It’s Budget Night 2013.
It’s a bone-biting six degrees.
We hurtle towards towards Barton, listening to Wayne Swan‘s (last?) budget speech. Just as he finishes, we arrive.
It’s a chilly May night when we arrive for a group dinner for 7pm at Jehangir Indian in Swinger Hill. The first thing that strikes me is the decorations…
Whatever your thoughts about Skywhale, it’s fair to say it’s Canberra’s latest sensation. Here she is, in pictures:
It’s just past 8.30am on a Saturday morning, and Lonsdale Street in Braddon is starting to wake up. We managed to get a table at Elk and Pea without booking or having to squeeze in with someone else, simply because we arrived right on opening (8am). A day of assignment writing stretches out ahead of me, and I feel a little motivation is in order…
It’s 4.30pm on a Friday and we play ‘which Canberra restaurant is still taking bookings?’. We laughably try for Eighty-Six (definitely full) and I suggest to Boyfriend that maybe, just maybe, we’ll be able to get into Soju Girl. We have talked about going forever. They’ve got a table available at 6, and a table available at 10. We hesitate, and go with 6.
Just a month after the Small Brewers Beer Festival at the Botanic Gardens, we arrive bright and early to the Canberra Craft Beer and Cider Festival at the Mercure.
