Win Tickets to Queenies' Bob Marley Birthday Feast

A Jamaican birthday banquet next Wednesday night in Surry Hills.

If you don't like Bob Marley then you actually have no soul. In what I believe is proof of this fact, I just said "Guess what time it is? It's Bob Marley time!" in the office and people actually cheered. No one has ever cheered at anything I have ever said before. Queenies — our favourite local pan-tropical themed eatery (only local pan-tropical themed eatery?) — is celebrating what would have been the freedom fighter/stoner icon's birthday with a big old Jamaican feast. 

The diner, which sits on top of The Forresters pub in Surry Hills, is putting on a one-off four-course meal created just for the event by some very inventive and witty chefs. Held next Wednesday 6 February, taste sensations and positive vibes are guaranteed. For just $40 a head, you'll enjoy shares, snacks, a main and a desert comprised of meals with great titles such as Cheer Up Cucumber, Goat Stand Up Patties, and Shrimp Shake Down Party. There is even a desert called Sweet Herb Sandwich. Appropriate. On the night, there will be frozen drink specials PLUS Bob Marley's greatest hits will soothe your soul. Yeah mon. 

To make a booking email bookings@queenies.com.au or phone 9212 3035. Be quick though, we reckon this one's going to sell out faster than you can say "420".

Now for the exciting news — we've got a double pass to the feast to give away! The competition is open to Australian residents over the age of 18 (ID will be required upon entry) and will run until 5pm AEDT on Monday February 4, 2013. By filling in the form, you'll be signed up to our newsletter. If you've already signed up (nice work), then please enter your email below anyway so that you go in the chance to win (we won't email you twice or give your details away). Good luck!
