HOT: Taste of Melbourne 2012, Pelican Lawn, Albert Park

Happy Friday! The weekend weather is looking like it will hold up for Taste of Melbourne‘s new outdoor setting by the banks of Albert Park lake. Thanks to Taste of MelbourneĀ I attended the first night of festivities and here are some of my highlights to act as a guide for your visit… For a savoury […]

HOT: Mad Cow Thursdays, Hotel Nest, 111 Victoria Ave, Albert Park

A steak for $1? Too good to be true, I hear you say. Well, on Thursdays at Hotel Nest they’ve termed it ‘Mad Cow Thursdays’ when premium John Dee sirloin steaks start from $1 for a 125g steak! The catch is that you’re likely to be spending more than $1 as the larger steaks cost […]

NOT: Misuzu’s, 7 Victoria Ave, Albert Park

But the unassuming storefront belies the high quality icecream made daily (by Jock!) offered inside. Anyway, there’s no way you can miss the store, as the heat of summer brings […]

HOT Chat: Carley Andrews of Ujamaa Hostel

Today’s HOT Chat is the first time I’m interviewing a Melburnian who actually no longerĀ  lives in Melbourne. Melbourne-born Carley Andrews now lives in Tanzania with her husband, running a hostel focusing on providing volunteer work opportunities. I was inspired to interview her after reading about her new project, a childrens’ home, which she has […]
