La Zuppa What’s Your Flavour? Comp – Until July 31

I’m a big soup fan. Perhaps it’s because it’s a good vehicle for bread; perhaps it’s because I can annoy my boyfriend with the slurping noises I make while I eat it. If you’re into soup too, La Zuppa is giving you a chance to shape the future of one of its products. Come up with a flavour you’d like to see in the 2012 La Zuppa range; if your idea wins, you’ll get a trip to Italy and some cold hard cash! Enter via the La Zuppa facebook page before July 31.

2012 Pure Bier Fest – Until May 31

My love affair with German beer started in the summer of ’10. It was a steamy 38c when I stumbled into a bottle shop in Berlin, dying for something cold to quench my thirst. I grabbed something out of the fridge, barely looking at the label (it was a Weihenstephaner). Soon after I popped that sucker open and it wasn’t too long before I was bowing to the refreshing glory that is German wheat beer.

Understandably, then, I am BUMMED I am going to miss out on the Pure Bier Fest, held at the Bavarian Bier Cafe until May 31. They’re celebrating the purity and excellence of German beer with a great lineup of events – both educational and fun. Check out the Bavarian Bier Cafe’s website for the full details.
