St. Patrick’s @ the Macedonia

Went up to Lancefield for St Patrick’s Night on Friday.

A friend has taken over management of the old Macedonia Hotel which is now a wine bar/gallery/antiques place/café. It was a great place. Everything was spread over four floors and there was a traditional balcony around two sides of the second story where you could sit out and enjoy fabulous views (until the sun went down of course).

I bought a 1940/50s Diana Pottery vase because I needed a souvenir. Allan fell a bit in love with an organ (the kind you play) and I’m keen (without being too pushy) for him to buy it. It’ll look really groovy and he’ll enjoy playing it and restoring the bits that will inevitably need restoring.

The event was an official ‘opening’ party for the new management of the establishment. We were greeted with a complementary glass of champagne and lots and lots of yummy finger food throughout the night. It was a great vibe and I hope they do really well there. I’ll be going back to enjoy a browse and afternoon tea in the not too distant future.

    Cute excuse,
    “I bought a 1940/50s Diana Pottery vase because I needed a souvenir.”

    I will have to remember that one. I can just see me walking into Basement records and “needing a souvenir” on a regular basis.

    Sounds like a great night. Wish I could have made it down for it. Can’t wait to see the vase.
