A German dinner gathering with close friends at Hofbrauhaus (18-28 Market Lane, Melbourne) was how Peggy celebrated her birthday. Live, jolly music from the band played whilst everyone enjoyed the food, company and conversation. Cake cutting couldn’t happen in the Hofbrauhaus dining hall, so, quick thinking from Paul landed everyone at QV foodcourt where a large and delicious vanilla sponge cake topped with fresh strawberries and chocolate made by Anne was demolished after singing Happy Birthday to Peggy!
