On Saturday 18th Feb we were lucky enough to be treated to a Mexican feast followed by a birthday celebration for BOM observer Stephanie MacDonald.
The evening started with cocktails made by Lucas Koleits and Ben Thomas with the kind donation of a bottle of tequila from Adam Christensen.
The food. Where do I start on the amazing food?! Brent Dennett led the kitchen team with preparing the feast and it did not disappoint. We started with nachos followed by tacos and then enchiladas and there was plenty to go around (the leftovers the next day were just as good).
As it was Steph’s birthday, she chose for dessert lemon meringue pie and Brigid yet again impressed with her culinary skills.
After dinner we headed upstairs to the traditional piñata that was lovingly made throughout the week before. The layers of papier-mâché and the beautiful paint job made it very unique, and the home made toffee and chocolate crackles made by Brigid and Karen were a hit. Unfortunately the piñata only lasted one hit from the birthday girl before falling to the ground and exploding but it was worth the effort and lots of fun.
All in all, the night was yet another successful event put together by the many talented people on Davis Station and a big thanks go to everyone involved for making it a wonderful night, and a huge Happy Birthday to Steph who had a night to remember.
