Waste Land Movie Ticket Giveaway

Waste Land Movie Ticket Giveaway
I’m loving Hopscotch Films! They have given us 8 free ’2 for 1′ tickets to see Waste Land. Directed by Lucy Walker, it has been nominated for Best Feature Documentary at the 2011 Academy Awards and was the winner of the Sundance Film Festival 2010 Audience Award for World Cinema Documentary. I checked out the trailer and I definitely want to see this film. WASTE LAND Official Trailer... 

Cafe Sopra on Dank Street

Cafe Sopra on Dank Street
Ahhh… the joy of food. It doesn’t get much more joyful than the food at Cafe Sopra on Dank Street. The food is amazing, hallellujah kind of amazing! I have my friend Ali to thank for introducing me to this place. She recommended I try the meatballs and they are out of this world. Meatballs, pasta, salads and desserts to die for! Without a doubt the menu board will have something to delight... 

Street Art @ Crumpler on King Street

Street Art @ Crumpler on King Street
A few more months have passed and the rotating art exhibition next to the Crumpler store has had two new additions. The last two works have been done by Ears and SMC3. Who doesn’t love a free art exhibition? For anyone interested in dropping by to check out the artwork – 305 King Street, Newtown is the place to go. I’m looking forward to seeing who the December artist is going to... 

Movie Review: We Need to Talk About Kevin, now showing at Dendy Newtown

Movie Review: We Need to Talk About Kevin, now showing at Dendy Newtown
This is going to be one of the more delicate reviews I have written in some time. We Need to Talk About Kevin, the extraordinary new film from acclaimed filmmaker, Lynne Ramsay (Morvern Caller), is an experience that benefits from knowing very little prior to viewing. As a result, this review will leave a lot unsaid, but I wholeheartedly recommend checking out this densely plotted, powerfully acted... 

Newtown Festival 2011

Newtown Festival 2011
The Newtown Festival is a fantastic commmunity event organized by the Newtown Neighbourhood Centre and all money raised is used to provide support services to the local community. The festival has come and gone and as the saying goes… a picture is worth a thousand words! So I thought instead of just writing about the day I’d share some of the photos I took. The good news for everyone who... 

Newbies on the block: Double Roasters in Marrickville

Newbies on the block: Double Roasters in Marrickville
I was so excited last week when I discovered a new cafe had opened up in my own backyard of Marrickville. How could I resist popping in on the weekend to check it out. The fitout is gorgeous and I love the donkey that greets you at the door. There are lots of things that I love about the newbie on the block, Double Roasters in Marrickville: 1. It is within walking distance from my house – yippeee! 2.... 

Movie Review: Bill Cunningham New York, now showing at Dendy Newtown

Movie Review: Bill Cunningham New York, now showing at Dendy Newtown
Bill Cunningham New York, directed by Richard Press, is a thoroughly entertaining documentary about an eccentric obsessive, a passionate and dedicated professional, and a happy, kind-hearted, down-to-earth and extremely likeable individual. Bill Cunningham is not just a New York Times photographer; he is a cultural anthropologist who has been chronicling for decades the most peculiar of New York City’s... 

Inner Westies at Outpost Project on Cockatoo Island

Inner Westies at Outpost Project on Cockatoo Island
  My head almost exploded with excitement last Sunday morning as I hopped on the ferry headed to the Outpost Project on Cockatoo Island. The ferry ticket sets you back about $15 but it is worth every penny! My husband had to tell me to calm down as soon as I set foot on the Island because I took off like a chook with its head cut off, running around in a crazy manner trying to see everything... 

The Pie Tin… The Art of Pie

The Pie Tin... The Art of Pie
So who’s been to The Pie Tin in Newtown? Combine one of my favourite foods, potato, with a choice of about a zillion different delicious pies and you have the keys to my heart. The Pie Tin has a huge range of handmade sweet and savoury pies which are baked daily on the premises. It opened in about March of this year (I think) and if you haven’t been yet, add it to the list of great places... 

Interview: Street Artist Ears

Interview: Street Artist Ears
We are lucky to be surrounded by so many talented street artists in the Inner West and it was Ears that originally got me completely hooked on street art. So imagine my excitement when he agreed to an interview! I remember being blown away when I drove by a collaborative piece Ears did on Addison Road in Marrickville a couple of years ago. I almost gave myself whiplash as I drove by, I quickly parked...
