Great food, suggest the Calamari
The topside of wallaby with salsa & potato salad is great.
Get the berry dessert platter for 3 - $23. Amazing! It stopped traffic as I walked back through. Also try the tempura mushrooms and Ethiopian from Blue Nile (stall #25).
The WiFi is free as in beer - you need to pay for real access.
Loved the new Brasserie area - outdoors with a view and great fresh air, and space - nice pairings of food and wine in the tent, fewer queues than main shed
2010 The Mercury is doing a fun promotion - for $3 they take your photo and create a personalised front page of the paper - what a fun souvenir:)
NYE is eighties tribute band The Old Romantics- should be a lot of fun! Melbourne based group Keshie will also be there with funky West African drumming. Fireworks at Sullivan's Cove at 9.30, midnight
Free wireless access across the entire Festival site this year thanks to Wireless Tasmania Hobart Waterfront
Great to see the Taste has an iPhone app - visit their website : tastefestival.com.au and follow the link. If you don't have an iPhone, they have iPads with apps in the Cafe Precinct
