Tapas In Lismore La Vida

Start with tapas of baby beets, housemade Labneh and caramelised fennel OR herb, corn and ricotta fritters with white onion jam?
Follow it with slow cooked osso buco, potato gnochhi fritti, orange pangratatto, and shaved parmesan OR Paella with Northern Rivers seafood, peas, saffron, chilli, chicken and chorizo (which my friend tells me is pronounced “Chor-ritho”)? And go all out and decadent and finish with lime ginger crema Catalana, vanilla jelly, strawberry salad and mandarin sorbet OR churros, cinamon and chocolate dipping sauce?!? These are just a sample of the delicious delights at La Vida Bar & Restaurant – now offering “2 For 20 In 30” – two courses for $20 in 30 minutes. (please check first if the full menu is on offer for this deal). Lunch on the run! yum.

Library Lovers Unite

Goodness! Two Biggest in one day: Australia’s Biggest Single Storytelling Session and the Cancer Council’s Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea at the Byron Bay Lighthouse – both this Wednesday 22nd May. Be at one or both – but above all, read your kid/s a story that night and every night after that…..

books2 swing1I don’t know if the title of this story should be most playful or indeed most cool, but check out these fab library designs from around the world and think about/write to Council asking why our local Goonellabah Branch looks set to close and the new Byron Library, 20 odd years in the waiting, kinda looks just like more books on shelves without the wow factor that these spaces create.
