The Fringe Hits North Adelaide

It’s that time of year again – Mad March – when everyone in Adelaide dusts off their glad rags, polishes their dancing shoes and prepares themself for six weeks of parades, late nights, cutting edge arts shows and raucous belly laughs. That’s right, it’s festival season in Adelaide.

And North Adelaide will be right in the thick of things, with numerous events and Fringe venues speckling the Precinct, including Pick of the Fringe at The Kentish on Stanley Street, and the NAPA Art Walk, both brought to you by The Garage International and the North Adelaide Precinct Association.

Congratulations to E for Ethel

Great news for one of our Melbourne Street icons. E for Ethel was this week listed at #12 in Yelp’s Top 100 Places to Eat in Australia! We all knew they were awesome, and now Yelp has confirmed it to the rest of the world!

This is fantastic recognition for Amanda and Dan and all the Ethel crew, who have worked really hard to develop the café’s unique character and atmosphere. We couldn’t be happier for them, and hope this result will further cement E for Ethel’s place as an Adelaide institution (but hopefully it won’t mean we’ll now have to queue to get a table).
