Sir Geyer's last stand.


At the end of an era, we say farewell to Sir Geyer from the Castles South wing.  After 15 years of residence in the Nic-Nak Castle grounds he has upped stumps and moved his menagerie far across the Acland hill to central St Kilda.  Now residing at the uber cool address of Roland S Howard Lane, we have bid him a teary au revoir.  But prior to its dismantlement, here is a survey of his dungeon decor as it was.




































But on and up, we await the unveiling of the new abodes interiors.

Dining @ Rabbit Blues.



Just a stones throw over the moat and across the carpark from The Castle is one of our favourite new dining destinations.  Rabbit Blues has opened on the site of a previous Chinese restaurant, but we have been drawn to this new enterprise owned by our best new friend Ken. Great classic Aussie Chinese favourites re-imagined minus the MSG. 





Great for Sir Geyer's birthday festivities.





Our friend Ken, sorting us out at Rabbit Blues,
92c Acland Street St Kilda.
