There must be thousands of Polish-speaking elevators in Poland right? But now there’s one in Brisbane.
When you arrive at either the ground floor or the first floor a soft female voice whispers the floor number in Polish.
Then you notice it’s a Schindler lift and there’s a gentle reminder of mid-20th century Polish history.
This Schindler’s lift will be officially launched with a wide range of entertainment, performances and attractions and a variety of children’s attractions all day next Sunday June 26 at the Polish Club, 10 Marie Street, Milton, as part of the Milton Community Festival.
Special fund raiser for the weekend is at noon on Saturday June 25: a vintage fashion gold-coin auction in aid of local animal rescuers and the Cat Cuddle Café Red Hill.
Intrepid Eat-Drink-Sleep-Shoppers Erin and Pip are in the audience at Matilda the Musical right now at the Schubert Theatre on Broadway, New York City … and this is what they see!
Earlier they visited the famous Brill Building, which in its heyday was home to some of the great singer-songwriters of the 20th century.
We’ve been amazed at the number of top concerts which come to our part of the world. Suzi Quatro was here last month (video by Michelle Bell-Booth on YouTube) and next week (March 15) the Ballarat Symphony Orchestra is playing at Michael Unwin Wines at Beaufort, just up the road to the north-west.
Last Spring we sat in glorious sunshine (the one hot sunny day) next to Lake Wendouree and listened to Jon English, Ross Wilson and Russell Morris for around four hours of solid Oz rock and roll, not to mention blues, all for $50 a head. Thanks to the people at Regional Touring, I guess.
As Autumn starts we ventured out to the Grampians last week, taking in lunch at Halls Gap and then tasting wine on the way back at Beaufort and Michael Unwin’s wines, taking home two bottles of his signature Umbrella Man chardonnay and merlot.
Enjoy Autumn … we’ll have some flowers, more visits and other shopping news next month.
