Fine fare in bloom

22/10/2009 by Jules Overett

Executive Chef, Ian Farnsworth of University House is behind Boffins new, inspired spring menu, encompassing a European twist and the nostalgia of a lifetime’s cooking. “It's a retrospective. There is a French twist to it which was influenced by my first few years of training in England. Everything we did was in French, we spoke, took orders, everything,” Ian said.

Speak Easy Fringe Club @ Street Theatre

19/10/2009 by Natalie Tsirimokos

Entering Street 2, Street Theatre on Thursday 15 October, was a bizarre step through time. I was intrigued to see that the space had been transformed into an intimate 30's club; ambient with lanterns and soft chatter. Old leather boots and other objects were hanging from the ceiling, and the audience area was decorated with little round tables adorned in purple table cloths. My guest offered me a gin and tonic and I was perplexed yet delighted that for this evening only, the gin was served in tea-pots.

The new bling

16/10/2009 by Natalie Tsirimokos

The look: Think Parisian socialite in a leather pencil skirt, and sky high YSL court platform heels. She's, busy, front-row and has a rugged edge that even Kate Moss would envy. How to get it: 'More is more is more,' your new mantra for S/S 09/10. The new bling is here; it's gritty, rugged and adds a certain grunge to a refined look. Choose matt silver, midnight black rhinestones, studs, crucifixes, leather and stock pile on your hands, or around your neck. More is more VS Less is more:


Galvatrons: Blast into the future

14/10/2009 by Natalie Tsirimokos

The Galvatrons are a modern day rock sensation. Keep the 80's hair, epic chords and synths, add a passion for transformers and you have 4 young lads tearing it up in 'double denim.' I catch up with Johnny Galvatron, vocalist, guitarist and ‘the attitude’ of the band, while he’s kicking back in Melbourne and preparing for a Triple M gig, later that evening. “It’s nice to be home. The past 12 months have been a bit of a blur, we’ve been touring for 2 years now.”
