Board Game Night At The Hungry Hippo (feat. Zaful)

Finally had a weekend off and took the opportunity to drive back to Adelaide. It was a Saturday night so I arranged for my friends and I to have some fun at Adelaide's board game cafe, The Hungry Hippo. Oh yes, I'm a nerd and this is my idea of fun. Haha. I had been meaning to visit this cafe for ages. The reviews have always been good - saying that the food is as good as the games. And it's true!
Striped Top HERE, Ripped Denim Shorts HERE, Pink Pilot Jacket HERE

The cafe opens at 5 PM on Saturdays so I had the time to shoot these photos at Victoria Square. I MISS YOU, Adelaide, I really do.
For a relaxed and casual day of walking around the city and game night, I had to be in a comfortable (but cute) outfit. Thanks to Zaful for my striped long sleeved boyfriend shirt, ripped denim cutoffs, and blush bomber jacket.
This pink bomber jacket easily became a favorite just because it's so "me". Cute and casual since it's a bomber jacket but classy and feminine because of the blush color and silky fabric. While it's a little too big for me, this jacket will definitely be a staple during colder days.
Also got this plaid tassel shawl scarf from Zaful which was too thick for the sunny weather, but I'll definitely be styling it for the winter.
Here's a quick and short The Hungry Hippo Review:
Food was awesome - the menu consisted of unique flavours that people might not be used to but I loved it. You pay $5 per person to play games, this charge is separate from your food, which I really didn't mind. They have a very large collection of games (that you can also purchase at discounted prices) and the staff were incredibly helpful - helping our indecisive group pick out a game and set it up. Unfortunately, despite the large space, it was fully booked on a Saturday night! I made the mistake of not making a reservation but thankfully the staff accommodated us for 3 hours. Yey! I'm definitely going back. (And making a reservation this time.) 😃

Are you into board games? Which one is your favorite?

Always,
Jeanne

  2. My fam and I play a lot of Scrabble and Game of the Generals (my Mom is the consistent winner for both - we want to believe she's cheating. Haha!) I've never been to a board game cafe! This sounds extremely fun. Love your outfit as usual. Enjoy your week, Jeanne. xoxo

  22. I adore that pink jacket! It's definitely a great choice. I can see it working well for many different outfits. I like how it's a light pink too.
    This is such a coincidence because for my friend's birthday dinner, we are going to a restaurant with a bar and boardgames too. I've never been, but I've heard great things about the place. Apparently food and games is a good combination.
    My personal favorite board game is probably Monopoly because I really get into it!

  59. Love this post! I have a weird addiction to buying & playing board games with I disguise by telling people they’re for my son haha Hungry Hungry Hippo used to drive me crazy though, the little balls would fly everywhere & we eventually lost them all haha It’s really cool how they named the cafe after the game. I love your jacket btw, the pink is such a nice, soft shade.
