Poll and good old fashion Melbourne hospitality

Ok, I have added a poll in the top right corner on whether Lermie should be Face. Vote early and vote often!

In other news, I have been inspired by Paul Boylan's hospitality to Birmo while he is in San Francisco. Seeing was we are going to have our very own visitor later in the week, in the form of Chaz, I have secured a ticket to some quality entertainment for him.

No, not the tennis, it is finished. No, not the cricket at the 'G.

I have a free pass for 2 (half price after 10pm) to the Centerfold Lounge in Melbourne's most illustrious entertainment precinct, King St.

Just doing my bit for Melbourne!

Ps. Is it called hospitality because if you go out in King St there is a fair chance you will wind up in a hospital?

  2. I'll leave that to Chaz to worry about, I am far too classy to attend such an establishment.

  3. Naut, sorry I thought you'd be treating me? No? Also i'd have thought you'd be taking me to spearmint rhino!!

    The son of a mate was going to melbourne for a month or so (for work) I basically warned him off King street

  4. How terribel. Suggesting that Chaz should attend such an establishment. I'm surprised at such loose morals. We never ever do anything like that in Sydney.

  5. You are a fine ambassador for your city & you have every right to be aggrieved if Chaz doesn't take you up on your generous offer

  7. Lerm does that mean you'll be taking me to velvet cigar in march?

  8. Therbs - You are of course correct. I am sure in Sydney you would take him on a tour of your theatre district Kings Cross.

    Lerm - Thankyou, one does ones best. At the end of the day you can lead a horse to water .....

    Chaz - Now does Spearmint Rhino just seems wrong and I am treating you, you have no idea what I had to do to get the ticket.

  10. Naut, you spoil me you really do!!!

  11. Barnesm, what seems more wrong, you knowing that or the suggestion you have been there and just drank coffee????

    Chaz - My generosity knows no bounds.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Naut, you certainly can lead a horse to water - perhaps if it doesn't know how to drink, then you could offer a demonstration?

    Chaz - anything can be arranged!

  13. Unfortunately I doubt I will have a big enough night to attend that establishment, as I have a 7.45am flight the next morning.

  14. Nauti, I'm putting u in charge of arrangements when I am next in Melbourne.

  15. And i have a 9am interview as well!

  16. Naut, it could be worth considering an all nighter - just grab one of the BarnesM recommended coffees 'to go' when you have to split!

  17. Abe - stop it, I'll get a reputation.

    Chaz - At least I can sleep on the plane, try sleeping in your interview.

    Lerm - Maybe if I wasn't getting on a plane. Also I find that works better on the way home so it doesn't matter if you don't recover.

  18. If I sent Chaz a few dollars, would he be so kind as to stick them in the garter of "Scarlet" (if that's her real name)?

    If anyone ever comes to Atlanta, I'd like to treat them to the Claremont Lounge, but I would first have to ask if Caesarian scars are a problem?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Steve it depends if the scars are on you or not.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Well, if you mean if the scars are rubbing you, let me put it this way....you'll get a good enough view of them that you'll be able to comment to the stripper how good/bad her doctor's technique was.

    Of course, most of the strippers are old enough that stitching techniques were not as modern as they are now. See, a few of the dancers were working there when the place opened in the 1960's. And I spelled the name wrong, it's Clermont.

    It was in the Atlanta episode of "Insomniac" on Comedy Central, if anyone saw it.
