Milliner Judy Bentinck made a 4 foot hat shaped like an ice cream cone (mesh+satin) in just 6 weeks. And the added brilliance is that it includes with real chocolate for snacking! Hats off to you Judy Bentnick! (sorry, I couldn't resist that one!) Wow. Suddenly horse races sound more intriguing than they were just moments ago. Anyone wanna take me on a date to next years Ascot Races??
Other favorites include the blue cheese and grapes hat, the toilet seat/bathtub hat and the granny chic pony/button/fake flowers hat!
More crazy amazing hats here and here

Watermelon rind ginger salad! Curry pasta salad! Three types of hummus! Pap chakalaka! Ohh yeah and that's only plate one of this African inspired buffet goodness.
I learned two important things on my most recent visit #1: pap chakalaka is not a fake African name its real, its yummy and its fun to say. #2: Apparently this place is not as americanized (duh, its at disney) as I thought because my dinner date was freaking out for some of the dishes. I consider him to be a credible source since he grew up all around the said continent. Seriously, I need to learn how to make the watermelon rind salad since I'm completely addicted now. Disclaimer: I highly recommend having a place to nap immediately post gorge, because a seriously intense food coma is guaranteed.
