HOT: Lisa Tomasetti “Behind the Scenes: The Australian Ballet on the International Stage”, James Makin Gallery, 67 Cambridge St, Collingwood

Dancers have provided inspiration for artists for centuries. I think it’s a dancer’s constant search for the perfect line and form and the potential expressiveness and passion of the human body which fascinates photographers, painters and sculptors. Sydney based artist Lisa Tomasetti currently has a free exhibition of photographs she took for the Australian Ballet […]

HOT: Hello Aubergine vegetarian lunch delivery

I am currently in love with the lunches made by Hello Aubergine, a vegetarian bicycle delivery service run by Pippa Macdonald that delivers once a week in the Fitzroy and Collingwood area. Pippa designs the menu weekly, prepares the food and delivers the orders on her vintage bike, her wicker baskets laden with containers offering a […]

HOT: The Cool House, Rokeby Studios, 1/90-94 Rokeby St, Collingwood

The Cool Hunter is a website/newsletter that does exactly that – hunts out the cool, unique and unusual in design, travel, art, food, fashion and events from all around the world and collects them all in one drool-worthy portal. So it makes sense that founder Bill Tikos has decided to bring the website to life […]

HOT: Crop at Lightly Showroom, 3 Glasshouse Rd, Collingwood

Melbourne loves pop up design shops and this weekend there are three worth your attention – The Design Files Open House,  The Cool House and Crop at Lightly Showroom. Not to mention the popular twice-yearly Melbourne Design Market at Federation Square. Make that four! Design studio Lightly have opened up their two-level warehouse and showroom to 25 […]

HOT: Rockwell and Sons, 288 Smith St, Collingwood

Hello hump day, hello Fried Chicken Wednesday! Every Wednesday night American inspired Rockwell and Sons offer a bargain meal that will challenge the Dirty Bird for finger lickin’ value. For $60 you get a whole Southern style fried chicken plus a whole lot of sides that could easily be meals in themselves – fluffy buttermilk biscuits (otherwise known […]

HOT: Tomboy, 356 Smith St, Collingwood

As a person who loves eating food at any time of day, I make no real distinction between ‘breakfast food’ ‘lunch food’ and ‘dinner food’. So I think it’s perfectly fine to eat fish tacos and a huge brownie for breakfast. And you should too if you visit Tomboy! This handsome cafe displays one of […]

HOT: Goldilocks Lunch box delivery

Who would have thought that eating lunch at your desk could actually be a pleasurable experience? Thanks to Goldilocks Lunch Box every Wednesday (between 10am – 12pm) a beautifully packaged and freshly made lunch is delivered straight to your door, courtesy of Goldilocks aka Chrissy. There’s something so thrilling about having your lunch come gift-wrapped. […]

HOT: Aka Siro, 106 Cambridge St, Collingwood

Could Peel Street be the start of a Little Tokyo in Collingwood? First Tokyo Bike cycle shop, then Aka Siro lunch spot and recently Mina-no-ie cafe from the folks behind Japanese-style cafe and shop Cibi (also in Collingwood). Part the door curtains and step into cosy Aka Siro and you really could be in a […]

HOT: Storm in a Teacup, 48 Smith St, Collingwood

I’m a Melburnian and I’m a non-coffee drinker. Gasp! My hot drink of choice is actually tea and finally, in amongst the million excellent coffee shops in my neighbourhood, Storm in a Teacup has arrived to cater to those who are discerning about their tea leaves (and maybe even convert some diehard hipster coffee drinkers). […]

HOT: Gorski & Jones, 304 Smith St, Collingwood

I’ve been eye off the maroon meat slicer in the window of Gorski & Jones since it opened about 2 months ago. It’s a big, shiny, impressive beast atop a long white marble bar and it announces the restaurant’s Italianate roots with no need for dinky red gingham tablecloths and an accordian player. Gorski & […]
