Now, don’t be catty…
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. This was where our OP (plan to visit local Offspring filming locations) went a little off whack - we were hoping to grab a bite to eat to ward of all the alchamahol but were told that the bar stops serving food at four. So while we didn't ... Read More

Sou Sou cute…
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

Heard it on the Radio-o-o…..
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 ...

Oh when the saints go marching in…
No, this isn't about a football team (am not sorry to say that for this blog it is unlikely ever to be the case) but about the next feature in my Offspring Fitzroy crawl. Welcome to St Judes Cellars. This is one of those places I have had on my "when rich" list for some time now. And then my OP (offspring plan) came to fruition and this restaurant featured in the first episode of season 2 like a siren call. That was it. St Judes was on the hit list. We stumbled into St Judes airy open front ... Read More

Sprung…
Offspring Filming Locations Yup you have me....I occasionally get addicted to tv shows - especially when they are costume dramas or filmed in the city in which I live. Welcome the Chanel 10 series Offspring staring Asher Keddie (and Eddie Perfect). I love this show for many reasons including a heroine who thinks the thoughts I think (sometimes), an amazing vintage wardrobe a crazy family without being violent and lots of random owls. I love this series even more for her improbably large apartment ... Read More
