The worst day of the year: A new sausage and cider fest!

31 August 2012

Read my English text about the Worst Day of the Year here!
Mijn favoriete besteding van het weekend: met vrienden of de man naar een drank en eetfestijn. Ik mag wel voorzichtig zeggen dat ik een echte foodist ben. Waar lekker (en verantwoord) eten gaat, daar ga ik. Zondag organiseren mijn favoriete worstmaker Brandt & Levie hun eerste eigen worst fest in stadsoase Amsterdam Roest. Hun worst met lavendel of venkelzaad is zooo lekker! En dan vooral met een glaasje cider wat er op dit mini festival in overvloed geschonken zal worden.

3 redenen om naar de WORST day of the year te gaan:
– Altijd al willen weten hoe worst gemaakt wordt? Brandt & Levie gaan op de Worst day of the year live worst draaien!
– Tussen het voeren van de varkens door kun je een dansje wagen op de sounds van Kimchi Soundsystem.
– Ben je meer van de vegetarische happen? Geen zorgen! Worstmakers houden ook van vega\’s.

The Worst Day praktische info:
Locatie: Roest, Czaar Peterstraat 213B, Amsterdam.
Wanneer: 2 september van 14.00-00.00 uur.
Website: brandtenlevie.nl en amsterdamroest.nl

Meld je aan voor de Worst day of the year via de Facebook van de worstmakers.

Tot zondag! Je herkent mij aan mijn Marc by Marc Jacobs piglet necklace ;-) (geshopt in London paar weken geleden).
