Melbourne's very own little wolf, Lupino…
Tucked away on Little Collins behind white washed brick walls sits one of Melbourne's newest Italians, Lupino. When I was told we were being taken to an Italian restaurant with pasta "like momma used to make" I was thrilled. I love those authentic feeling Italian restaurans.   We headed over to Lpino during the lunch rush and found it next to the back of the Melbourne Club tucked along a little side street. The only reason we found it was the small red fox outline glowing above the door.   We ... Read More

Saturday SnapBack – Melbourne from another angle…
In October last year Bean and I took a Melbourne river cruise down the Yarra. It's something I had always wanted to do because I thought it would be lovely to see the city I love from a different angle. What I hadn't realized is that it would show me a whole new Melbourne I hadn't really realized was there. I am now hoping to go do another trip and head all the way to Williamstown. Perhaps I will see you onboard skipper?   The following appeared on the blog on October 1st 2011. So with ... Read More

Kenzan can you….
There are some places in the Melbourne CBD that are just crazy busy every lunchtime and Kenzan at the back of the Melbourne GPO building is defiantly one of them.   This Japanes eatery has two locations in Melbourne with a more formal restaurant at Collins Place and this lanewayesque dine in and take away restaurant at the GPO. Kenzan inside has limited communal seating but the covered (and heated) lanewayesque area has plenty of seating options as does a small pace inside the GPO itself. It's ... Read More

A stroll in style to a Sunny Ave…
Yesterday I visited the best hairdresser in Melbourne - Sunny Ave with the wonderful Sunny. I first discovered Sunny (and her name suits her!) when she worked at a salon on Russell St a few years ago. Bean and I were headed to the Writers festival as volunteers and I suddenly decided I desperately needed a hair cut. Haircuts for me are often instantaneous decisions. Very instantaneous.   Anyway so day of the festival we wandered into this salon and Sunny was able to see me, little ... Read More

Melbourne gets a 24/7 Post Office…
  Yesterday, as I was flipping through the MX I was pleased to discover an article revealing that Melbourne now has a 24/7 Post Office Super Store! The SuperStore will be a 'zone' set up at the 111 Bourke St Post Office that will offer vending machines, parcel lockers (!!!!!!!!), and self service terminals. It will also have a Harvey World Travel store and an American Express Currency Exchange outlet. To oversee the 'zone' a concierge will also be available. But for me it's the parcel service ...
