This weekend’s must do – Swansea Street Feasts. #SuperYum 29/06/13

I do love getting out on my bike, trundling down Clyne Valley and riding down the Promenade with anything in Swansea Bay easily accessible, from Mumbles to the Marina.  If there is anything I love more than getting out on my bike, it is good food!  So I was really pleased back in April when I heard about the first Swansea Street Feast event.  Organised by ‘Fired Up Feasts’ and held at the 360 watersports centre on the Promenade opposite St. Helens rugby ground, it is Swansea’s first street food festival.

Street food is about showcasing world flavours and providing customers with top quality food at take away prices.  This event was certainly that with the biggest problem being which food should I buy, because apparently you can’t eat it all.  In the words of Homer Simpson ‘that sounds like a wager’!

It was amazing sunny back in April and that is when Swansea Bay is at its best.  In the sun combined with the great food and music the atmosphere was great. So great in fact they are doing it again this weekend – Saturday 29th June @ 360 16:00 – 21:00.

The promoters promise that again this will be an awesome event with a great atmosphere, numerous food stands, live music and covered seating incase of rain.  All weathers, DimExcuses, I like the thinking.

Great food vendors include The Munch Box, Samosaco, Fired up Feasts, Taste of Persia, and Streetballs.  Sorry if I left anyone out, please leave your business details in the comments below.

So what are you waiting for?  Get down 360 Watersport Centre this Saturday and get some tidy street food.  DimExcuses.  Oh and for the real cycle geeks here is my strava cycle route.

A belated happy New Year from Wild West Wales! Tenby 2012/13

My New Years Resolution is to try and do a better job of keeping my Blog up to date.  I am going to try and blog at least twice a month and never more than twice a day.  Anyway a belated Happy New Year!  This year I was offered a chance to stay in a cottage in Tenby, which is lovely as always and pictured above.

After a take away Chinese meal and a few drinks with friends, we got our jackets on in true Welsh style, and made our way to the main square where the party was in full swing.

The busy pubs started to pour onto the street for the midnight hour and the fancy dress was very impressive!

As the countdown to midnight ended balloons were released onto the crowd.  The balloons were then followed by a great fireworks display. It was a fantastic atmosphere and I would definitely recommend Tenby as a venue for next New Years Eve.
