19/04/2010 by Natalie Tsirimokos

Complimentary glass of wine or bubbly for OutInCanberra readers. It’s a mild Monday evening and my dining partner and I make our way to The Boat House by the Lake in Barton. Just a short drive from my Narrabundah home, I’m little ashamed to admit I have not dined there in more then four years.

19/04/2010 by Natalie Tsirimokos

It’s been a while since we’ve seen energetic heroes BlueJuice shimmy into our capital, but on an exceptionally chilly Thursday night, word has gotten around because ANU Bar is packed to capacity, energy, bubbling. Canberra band The Trivs kick off at 9pm, with some rusty mixing, but an overall good vibe and indie-rock tunes worthy of a head-bop. The crowd clearly just want to dance, and bounce along with commitment to our locals.
