What were you up to this time last year? Or for that matter, the year before that? Here’s a little on October happenings since Living Loving Hobart began:
Tiny Place in Battery Point
Philippe Leban has made a noteable contribution to Hobart’s food scene with French-Asian fusion – a little bit how you say, le Français, and a little bit Shanghai and a little bit Vietnamese. Noice. Different. Unusual. It’s still going strong.
Here’s our 2016 post – A Tiny Place
The Brisbane Hotel
Looking for a dinner that wouldn’t break the bank, we went in search of cheap eats.
The grungy inner-city hotel, with live gigs and floor coverings you stick to, is almost a thing of the past. Thankfully, the Brisbane Hotel lives on, with a real space for live music, pool tables, and the best value pub meals in town. We enjoyed our tex-mex tea even if our cheap eats hunt ended not long after. And p.s, This Girl was there the other day and not much had changed.

Love as Tomatoes
In 2014, guest blogger Russell Kelly reminded us of Hobart’s number one rule for growing tomatoes here is: Don’t Plant Them Before Hobart Show Day.
This year the Royal Botanical Gardens tomato sale is Saturday, 14 October 2017 from 10 am.
Here’s his post on growing tomatoes in Hobart and the importance of family – Love as Tomatoes

A Taxi Driver called Bill
It doesn’t matter which city or in which country you’re in, getting into a cab is always going to go one of two ways. The first I like to think of as the Alan Jones/John Laws brigade. It’s full of attitude or opinion you don’t share. The other is often a rich life story. In this post we discovered a very mindful Hobart taxi driver who’s main concern was how to get his passenger safely to their destination. We’ve never had Bill as our driver again – more’s the pity.

Ms Kat’s Kustom House
In 2012, we were shopping at Ms Kat’s. If you haven’t been inside you must take a look.
It has got its fair share of psychobilly, which is great because every wardrobe needs a piece of two, but her stock like her taste is more grown up and you will find the very sexy 1940s and 1950s look throughout the shop. And that’s a look that works on practically everyone.
