Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Killer Crocs!

When I was 18, to rebel against the world my parents had created, I shaved a half Mohawk, encouraged my hair to stand on end, grew my armpit hair, wore torn black rags, too much eyeliner and wore 18-hole Dr. Martens boots. These days, to give their parents the shits, the kids are wearing Crocs. With socks. They’re going for comfort.

Tomorrow night’s Foodie Friday, touted as Tweed’s biggest dinner party, is filling tables fast.

With 25 stalls offering $5 and $10 gourmet sample plates, Foodie Friday is a progressive dining adventure of tantalising tastes and textures.

From 6pm you can line up, purchase the plate of your choice and, if you’ve been lucky enough to score a table (see below), take it back and tuck in.

Even if you haven’t got it together to book in advance, toss a rug in the car and have a picnic on the lawns at the Murwillumbah Showground.

To top off the evening, local entertainers will keep diners tapping their toes including the divine Jayne Henry, the Shameless O’Hooligans and Lil’Fi and her five-piece jazz and blues band.

The event is free to enter. However, if groups want to book a table of 10 there is $50 table-and-chair hire fee. All booked tables will be in the Branding Rail, allowing patrons to consume alcohol at their tables. Guests are invited to dress their tables and go in the draw for great prizes.

Other tables will be available outside the Branding Rail in an alcohol-free zone. It’s first in best dressed for the showground tables outside the Branding Rail as well as plenty of grassed area to lay a picnic rug.

Foodie Friday is a wastewise event and guests are encouraged to be conscious of using the right bin to dispose of their waste.

Foodie Friday is one event in a four-day foodie festival. For further information or to book any Tweed Food Fest events, please visit www.tweedfoodiefest.com.au or call Kerry on 0401 871 096.
