About

Hi!

I’m Keith Greywood, and I write the Bacchanalian blog.

I currently live in North London, surrounded by far too many great places to eat and drink.

I run to offset the beer belly and work as a digital marketer where I sit down far too much. I got into the internet back in 1998 and love it (who doesn’t?). My first job was in a pub. I started fairly early on the path to becoming bacchanalian.

Although i’ve always been able to drink just about anything, but once upon a time I was considered a very fussy eater. I was known to only eat chips, and perhaps the odd chicken nugget. I was pretty stubborn. And still am!

Now, some decades later I eat most things, but alas, am still not a fan of the dreaded mushroom or the evil peanut. I still do love a good chip, but my consumption of these tasty delights has reduced to minuscule proportions, and usually in sweet potato-wedge form.

I am hoping to provide some unique content in due course using some technical wizardry I’m interested in learning, but until that day I will write what I know.

It could be a restaurant discovered whilst travelling, or you’ll find me raving about some local delights found whilst wandering my manor.

In case you were wondering, I came across the phrase ‘bacchanalian propensities’ whilst reading Dicken’s ‘A Tale of Two Cities’, and thought it was a wonderful turn of phrase. I stole it as it seemed rather apt for this blog.

Where does the word originate? Well you may know of Bacchus, the Roman god of agriculture, wine and fertility which was based upon the Greek god Dionysus.
