Is there any better food, particularly on a fragile Sunday, than Guilty Pleasures food?

The Beatyard & Toejam presents The Eatyard at The Bernard Shaw, which will be a four day food gathering at the Portobello pub from this Thursday the 27th right through til Sunday the 30th, coinciding with the wider weekender of The Beatyard.

Each day of The Eatyard has a delectable theme, with Thursday seeing the wonderful people behind the permanent cafe at The Bernard Shaw serving up their famous Arrosticini Lamb Skewers in a BBQ setting from 6 to 9pm. Friday night sees extreme foodie Oisin Davis hosting a Chilli Cookout, while Saturday The Bernard Shaw will be home to The Big Blue Banquet where the Big Blue Bus folk will serve out an autumnal feast.

On Sunday, I have the honour of closing up the four day foodie festivities by hosting a Guilty Pleasures day. Myself and The Bernard Shaw folk have rounded up some of our favourite guilty pleasures and on the day you’ll be able to recover from a weekend’s indulgences and, it being a Sunday night of a Bank Holiday, you’ll have the guilty pleasure of staying out late on a school night. We’ll be hosting the event from 2pm til 7pm, with myself and my boy Nialler9 spinning some Guilty Pleasure cheese-tastic tunes throughout the day.

Foodwise, there’ll be the Big Blue Bus Full Irish Calzone special (breakfast in a pizza? ZNOMZ) and the Any-way-U-Like BBBBQ Guilt Burger Grill (think Cute Baby Lamb Burgers). We’ll have Don Gustavo’s Mexico lunch brunch (a bit of spice to clear your senses) and Natasha’s Living Food’s sweet stall (her raw chocolate is the most indulgent in town). There’ll also be Phoebe’s Hot B Bar with Bloody Marys, Hot Toddies, Black Velvet, Hot Whiskey, and a full bar for all your hair of the dog needs.

It’s going to be awesomesauce.
