Up in Smoke

It’s the name of the restaurant and general store I went to on the weekend for a family lunch in the wicked west.  This American-style barbecue joint in Footscray touts itself as being all about beef + smoke + beer so it was an interesting place to take my kids to!  There’s an outdoor beer garden and it’s pretty cool looking although I have to say I still think the food is better locally at Bobo’s Diner in Ivanhoe, although I may be a bit biased…

A work friend who’s been to Up in Smoke has said that Le Bon Ton in Collingwood is pretty similar if you’re looking for another place with a great atmosphere that does smokehouse food reminiscent of the American south.  Speaking of things French, there is a new Haute Couture Houses lecture with NGV Curator, Fashion and Textiles Paola Di Trocchio available on Wednesday 3 May at The Johnston Collection in East Melbourne.  Her previous six lectures have already sold out.

Speaking of which, I think my upcoming Bold Thinking Series lecture at the State Library Victoria later this week has almost sold out.  I will indeed be just as interested as the rest of you on what our panel of experts have to say about the future of work.  Have a great week!
