For our engagement, two of our friends bought A and I dinner at Tharens with 11 of our closest friends.

Tharens is a cosy little themed restaurant in Kings Cross.

As soon as I walked into Tharens and was greeted by a waitress dressed as Snow White, I knew it was going to be a good night! All around the restaurant and at the table were a  plethora of hats, wigs and feather bowers and I am pretty confident in saying that we tried most of them on!

First hats with bestie

 Where'd I go??

After all of our guests had arrived and we settled in, the waitress bought garlic bread and salad to the table, and then asked us to pick one entree and one main each. The choices were great. I had the prosciutto wrapped chicken with bocconcini for an entree and the three cheese (mmm I love cheese) chicken for the main.

I'm a happy little Vegemite!

The food was deeeelicious! As Tharens is a themed restaurant, I have to be honest, I was not expecting much at all from the food. I thought the food would be average, but the entertainment would make up for it. I was wrong. The food was yummy and plentiful. So were the many many alcoholic drinks we consumed that night (as can be seen by the pictures) haha.

During the courses we were entertained by a Magician called Dodgy Dave, who got us involved in a variety of card tricks. He even managed to make a hanky disappear into his hand and come out in A's fly! He was awesome and a good character.

 pulling out the hanky lol

Drunken Witch

After dinner the old school tunes were cranked up a bit more, but then a COP walked in... ..... a naughty COP!!! The party next to ours was a birthday party and they had hired a stripper. I had made friends with that table throughout the night and so one of the girls grabbed me for pole position before the action started. Thank you honey!! A kept trying to shield my innocent eyes. Bless him.

hello police man!

After the stripper cleared we continued dancing in the restaurant with our funny hats on until we decided we all needed to go home. We had drank ourselves to bedtime.

Birthday hat!

All in all it was a great night!! The staff at Tharens were so attentive and fun, everyone enjoyed themselves and I would go back there any day!

Until next time, here are some more drunken hat photos :)
