Oh la laaa at Slide

unnamed

Did someone say oh la la? Ahhh oui, bien sur mon amie! Miss Feathers and her man were recently treated to quite a show at Slide’s Darling Take me to Paris recently. And her man, who didn’t quite know what he was getting himself in for had a lot of fun watching a troupe of Moulin Rouge style sexy ladies dance and sing, oh,... Read More

The exhibition brings together the work of acclaimed Australian... Read More

My Sweet Memory: Oh So Sweet!

I recently discovered a little café in the Sydney CBD (Bathurst Street) that truly embraces everything cute and quirky. My Sweet Memory is part desert café, part stationary shop. I had previously heard about a dessert/ stationery shop, but I wasn’t entirely convinced that such an odd enterprise would work. When I walked into My Sweet Memory, however,... Read More

Getting all social – at the Gin Mill Social

IMG_4890

Slide is going all prohibition on us on Thursday nights. You’ll enter via the side door (so the cops don’t notice) and after pulling back the curtain, you’ll enter their Gin Mill Social drinking den. There’s the usual Slide style entertainment – burlesque performers, magicians, a guy balancing chairs on his chin, and some slightly different ones –... Read More

Bon Bon Cafe: It’s a cracker!

bon bon=600x400

Every now and again, I come across a café which I am a little reluctant to disclose to others. This is because I greedily enjoy the quiet ambience and good service, while being directly under the footfalls of Pitt Street shoppers. The source of this ambience is found at the Bon Bon café. It is situated under the Bon Bon chocolate store, where the Strand... Read More

The End of the World at the End of The Wharf

How did you spend the End of the World? (Capitals warranted because the Mayans, while wrong, did manage to make quite a fuss thousands of years after they made the prediction). If you’d chosen the Bar at the End of the Wharf, you would have chosen well. Not only were we treated to symbolic word play simply by being there, we also took part in a good-natured countdown at the... Read More

The Trap is reset: The Mousetrap

DSCF4662

On a starless and drizzly night, dressed in a green flapper dress and buckled vintage heels, I made my way through the city to the theatre. I don’t go to the theatre as often as I’d like, but this play was special and definitely one worth waiting for. The longest continuously running play in the world, ‘The Mousetrap’ made its way to Sydney for the first time this year with... Read More

The Rocks Cafe

I haven’t lived in Sydney for that long yet, but I have to say that one of my favourite, and I mean favourite, places is The Rocks Cafe at The Rocks (because it would be weird if it was anywhere else). This is one of THE places on my list when anyone comes to visit, and it’s become a tradition in my world of cake loving. I would... Read More

Getting lost, depending on the circumstances, can have either a positive or negative effect on your night. For us, heading out into Chinatown on a cold Thursday evening and getting lost turned quickly into a memorable night. Pics by one of Miss Feathers’ Friendly Crew: Josie Farquharson After hearing a few friends rave about a new Japanese restaurant... Read More
