Ph 534 8719 Avenrose Florist Howick 124089 Midnight Madness in Howick Village Friday, November 15, 9am till midnight Busy families who have run out of time to bake a traditional Christmas cake for the festive table are in luck – this year, during Midnight Mad- ness, they can again buy the origi- nal Howick Christmas cake to add a sweet note to yuletide feasting. The recipe, which made its print debut in Aunt Daisy’s Radio Cook- ery Book No. 4 in 1934, is thought to resemble that used to make the traditional Fencible Christmas cake sent overseas to soldiers during the Second World War. Today, the Howick Christmas cake is a quintessential Christmas symbol for many a Howick household and this year limited numbers will again be on sale in Picton Street. Watch for the stall so you can be sure to snafﬂe your cake and can eat it too! Musical, Wicked is attracting crowds to town but something much more wicked, in fact wonderfully wicked, will keep them in Howick on Friday night. When Midnight Madness again casts its spell on shoppers so they can cut out their Christmas shopping in one big swoop, it will truly set the baubles rolling for Christmas. But as the night moves on more than a few will want to put up their feet, enjoy a bite to eat and a glass of Christmas cheer while they watch the festivities. And that’s the great thing about Howick village – it offers a wealth eateries all offering the very best in food and drink. Eating in or out, patrons are spoiled for choice and the standard of fare is so good it encourages plop- ping down the bags for a spell. In fact, Howick, with its selec- tion of contemporary and ethnic cafes, trendy bars, coffee houses and diverse takeaway outlets, caters for a wide range of tastes and budgets. And, come Midnight Madness, village venues will cater for fami- lies, couples and friends who, once the shopping is done, or before it is started, want to gather for a meal, social drink or to snatch a hearty takeout meal on the way home. Choose from licensed, BYO and unlicensed premises and go where the culinary mood takes you – Irish, Indian or Thai, try Middle Eastern, Malaysian or European, opt for a hamburger and fries, a pie or a take home roast – it’s all there from wine and tapas to four-course dining. What’s more, with entertainment galore and Howick Village Radio broadcasting live during the evening, the ambience is sure to be of the foot-tapping, hand-clapping, hip- swaying and shoulder-shaking kind. Of course, that’s likely to stir up a thirst, but be sure cheers don’t turn to tears – a sober driver is essential. This is the one time of year that Howick really comes alive at night so go wild on your festive shopping and take time to enjoy a bit of social- ising. Night owls rejoice – enjoy the mood, the music, the food and the fantasy. In short, have a great time! Midnight Madness to the Xtreme! We don't mean to 'Bragg', but at the Times, we've always been impressed by guys and girls who will sing for their supper and their breakfast as well. And in this regard, we're in for a real feast come Midnight Mad- ness. Yes, talented teens from this year's Xtreme Talent Quest stage competition are still performing for the peo- ple and will again take the stage this Friday. The show will feature performers from the tal- ent quest held at Uxbridge, Howick's Creative Centre earlier this year. Visitors can expect an eclectic mix of styles and approaches, as well as a vari- ety of musical genres, from blues to pop and classical and everything in between. So, for some uplifting entertainment while you shop, be sure to stop for a moment to see and hear these talented young folk. Legendary Howick Christmas Cake back in town Eat, drink & be merry!
