I rather like Errol Street in North Melbourne. It is a short street but full of character both visually and people wise. I think North Melbourne is now within the City of Melbourne, but this is the old North Melbourne Town Hall. The old post office adjoins.
I think Comic's Lounge, in spite of the dodgy apostrophe, is a pretty terrific venue; promoting comedians of all levels nightly. I expect every Australian comic has performed here.
Hippie niece was not looking so hippie this evening. She wanted ice cream with her dessert, so she ordered it and wasn't told that her dessert already had ice cream. Communication breakdown. She was not at all fazed by the extra icecream and happily consumed the lot. Firefighters easily work off excessive kilojoules.
While there are plenty of medium rise new buildings in North Melbourne, Errol Street remains quite unspoilt. Look closely, even people living above shops. Wonderful.
