Barrio, Adelaide Festival 2012 – Round 2

A night out with the girls saw us heading to Barrio on Friday night making the decision to arrive early to avoid a massive line up and present an offering to the Barrio shrine to ensure speedy access into the late night club!

Line up for people for non ticket holders or for those without an offering to the shrine; a pile of old retro tvs

After waiting in line for over an hour, the doors finally open and our shrine offerings are our ticket to get in!

Whilst waiting in line, the smell of grilled meats could be smelt wafting through the air so our first stop was the Senor BBQ stall!

Mix grill: beef ribs, chorizo, 2 chicken wings with salad and chimichurri; $22.00

Not only was the mix grill platter on the expensive side, the meat was overcooked, tough and dry. Our roaring bellies persevered and we gobbled this up in under 5 minutes. Now… off to quench our thirst!

Spontaneity at its best! We leave Barrio and make our way to Hindley St to grab a karaoke room to belt out some tunes.. but before we do, we make a sudden pit stop!

Post to come. 😉
