Whether you greet the occasion with a sense of cynicism, romance or repulsion, there is no doubt Valentine’s Day provides a clear and present reminder of what we should be (or aren’t doing) with our lives.  While couples across the cities may be cosying up to their significant other with a belly full of wine and a head full of naughty ideas, others may prefer to celebrate their wonderful independence by avoiding restaurants filled with tables for two.  Whichever side of the fence you fall on, we’ve got you covered.

It’s like a long, winding drive down the Clyde listening to 1053 2CA, a few buttons loose on the summer shirt, an arm dangling out the window, awaiting that summer breeze to hit you.

Coming Soon: The Elk and Pea

by The Editor

There’s been talk for a few months, though a Facebook post and recent tweet from @parlourroom it looks as though plans are very much moving forward to add a third venue to the Parlour/Knighty group.  That would a sweet relief to the Canberra martini set, who have struggled over the last 25 months since the unfortunate fire at New Acton.
