Brickventures, more adventures and smashed peas at Wide Open Road

YOU GUYS.  LEGO EXHIBITION!

(and lots and lots of photos)

Brickventures was held at the Royal Exhibition Building this weekend.  This was our nice leisurely stroll up to the entrance doors:

I’d love to live inside a place like this.  I’d call it “Crash Landed Mothership from Planet Rubiksoid”:

…and this was our view when we turned the corner.  Totally brilliant idea of mine to arrive early and get a spot near the doors, out of the sun.  Tootes brill:

You know that scene in Flying High/Airplane where the woman is hysterical and everyone is lining up?

Mega coolness (that includes the tie and the pinafore). How cool to score a modelling gig like this:

When we left, Husband took Arthur and DeeW off to my in laws for the rest of the day so I could go home and get some work done without interruption.  But you know how it is with beautiful sunny days and an open door to an op shop:

I was starving and decided on Wide Open Road for brunch.  I’ve been wanting to go back to try the smashed peas dish ever since I visited WOR and tried those delicious slow cooked beans.  I walked in and noticed about five people with the smashed peas on sourdough with wild rice tabouleh and maple walnuts.  Pretty good stuff obviously!  And it did not disappoint:

Absolutely delicious!  I left the maple walnuts until last.  I’m so in love with maple walnuts.  Everything was juuust right.  So with a nice full belly I waddled to the tram stop because I suddenly felt too happy-lazy to go to Savers.

So all in all, a fabulous morning with hundreds of fellow geeks, followed by fabulous strolling about town with camera in hand and finished with a fabulous meal.  Fab fab fab!

May your news be fab news, and good day  🙂
