5 Dos and Donts at the Races

A day at Royal Randwick is a must on my social calendar each spring and autumn. It’s a great excuse to glam it up during the day with a group of your favourite friends. But, all too often you hear stories of ‘that girl’ who ended up barefoot cuddling an empty bottle of bubbles on the […]

Berowra Waters Inn

There are two ways to get to Berowra Waters Inn. One is by seaplane. The other is by private ferry. Of course there could be other ways. Rubber dinghy, canoe, paddle board and hovercraft are just some of the unconventional alternatives I consider as my private ferry pulls up to the restaurant. It’s a beautiful […]

Say Cheese

A suited waiter with a cute smile placed a glass of chilled Chardonnay into my hand before I even stepped foot into the Opera Café. It was the first sign of a good night to follow. Lea Nguyen, the PR manager from the Intercontinental Hotel, welcomed us to their new  ‘A Taste of Dairy’ themed dining […]

Vasco Bar

I think Vasco Bar in Surry Hills should be renamed- Good Times Bar. Actually, that’s a pretty shit name for a bar so let’s stick with Vasco but let it be known that this is a bar where good times roll. Behind the spirit and vibrato of this small bar with big energy is Max […]

Bishop Sessa Competition

Crown Street in Surry Hills is almost 3km long and not short on great places to drink and dine. Head towards the Cleveland St end and you’ll find Bishop Sessa, a bistro and wine bar creating some delicious produce driven food and tasty cocktails.

Bright Spark at Spakka-Napoli

The boys, Gigi and Danny, sure know how to turn on the charm at their new wood fire pizza and tapas bar, Spakka-Napoli. These born and bred Italians have brought a taste of Naples to Neutral Bay and aren’t shy about sharing their passion for eating. Or drinking for that matter, just try some of their house […]

Game On At The Standard Bowl

My dear old dad dusted off his bowling shoes and accompanied me to the opening night of the Standard Bowl, the new bar/bowling alley that’s just opened above Lo-Fi in Taylor Square, Surry Hills. I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll was playing as we entered the third floor of the Kinselas building, where The Standard used […]

When Papi Chulo Came to Town

As part of March into Merivale, Papi Chulo, Merivale’s new dining hot spot in Manly, crossed the Harbour waters bringing a taste of their smokey menu to the Ivy. Palings Bar and Kitchen was buzzing with excited guests donning ‘Papi Loves Ribs’ badges and bibs with ‘Talli Papi Syndrome’ branded across them. These bibs came […]

A night under the stars at the Moonlight Cinema

After being dropped at the farthest end of Centennial Park in Paddington, my date and I began our long ‘Wolf Creek 3’ style walk to Moonlight Cinema. After what felt like forever and after avoiding any potential psychos we finally spotted a big screen and beaming lights beaconing us up ahead. Cascading down the grass […]

Hop Harvest Dinner at Chiswick

Beer has long been predominantly in the domain of men… and a beverage often judged by quantity consumed rather than quality. However, any discerning Australian drinker (that’s most of us) must have noticed the ever expanding number and diversity of beers available in our fair country. For all of you that are still at the […]

Chocolate is a Girl’s Best Friend

Whoever said diamonds are a girl’s best friend… was wrong. Chocolate is a girl’s best friend and there was plenty of it at the Chocolate Appreciation class I did recently at Jones the Grocer in Sydney’s CBD Westfield Centre. From couverture chocolate, made with extra coca butter, to café latte-covered coffee beans, to ‘vanilla & […]
