Spotlight on an Inner West Business: Dough Box Sweet and Savoury Delights

Spotlight on an Inner West Business: Dough Box Sweet and Savoury Delights
I love my late night treats at Dough Box on Enmore Road.The ‘Melted Moment’ crepe is my favourite (nutella, white chocolate, strawberries and marshmellows) and their savoury crepes look delicious as well. Fiona and George opened Dough Box about a year ago and a big thanks to both of them for taking the time to answer some questions about their Inner West business. Next time you’re... 

Pickwicks in Enmore

Pickwicks in Enmore
We are all in such a hurry these days, we need to slow down and enjoy that bottle of red over a gorgeous meal. Pickwicks is the place to do it! An intimate venue with loads of character on Enmore Road. I have been walking by this restaurant since it opened without trying it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Saturday night the planets aligned and 3 of us got together for dinner. First stop was the bottleshop... 

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.... 

Interview: Artist – Andrew Ensor

Interview: Artist - Andrew Ensor
I am a big fan of the Hardware Gallery on Enmore Road because of the wide variety of artists they promote and the great events they put on like Sound Series which is a monthly night of sound-based performance and installation. There is always something interesting happening at the gallery and the month of April has been no different. One of the current exhibitions, Castellum, showcases the work of... 

What does swine flu, free speech and E.L.K. have in common?

What does swine flu, free speech and E.L.K. have in common?
What do they have in common? Stencil art! I have a new found respect for stencil art. It began when I visited the Australian Stencil Art Prize 2010 at the Oh Really Gallery last year and I fell in love with a great design by a very talented 16 year old. This infatuation continued while travelling in South America where I saw designs that completely blew my mind. It is difficult to imagine the number... 

Australian Stencil Art Prize 2010

Australian Stencil Art Prize 2010
Oh Really Gallery recently hosted the opening of the 2nd Australian Stencil Art Prize (ASAP) with the crowd spilling onto Enmore Road. The Australian Stencil Art Prize recognises and rewards Australian stencil artists and this year the exhibition features 20 finalists.  The winning artwork was ‘Saul Williams’ by E.L.K  and the detail in it is amazing. There is something that will appeal to... 

Miss Mica Still – A Seduced Me

Miss Mica Still - A Seduced Me
I find it impossible to walk past the Oh Really Gallery without peeking in, and the current exhibition by Miss Mica Still is no exception. Not only are the artworks amazing but the painted walls are absolutely fantastic. American born but now living in Kiwi land, Miss Mica Still has brought her playful, sexual, exploratory, fun and naughty work to our Aussie shores and I love it. With artwork titles... 

Gelato Blue

Gelato Blue
Gelato Blue (recently renamed from Dolce and Gelato) is a well known gelato establishment at the intersection of Erskineville Road, King Street and Enmore Road. I can hear the gelato calling out to me everytime I am in Newtown… a call which I can never resist. Some people can’t think of anything worse than eating gelato on a cold day but it makes no difference to me whether it’s... 

Marrickville Council Environmental Initiatives

Marrickville Council Environmental Initiatives
Having just bought a property in the inner west I am always excited to find out about environmental initiatives of the Marrickville Council. I recently made my first visit to the Marrickville Organic Food & Farmers Market which was a foodies delight but while exploring the stalls I stumbled across a nursery out the back near The Bower. The Marrickville Community Nursery sells native plants but... 

Hardware Gallery on Enmore Road

Hardware Gallery on Enmore Road
Now I need to make something perfectly clear from the start – I am no art critic and I am not going to pretend to be one! My only qualification is I enjoy going to galleries and exhibitions to see the amazing work that so many creative people are producing. I just want to let you know a little bit about exhibitions and galleries in the Inner West and encourage you to get out there and have...
