Another meat & wine festival in Manly

Yes, the Manly Food and Wine Festival has "become more about drinking a lot of wine and eating poor quality food" (Peter Macdonald). Absent were the primitive cooking facilities incinerating meat and filling the air with thick blue smoke. The main offering seemed to be pure plonk. Generators provided the acoustic ambience. The green pine strip turned into a gigantic luna(cy) fun park. Best bit was, the road was blocked, no stinking cars on part of Manly Beach for two days! Off to have some slow food
