Last Friday night Canberra girls (and guys) were lucky enough to have the one-and-only Brody Jenner appear at the Tongue & Groove Launch Party. For those of you who don’t know Brody (cough), he is an American reality TV star, full-time heartthrob, son of Olympic champion Bruce Jenner (who is also Kim Kardashian’s step-dad) and probably at the top of every girls ‘Guy I want to Marry’ list. Presented by Tongue & Groove and FAMBIZ, Brody appeared to help celebrate the launch of the new menu, renovations and changed-up scenery throughout the bar.
