East Meets West Lunar Festival 2012

It’s all happening tomorrow in Footscray. See you there!

Has anyone checked out the new IGA in Footscray? If so, what do you think? We’re diggin’ the huge variety of Asian foostuffs. Mmmm steamed buns…

Apologies for being so quiet for the last few months. It appears that life got in the way. Maribyrnong Council has a tonne of events coming up - in particular we’re super excited about the Lunar New Year Festival. Gonna be mental!

Hopkins St, Footscray, with the Trocadero Theatre on the left, 1924 (via)

The Trocadero theatre is sadly no more, but it lives on through both the Trocadero Arts space that has taken its place on that corner of Hopkins and Leeds (see here for a good modern day comparison of the corner - that billboard is a creation of the Trocadero, changing every so often for a new artist to put up their piece of expression) and in the Trocadero cinema at the Sun Theatre, Yarraville, where many local, long gone theatres survive in the names of their 6 cinemas.

Drinks at Sabroso tonight for all of you people on the Meet Up page. We can’t wait!
