NORPA Opens Revamped Lismore City Hall – Happy As Larry

WOW, I was at the opening night for the NORPA 2013 program last Friday night and thus the opening  of the revamped Lismore City Hall. It looks fantastic inside. Everyone is talking about it. The brand new bar and pre-theatre mingling area is great. You need to buy tickets to see a show and check it out. The new Box Office is on ground level, easy to park right outside in Bounty St. You can also book tickets online, or via the phone 1300 066 772 (a little $2.20 is required via phone). 3 x show subscribers save up to 15%.  AND groups of 4 or more people pay concession prices! that’s cool. Grab friends, partners, family whoever and get on down and check it out.

Next up is “Happy As Larry” – $15 ticket price for school kids, for the 3.30 matinee on Saturday August 3 – selling fast!

“Created by award-winning Australian choreographer, Shaun Parker, this powerful performance combines an intoxicating, free-flowing mix of ballet, break-dance, roller-skating and highly physical contemporary dance……Set to a vibrant electro-acoustic score, the performers look at how each personality type gives rise to the idea of happiness. Fun and danger is brought to the fore in this innovative and moving dance work.”hapaslarryJul13

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.
