I’m not yet in any state to talk coherently about last night. Until I do, please have a look at some of my pictures of what was another terrifyingly full, terrifyingly fun and terrifyingly good evening at the Old Biscuit Mill.
A beautiful short video of March’s We ❤ Real Beer Fest by Craig Hunter Parker. The next one - a celebration of all that is good about beer and food in our sometimes fraught and taxing existences - is this Friday, 30 September at the Old Biscuit Mill.
You’d be mad to miss it.
Toffie Food Festival is happening this weekend at Cape Town City Hall. Day tickets are R50; VIP all-access passes are R1500.
Wonder which ticket I’ll be buying?
It’s not all bad though: that Julie chick from that Julie & Julia movie will be giving a talk, amongst other great things, so I suggest, if you have a grand and a half burning a hole in your trousers, you pick up one of the last tickets remaining at http://toffie.co.za/ ! The ticket also includes 5 meals a day (!) and lots of workshops and great conferences. If I was a yuppie, I’d definitely go. Unfortunately I have no job (this relegates me to the “hipster” demographic) and thus I cannot attend all that great stuff.
The reason I’ll be going, in lieu of Julia Child’s would-be-protegé? It seems that lots of great craft brewers and “ye olde enemy”, a.k.a. The South African Breweries Ltd., will be selling some specialist brews at the festival, and I’ll be damned if I’m not going to try them! Also my housemate likes buildings and City Hall is a building so I guess he’ll want to go too. Architects, you know?
So: see you there?
