Sydney Mardi Gras - Surry Hills Walk

Thanks to our guests and restaurants for last weeks Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras  Festival dining walk of Surry Hills. We were a small but enthusiastic group.of food lovers who loved all our courses. Very international too with a Sydney-based couple originally from LA, a Hamburg resident - who is currently globe trotting and a Chinese/Australian plus the (originally) Kiwi guide!

We enjoyed a vigorous discourse about Sydney's lockout laws - consensus: needs a major re-think! And discovering new cocktails - rum seems to be the flavour of this summer.

Thanks to Golden Age Cinema & Bar Longrain Sydney Baccomatto Osteria and Rosie Campbell's for hosting and feeding us so well.
