Sayer’s Sister: worth eating out

Venue:Sayer’s Sister Date: 29 December 2013 Location: Northbridge, Perth Price: Moderate ($19ish-$20 for dish & coffee) Today’s brunch safari took us to the wilds of Northbridge/Highgate in Perth, destination: Sayer’s Sister. At first blush I read Slayer’s Sister, thinking we’d be heading to a Vic Park weed den to live out the bikie gang fantasies […]

The Brisbane Edit: Les Bubbles

Strip clubs. Brothels. Steak frites. Open up the unconscious of most men and that’s what you’ll find humming like a bumblebee in one form or another.  Luckily for those of us too cheapskate to afford  psychotherapy or too uncoordinated for trepannning, access to such a holy trinity is now no more than a short walking […]


The Brisbane Edit: Le Bon Choix

The apartment hotel at which we are staying has all the class of a second-hand suit moonlighting as a pair of pyjamas.  The lords of cheapskatery on were having a good chuckle – but as we’re only up in Vegas on a whim we thought we’d roll with unseen dice and try our hand […]


The Brisbane Edit: King Arthur’s table

I’m up in Brisbane this week to flog my political wares to Queensland Labor and visit my barmy relatives. Being the sporting type, I invited my girlfriend along to introduce her to my take-no-prisoners grandmother.  Being fashion victim bees to gentrified honey, after a night of ghoulishly taking the streets for something to eat past […]

Mary’s (Burger) CBDelicious

Venue: Mary’s CBD Date: 3 December 2014 Location: 154 Castlereagh St, Sydney Price: Cheap enough to get fat quick (burgers $10, fries…$3?) Urgin’ Mary Mary’s takeaway in the city. Nuff said. But why let brevity get in the way. Mary’s of Newtown (or as it should probably be known, Mary’s Burgers) has finally got the band […]


Movie Review: Interstellar – Journey into a 5-Dimensional Library

  Movie Review: Interstellar It was mission accomplished, George W. Bush-style. Humanity had finally conquered its ultimate barrier, interstellar distance. No longer would we be tethered like a fat kid in swimming lessons, onward and upward! Interstellar, Christopher Nolan’s new epic blockbuster about humankind’s journey to the stars, had arrived. As I suspect was the […]

Neil Perry is probably as […]

Venue: The Grounds of Alexandria Date: Regularly  Location: Alexandria, Sydney Price: $13 chicken burger, $4 coffee x 2 Let me commence oration by stating clearly that the Grounds of Alexandria is without doubt one of my favourite hives in Sydney, a true fleur du merde. So much so that it hardly needs another serving of […]

Venue: Rocket Boy Pizza (Newtown) Date: 08 June 2014 Location: Sydney, Inner-West Latte Belt Price: Pricey for the quality – $40 two allegedly (but not really) gourmet pizzas I was getting ready to catch-up on this week’s lap-dance of political intrigue via the ABC’s Insiders on Sunday night.
