9 Union Street, Pyrmont NSW 2009
Chocolate meets Tarantino
Chocolatesuze aka Gogo Yubari is one of Sydney’s biggest sugar lovers and celebrated her 28th birthday with an invitation to food bloggers to be part of her ‘Quentin Tarantino’ themed party. Receiving over 60 RSVPs it was a night of drinks and canapés with amusing dressups and some mischievous out-of-control ‘take no prisoners’ chocolate cake fighting. It was a great chance to meet up with many other bloggers in person and to put a face to a name, blog website or twitter handle. I thought the best costume prize should go to Rachel from The Creamy Middles who came as The Bride in Kill Bill complete with blood stained face, body and wedding dress. I heard she apparently walked to the event all the way from Kings Cross to Pyrmont — OMG. Second prize for commitment to the theme should go to Simon Park from who shaved his head to be Marsellus Wallace from Pulp Fiction, minus the gimp mouth ball strap, I think.
Susan provided a generous bar tab and canapés for guests to enjoy. I really like the scallops which were served in a thai curry sauce I think and the oysters with a champagne jelly were a close second of the night. The funniest moment of the night for me was when I was about to take a photo of a group when Susan suddenly jumped into my shot screaming with laughter as the flash went off creating a hilarious photobomb — check out the funny photo result below. I hope the birthday celebrations were a great night for all that attended and I look forward to hearing all about how the chocolate shenanigans started in the first place which left many with a face full of chocolate.
