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.

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

After two fails and a little heartbreak on our way to the next on the list we passed the gleaming lights of ... Read More

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.

Offspring Season 3…
Yay for Offspring season 3 starting tonight on Chanel 10 but it has made me realize I need to organizes my next OP (Offspring Plan) tour where friends and I use the show as an excuse to explore a bit of Melbourne and visit some bars and restaurants. It's been lovely how many emails and comments I have had about the show and how many people love the idea of an Offspring themed outing (destinations not neurotic (but lovable) family fights in public). Whats been even cooler (yes, I may well be stuck ... Read More
