A new recruit

I've joined the army.  The Coffee Army that is. Shhhh!  Just between you and me, I'll be anonymously reviewing coffees from local cafes in the north east for the next little while.  It's all part of a voluntary fun project for The Age Melbourne Magazine - scores will be compiled and at the end of the project, winners in various categories will be announced in the Melbourne Magazine, on the blog and at the awards night.  I didn't really need any more excuses to drink more coffee, but now I have one.

Speaking of which, La Trobe University Museum of Art (LUMA) has re-created an art exhibition which celebrates cafe art by Leonard French which was shown at Melbourne's very first European-style cafe - The Legend cafe.  Leonard created a series of panels based on The Legend of Sinbad the Sailor which were donated to the museum in 1999.  LUMA's exhibition is currently on show in their newly renovated library which fittingly, also has its own cafe.
