Why has an American burger chain opened it doors in little ol’ Mt Barker, South Australia? I wouldn’t have the sliiiightest clue but that certainly didn’t stop me from making the trek out yonder for it’s first week and checking the place out. I wasn’t the only one too with a line of eager feeders almost out the door.
Crank the heater, brew some peppermint tea and dive into some fresh sheets with a bloody good book. It’s winter time baby and what better way to get through this hellish season then to snuggle up and read? That’s where I’ll be until conditions improve and these are the books I’ve been hiding away with recently:
Karma and Crow, Whistle and Flute, Trouble and Strife, Froth and Fodder, Bricks and Stones and now we finally have another ‘something and something’ cafe to add to Adelaide’s ever expanding collection. I’m talking about the new Fine and Fettle that’s popped up on Magill Rd and although this place has followed the ‘Hip Adelaide Cafe’ guidebook when it comes to it’s name, I’m happy to report that with everything else, Fine and Fettle is marching to the beat of it’s own coffee machine.
The change of season brings more than just a change of weather. There’s a change of wardrobe, a change of routine and a change in your electricity bill, but the change I’m really excited about, is the change in menus! *the crowd roars* All across this fine city of ours, I can hear chefs muttering frustrated words whilst trying to get the balance of flavours in a new dish juuuuust right, wait staff discussing how to pronounce ‘orecciette’ and printers spluttering out that exciting new list of things for us to eat and drink!
The weather here is colder than your ex-girlfriend’s heart, so here’s a list of things I’ve been loving in the colder months. Snuggle up with an energy efficient heater and a cup of organic Matcha and enjoy!
Last weekend we decided to head east for our eggs and with the news of spectacular reviews coming from the newly opened East Borough Eatery, we had to check the place out. With the building’s previous tenants being the famous Bar 9, these guys certainly have big breakfast shoes to fill.
A couple of weeks back we got down and dirty with a garage sale of our very own. I think it was quite the success really with plenty of crap out of our lives and a wad of extra dosh in our pocket. So here are a few tips and tricks to keep in mind when you’re venturing into the world of selling your shit…garage sale style.
