Secret Garden

"Would you believe in a love at first sight?
Yes I'm certain that it happens all the time.
What do you see when you turn out the light?
I can't tell you, but I know it's mine.
Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends,
Mmm I get high with a little help from my friends,
Oh, I'm gonna try with a little help from my friends"
-With a little help from my friends, The Beatles

Holy Holy Heck.
I'm a little overwhelmed with how exactly to explain the amazingness of the extravagant lunch I was lucky enough to be a part of Sunday.
Perhaps I should begin the explanation with a story (I have Christmas ham as a brain right now and I'm not in a rhyming mood, so if you were keen for another poem you'll just have to sit tight.!)
My beautiful friend Christelle's other half is Jonathan Barthelmess. He is (among other things) head chief and creative genius of Manly Pavilion Dining Room and Bar. Whilst having a cocktail out of a tomato at Shady Pines one evening and giggling out of excitement for our friend Emily's recent engagement our brains began wandering for a lunch we could pull together in celebration. Jonathan casually said: "why don't you girls come up with a theme for the lunch, and I will match it to the menu" a.k.a he developed a 6 course banquet specifically and specially for us! We obviously, without hesitation, jumped straight on that band wagon (der) and here we are!
We decided on the theme 'The Secret Garden'.
Heres our adventure of fine food dining, and having the other tables continuously asking the waiters why our table was so fancy, and why we were getting special treatment! mwahaha!
Before...
30 years After!
Thank you Thank you Jonathan!!!!!!We'll be bAaAaAaAaAaACK!
If you need a venue for any kind of celebration this festive season, I strongly reccommend Manly Pavilion.
