Arcadia in the air…
When looking for a cheap steak night a few weeks ago, Apple directed us towards the Arcadia Hotel in South Yarra. While the steak surprisingly enough for me vegetarian self wasn't the object we were after somewhere that would feed Mr Meat and Potato and Moss Vegetarian (moi) and this place could do it with ease.   We went after a surprisingly warm day at the beach and climbed the flight of stairs to the packed rooftop bar/bistro air. The Arcadia Hotel (link) is very well pub like and ... Read More

Wanna play naughts and crosses…
On Saturday I stumbled upon the opening day of a darling little store, Naughts and Crosses, tucked in behind the Elwood shops.   Lured in by a sign that simply stated "cute shop", yes, I am that easily lured, I found this little etsy in four walls. Naughts and Crosses is geared around the premise of being for little people but don't be fooled - there is a lot for us to like here.   The store has been online for over a year now and I was lucky enough to meet owner Louise ...

Is that the Estelle Bar and Kitchen…
The Estelle Bar and Kitchen in Northcote was a bit of a surprise. When HD suggested it as a pre comedy festival event the rest of us were all happy to go along with the suggestion and take it from there.   Arriving at the Estelle ( Estelle Bar and Kitchen) we were greated by a lovely interior with rich wood and cool tiles and it's small - not super small just intimate small. We sat down and were offered the wine list which we happily accepted. The wine varieties were good although ... Read More

Up to the Aylesbury….
The Aylesbury roof top bar magically appeared before us when in need for a drink on Saturday night. Now I can see you arching your brow at that...magically you scoff? Well, when Bean, Dino and I planned to head out for a glass of bubbles to enjoy on a mild but threatening rain Saturday night little did we know how hard it would be to find somewhere that wasn't hosting a private function! After two fails and a little heartbreak on our way to the next on the list we passed the gleaming lights of ... Read More

Saturday Snap Back – a hidden gem…
How lovely is a leisurely Saturday? With a whole day ahead of me I had to decide what to do with the day and while debating potential brunch locales I recalled Monk Bodhi Dharma and the amazing French Stick toast they served. Just thinking of it makes me want to dash across town and head here... Vegetarian and Vegan Brunch decadence heaven.... Original Post: 22 May 2011... A few months ago I was hunting for somewhere in Melbourne that would cater for a Vegan Brunch. This sounds simpler than it ... Read More

Melbourne's weather this April…
I can hear you thinking this may well be the dullest post I have posted yet - but hold on! I stumbled on this site yesterday after marveling at the fact that despite it being mid April Elfie, Apple and I were planning to spend the afternoon down at the beach in Rye. I stumbled upon this site, Meterology.com, and found it to be intresting and packed with all the sort of random facts I love! **The screen shots are from the Meterology website taken Wednesday 17th April, 2012. Can you imagine ... Read More
