Beer and BBQ’d Meats of the World

The Beer and BBQ’d Meats of the World day (also know as the Multicultural Festival) was another grand success when I left the scene after imbibing as many continents as I could find, both food and beer wise.

Hope everyone else had as good a day/night as I did.

See you next year.

a Dutch couple who…had never seen anything like that in their lives back home in Holland.

They mustn’t get out much.

I made a bee line for the russian pelminis – just awesome! I went there when it started, so the crowd wasn’t too bad and plus all the german beers were available. Beer before lunch always goes down a treat.

Clown Killer, it doesn’t matter to me if they are really Dutch pancakes or not, they still taste damn good. Great event and so much fun- after being in Europe last year it was nice to be able to have some Polish Zwyiec (Or however you spell it) and some Czech beers as well. Then there is the German beers as well. Had a great time- but like the OP with the slideshow you have to wonder about the people that still went to the Australian pub.

Didn’t make it out yesterday, is it on today as well?

Danish pancakes ….. yummm

Danish or Dutch? A couple of years ago we went with a Dutch couple who were visiting at the time. They were very curious about the extremely popular Dutch Pancake van given that they had never seen anything like that in their lives back home in Holland.

I enjoyed the food and beer (oh,my aching head :)!) but I was thinking part of the problem yesterday was that as the crowds get bigger each year, it becomes less and less comfortable.

One solution to this might be to close off part of Northbourne Avenue for the Saturday – it would allow much more space to be used, bring the Sydeny and Melbourne buildings into play, and bring some much needed life into City West. I’d be interested to know what other people think of this idea…

Another thing – I felt very sorry for any infants or young kids still there at 8pm or so last night. It’s bad enough trying to push a pram through a crowd like that, or to encourage a small child to hold one’s hand through a sea of adult legs….but to keep the little tackers out so late is a bit much, I think…especially when the crowd is pumped up with booze by that stage.

I ate so many dates in the middle eastern section.

don’t tell the government that it is actually fun, they’ll cancel it…

Instead say that it was a superb interaction between cultures and that you now have a profound and deep understanding, and empathy for other cultures foreign to us decadent western types.

too late, his chief minstrelness was there yesterday – gave me a nod and a smile when i addressed him by his title…

Well, lines, lots of very slow moving long lines, nowhere near enough bins and hardly any toilets were highlights for this year. The German beer tent ran out of most stocks of beer by 4.30pm, then almost many other places started running out of food and drinks also (don’t they know how many people to expect?). But the Plonk guys had no queues and good tasty beer, and food, so we just planted ourselves there after doing a lap to show some O/S visitors the sheep 🙂

All up, pretty poorly organised compared to previous years but still fun to be there!

Danish pancakes ….. yummm
that stand probably has the longest lines every year
Lovely day out

Best day ever! Did anyone else try the kava? How awesome! (sorry can only speak in adjectives)

Actually, i’m just jealous, i couldn’t get there due to other, previous engagements… 😉

Superb event – beer and barbecue in the name of multiculturalism works for me!!

SSSHHHHHHHH. Don’t let on that we actually love the Multicultral Festival (fondly known as The Alcoholic Frolic) or it will be cancelled.
