Quick Bites: October 9

Please sir, can I have some more?

Cheap food, free food, and lots of food. Anyone would think Brisbaneites are greedy, gluttonous people. Personally, I’m a bit offended. Now if you’ll excuse me-I’m off to all-you-can-eat sushi.

1. Celebrate the return of the buffet at Siana. The chic riverside restaurant and bar has introduced a curry lunch buffet, available Monday to Thursday from 12pm-3pm. Three hours? I might need more time than that to get my fill of korma and naan. Oh well, at $20 a pop, I shouldn’t complain.

2.Think big. Think lots of people. Think a goal to raise lots of money. Think lots of snags. Think the Big City BBQ, on next Friday (16/10) in the CBD. The Riparian Plaza Forecourt will play host to this fundraiser barbie, as well as a plethora of entertainment, such as singer Guy Sebastian. It’s on from 11.30am-2pm, and all money raised benefits DRUG ARM Australiasia and the Lord Mayor’s Community Trust. Plus there will be something called ‘Brissie’s Longest Charity Snag’. I don’t know what this is but it sounds amazing. I envisage a really, really big sausage.

3. And now, in a shameless self-promoting plug (plus I’m sure there will be some leftover free food), I urge you all to get along to the Courier Mail Home and Design Show this weekend. Why? I’ll be there. Cooking. In a competition. I find this quite hilarious, and a bit disconcerting. How the hell am I going to stop myself from licking the bowl? I always, always lick the bowl. Raw cake batter is a true delicacy in my mind, and I might go mental having batter dregs stare at me tauntingly. The pressure is on. Oh yeah, and I hope my Oreo Cupcakes turn out well too and I win, etc. etc.
