Mobile Cocktail Bar, Penis Straws and a Topless Waiter – Crystal’s Bachelorette Party

Crystal's Hen's Night

When you arrive at a party, and a topless waiter hands you an appletini, you know the girls have planned a good night! We’d all put in $65 to cover costs and as you will see, it went a long way!

Crystal's Hen's Night

We had a mobile cocktail bar serving us all night from A wonderful idea I do believe!

There were even mocktails for those not drinking :)
(Still to be consumed with a penis straw though!)

Anna had cooked up storm, with many things to nibble on, and clearly labelled as to whether they were gluten or dairy free :)

Google #CityExperts “Sampling Sydney” Event

Google #cityexperts event - Sampling Sydney

So, Google managed to lure me out of hibernation and down to Sydney for one of their #CityExperts events last week at the Cell Block Theatre.

I’m fairly certain the main idea is to liquor us up, have some fun, and get us posting reviews through Google plus so that we can help pad out their reviews list.

The West Winds gin cocktails – I think they were with grapefruit which made for a very citrussy evening! You can get the less premium one at Dan Murphy’s for about $55 a bottle.

Which they successfully did, with Gin, Beer and Cider sampling, getting to know you networking bingo, and the fun of making a jar of preserved lemons to take home and show off.

The lemon preserving was offered by Cornersmith which is a picklery and cafe in Marrickville. They offer courses in preserving fruits and veges, breadmaking and more.

There was also sampling of their pickles throughout the evening…. I was fascinated with the sweet spiced pickled grapes – very much the taste of your sweet spiced gherkins, but with a grape texture! I’d love to give these a go one day!

Geddit? Sydney-Cider? :p

We were provided with foam letters to exchange for cider and beer from Sydney Brewery…. to me, this meant much cider – it was actually bottled that DAY!

All in all, I had a fun evening, I think I’ll try to get my review numbers up on Google so I get invited to another day or night out, but we’ll see how far my enthusiasm extends!

Til then, I can’t wait for my lemons to preserve so I can use them in my Moroccan Lamb!

Sydney Good Food and Wine Show

I received my ticket to the Good Food and Wine Show from Chobani. It is, like, the most awesome Greek yoghurt out there. Seriously.

I was supposed to go with friends to the Good Food and Wine show. But they were sicked with the cold that’s been going around, and only let me know an hour before we were meant to meet *sadface* So, I was left to wander and sample on my own. Here are my thoughts…

Ahem…. Maybe I don’t share my thoughts on that pic ;)

Skinny Girl Cocktails were vamping it up, with skinny girls in mini skirts, and offering samples of their cocktails and also massages (not that I could be bothered waiting!). The Margarita was good. Ready to drink, with some rimming salt ;)

I dabbled in some Avocado oil. Hmmm… Think I’ll stick with Olive for the price…

There was a crapload of cider for sampling. Of which I tried none :(

I had a good chat to the people of Rowie’s Cakes about how great it was that they were supplying to the Qantas QFML and VGML range :) And their ANZAC bikkies were awesome.

Mmm More Moo Burgers at Manly – Foodblogger Tasting Dinner

Moo Gourmet Burgers, Manly
Bubbly on arrival? I’m your girl!

Twas a miserable Sydney evening. Rain, scary on the roads, rocky on the Ferry, but somehow the five of us made it to Moo at Manly to try some of their awesome burgers.

Somehow I made it there about 6:45pm, for a 6pm start! I JUST missed the ferry that would have gotten me to Manly at six. It wasn’t to be.

Moo Gourmet Burgers, Manly

To start was chips, and the Wagyu burger. Mine on the gluten free bun. (17 of their 20 burgers can be done gluten free!!) Us girls trying to figure out how much to eat to have room for the rest! The onions were sweet, the patties devine!!!!

Moo Gourmet Burgers, Manly

The others had some Moo Pale Ales ($8.50) with their burgers. I stuck with the bubbles ;)

Then arrived a selection of milkshake samples. I drank this one, the Cow in Mud – because it was Baylies and Frangelico and other awesome cocktail ingredients ;) Yes, I paid for it later!!!

Then came the roo burger, which an American friend had tried and recommended the other weekend. It was nice, but I concentrated on the yummy beetroot relish and the pattie as I was sooooo full at this point!

A dessert of ‘Mookies’ was brought out… with gooey dark and white chocolate, baked on the day. The other girls shared one and we all took some home. I met a friend for drinks on the way home and he was happy with my cookie offerings!
