So you thought ‘Mad March’ was over? Maybe you’re feeling those heavy post-festival season blues? Have you heard people making silly remarks about nothing happening in Adelaide for another year?
Fear not my friends! East End Wine Down is back. After last years sell-out event, this Saturday, East End Cellars will once again be turning Vardon Avenue in the city into a wine tasting wonderland.

And so it begins.
Another year, another festival season. Can’t you just feel it in the air?
It all started a few months ago…we saw those pink posters pasted upon the walls, the guide began to hit the doorsteps of our favourite city establishments, the box office took up residence in Rundle Mall and most exciting of all, the fence was erected around the fairylit wonderland which is the Garden of Unearthly Delights
It’s Fringe time baby. Strap yourself in.
Say goodbye to your liver, drain your bank account and dust off your dancing shoes.
Let’s get weird.

OK, so I was pretty boozy the first time I went to Ancient World. A friend had told me about this magical underground wonderland of cheap beers and rad music, tucked down an alleyway behind Hindley Street.

If you’re sick of the bar or night club scene, but are still looking to meet people – here’s a new option. Dot is a new initiative looking to break the mould of social interaction amongst the loud music, busy bars and the same faces week after week.
F. S. S. L. S. C.

I’m a big fan of alliteration as well as a good acronym, so when I first saw ‘F.S.S.L.S.C’ pop up on the social medias, I was instantly intrigued.
This weekend Adelaide City Beach has been transformed into the Frome Street Surf Life Saving Club, a 4 night pop-up outdoor cinema hosting the Shorts Film Festival for 2014.
Now, before you read on. Chuck on some Bob Marley – Could You Be Loved and allow me to set the scene…

What do you get when you combine the following…
– A day-time garage coffee shop turned night-time venue.
– A DJ spinning funk tunes.
– A live band playing neo-soul.
– A bunch of cool kids and wine aficionados.
– South Australian craft beer.
– Local Riverland wine with a bad-ass name.
You get a riot, a Wine Riot to be precise.

Well, that weekend was exhausting. The Rolling Stones packed out Adelaide Oval for their once in a lifetime concert, Rymill Park was filled with people inducing their dairy based food comas at Cheesefest and Gotye led a stream of people on a march through the city in the name of equality.
I didn’t do any of the above.
Instead, I spent a total of 17 hours on Saturday with a bunch of girlfriends; treading the pavement, eating lots of food, drinking too much wine and showing off my favourite spots in the city.
