Hey, here’s a shameless mention of a few things I’m part of.
If you turn up to Feast Your Eyes, you’ll find a bar recipe booklet with contributions by Levins (The Dip), Spod, We Buy Your Kids, Jake Stone, Elmo Keep and many more; some of the accompanying illustrations will be available as artwork; there’ll be music (including my low-level DJing/attempts to brainwash everyone into wearing away their dancing shoes) and food-as-bribery to entice you if the preceding drawcards aren’t enough. I’m writing the intro to the recipe booklet, too.
It’s on Wednesday August 17 at The World Bar (home to the about-to-be-unveiled Apothecary Bar), 24 Bayswater Rd, Kings Cross, from 7-10pm. The whole night doubles as the launch for the food section of The Brag, as well.
Nearby at FBi Social, a new weekly night is making a play for your diary. Pot Luck is a mix of “readings, skits, bingo, art installations, film, crafternoons, astrologers”. It launches this Friday with a quiz, live music, a giant chess set (!) and stories from Penguin Plays Rough. Next week, Friday 19, there’ll be a mini zine fair, and yes, I’ll be shilling my food zine. So drop by FBi Social, Level 2 at the Kings Cross Hotel, 248 William St, Kings Cross, if you’re curious.
And I promise, there’ll be a normal post soon!
