So last night was the grand opening party of Almost Famous Liverpool. If you're not aware of Almost Famous, it was a burger restaurant in Manchester - a decadent, hedonistic meat and alcohol lovers paradise. Sadly the Manchester restaurant is currently closed due to a tragic fire. But with pop up joints else where in Manchester, and further plans for expansion, the dream lives on. Including the now open Liverpool restaurant, on Parr Street.
I did some photos for them a few weeks ago, I posted some previews back then, a pretty girl with a burger, I'm sure you will have seen them if you've visited my blog regularly. One plan for them was to be part of an installation in the new place, blown up rather big (around 3x3 metres), which for any photographer is quite exciting to see your own work used on a large scale.
I originally couldn't make the opening night (lack of funds, damn it), but I was invited along on the promise of free transport, food, and most importantly, alcohol, ha ha! And indeed the dream does live on, hedonistic meaty, boozy excess, and a damn good atmosphere. I can only heartily recommend the River Pheonix burger, and the Popcorn Whiskey Old Fashioned cocktails...
