Jiiiissssuuuussss! You have NO idea as to how much my head hurts this morning. I’m totally tripping off my face on Grandpa right now, so please forgive me if this comes off as a bit of a ramble… Last night I hit up the launch of the Bungalow, a new restaurant and lounge in Clifton (where La Med used to be) and it was flippin’ awesome. I totally meant to just pop in, take my snaps and then bugger off at 10 on the dot as I’m flying to PE for kersfees with the fam (ja… wish me luck…), but ended up getting sucked into the best time ever.
First off, the venue is divine. They’ve got little outside tables…
…comfy little loungey-nook-type things…
…nice, big bars…
and a built-in pooletjie.
The only downer? The majority of the outside area has these slat-type things which made every stiletto-heeled chicas life feel like an episode of Fear Factor.
Anyhoo, let’s get down to peeps on the scene shall we? The place was awash with celebs, socialistas and bloggery plebs like moi. One of the more interesting peeps there was Danny K. I’d downed several glasses of champagne by the time we spoke and I have recollections of falling all over him (literally… it was those frikken slats I tell you…) and blathering on about how I dig his ‘Made to Love You’ song. (And I do, I reallly do! That tune was like MADE for drunken robot-style dancing… in your car… at taxi squad volume…)
Danny tells me he’ll be appearing in a new SHOUT music video, collaborating with various other local musos for charity, that’s set to go live in March. I begged and pleaded, but his lips were sealed in regards to which song they’ll be covering, only telling me that it’ll be ‘awesome’.
I was also totes distracted by these guys…
…and these yummy papaya-covered oysters…
Seriously girls… I wish you’d been there… we were plied with tray after tray of delish fancy pants canapes and the booze just flowed and flowed and flowed. Every time you’d lean in to air kiss someone, without fail they’d grab at your shoulder and hiss into your ear ‘OMG! Are you as fucked as I am? Can you IMAGINE what the bar tab looks like?!’ Seriously! Every time I drank my champers glass almost dry, I’d swear that I was going to put it down and go home, but then, as if by magic, is was suddenly filled up again. Sjoe!
Now lets get back to peep-stalking shall we? Here’s Lee-Ann Liebenburg looking jealousy-inducingly hot (as always) along with hubby Nicky van der Walt:
I also hung about for a bit with darling Gina (Athens) and Lara…
..and spent a bit of time with these okes:
Eventually it got to the point where I REALLY had to leave or else risked being sucked into the fun vortex that is Bungalow forever, so I did a li’l disappearing act… but not before stopping at the Wings Group choccie stand:
Susanne Reuther, the owner of the sweetie co, was there too.
You know you had a good time when you wake up the next morning with a blinding hangover next to THIS:
Thank you Marina, you gorgeous thing, (Marina’s the PR who put the bash together), you were totally right, the Bungalow launch was deffo the party of the year – I had an absolute jol!
