GGB Montreal – Studio Ghibli Bento Picnic Brunch
Back in June the Montreal Geek Girl Brunch chapter held their second brunch, this time we decided on a Studio Ghibli theme and decided that a picnic in the fresh air could be a great way to pay homage to Miyazaki’s masterworks. Stretching the theme even further we encouraged brunchettes to bring their own Ghibli themed bento boxes and offered a small prize for the best submission.
As it turns out, the date we picked was actually a pretty busy day for the geeks of Montreal and attendance was pretty sparse. Only one brunchette managed to make a bento box, so she got the prize pack by default. However, Officer Mariko did bring 2 dozen Soot Sprite cupcakes, so everyone was very well fed.
Even though it wasn’t super well attended, the weather couldn’t have been better and everyone who did manage to make it had a great time sipping wine spritzers and discussing our favourite Studio Ghibli films.
