FUN FOR $50


    By Kelly Kayne

    What to do on a sunny St Patricks’ day birthday?



    There is nothing like a swim at Williamstown beach on a sunny day. It’s a ten minute drive from Brooklyn and it’s just beautiful at any time of the day! Jumping straight off the steps at Crystals is amazing, no matter what the weather is.


    FOOTSCRAY RECORDS – $15 Roni Size record

    A quick shower on the way home before heading to Footscray. It’s hard not to stop by this record shop. It has a great selection of new and used records and there is always something great playing in the background. I bought a Roni Size record for $15 – bargain!


    LITTLE FOOT BAR – $10 Gin and tonic

    It was cocktail time before dinner so we shared a gin tasting paddle at Little Foot. Sitting in the sun, sipping a tasty drink in the courtyard, listening to people relaxing their way into the weekend. So good!



     Grabbing a take away coffee because it’s my birthday! The Kiosk is a gem, right on the water and their coffee, smoothies and baked treats are all delicious. Great service too considering how busy they get.


    SAPA HILLS – $20 Salt and Pepper Tofu

    This place does a roaring trade on weekends and it was crazy busy but I had to have their salt and pepper tofu. It’s the most delicate and tasty dish. My perfect birthday meal.
