Last night I popped into the Cape Town blogger’s ‘Tweet Up’ held at The Grand Daddy hotel in Long Street.
The place was jam packed, but the the first person I ran into happened to be Mark, an old mate from my Jupiter Drawing Room days. He used to be an account exec on the Woolies team, but has since run off to cooking school so as to pursue his dream of becoming a pastry chef. (Nobody was surprised… Dude used to make having a birthday at the agency, like, The Best Thing Ever by going out of his way to make you a cake…) Still, Mark wasn’t the only bake nut on the scene… darling Kath, she of KathCake, was also in the house.
mentalistic kind enough to offer to bake cupcakes for the crowd and had spent all of the night before whipping up a good 80 vanilla cupcakes with Amarula-infused icing. Check it out this pic I nicked off her mate Bobbylicious’ blog as it was better than the one I snapped:
Later, more Jupitarians rocked up, namely Clouds ‘The Whip’ Drummond, (my ex traffic manger/slave driver) and art director Jacki Little. Both chicas also happen to be avid bloggers, writing And Lollipops and The Girl with the Blue Eyes respectively.
Now if there’s only one thing you need to know about Clouds, its this… girl could be suffering from the plague and a broken rib, yet she’ll still be dripping in bling and rocking six inch stillettos… that’s just how she rolls… Thus, it was only natural that I expected she’d attend a do like this in a pair of ridiculously awesome statement-making shoes – something like diamond-encrusted sling backs with wings a la peacock feathers… so when I spotted her rather demure-looking black pumps, the first thing I said was ‘Ag nee biets, I expected more from you…’
And then she lifted her sole…
Once we settled into a corner of the room, we got busy with Patron shooters…
At some point Relax with Dax popped up too, but the details of his arrival are fuzzy.
Despite experiencing the hangover from hell for the better part of today, this was a fun, worthwhile night out… and waking up to find a brownie under my pillow (and next to loo… as well as on the floor of the lounge…) sweetened things up even further.
