My favourite street art discoveries this month…

My favourite street art discoveries this month...
I feel like I have been a bit slack with my street art postings of late. Since getting my new phone I have been so excited about being able to upload my findings straight onto the I love the inner west facebook page I may have been forgetting to post them on the blog. So I am going to make up for that right now! Here are a few of my favourite street art discoveries this month. I need to get out there... 

Inner West Caffeine Hit List

Inner West Caffeine Hit List
Whether you are a serious caffeine addict or just an occasional recreational user this will be a very valuable list to keep handy. Some of you may have picked up The Sydney Morning Herald Good Cafe Guide for 2011, but for those of you who didn’t, here it it. The guide rates the cafes who have the best coffee and there are several Inner West winners. The cafes are rated by cups (similar to the... 

That Vintage Shop + more

That Vintage Shop + more
Walking up Enmore Road, heading to Newtown for lunch, I recently discovered the treasure trove that is That Vintage Shop.  Located on Enmore Road (right across from Enmore Park and the new Annette Kellerman Aquatic Centre), That Vintage Shop is vintage plus a whole lot more. It is an eclectic mix of furniture, accessories, chandeliers, bird cages, kitchen utensils, artwork and door handles.... 

Movie Review: Tree of Life, now showing at Dendy Newtown

Movie Review: Tree of Life, now showing at Dendy Newtown
The Tree of Life has finally arrived in Australian cinemas. Notorious recluse and media-shy auteur Terrence Malick’s fifth feature has been highly anticipated for more than twelve months. It premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May where it was awarded the Palme d’Or. It actually opened in Australia at the Sydney Film Festival where I managed to catch a screening. But amongst all of the other... 

It’s all about the Mash on King St, Newtown

It's all about the Mash on King St, Newtown
I may as well have called it the mash report after sampling the sausages and mash at one new business at the southern end of King St (Smash Sausage Kitchen) and then the pies and mash just off King St at The Pie Tin (Brown St  – northern end of King opposite Single Origin). Wow, specialty cafes and restaurants are on the rise and if I keep this up I am going to have to run up and down the full... 

Bitton Cafe + so much more

Bitton Cafe + so much more
Is it any wonder why I can no longer fit into my jeans when I am surrounded by so many great cafes in the Inner West that I just HAVE to try. Bitton Cafe and Grocer on Copeland Street, Erkskineville has been on my list for a while and it certainly didn’t disappoint! Everytime I walk past Bitton Cafe it seems to be completely packed. To avoid disappointment on the weekend we booked to ensure... 

Wilson Street Gallery is on the move…

Wilson Street Gallery is on the move...
I just made it to this exhibition before it closes on 10th July. Don’t miss this show. I would love to own a work by each of these artists. James Blackwell’s assemblages and sculptural works, based on natural forms, are intricate, delicate, small in scale and beautifully made. The works invite close inspection and contemplation. Nicolas Uhlmann’s sculptures  are expressive,... 

Ikea Tempe is getting closer to opening their doors

Ikea Tempe is getting closer to opening their doors
Recently I set up a home office and I had to make the trek/expedition out to Rhodes Ikea. Seriously that place is a nightmare to get to. I thought I was being smart by leaving work early and going on Friday afternoon, there was no way I was going to deal with a weekend crowd at Ikea. My plan was really good in theory until I hit the traffic at 3pm Friday afternoon on Parramatta Rd, what a shocker. Anyway,... 

Friday Night Fry-up

Friday Night Fry-up
What: Friday Night Fry-up Where: Goodgod Small Club, Liverpool St, Sydney When: Friday June 24th Who: Cherrywood (Melb), La Mancha Negra, The Jacks & G@y Paris * The night well and truly kicked off with the rockabilly sounds of Cherrywood out of Melbourne. I can’t believe this band has been around since ’08 and this is the first I’ve heard of them. You can’t go wrong with... 

Interview: Beth Taylor “Breadtag World”

Interview: Beth Taylor
I will never look at a breadtag in the same way again! I dropped into Sweets Workshop to check out Breadtag World which is the current solo exhibition by inner westie, Beth Taylor. After hearing about how she created her artwork completely from breadtags I had to see it for myself. Big thanks to Beth for giving us an insight into her art, inspiration and process.  The exhibition is on until Wednesday...
