Quick Bites: September 29
What up! There are a few things in this life that give me pleasure: chocolate. Pad Thai. Small, furry animals. This week’s Quick Bites looks at events in Brisbane that (sort of) feature this magic triumvirate.
1. Get out the elastic pants and prepare for the Chocolate Buffet. The 40 days and 40 nights of chocolate event is back at the Bistro Allure in the Sebel hotel. Just $25 gets you an absolute feast of chocolate cakes, puddings, slices, etc. For more information, pick up your jaw off the floor and then visit http://www.mirvachotels.com/sebel-king-george-square-brisbane/40-days-and-40-nights-of-chocolate
2. Get out your dream kitchen scrapbook. Dreamfarm (a Brisbane-based cooking gadget desinger) is hosting a coffee morning and gadet sale this Saturday. Joanna from Dreamfarm tells me it is “not quite a petting zoo, not quite a garden party, and not quite a cafe”. So I’m not totally sure on whether there will be baby lambs (squeee!) or wee piglets (oooh!), but you can count on grabbing a new kitchen tool at a steal. Plus there’s free espresso and treats! Yay! From 10am to 1pm, at 9 Amy Street Albion (Opposite the Breakfast Creek Hotel).
3. Get your Thai on. The inaugural Thai Culture and Food Festival is on this Sunday, October 3 from 10am to 8pm. There will be a Buddhist ceremony, Thai cultural shows, Muay Thai demos, plus heaps of Thai food, dessert, and produce stalls. Visit http://www.thaifestvic.com/ for more info.
