Easy Thai @ease

Read More

Thai Street Food or Ta-Rad Toe-Rung as it is traditionally known, is a place to meet and eat a variety of wonderful authentic Thai foods.
Most dishes are prepared in smaller portions so that you can choose from a number of different styles to truly experience the exotic flavours of Thai Street Food. Start with Chicken Satay Skewers, Prok Skewers, Fish cakes or At ease fries. Prefer a larger portioned dish? Then you can move straight on to some of the well-known Thai favorites such as Padthai, Pad Se-ew, Siamese Chicken Rice, Basil Stir-fry, Sukhothai Noodles, Tom Yum Soup and Papaya Salad etc. If you still have room for desert, why not try out mouth-watering Thai Fresh Fruit Delights such as, I-tim Ma-prow or Kao Tom Mad.
Finally, from all of us here @t ease, “Aharn Glam Lao,” we hope you have the most delicious and authentic Thai food experience and fun amongst friends.

In the end, the quote over the door sums it up best: “Buy the ticket, take the ride…” (Hunter S Thompson).

So, come one, come all to the fairy tale that is StoryVille.

Storyville

Read More

Once upon a time there was a cocktail bar and nightclub in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD called ‘StoryVille’… Styled around childhood fables that we know and love, this fairy tale themed venue offers a truly unique and whimsical experience for those who dare to roam throughout its rooms.

During the week, the Mushroom Palace Cocktail bar, with glowing toadstools sprouting from the walls and chilled out atmosphere, makes an ideal drop in for after work drinks. Take the edge off with one of our signature cocktails, or simply relax with an ice cold beer or glass of Pinot Gris.

On weekends the StoryVille team keep the party going ‘til late with two floors of music and entertainment. From the moment you step through the door into this noir fantasy you’ll discover a world of nostalgia and wonder, where anything is possible.

Climb the Enchanted Tree to the Mushroom Palace and Birdcage or travel onwards to the fantasy world of Tolkein in the Hobbit House Bar, Narnia and The Library ~ complete with a wall of giant books.

Music is supplied by some of Melbourne’s well established DJs plus interstate guests, who spin tunes from an ink pot-shaped station. The dance floor fills to a range of sounds such as soulful vocal/funky house~ climbing to deep & tech house through to the wee, small hours.

In the end, the quote over the door sums it up best: “Buy the ticket, take the ride…” (Hunter S Thompson).

So, come one, come all to the fairy tale that is StoryVille.

U3A

Read More

The University of the Third Age (U3A) is an international organisation embodying the principles of lifelong education and the pursuit of knowledge for its own sake, in an atmosphere of mutual learning and teaching. Each U3A is a learning community, organised by and for people who can best be described as being active in retirement – the so-called “third age” of their lives.

The term “university” is used in the original and medieval sense of an association or community of teachers and scholars, united in the pursuit of knowledge. “Third age” refers to the life period of active retirement, which follows the first age of childhood and formal education and the second age of working life, and which precedes the fourth age of dependence.
