Darwin Day

The minds of many may be pondering romantic restaurant venues for Valentines Day, and aphrodisiacal food appropriate for a pre-coital dinner. However today is Darwin Day, which celebrates the birthday of Charles Darwin.

Darwin was apparently not averse to eating the species he studied, and his birthday is now celebrated with a phylum feast where the objective is to consume as many different species as possible. A good alternative for those who object to the commercialism of Valentines Day!?

Dining out on Valentines, packed in with flocks of other similarly cooing romantics, can appear akin to the experience of all those nesting birds on Michaelmas Cay?! Kitchenslut's recommendation for Valentines is to avoid dining out and take some inspiration from our previous post of how to cook naked for an evening of genuine shared debauchery with your lover!

restaurant rules

David Dale at the SMH is seeking help to update his 20 restaurant rules he put together 20 years ago. Are these rules still valid? Some rules are particularly relevant to Cairns and the Far North especially #3:

3. Never eat in a restaurant that is recommended in any free publication you find in your hotel room, even if the recommendation is on a different page from the ad.

Which may preclude a significant chunk of our most popular dining establishments?
