Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last couple of years, you would have heard about the mobile ‘dating’ app, Tinder. Perhaps you’ve used it yourself? You probably know someone who has. Marketed by it’s creators as the ‘worlds most popular app’, it brings singles together based on location and age, then shows any mutual (Facebook based) interests and friends hoping to result in a real life connection. Well that’s the idea anyway.

You’ve just knocked off work or you’re just finishing up dinner, what’s next? When you’re looking for a night out in Adelaide, the conversation of east end versus west end will inevitably pop up at some point. Do you stay one end of town? Or migrate to the other.

Pickles have come a long way since the days of being flung out the car window upon leaving the McDonalds drive-thru, or being one of the unloved finger sandwich options at Grandma’s afternoon tea.

Fun is the name of the game at Austin & Austin, ‘game’ being the operative word in that sentence.
Located just a stones throw from the east end and universities, Austin & Austin is one of Adelaide’s latest offerings for a daytime coffee spot and night time bar. Opening up just before Christmas, owners George and Simon (formally of The Palais at Semaphore) bring a wealth of hospitality knowledge to their new city venture.

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.

Since it’s inception in November last year, The Market Shed on Holland has exploded in popularity week after week. It’s a place of absolute beauty in so many ways: the set up, the food and the people. I’m not the first person to write about this not-so-little gem, and I certainly won’t be the last. Brain-child of the same lovely family who own and operate the Gilbert Street IGA supermarket, The Market Shed is a place to see and be seen.
