February Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down
Up – Helicopters – Great for those of you who can afford to own one, especially when you need to get from Peats Ridge to Berrara.
Down – Seaweed – Going for a swim is particularly unpleasant when the water is chock-full of kelp.
Up – Aqua Ear – Anyone who frequents the beach will attest to the greatness of this stuff when it comes to clearing the ears.
Down – Restaurant No-Shows – If you book a big table at a restaurant then fail to show up you are a prick.
Up – Jimbaran – This little bit of Bali on Avoca Street in Randwick satisfies the cravings in between Indo trips.
Down – The Death of the Burger – Getting a cheap burger in Bondi got a lot tougher last month when Top Tucker closed its doors.
Up – Cloudstreet – The Tim Winton book turned pay TV series is on DVD and we recommend buying it.
Down – Shark Hysteria – A zillion people go to the beach, a couple get bitten and all of a sudden the papers are going nuts.
Up – February 29 – It only comes about once every four years so we really should celebrate it.
