HOT: Yum Cha Dragon, Shop 14, 427 Docklands Drive, Waterfront City, Docklands

Sigh. The eternal conundrum of Docklands. Every time I visit the area I think to myself that on paper, it should work. There are restaurants, shops, markets, free events, lots of space for people to rest, stroll and ride their bikes, public transport access, heaps of parking, pleasant water and city views and close proximity […]

HOT: Hairspray the Musical, Princess Theatre, Spring St, Melbourne

I really enjoy going to see musicals but even with ample opportunity to see award-winning musical Hairspray both in Australia and overseas, for some reason I thought it was going to be too corny, too kitsch, for me to enjoy.

My friend said that the patient queue that snaked up Collins Street, Russell Street and looped around the building completely reminded him […]

HOT: Arcadia, 193 Gertrude St, Fitzroy

With so many great cafes on Gertrude Street, both old and new, it can be difficult to choose where to go. My advice? Just start from one end and work your way down :–) That way, at some stage you’ll make your way to the pine-tree stencilled windows of the excellent Arcadia. Arcadia ticks all […]
