So you thought ‘Mad March’ was over? Maybe you’re feeling those heavy post-festival season blues? Have you heard people making silly remarks about nothing happening in Adelaide for another year?  

Fear not my friends! East End Wine Down is back. After last years sell-out event, this Saturday, East End Cellars will once again be turning Vardon Avenue in the city into a wine tasting wonderland.

And so it begins.

Another year, another festival season. Can’t you just feel it in the air?

It all started a few months ago…we saw those pink posters pasted upon the walls, the guide began to hit the doorsteps of our favourite city establishments, the box office took up residence in Rundle Mall and most exciting of all, the fence was erected around the fairylit wonderland which is the Garden of Unearthly Delights

It’s Fringe time baby. Strap yourself in.

Say goodbye to your liver, drain your bank account and dust off your dancing shoes.

Let’s get weird.

A couple of weeks ago I received a phone call from a particularly charming Englishman I know. He spoke quickly and fabulously and told me about an event coming up at Penny’s Hill Winery for the Melbourne Cup. 

I heard the words ‘champagne’, ‘canapes’ ‘wine’, ‘three courses’, ‘Africola‘, ‘fashion’ and ‘horses’. ACTUAL REAL LIFE HORSES. 

My face was essentially doing that little ‘oh my god’, hands on cheeks, Home Alone emoji. 

(Will they let me pat the ponies?)

As the Royal Adelaide Show comes to an end for another year and I listened to the fireworks from my balcony, I sat and reminisced about the rite of passage we should all experience as Adelaidians.

I must admit, I didn’t actually go to the show this year (because I have a mortgage), but I think some things never change, and there are some pretty universal experiences we all go through during those ten magical days in September. 

BAROSSA GOURMET WEEKEND 2015 – A DAY THAT WAS

c o n s u m e d

I’ll be honest, I can’t remember the last time I was awake before sunrise. Ordinarily, I couldn’t think of anything worse, but today was different. I woke up with the feelings reminiscent of a kid on Christmas day, but instead of the anticipation of that Barbie camper trailer I’d been dreaming of, I awoke with thoughts that within a couple of hours I’d be eating breakfast by an open wood fire in the Barossa Valley.

Itinerary planned – check. iPhone and camera charged – check. Umbrella, lipstick and sunglasses packed – check. Double shot flat white – CHECK. 

I picked up my partner in crime, Daniel (the man behind the lens) and we were on our way, Barossa bound.
