The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry | A Sydney Food Blog

Feast Your Eyes and Pot Luck

August 9th, 2011  |  Published in Zines  |  4 Comments

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!

    I’m totally excited by Feast Your Eyes but as a non-Facebook person I can’t see any more info. Do I need to sign up or just turn up or? Please help?

    Hi Sarah, thanks for your comment (and excitement)! I think you just turn up, no need to sign up. Here’s a link to a bigger version of the flyer:
    Hope that helps.

Hi, I'm Lee Tran Lam. When not blogging with my mouth full, I'm usually writing, presenting Local Fidelity on FBi radio, making zines, producing podcasts or continually breaking promises about how I really am gonna get through my book pile one day.

All the good pictures on this blog are by photography ace (and patient boyfriend), Will Reichelt, (all the dodgy ones can be credited to me)!

The lovely banner is by friend and ultra-talented illustrator Grace Lee.

This site redesign was made possible by the next-level generosity and expertise of Daniel Boud, whose code-tinkering ways are only outranked by his seriously inspired way with a camera.

This is a blog I do for pure fun and zero influence – there's no sponsorship, sneaky advertorial or advertising. I pay for all the food mentioned, 'cos it seems the ethical thing to do.


This is a blog about eating and drinking in Sydney, Australia (with the odd cross-border or off-topic detour). BYO appetite.
