HOT Alert: Week of 23 November 2009

This coming week is filled with travel, rock, films, shopping, food and parties! Tony Wheeler, the co-founder of Lonely Planet, is speaking atĀ The Hive at The Order of Melbourne on Tuesday 24 November. Read my review of a previous The Hive event here; The Rockwiz Christmas special is coming to The Palais, St Kilda, on […]

HOT: MTC Garage Sale, 129 Ferrars St, Southbank

I’m an early-bird but there’s not many events that would have me bounding out of bed, grabbing a stupendous strawberry, white chocolate and coconut muffin from Proud Mary and lining up with hundreds of other people at 8:45am at Southbank.
