HOT: Legally Blonde the Musical, Princess Theatre, 163 Spring St, Melbourne

Confession: I love musicals. My normally fine-tuned antennae for excessive sequins, tackiness and over-the-top-ness is wound right down when there’s two hours of singing, high kicks and jazz hands on stage. Like amusements parks, musicals are almost guaranteed fun! Legally Blonde the Musical is an adaptation of the fabulous feel-good flick made famous by Reese […]

HOT: Phibs and Rone Mural, Hosier Lane, Melbourne

Ah Melbourne. A city full of hidden secrets. When I first moved to Melbourne I would often roam the laneways of the CBD and the inner city with a camera slung around my neck (yes, this is in the era before camera phones!) gawping at the urban landscape punctuated by street art like I’d never […]

So my […]

It’s a small tucked away cafe in the industrial end of Peel Street but it has been embraced by locals, especially those with young kids and prams. It’s a […]

HOT: Gazi, 2 Exhibition St, Melbourne

By George (Calombaris)! I am completely in love with Gazi. I was impressed from the moment I stepped inside and was greeted by the brightest smile I’ve seen on a maitre d’ for a long time. We arrived around 6:30pm on a Saturday night and were able to walk straight to our seats without a […]
