Movie Review: This Must Be The Place

Movie Review: This Must Be The Place
This Must Be The Place is an unusual film. It is a rich character study and a wonderfully weird and ambitious American road movie from master Italian director, Paolo Sorrentino (Il Divo), directing his first English language film. It is one of the best films to hit screens in 2012 so far. Cheyenne (a performance of incredible precision from Sean Penn) is a former 80’s rock star living in his reclusive... 

The Grounds, Alexandria

The Grounds, Alexandria
I’m a lover of design and the newbie in the industrial landscape of Alexandria, The Grounds, showcases an appreciation of design in every aspect of its construction and presentation. I drove past The Grounds about a month ago and did a double take because it was still under construction but it already looked super cool. Needless to say I couldn’t wait to check it out once the doors had... 

Fabric-A-Brac comes to the Inner West

Fabric-A-Brac comes to the Inner West
The next Fabric-A-Brac is less than a month away, and it’s great news to discover it’s being held in the Inner West. This is a must see for all Inner Westies who love their fabrics. For those who haven’t had the Fabric-A-Brac experience it is basically a fabric and textiles market. Stall owners sell unwanted supplies which means people get the opportunity to purchase recycled and... 

Gioia Café, Leichhardt

Gioia Café, Leichhardt
The building that now holds Gioia Café was once a rundown BP service station.  Although the skeleton of the station remains the petrol fumes have long been replaced with the delicious scent of traditional Italian wood oven pizza. I have been to Gioia twice now and highly recommend it. The pizzas come out on a thin base with the perfect balance of cheese and toppings to create a sumptuous pizza bursting... 

Great Garage Doors of the Inner West

Great Garage Doors of the Inner West
Nothing beats walking down the streets and through the lanes of the Inner West and finding great art on garage doors. There are some amazing designs out there. When I finally get around to fixing my dodgy back fence I need to find a street artist who can transform mine from a boring wooden paling fence into a work of art. Some of the street artists that have redesigned these garage doors throughout Newtown,...

Sustainability & Eco-friendly but does it taste good?

Sustainability & Eco-friendly but does it taste good?
Discovered this restaurant a month ago and then couldn’t get a booking till Saturday night. Practically drooling with suspense we took extra care at the bottleshop to pick the perfect red as we had an idea we were in for a special treat. Spencer Guthrie’s is not a large venue so perfect for smaller gatherings. Located at 399 King St, Newtown, it’s Newtown’s latest restaurant...
