    Love this bar. But. My gosh. The hipsters. Ugh. Ugh. Ugh.

      New cocktail bar. Yay. New to us, that is.

        @rabryst They used it to thwack the attacking dog until it released its grip on the 90 year old woman.

          And no, they didn’t offer the dog beer to make it stop biting the woman. It was an American Pit-Bull. Probably didn’t like Aussie beer anyway.

            Two strangers armed only with a six-pack of beer have been hailed as heroes for stopping a dog that was savaging an elderly woman outside a home in Sydney's south.

                  @ronnie I’ll be sure to let them know they need to pay you protection money, being your ‘hood and all…

                    @ronnie Nope, they live in southern LV; south of the 215, West of the 15 (looking at maps..)

                      @sophistifunk Heh, yeah, good point. I am sure there are people from Planet Toorak who wouldn’t bat an eye at that sort of price. For my wife, well, that’s nuts.

                        @ronnie I’ll pass it along, thanks!

                          @ronnie Whereabouts did you go? My mother-in-law comes from an all Italian family, they might like to hear of a recommendation in that area...

                            I really like Ingrid Michaelson’s singing - first heard her on a track that was used on Grey’s Anatomy a number of years ago. Just realised she had a new album, and music video. I think it’s quite good - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5GBT37_yyzY

                              @mps Yes, well, she wasn’t going to buy them at their US prices, she’s not going to buy them at nearly double the price in Australia.

                                @mps https://www.charlotteolympia.com/collections/encore/ — several things with cats. Capri Cats, Cat Nap, etc etc.

                                  @mps Charlotte Olympia “Kitty Cat” flats. My wife is, in part, a crazy cat lady.

                                    Pair of shoes my wife wants: $600 in the US. $1000 in Australia. Even converting for the current currency rates, that’s $933 USD. What the heck, Australia?!

                                      @piemeson @cgiffard I have a much easier time reading perl than I do Python. I’ve never really tried Ruby. But I’m just not very good at coding, and haven’t been, since I gave up FORTRAN and Pascal.

                                        @piemeson I’m trying to resolve an odd Java bug (…) but the solution I thought would work did not work. SAP sucks.
