A short missive from the front. Had dinner in Newtown last night.
Nice to see “Mag Nation” has arrived in Sydney. I am a bit of a mag fag.
However, it was not so goood to see the Newtown Hotel – a great gay and lesbian pub with a ripper dance floor “in the day” under the amazing David Hiscock – still dark. There’s talk of a $3-million re-development, but it won’t mean a return to the former clientele. Not sure if that is a good or bad thing.
It has stopped raining, just in time for me to fly back tonight and get ready for the Melbourne Victory to get revenge against those Sydney FC-ers in the A-League.
More emerald city musings on my return….
