THEATRE : get on down to the Donkey

One of our lovely past team members Zoe is part of the most amazing new program this weekend. 
Its a must see! with such a fabulous ensemble and we are proud to be supporting Zoe on this.. we'll be there... and if you have not been to the Donkey Wheel house.., get down there..  this is a perfect place for the play!

Read here as described by a great little Theatre website: 
CHANTS DES CATACOMBES is a filthy little storyabout a showgirl, a surgeon and a courtesan. The innocence of each  has been stripped. For these three women history has turned its page, and they’re now entombed creatures of the catacombs.
This promenade piece of theatre will inhabit the basement of the gorgeous Donkey Wheel House building. This production will be an entire sensory experience, with a special series of scents created by perfumer Emma Leah.
Chants Des Catacombs is the brainchild of Anna Boulic, a NIDA trained voice teacher, harpist and singer, who developed a ten-minute version alongside theatre maker Bryce Ives. Last year it was the winner of the Short+Sweet Cabaret Festival.
This new cabaret experience mixes the styles of musical theatre, vaudeville, burlesco, indie pop, hip-hop and the macabre.

See our blog about the dinner that was at Shelley's Studio that Fiona took the photos for...

Back in March Shelley Panton hosted two dinners in the studio with chef Matthew Wilkinson and winemaker Mac Forbes.  It was a warming experience to collaborate with foodies alike to celebrate all things artisan for the table from the produce, to the plates, to the wines.  

Shelley is pleased to announce that she will be hosting two more events in July with chef Nicolas Poelaert of Embrasse Restaurant and Andrew Marks of  The Wanderer  and Gembrook Hill vineyards

Set in the century-old butcher’s shop which houses Shelley's home based studio-come-store, guests will savour four courses created by Nic alongside wines by Andrew Marks, presented on stoneware clay plates made by Shelley, especially for this dinner

NEW - Coffee spots and directional dilemas

YES - we have a coffee problem - a good one :) ... a Melbourne one.. 

How to choose the next step once out of the lift - left to see Jo at Switchboard, left then right to head up to Shany and Danny at Liason, or perhaps our newest short cut - sharp Right and then down to the right again, and we find Rob, and Hugh at Hoboken... Thanks to some well experienced and passionate locals.. this is a great addition to our corner of town! -

It is a dilema! ( and so far that is just the first 3 off the top of my head.. we have 15 that we share on our Cafe Culture Walk  but thats another story!)

Great Salads, fresh pastries, and amazing Soups! - oh some other yummy's too
