Wow, check out that weather – we’re crossing every available digit that it holds out for tomorrow’s For Food’s Sake cook out barbecue in Toner’s weird and wonderful and very large beer garden off Baggot Street Lower. (3pm–7pm for those who don’t know about it: see full details on my previous post and our Facebook page.)
The key thing you need to know is that we’re supplying the barbecues, you’re supplying (and cooking) the food. And it’s free, with a suggested donation of €2 to cover fuel costs etc.
It’s all shaping up very nicely, even without the glorious weather. We were thinking it’d be fun to document all the hard work we know you’re all putting into preparing whatever food you’re gonna bring along to cook (although turning up with a pack of Superquinn sausages is also fine).
So we’re running a competition for the best food photo from the day.
All you’ll need to do is tweet your best food pix tomorrow with the hastag, #FFS_BBQ. Those discerning fellas from Le Cool are gonna choose the best ones from the day and we’ll be giving out some great prizes:
Superquinn (who are re-running their Steak and Wine Sale at the mo, in case you wanted to grab a humdinger hunk of meat for tomorrow) have very kindly given us a €100 voucher as first prize. The winner may not have time to catch their current sale (which ends Tuesday) but there’s always great wines worth picking up, and you could use €8 of it to try their limited edition burger BBQ package, which includes a 4-pack of their new Superquinn Ultimate Steak Burger (6oz burgers based on prime Irish Hereford beef), a 4-pack of Superquinn buns and Superquinn Sliced Red or White Cheddar.
And for the runner-up we’ll have a month’s supply of Vita Coco natural coconut water, which apparently is all the rage with the celebs these days and just the ticket for rehydration – from either all the sun we deserve to get or all the drink we’ll resort to if we don’t.
How’s about that for looking after your every need?
Now all you have to do is come along. Oh and bring some gorgeous food. And of course take photos and tweet them with the #FFS_BBQ hashtag.
