Kaffeine and Lucy Lucy collaboration on Napier St

This new amazing collaboration on Napier St on the side wall of The Wilde on the corner of Gertrude St was completed recently by Kaffeine and Lucy Lucy over the badly tagged previous work by Kaffeine on this wall. … This post was first published on Fitzroyalty. © Brian Ward.

Fitzroy residents pleased with reduced ugliness on Smith St

The ridiculously ugly interior furnishing shop on Smith St south of Gertrude St that brought the very worst of southside aesthetics northside is gone. Local residents can now walk the street without averting their eyes. … This post was first published on Fitzroyalty. © Brian Ward.

hello friend

This is on the laneway side wall opposite the recently departed Bagels and Beans. … This post was first published on Fitzroyalty. © Brian Ward.

Original Lolly Store leaves Fitzroy

The Original Lolly Store has left Fitzroy for the CBD. A generic shop like this didn’t seem like a good fit here, and I think this space on Smith St is likely to become a new food venue. … This post was first published on Fitzroyalty. © Brian Ward.

bagels begone

This is a shame. Beans and Bagels had been on Johnston St for 13 years, but it had been a bit insipid of late. I had hoped that the Americana craze would reinvigorate it and bring in new customers but it didn’t seem to happen.… This post was first published on Fitzroyalty. © Brian Ward.

fire on Westgarth St last night

Twitter is remarkable for news reporting. I heard the sirens and watched emergency vehicles flashing north on Brunswick St from my balcony. Initially I could not tell if they were headed somewhere near or simply passing through to somewhere further away.… This post was first published on Fitzroyalty. © Brian Ward.

Annabel Crabb’s misleading misinterpretation of men and fatherhood in the wage gap debate

I wrote a long analysis recently of misleading reporting on the gender wage gap and referred to a lot of research evidence to support my case that most of the alleged wage gap is the result of voluntarily chosen behaviour rather than systemic discrimination against women.… This post was first published on Fitzroyalty. © Brian Ward.

Ecclestone and Putin

When Russian President Vladimir Putin arrived at the Russian Formula 1 Grand Prix yesterday, he initially wasn’t wearing his lanyard holding his pitpass. A battle of wills occurred. Bernie won and Vlad put on his lanyard. And he came dressed in Bernie’s uniform of crisp white shirt, no tie.… This post was first published on Fitzroyalty. © Brian Ward.

Fitzroy Primary School goes Pop

The Fitzroy Primary School GOES POP – Art Auction 2014 will be held on Friday 17 October at 5–7pm at 280 Napier Street, Fitzroy. There will be an uplifting performance from the school choir, free finger food, a sausage sizzle and soft drinks.… This post was first published on Fitzroyalty. © Brian Ward.

Côté on Brunswick St is closing

The northern-most block of Brunswick St is looking more and more like a ghost town. Côté is closing. The bike shop is gone, the Bear cafe’s hybernation now looks more like the permanent closure I suspected it was, and all that’s left...Show More Summary

formal apology

This is in the window of Labour in Vain on the corner of Brunswick and Moor streets. … This post was first published on Fitzroyalty. © Brian Ward.

I like your hair

This is newish on Leicester St. … This post was first published on Fitzroyalty. © Brian Ward.

Calico House has closed

Like many other retail businesses in Fitzroy, Calico House tried to stave off the inevitable by downsizing and leaving the high street for a back street, in this case by moving back a block from the corner of Brunswick and Leicester to Fitzroy and Leicester.… This post was first published on Fitzroyalty. © Brian Ward.

more Korean food on Smith St

In the space of the former Kizzmet (I never understood what that was) is now White Kimchi, a Korean chicken place, which has opened or is about to open (I can’t find any social media profiles yet). This is excellent news for carnivores and deep-friedivores.… This post was first published on Fitzroyalty. © Brian Ward.

coffee and cake at Il Melograno in Northcote

Northcote is buzzing at the moment. Apart from the closure of the lovely United Arab Eatery (which is relocating further north on High St in Preston), the northern strip is full of places that are new to me. The very southern Westgarth section of High St is also interesting,with Il Melograno opening recently.… This post was first published on Fitzroyalty. © Brian Ward.

Latin street food coming soon to Smith St

This is promising. In the space of the former Inter Thai on Smith a new Latin American restaurant is soon to open. … This post was first published on Fitzroyalty. © Brian Ward.

everything you’re being told about internet piracy is wrong

Yesterday’s Online Copyright Infringement Forum was a joke. It can be argued that the unauthorised reproduction of digital goods cannot be considered theft in the physical sense according to existing laws. Australian consumers are being...Show More Summary

it tasted like caste wine

It’s easy to spot the trolling in Suburbanspoon. Not just because most of it is fake, false, defamatory astroturfing, but because it’s written by people who obviously haven’t visited the restaurant or make even the smallest attempt to write a good fake review.… This post was first published on Fitzroyalty. © Brian Ward.

an independent Scotland

On Saturday morning Grant McCracken was at his usual Rose St Markets promotion place on the corner of Brunswick St with this sign. Later in the day he had disappeared and his sign was abandoned on Rose St. … This post was first published on Fitzroyalty. © Brian Ward.

lunch at Mighty Boy Eatery on Gertrude St

The former Hudson’s cafe is gone and in its place on Gertrude St is something new that is even better than I anticipated. Mighty Boy Eatery is a daytime cafe (evenings forthcoming) doing breakfast and lunch dishes with a variable Asian influence.… This post was first published on Fitzroyalty. © Brian Ward.
