Seven years of Elitistreview

Elitistreview started seven years ago today – hooray! I’m amazed it has continued for so long and actually got a lot better in recent years. My readers appear to have think it has got better as well; in the past year I’ve had 86,494 unique visitors which is an increase of 38.4% on the previous year.

This post is a celebration of the diatribes and dissolution that is Elitistreview. I will choose seven of my favourite posts that will hopefully give you a giggle.

Firstly, abuse! The post everyone will surely want me to link to is the review of the utterly vomit-making Mollydooker horror. If you are after abuse I prefer this hatchet-job on the vile one star Serge et Company in Strasbourg from 2008. Abuse has been a constant feature of Elitistreview, this little number is from my second month online.

Sometimes the rage is tinged with happiness. This review of my local Thai restaurant on, what we were told, was the craziest night of the year shows my happiness with good food and my hatred of scaremongering, meddlesome ratbags. Purely as far as happiness goes I did rather like this Prum 1996 back in 2009. More on the rant side was this piece on my love for Sulfur in wine.

I was particularly pleased with this talk I gave in the Houses of Parliament about schizophrenia, not only because of the quality of the talk but also because of my stunning sartorial brilliance.

And with those seven posts I shall leave you to celebrate Elitistreview’s anniversary with me as I stagger off to get a huge drink. At least seven more years! Hooray!
