HOT List: Melbourne International Film Festival 2011 picks

YAY! It’s the time of year when I can bunker down in dark cinemas for hours on end during the Melbourne International Film Festival. This year RM and I have selected the films for our 10 film mini-pass in a slightly different manner. In one way we’ve been constrained by the fact that we have […]

HOT: Pillar of Salt, 541 Church St, Richmond

In The Melbourne Magazine’s recent list of Melbourne’s best cafes, Richmond’s winner was Pillar of Salt. Intrigued by its biblical name, I made a mental note to visit it the next time I was around Richmond. Let me just say at the outset it’s a place worth a trip across town. On a weekday afternoon […]
