In bang on 24 hours I managed to eat (and/or drink) at every good place in New Acton. Breakfast with the best girl I know from Dubbo at Mocan, late lunch at A Baker and drinks at Parlour with the other member of my bike gang (aka fellow drain rat). I also had a solo cocktail at Hotel Hotel while waiting for my Bill Murray Lost In Translation moment, but failed at that - which I'm okay with. Finally, breakfast at Hotel Hotel with the bike gang member and another lovely friend who doesn't have a stupid nickname (but is wonderful without one).
Great way to spend the weekend. If you are in Canberra stay at the Nishi apartments. They are the best!
