'Little Italy' night out was a blast

WELL, the World Cup season is officially here and what an event it is turning out to be - from the delicious overseas celebs visiting our shores to the yummy soccer players gracing our screens.

What a year this is turning out to be. You know we girls love beautiful things. We were invited by Peroni to experience Italy during the World Cup match between Italy and Paraguay. The dinner was hosted at the lovely Cedar Square Cofi, which was transformed into a sea of red and white designs which suited the "Little Italy" feel.

Spotted Hip-Hop star JR looking a bit jaded and tired. Seems like the boy has been getting booked for performances left, right and centre and needs a vacation. We would advise him to milk the cow as he wouldn't want to end up like TKZee by hanging on past glory a bit too long.

The event started around 7pm and most guests were on time. We were then introduced to our Italian chef for the evening, who served us delicious bites throughout. We must say we wonder how these Italians stay in such good shape. It is amazing considering the lovely food they served us. The crowd was very "upmarket funky", which isn't such a bad thing as dealing with "arbz" can be annoying at times.

Peroni was the drink of the night and by the time the match started the atmosphere had become "livelier". This was great as the Italians gave a champion's performance on the pitch even though it was a draw. It was much less humiliating than a loss, which most of the Azzuri fans feared.

The intimate crowd that was in attendance was served goodies by friendly hosts and all Italian traditions were revealed to guests.

I guess this month should be about experiencing different cultures in our country. Well, you know us glam girls love our sleep. So, after all the lovely food, dramatic soccer and great drinks, we called it a night as the warm and stylish Peroni blankets were way too comfortable and the next day was a school day. Thanks Peroni for a great evening.

Now you know how us girls like things. So, from June 24 to July 3, the 4th annual Africa On Screen Film Festival will take place in Newtown at Museum Africa, the Sci Bono Discovery Centre and Art on Main Street in the CBD.

With more than 30 films, including features, documentaries and short fims, the festival also includes a host of soccer- related films in celebration of the 2010 Fifa World Cup.

The festival includes free daily screenings and workshops at Museum Africa from 10.30am to 4.30pm.

In addition to the main programme at Museum Africa, the Sci Bono Discovery Centre will host a number of films as part of the Soccer Film Festival. Three free evening events will also take place at Arts on Main.

A unique programme of workshops will also be run daily at noon with a well thought-out schedule.

So catch us at the gig celebrating this wonderful continent we live in, Akulalawa style!
