THE art of Jimmy Wags was on show at No.1 Duke Street on Friday night.

The crowd was entertained by the music of Sarah McCafferty, who regaled her audience with what she happily describes as "conscious folk for conscious folk".

By all accounts the food was excellent and the double- baked three-cheese soufflé which was served as an appetiser received unanimous rave reviews.

James Hampshire, a close friend of Jimmy, said "It's great to see something cool like this happen for such a good bloke."

Jimmy secured at least one new order on the night and a great deal of strong interest and support.

Jimmy's wife, Kylie and son Zach were both on hand to help Jimmy launch his new venture.

A good night was had by all.
