch, our Sherlock ships, and our theories for what the next two episodes of the show will reveal.
Each of our members were given packets of “Moriar Tea” and Sherlock and John Watson shaped sugar cookies made from specialty cookie cutters I purchased from Warp Zone Prints. Hopefully the ladies can soothe all their feels during the remainder of the season with tea and biscuits!
Two of our newest members went home with our Sherlock themed raffle prizes. Amy won a sample of Twinings tea and a union jack tea bag holder – the perfect accessory for tea with the Napoleon of crime. Sam won a super cute crocheted mini deerstalker created and donated by one of our GGB Fresno members, Courtney L.! Thank you again, Courtney! Before parting ways and waiting for the East Wind to come for us all, we recreated this recent Sherlock promo photo. Not bad, huh?
Many thanks to all our Sherlockians for joining us! May we all survive the Sherlock finale! To the best of times!
