A partial lunar eclipse, a night with our intergalactic dancing boots on at Dank Morass‘ Dankside of the Moon and a dinner party featuring spherical meat… cosmic coincidence?
Dankside featured sounds from The Bookery Cook’s very own Vivandiere, Bookery Cook artist Del Star (Adel Cox aka Department Deluxe), Dank Morass’ Walrii, and electrified dub by Science Project, who were launching their EP, Alchemistic (available for purchase on iTunes).
The next day involved salad turkish sandwiches, soda water, afternoon James Squire Amber Ales and craft time:

fancy dress meatball banquet
Amongst floor-length green sequin dresses could be found ‘the ghost of houseparties past’, Italian divas, Athenian goddesses, and a meatball.
For those of you thinking “that’s not Wellington St” well, it is. We moved the festivities to the front deck for the first time in 4 years. Much ambiance ensued
We followed the meatball melange with a flourless chocolate cake served with Frangelico cream. We realise Frangelico cream sounds like something you might get at the Big Pineapple or read in one of those free supermarket cooking magazines but it is delicious and goes particularly well with the cake as it involves ground hazelnuts.
Flourless chocolate cake…
