I went to the Art Gallery of NSW today to see the Margaret Preston retrospective. Her works are quite useful to photobloggers as she painted alot of really good still lifes... So if you live in Sydney get to the exhibition, it is on til the 23rd of October 2005.
BUT if you go to the Museum, DO NOT GO to the w\Woolloomooloo Bay Hotel for lunch. I had heard it was supposed to be ok, my Mother and Oma had both been there before and been happy but not today. We wanted a warm nourishing lunch, so when we spied the Minestrone soup on the menu we were sold, it was $8 and came with turkish bread. The waiters came to the table carrying 3 large bowls and placed them in front of us, we looked in the bowl and said "What is this?". It was a lot of water red liquid with finely diced capsicum, broccoli and celery, that's it. Well, except for Oma who had a fly! YUCK! We stirred the soup, where is the pasta? Where are the beans? Why is this so watery. We had a mouthful and almost spat it back out, it was that salty. It was totally inedible. Mum took Oma's soup back for her and complained about the fly, she got her money back, when she said it was so salty that it was inedible she received a blank stare. This is when I thought , I am going to blog about this and tell EVERYONE! I don't know why it was so bad... but I know we wont be going back!
