I don’t usually like third birthday parties. I don’t like children putting food in their mouth and spitting it back into the bowl they picked it out of when they don’t like it. I don’t like children coming to you crying and not being able t…o understand what they are saying or who was at fault for hurting them. I don’t like parents who think that a children’s birthday party is free babysitting for a couple of hours and your stuck managing 30 or more children with limited help. However, the third birthday party of the Shirt Bar held on 15 May 2014 was a little different. It had the chocolate crackles, the fairy bread and the cup cakes that you would expect at a third birthday but there were not the children you would expect at a third birthday party. Instead there was whisky tasting by High West Distillery, alcoholic punch, shirts selling at a discounted price and goodie bags with a confused mixture of Little Creatures Brewing beer and lollies. Well, at least this third birthday party was more to my liking. See More
Wednesday nights just got a whole lot better for the girls of Sydney. The Zeta Bar has gone up a notch to the usual free champers of other establishments and is offering free Bellinis and oysters for girls from 5:30pm to 7pm. With this type… of offering, Wednesday nights will become the new Thursday nights. However, the word is not quite out there yet (judging from last nights crowd) and it will probably be a quiet place just for girls until the boys figure it out and are hot on their heels. See More
In the 8th grade I had a quiz in my French class and no one knew the word for pineapple in French. At the end of the quiz, the teacher told us it was the word ananas. One by one we all proclaimed that it was the same word in whatever European language we spoke at home – Greek, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese etc. Then one girl stated it was the same in Hindi. We looked at her in surprise. She looked back at us and questioned us whether pineapples normally grow in Europe. Well, pineapples aren’t from Europe but neither are they indigenous to India. They come from South America.
Coincidently, there is a bar and restaurant in Sydney called Ananas Bar & Brasserie. However, it is not a South American Restaurant as you would logically assume. It is a contemporary French Mediterranean bar and restaurant and at its Meet the Team – Bar Ananas Relaunch Party held on 15 May 2014 it showed us just how good their food and drinks really are. They have just recently recruited an A-List of bartenders from bars such as Eau de Vie and Shady Pines. Their talented team of Rodrigo Vega, Charlie Ainsbury, Alex Grossett, Daniel Mussen, Mitch Horrocks and Rob Arcari where wooing us all night with cocktails which included their signature pineapple julep while the kitchen brought out one hatted delicacies that put all other bars who serve regular pub food to shame.
