The Observer Food Awards

Thursday, May 29, 2014
 When Gabby (My best friend)  invited me to The Observer Food Awards, the morning of the awards, I knew exactly what I was going to wear. It’s an aqua dress my mom had bought and I had never worn it.

The Observer Food Awards is an annual award show for restaurants and establishments that cook food in Jamaica. They start the evening with the award giving ceremony where restaurants which were nominated are given their prizes; then they let the patrons into another section of the venue where the different restaurants have booths set up for us to sample their delicacies. The night began with us arriving fashionably late and right on time in my book, we got there about 15 minutes before the end of the award giving ceremony. We used the time wisely to take pictures, hardly trying to blend into the crowd of the older and rich audience.

Soon enough the award ceremony wrapped up and we were guided to the booths, there were so many booths with so many different variety of foods, it was eye dazzling.

We also bucked up Sean Paul.

 Just to our luck some L’Acadco Drummers and Stilt walkers were performing in front of the Yellow Pages Directory booth.

We hung with them for a little while then continued roaming through the venue, alas our bellies got full so we circled and went back to the drummers as they were wrapping up their Kumina performance. The night was well spent as we sat talking and taking in the ambience of the fully decorated Devon House.

Give thanks for my mom’s fashion sense, friends, drumming & good food.
