Here are my five highlights of events in Perth during March/April which i am pretty excited about.
1. Yay! UpMarket is here again! This Sunday 20th March. 10-4pm.
at Winthrop Hall, Unversity of Western Australia
35 Stirling Hwy
2. William St Culture & Arts Festival this Sunday 20th March. 10-4pm. Same day as UpMarket!
*The road will be closed between Brisbane and Newcastle Streets, creating the perfect venue to celebrate the artistic and multicultural vibrancy of the area.
3. Bicycle Swap Meet on Saturday 26th March. 8-1pm.
@ Russell Square, James St, Northbridge. Learn crochet from Granny Funk! Anything to do with bike is fun! unfortunately i don't think i could make it this time.
4. KickstART Youth Market
5. Coffee Appreciation Trail - 1-31st March 2011
When i saw this event on Eat Drink Perth website, i thought i would like to try some of the cafés mentioned above in the Coffee Appreciation Trail. I've never been to any one of them so it would be really interesting to check out these venues.
so far i've tried cappuccino from Frisk & CNR cafés. Prices around $3.80-$3.90 for small cup.
I quite like Frisk's coffee for its creamy froth, the natural sweetness from the milk & the retro lounge area.
CNR is located at a very nice sorta hidden spot at James st corner Lake St. The coffee smell was great & i quite like the round sturdy metal cylinder as seats too.
The next cappuccino i want to try is from Ristretto Espresso Specialists which is currently top with a 268 votes. Also, i always wanted to have a cuppa at the Cabin Fever by the awesome people from Pigeonhole. Haven't get around to it. So, that's on my list too!
*You can vote for the best coffee served here and win a year's supply of free coffee from your favourite venue.
I will reserve my vote until after i've tried a few more. But somehow i really hope that Cabin Fever will have the highest vote cause i went past it a few times, it looks like a really comfy homely place to spend your afternoon at.
