July 12

The day of the Golden Ticket.

Breakfast with Jace.

A trip to Bon Scott’s grave with Jace, Ryan and Ally.

Little Creatures brewery in Fremantle.

Whirlwind visit to see Justin Hamilton at his hotel and bemuse him with tales of Crispin Glover.

Stunning restaurant,Β Pata Negra. Old friend and fabulous chef, Kurt Sampson, running the kitchen and menu – totes delish-balls. (I know it’s Dry July so I shouldn’t be spruiking alcohol but I had the most amazing Spanish cider there too – Lagar de Camin)

Octagon Theatre for some quality entertainment – Justin doing support for Wil Anderson’s Wilarious. Classy, expertly crafted comedy.

Hula Bula Bar – tiki cocktail fun across the road from our hotel.

And at midnight, Ryan’s actual birthday began…


A big fun day out.

And I’ll leave it at that – but let’s just say I made the most of my Golden Ticket and am looking forward to having a Dry rest of July.
