The warmth of red wine and friendship

By | July 29th, 2018|bars and restaurants, design, friends, light art|

It was a bit of a new experience to go shopping with a friend. It is so interesting how conversation flows in completely different ways with the stimulation of browsing lovely things. It was quite a novel experience. To add to this, is that amazing warmth that grows between two people who are drinking red [...]

Cool Out Sun – Melbourne International Jazz Festival

By | June 10th, 2018|bars and restaurants, friends, music|

Last night was the perfect evening in many ways. Just great company, great food, and amazing music. I was so lucky to see Cool Out Sun at the Reverence Hotel last night. I was following my friends into the band room, I could see them just in front of me, and the door bitch said [...]

By | June 9th, 2018|bars and restaurants, daily life, friends, journal|

My evening out in Footscray, exploring delicacies and finding new music makes me realise how grateful I am to live in this city. Something made me look back today, at a messier, more chaotic chapter in my life. It kicked me in the guts a bit, but then I realised, talking to a friend: what [...]

Sunday session – drinks and people watching

By | May 6th, 2018|bars and restaurants, friends|

Smith Street is a lovely place to people watch on a Sunday afternoon and watch the world go by. Miss Party Feet hosted drinks there this evening, and I floated back down the street, taking in the sunset, people's interesting clothing, their pets, the conversations and dynamics. It fills my soul with the substance that [...]

Best of British – Saturday night – MICF

By | April 22nd, 2018|bars and restaurants, comedy|

The last comedy that I saw in this season of MICF was the Best of British. Four acts + an MC. Each act spoke for about 10 minutes and told one main story. From the guy whose mother gave him a sky diving adventure for his birthday, because he is afraid of flying, and ended [...]

Thando – NUMB – single launch – The Workers Club – Fitzroy

By | April 21st, 2018|bars and restaurants, music|

I rocked up to the Workers Club in Fitzroy at maybe 10:30 pm and saw most of the last support band - Zii. They were great. The room was jam packed, and it shouted from the rooftops when Thando was mentioned. Thando has been doing many regular, free gigs around Melbourne for some time, and [...]

Friday night work drinks – heaven is warm and bubbly

By | April 21st, 2018|bars and restaurants, professional, weather|

We were blessed with a warm and balmy Friday and I knew that I was going to have a nice evening of drinks with work people, when they started talking about their penchant for buying cases of wine from nearby wineries. I feel like I am definitely in a good place in the world, with [...]
