The rotating street art exhibition continues + Phibs “Journey”

The rotating street art exhibition continues + Phibs
I started photographing the free rotating art exhibition next to the Crumpler store on King Street last October. There have been several changes since then. A couple of months ago, some bastard actually stole the Phibs artwork right off the wall. It took a while to get a replacement board back up on the wall, but it’s up and I was excited to see that Phibs has made a return with another one of... 

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.... 

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... 

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... 

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... 

Ramen Bar…Art in a bowl

Ramen Bar...Art in a bowl
The Ramen Bar is a relative newbie on the Inner West block. It opened in March this year and has a unique location inside the Berkelouw Books store on O’Connell Street in Newtown (just off King Street). For those who might not be familiar with ramen, it is a delicious traditional Japanese noodle soup.  The Ramen Bar has 10 ramen dishes to choose from and I can best describe them as “art... 

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...
