Winter menu to impress @ Ellacure

28/04/2011 by Sarah Watt

One of my favourite things about Canberra is its seasons; the onset of winter shows in the colour of the leaves in the street and the change in flavours on the menus of some of Canberra’s best restaurants. One of these restaurants, nestled away in Bruce, is Ellacure and they have recently introduced their new winter menu to my absolute delight. I recently visited Ellacure with a girlfriend on a freezing Tuesday night and was immediately warmed by the cosy atmosphere, delightful staff and interesting winter menu options.


The Holidays @ Transit Bar

The super long weekend found an aptly-named band pack out Transit bar on Saturday night. Hailing from Sydney, The Holidays stopped over to celebrate Easter with their Canberra fans on their Seven Million Mornings tour sold-out show. I arrived mid-way through Gold Field’s set, who have been supporting The Holidays throughout their tour, and was surprised at the level of energy that was on display by the young, hip and friendly crowd.

British India @ ANU Bar

04/04/2011 by Grace Keyworth

British India played at the ANU as part of their 'March into the Ocean' tour. Supported by The City Riots and Boy in a Box, the venue was half filled with a mainly male crowd by the time I got there, just as The City Riots finished. Boy in a Box performed a spirited set but the crowd wasn't exactly engaged, with more standing than dancing. That didn't stop the boys giving it their all though, no-one could say they lacked energy when playing power-pop single, 'Moon Comes Up,' and, 'We are the Warriors'.
