A New Street Art is UP

“Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop.” – Alice in Wonderland

The “New Normal” for the restaurant business in Melbourne is outdoor seating. Rutledge Lane, a street off the famous and ever busy Hosier Lane, has opened UP two new Pop UP restaurants for Covid safe dining.

Now, a new Street art is UP (I saw it being put up 2 weeks ago), with walls repainted to an Alice in Wonderland theme for both Grainshaker and Tres a Cinco Cantina. The laneway is more family friendly and I guess this area would be off limits to tagging since it is enclosed. I have to go back and try this one time.

    Oh isn’t this fabulous. The book they’ve chosen feels very apt. This new world is so very strange, does feel like we’ve disappeared down the rabbit hole with Alice!

    1. Teresa says:

      Nice comparison, Becky. It does feel like a different place.
