Rehab 101: the rest of MelbourneNOW…

The Gang and Granny finally caught up with the rest of MelbourneNOW over at Fed Square. And have to say that, yes, it was a mixed bag, but there was plenty of wow factor to make up for any short comings.

And then there was the bonus of the fabulous Jules – again!! She sure gets around that girl…

We loved the Hotham St Ladies decor – a wonderful pastiche of royal buttercream icing, modelling past, confectionary, props and general tat…

 

The classic 70's dinner party from memory!!

A Stygian room if ever there was one. We loved it – tickled our morbid fancies big time. Plenty more where that came from here.

Granny and the Gang, replete, repaired immediately to Y&J for our customary bevie with dear Chloe
