Ladies of the Inner West

Ladies of the Inner West
About time we had a celebration of the lovely ladies of the Inner West. Check out these gorgeous ladies! Some oldies and some newbies, some young, some a little older, some looking fresh faced, some needing a little work. But I love them all. All of these lovely ladies reside in the Inner West but I am sure there are loads more about. Let me know if you have seen any more that I haven’t included.... 

Higher Ground Studio

Higher Ground Studio
Bet you didn’t have a better weekend than me! On Friday I managed to buy an original Beastman artwork at the grand opening of the new Colour By Numbers Gallery on Enmore Road. I was also lucky enough to meet Beastman on the night and to say that I was super excited by this would be a dramatic understatement. I tried my best to play it cool so that I didn’t scare him, but I’m not... 

Winter closures and Pre-Spring Openings!

Winter closures and Pre-Spring Openings!
The last month of winter has seen several new business ventures spring to life on King St and sadly a few closures as well. Starting at 228 King St, which last month was Joshua & Sean, has quickly re-opened as Kaboodle, an accessories store which many of you might know from various markets around town. They also stock Red Dog Designs which we have blogged about previously. I know a lot of you will... 

Movie Review: Win Win, now showing at Dendy Newtown

Movie Review: Win Win, now showing at Dendy Newtown
I really need to see more of Thomas McCarthy’s films. If his other films, The Station Agent and The Visitor, are as good as Win Win, I have been seriously missing out. Some critics, though enjoying the film, have labeled Win Win ‘uncharacteristically safe’ for the McCarthy resume. Sure, it does rely on some coincidences and it does all round up in a neat little package. But as... 

A buyers agent and a selling agent – Opponents?

A buyers agent and a selling agent – Opponents?
Hey there Inner Westies, I want to introduce our new guest blogger Fred Haggar. Fred is the principal of Property Search 4U, a buyers agency which is basically a one stop shop for all information regarding the property market, in particular in the Inner West. I picked his brain when I was looking to buy a property and I’m sure he can offer other Inner Westies valuable information on our local... 

For the love of Hazzy Bee

For the love of Hazzy Bee
I feel like a bit of a street art floozy. I am in love with the work of so many artists including Ears, Beastman, Phibs, Be Free, Bird Hat and who coud not love Hazzy Bee? I’m sure the list of favourite street artists will continue to grow. But today I want to shine a little light on Hazzy Bee because everytime I walk past a Hazzy Bee design it shines a little light on me. Hope it brings a smile... 

Marrickville Road is full of surprises

Marrickville Road is full of surprises
It’s not everyday you can walk down a street and say “There is a shark on the roof!” It is also a very strange thing to be seeing in the Inner West of Sydney, not a well known area for shark spotting. For those of you that may not be familiar with Marrickville Road, it has some interesting roof art going on. The shark on the end of a fishing line above the Marrickville Seafood shop... 

Gigi Pizzeria on King

Gigi Pizzeria on King
Gigi Pizzeria combines two of my favourite things… food and street art! Gigi’s offers a range of great Italian dishes and delicious pizzas with a fanstastic wall of graffiti as a backdrop created by the super talented Ears (who I have a big graffiti crush on!). Nothing beats a great calzone and Gigi’s does an awesome one with ricotta and prosciutto, so good in fact that I have had... 

Movie Review: Senna, opening tomorrow at Dendy Newtown

Movie Review: Senna, opening tomorrow at Dendy Newtown
You don’t have to be a Formula One fan to be brought to tears by Senna. This vibrant, engrossing, powerful and ultimately tragic portrayal of the life and untimely death of beloved sporting icon Ayrton Senna, from British director Asif Kapadia, is documentary filmmaking at its most exciting. Winner of the World Cinema Audience Award for Documentaries at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, Senna... 

A crazy world of antiques and design

A crazy world of antiques and design
The Antique and Design Gallery in Alexandria has to be seen to be believed. You can’t miss this bright yellow warehouse as you drive along Mitchell Road and it brings new meaning to the phrase “jam packed”! The ground floor is full (literally packed from the floor to the ceiling) with pre-loved items of furniture, clothing, accessories, instruments, surfboards, bicycles… you...
