Modern Asian Persuasion | Date #19

When you think of cool Modern Asian it-restaurants in Melbourne’s CBD the image that comes to mind first has to be a long and angry queue of people waiting outside. For me, it’s grossly unfair as I’m mad for Modern Asian. Thankfully though there is one particular little mod Asian CBD spot that has seen […]

Dating Plan B | Date #18

Let me set you an all too familiar dating scenario. You want to go and check out the ‘it’ restaurant or cafe in town and impress the pants (pun intended) off your date. It may have a no reservations policy or you’ve left your reservation too late but you try and get a spot there […]

Sunday Safari | Date #17

Two Sunday’s ago, I braved the extreme heat and ventured into the CBD on a Sunday afternoon (not something that I normally do). I’m in the city Monday to Friday so usually I avoid the big smoke on a Sunday. However something drew me into town that day and I reckon it made a beauty […]

South Yarra Sunday Session | Date #15

Avid readers of 50 First Dates will know I wrote a Bali special not too long ago. One place that I did not write up as every man and his dog that go to Bali already know about it was Potato Head Beach Club. As its name suggests, Potato Head is a beach club fit […]

50 First Dates | Bali | Date #11

Winter was fast approaching and all reports were that it was going to be a freezing cold start. With this in mind I packed my bags and headed to Bali for a week. This was going to be my third trip to Bali in 16 months. Like I preach here, a little bit of research […]

Friday Fiesta | Date #7

It’s all happening in Melbourne this long weekend with the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival continuing and Moomba Festival starting. The Opening Night at Moomba is a nice little date and MFWF have plenty of pleasant markets going on, but you all don’t come to this page for nice and pleasant dates. How about I […]

Renovations, Makeovers & Newborns | Date #4

St Kilda, the town where the hookers and the homeless live alongside the wealthy and the fashionable. You’d think this would be an easy date with a choice of Acland Street cake shops, Luna Park, the Vineyard and the Espy. Well those places are so 2012. Welcome to the new St Kilda. We start the […]

50 First Dates | Melbourne | Date #1

Do it wrong and Melbourne’s CBD can be a big bad city full of pit falls and locked doors; you’ll find yourself queuing up for hours like sheep in hope of landing a table at that new ‘it’ restaurant, or walking aimlessly down Swanston street and settling for that ‘famous’ pub full of tourists. Do […]
