The Marrickville Metro and Inner West Delight

Ahh the Marrickville Metro, its an iconic shopping experience serving the Inner West of Sydney since 1987. I was fortunate to experience it first in 1993 when dressed in a chicken suit I had the opportunity to open the first Franklin’s Big Fresh. My career may have spiralled since then but the Metro has always made an impression on me.

With an expansive car parking system, the Metro is easily accessible. It’s heralded shopping scene is the delight of any working class man to fashionista. The international food court is a mix of tasty treats from around the world and exemplifies the mix of people that live in the area . Last but not least is the delightful market experience with its collection of artisanal cheese, fresh fruit and veggies. Do yourself a favour next time your in the area drop into the Metro, you won’t be disappointed.

I Love Newtown

I love my home of Newtown, it’s not just the amazing collection of restaurants, outdoor areas and vintage shopping. There is the artwork on buildings, the cool creepy ass graveyard and EXTREME bicycle riding through the streets. But mostly it’s the amazing sunsets, quality bars and the fantastic people.

So do yourself a favour and go catch a band (when we can aka Dandy Warhol’s) head down to Henson to watch the Jets and enjoy a $1 coffee by the full moon.

Places I Love – Newtown My Home

Strolled down the road to the art community Carriageworks to have a look at a few exhibits including features by the Biennale. Amazing

Isolation in Times of Corona – 2042

The are of Newtown in which I live, postcode 2042, is starting to pick up again slowly post Covid. Unfortunately the bars are mostly shut, retail and restaurants are much the same.

In the meantime there is plenty of opportunity to walk the streets and reel off a few photos of my neighbourhood which I thought I’d share.

If your able and allowed to, go take a look at your area. I’m sure there is plenty of interesting things to see that we usually take for granted
