Gopals for its quick and cheap food. If you don't want any choice about your meal then Don Don is every bit as quick and cheap, maybe more. I have been enjoying it but it is not all vegetarian like Gopals. The menu is small. Vegetarians have a choice of tofu curry don, soba salad and miso soup. I have stuck with the tofu curry don which is a bargain at $5.90.
ACMI Cafe for coffee and cake. It is some time since we have been there. When Sylvia was a baby and went where we went, we visited quite a bit. (Unlike these days when we go where she goes!) So I couldn't help looking out at the highchairs and space for strollers to see that it is still very child friendly. I suspect that Sylvia would love the booths that are new since our last visit.
E had a coffee with a very nice biscuit. The range of herbal teas was too limited for my tastes so I had a ginger beer with a slice of warm chocolate mud cake with lots of lovely gooey ganache on top.
Blur concert at the Rod Laver Arena. I didn't take a lot of notice of Blur when they were at the height of their fame but I have great memories of dancing to their music in nightclubs and of spending time with friends in London who were the sort of fans who lived for backstage passes to Blur gigs. The band is also a sentimental favourite because one of the CDs that E bought when we were first going out was a Blur EP.
