My Quentin Tarantino Themed Sydney Food Blogger Meet Up

25 May 2011, 01:31

OH HAI! Sorry for not posting on Monday dudes but my early birthday/Sydney food blogger meet up was on the weekend and someone had a little too much happy juice heh heh so anyways ever since I watched Gilmore Girls all those year ago, I’ve always wanted a Quentin Tarantino themed party just so I could dress as Kill Bill’s crazy Gogo Yubari. As is fast becoming tradition, I decided to combine my b’day with a meet up with the fabulous Sydney food bloggers at Bartinos Tapas Bar (9 Union St, Pyrmont). (Mad props to Will for the photos, all other images as credited.)

Of course there was foods! But um was busy chatting with everyone so not too many photos my bad…

Hiyah! Like my mace? Super last minute I realised I couldn’t find a mace so I bought a bouncy ball from a toy store and painted it in silver and chain is from Bunnings.

Some norty peeps photobombing haha

Such concentration…

Of course it ain’t a night at Bartinos without his crazy Cachaça!
