  • Blind Wine Tasting Evenings with Top 12 Wines and The 41

    I’m the kinda guy who always gets a bit intimidated when it comes to wine tasting. My knowledge doesn’t stretch very far and I don’t want to make a complete fool out of myself. The one thing that always bugs me when wine tasting with a bigger group, is that’s there’s usually that one person […] More

Just needed to get that out of the way quickly, so […] More

  • Con Brio Bistro Review

    I’ve said it before and I will say it again – I’m a food sharer. There’s nothing better than ordering EVERYTHING and sharing it. Why? No orderers regrets. No missed opportunities. Happy Kayli.

    The problem with a lot of the markets out there, is that they feel copy and paste. You seen one, you seen ’em all. Boring. Maybe it’s because they’ve been around a while; maybe it’s because they have food, music, clothing, homeware and more; maybe because they are run by magical people – I dunno. But […] More
