Dishy hunks and good food round off week’s events

THERE is nothing like a tasty morsel (and a little beefcake on the side!) to get your gallivanting Gossip Girl’s tongue wagging – and her taste buds dancing.
The re-launch of the new Tabu Grill, Bar and Lounge at the Radisson Blu in Summerstrand had Skinnerbek raving about the delicious food hours after the event had ended.
General manager of the hotel, Clive van Oudtshoorn, mingled with guests on Friday night, explaining that the restaurant needed a breath of fresh air and a change of menu, from the Italian pastas that were a major part of the Fellini line-up to a more South African flavour and feel.
Guests at the intimate do  included Pierre Voges of the Mandela Bay Development Agency (he’s a man who gets around, doesn’t he?) as well as  the head of the Port Elizabeth Business Chamber, Alfred da Costa, who tucked into the array of  affordable and delish dishes that hunky  chef Malcolm Bendrau served up.
Skinnerbek just loves a good- looking man who knows his way around the kitchen!
More good food (and a few good men!) was to be found at the Rotary Ladies Gala Dinner 2011 at the Feather Market Centre which was opened by a group of kids from the Siyakhathala Youth Centre.
They were accompanied on stage by a veritable hottie dude line-up of Chippendale potential in Mr PE 2011 Garneth Jaggers, Mr PE 2010 David Thompson, and Mr PE 2011 runner-up Jonathan de Ridder.
The kids danced their butts off to the sound of Waka Waka, the iconic Freshlyground and Shakira World Cup number.
Smooth-voiced Neil Pienaar was the master of ceremonies and he did a great job by thoroughly entertaining the guests.
 Skinnerbek and her mates LOL’ed throughout the evening.
The event was also graced by one of the hottest men (and bods) we all adore – our  own modest Olympic gold medalist Ryk Neethling – who gave a  touching address in which he spoke about  his sister’s battle with cancer and his reason for doing charity work.
The event was to raise awareness of those in need and  to support the Maranatha Streetworkers Trust – so a big salute to the organisers for making a difference in the lives of others.
