Well, my final Offspring blog. And what a lovely way to wrap up my current tv obsession (from a blog point of view - will still be tuning in on Monday). Sonido on Gertrude St is a small Colombian Cafe only open until four and thus a late addition to my blogging post. Unfortunately it was cerado (Colombian for closed I think) when we tried last weekend so I bribed Bean to meet me for Lunch and a shop this Saturday as she had missed out on all the OP fun last weekend.
Sonido is bright, bustling ... Read More
You knew it was coming right? How could I possibly lead you through all of these Offspring locations and not take you the the pub they seem to frequent in just about every episode. The pub that during season one hosted fights, reunions, drunken moments, sober moments, award moments, packed with potential moments, proximity to arson moments, a birth and one of the most horrifyingly funny songs by Eddie Perfect (a six at best).

Get yourself along to the Black Cat. This is pure Fitzroy, from the assorted comfy couches to the mix n match decor a la garage sale. This venue is featured frequently in Offspring in guise of cafe although it is just as well known as an evening night spot.

So after our coffees and fruit sodas we decided to mix it up. Alcohol. Yay. Our next stop on our OP (Offspring filming locations Plan) was to head to the infamous Madame Sou Sou. This is one of those places that seems to have mastered the trifecta - popular brunch, lunch and dinner venue. And pretty good for coffee and hot drinks in between. This cafe is used in Season 1 when Nina meets the very very handsome Chris Havels wife for a coffee (before running over her foot).
We arrived at this institution ... Read More
So our first stop as part of the OP (Offspring Plan - our plan to visit a number of the Offspring filming locations) was Radio on Gertrude St with it's iconic play school round window and wooden chairs & table outside, cute but always surprises me how often I see people sitting out there so close to the road. This venue seems to be used quite a lot in the series for coffee and lunch. Dino, Coffee and I knew we were going to have a big night ahead of us - so little did we know - so we settled for ...
