No celebrities, but Snail meets Ivy drip

Not that the Snail likes to boast, but earlier this month he was wined and dined at London celebrity hotspot The Ivy – and not once, but twice in the same week.

On 17 October he donned a posh frock (if he says so himself, it was very becoming) and sneaked his way into a dinner organised by legal recruitment consultants Laurence Simons and US firm Covington & Burling to celebrate women in the law.

Then, on 20 October, the Snail hosted Lawyer 2B’s annual lunch at The Ivy to celebrate another fantastic year for the magazine.

But despite his best efforts the Snail failed to spot any celebrities – and instead bumped into Lawyer 2B’s former editor and frequent visitor to The Ivy Matheu Swallow.

Oh well, better luck next time.
