Weekend of Debauchery

My darling friend Laura had a massive weekend of celebrations as she "welcomed herself into the dirty thirties!" We dined in style at Hellenic Republic on Lygon Street, Brunswick East on Thursday, followed by drinks at the Canary Club on Friday.

Hellenic Republic is one of George Calombaris's three restaurants in Melbourne. I have always been a huge fan of Calombaris, from his now and again presence on Ready, Steady, Cook and now a judge on MasterChef! So I was really looking forward to eating at one of his restaurants. The Press Club and Maha had been a phenomenal success, so I was excited.

Hellenic Republic is like a modern day Greek Taverna. Food was delicious, an array of Greek starters. Olives, Dolmathakia, Dips and Bread, Saganaki, Beetroot, Pickled Vegetables, Oysters and much more. Then there were swordfish off the grill, cubed morsels of fish that just melts in your mouth, definitely the highlight of the night on the table. And the compulsory lamb off the spit.

Laura and us go way back. She played matchmaker and obviously succeeded, and now a Godmother to my child. She's a delightful person, and a wonderful friend. It was hilarious how we met 11 years ago, but that's another story all together.

On the way down town, on our second night of debauchery, I was nodding off in the car. I said to Gary we're definitely getting too old for this! Two nights in a row! It's a record for us in the last few years. I wore a sexy top with a plunging neckline, showing off just a tad too much. I was too cowardly on that night to take my jacket off! I had one drink, and that was enough to make my world spin. Age is creeping up... eeps!

We had a lovely night nevertheless. Nothing like kicking back, no worries, no kids, good friends, good company, great food, and for some alcohol on tab! Ahhhh....

Two nights in a row... just a bit much.

Was meant to attend another party on Saturday, a WILD 80's themed party. Another big 3-oh. My old bones creaked. I never made it out the door.

Happy Birthday dear Laura! Happy Birthday Becky! XOXOXO

Hey there! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I'm trying to find a template or plugin
that might be able to fix this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.

Many thanks!

as though you relied on the video to make your point. You
obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence
on just posting videos to your weblog when you could
be giving us something informative to read?
