The other night we were lucky enough to attend an old bandmate of Dons' 50th birthday celebration at the Mudbrick Cafe on Waiheke. Unfortunately this has been the worst summer EVER here in NZ with almost constant rain and gloom and barely any sun. That night was no exception. However the Mudbrick Cafe is a beautiful place in itself and boosts spectacular views (when you can see them through the rain!). I had never met the birthday girl but she sure knows how to put on a bash! As she still lives in England there was a pretty decent contingent of people who had followed her over here to celebrate her birthday. I'll start with the food (which was amazing) then follow with photos of people.
I totally forgot to get photos of the dessert and the ones I got of the entree and mains were a bit shadowed BUT you should be able to get an idea of the calibre of the food and the night. We started with Pimms, Beer etc and had a lovely choice of Waiheke (I don't remember the name sorry) Pinot Noir or Savingnon Blanc to have with our meal.
