HOT: Builders Arms Hotel, 211 Gertrude St, Fitzroy

There was a time when the Builders Arms meant only one thing for me – a place where you were guaranteed cheesy 80s hits and that special coloured lights tiled dance floor (a la Saturday Night Fever) where you could strut your lawnmower dance.

HOT: God of Carnage, Playhouse Theatre, 100 St Kilda Rd, Melbourne

Misbehaving children seems to be the theme of the month for me, what with the Chris Tsiolkas talk at the Melbourne Writers Festival and this play. God […]

This rustic, verging on twee creperie serves a large selection of sweet and savoury buckwheat crepes as well as specialising in French cider. The service was a little scatterbrained when I arrived on a rainy Saturday afternoon, but after I […]
