It was nice to catch up with our dyke friends, a couple, last night. We exchanged holiday news, they had been to Bali, and it was just the four of us at a very nice restaurant called Arabesque in Carre Street Elsternwick, and while it was not particularly cheap, the food was very nice and the service great. The wine flowed and the conversation was good. Since the four of us brought our individual wine bottle along, the corkage was high at $8 a bottle. Learning lesson, share with friends, except we all ended up with a little bit left in our respective bottles.
Oh look, at the end of the street Officeworks now occupies the site where the, surely almost the last, Coles variety store was. The 'notorious' underground lavvy known as the thirty nine steps in the opposite side street has been concreted in and only an above ground stainless steel lav tells of its history. And who was that cute dark haired, somewhat nerdy, and slightly exotic looking boi who worked in Hattams next door to the Coles variety store? I didn't think he would amount to much. Just another kid serving in a shop.
First class service by the route 67 tram, there and back. On time, every time.
Jayne, is Hattams in Oakleigh still there?
