Northcote Nights

20120126-172202.jpg

Last night M and me decided to go for a few drinks and make the most of the nice weather we are having! We went to the Wesley Anne in Northcote, it’s about 10 mins from my house. Northcote used to be a bit of a ghetto up until about 10 years ago, when all the artists and creative types got prices out of Fitzroy. Now they are all living in Northcote and bring with them all the great restaurants and live music venues. High St is always pumping, there is always some new indie band playing a set at 303 or a bunch of skaters filming a demo. It’s like got that same vibe that Fitzroy had when I was a kid before all the doctors and lawyers moved in.

The Wesley Anne is a great place to visit if your ever in Northcote. It is an old church that has been converted in to a restaurant/ bar/ bandroom. You’ll find all types of people there, I mean I found the Wesley Anne through friends of my parents! I always try and get a seat in the beer garden, it’s pretty massive with a painted combi van out there it’s the best way to enjoy a balmy Melbourne evening. They also have 2 for 1 meals between 5 and 6 weekdays which is definitely worth getting around!

The most hated man in Australia?

Probably not quite, but Thomas Berdych didn’t win too many new fans in Melbourne yesterday after he refused to shake the hand of his opponent Nico Almagro after four gruelling hours of tennis. Almagro hit Berdych with a cheap shot and dropped him earlier in the match which Berdych said was the reason behind the handshake snub.

Me and B got tickets through work and honestly can say that I have never seen anything like it, Berdych was literally booed off court by everyone at Hisense arena. It’s a tough one to say whether Berdych’s actions were right or wrong. But in my opinion it was immensely disrespectful to Almagro and it was not in the spirit of the game.

TACO TRUCK

So last night I took my friends E and L to Taco Truck for dinner. I’ve never been before but all my cool indy friends love it, pretty much its a truck that sells tacos, it moves around from place to place everyday. They do nachos and burritos, you have to make sure you get there early so they don’t sell out, but its worth it! They are so tasty and the super super hot sauce is a must!

If your in Melbs you can find out where the Taco Truck will be via their Facebook or Twitter
