Sculptures by the Sea, Crab Cakes, Ester Restaurant, Worlds First Instagram Hotel + more

Drink, Eat, Ms D's Week in Pics, Sydney / 6 November 2013

I was supposed to go to the Time Out Bar Award nominations at The Barber Shop. Instead, I went home sick with a chest infection, made myself some tasty (but slightly burnt) crab cakes, took some antibiotics and went to bed. Not a glamourous start to the week!



Every morning this week started with the same breakfast- toast with a bit of butter, Vegemite, avocado and sliced cucumber. The saltiness of the Vegemite sometimes overpowers the avocado but by adding cucumber the flavours are evened out and it feels a lot fresher on the palette. Ha listen to me critiquing my morning toast! I sound like a total dick. haha



I cooked Mr Curl Curl dinner. Was he appreciative? No! He teased me about how crap my couscous was and reconfirmed my own opinion that I should stick to dining out rather than cooking at home. ūüôĀ



I did a twilight tour of Sculptures By The Sea with other media and artist Sam Deal who has transformed a new Hyundai Veloster car into a bespoke sculpture, now situated in Marks Park in between Bondi and Tamarama. We finished the tour with dinner at Icebergs. I totally recommend that combo for anyone checking out the exhibition.




I had a girlie date with Miss Freakie. I was reviewing¬†the worlds first ‘Instagram’ hotel,¬†1888 Hotel in Pyrmont for my fortnightly¬†AskMen write up¬†and asked her to help me with the mini bar and movie selection. We went for dinner at Ester also and both thoroughly enjoyed the food and wine. I’d recommend you check it out.

Secret Foodies and Al Carbon hosted a Day of the Dead party at The Chippendale Hotel. There was great Mexican food, mariachi and sangria. The sugar skulls were out on mass for a fun night.

I needed a massage! This is¬†Nobo¬†he’s my main man when it comes to massage. He practices right next door to Bill’s Darlinghurst if you’re after a recommendation for healing hands.
