Saturday night I ventured out of my cave to have dinner with some pretty wonderful people at a pretty amazing place. The people were a collection of bloggers from Brisbane. The place was Garuva.
I planned on getting in about 6:30 to have some mocktails in the bar but at 6:15 I was still in bed cursing the change of season and allergies. My mum came up to look after lufflump and of course I had the address but couldn't physically see the restaurant until I tweeted 'help' and we were on our fourth round trip. It really is hidden. Despite my plans to arrive early, I arrived late. It's a family trait being late.
I still arrived before the food so it wasn't all bad. My first drink was a Virgin Steady Eddie which was lychees in sugar with sugar. In other words delicious and definitely not on Suger's 'to drink' list. My second drink was coke. Big drinker and big spender in one!
The restaurant has individual booths for each table. It's private, dark and romantic. Babies could be and probably are conceived there. Rather than feel romantic to me at the time I just wanted to curl up and go to sleep especially after dinner.

The food was delicious and we all shared the meals. As far as I could tell there was plenty of food. I wasn't very hungry but what I ate was very nice.
The best of the night was the company though. Meeting new bloggers and seeing old faces again is always wonderful. We all come from different walks of life, live different lives yet we all have blogging in common. No questions about what blogging is, no worrying that you are being anti-social tweeting what you are doing, no worries about taking photos of everything. It's comfortable.
