Sid Howard's 85th Birthday

Through his work, my partner gets these wonderful reports of impending fireworks in the Opera House precinct. So last night we trotted out to take a look at a 20 minute display; a display which, (as we found out at the last minute), was put on to celebrate Sid Howard's 85th Anniversary. Knowing it was a display FOR Sydney's main fireworks company meant we KNEW it would be worthwhile. We were not disappointed!

Not only did we get fireworks, we also got to attend a leaving function for a long serving staff member, which meant - you guessed it - canapes by Opera Point Events! Alongside some lovely caramelised onion parcels and French Brie, we got some sweet treats (unusual in the world of canape dining, I tell you). The passionfruit trifles in shot glasses were lovely with layers of cake, cream and jelly; but I preferred the cinnamon donuts which you dipped into chocolate sauce - all served by staff in black and whites!

So it was with champagne, (Leftbank, and quite drinkable by Opera House standards), in hand that we adjourned to the terrace to watch the sky light up, and evesdrop on the soundtrack (sadly a tad predictable) from the Sid Howard function. It was just like being there!
