Yes, really - this is our 1000th post at where's the beef! To celebrate, we're...
1. Dressing up.
We've spruced up our layout a little. Oh, and we have some NEW ILLUSTRATIONS BY PETER CARNAVAS. Aren't they grand?
Pete is a writer and illustrator of children's books, with his latest publication - The Important Things - having just been launched last weekend. He's also a long-time friend of ours and we're thrilled with his interpretation of what this blog is about. You can find out more about Pete's work here.
2. Inviting you to celebrate with us.
Come share a celebratory drink with us! We'll be at Grumpy's Green (125 Smith St Fitzroy) from 3pm on Sunday May 23. They've got comfy couches, a lengthy eco-friendly drinks list and crinkle-cut chips. I'll bring cake.
(If you're not in Melbourne, don't worry - we've got something fun planned for you too.)
3. Joining the Twitterverse
For those of you who didn't notice us slinking onto the scene a couple of weeks ago, we're now twittering as @herestheveg . Expect quick'n'dirty updates on what we're eating, links to stuff we like and live Masterchef ranting.
Housekeeping, woo! We've been adding some new favourites to the where's the best? list, such as
We're also sad to note the closure of some favourite restaurants - Bowl of Soul and Idea Fine Food and Wine are no more.
If you're reading this on our home page, you might also have noticed that we've rearranged some of our links and updated our profile photos. (I've gone and had a haircut since Matt took that photo in April, so focus on Michael's luscious ginger locks if you're looking out for us at Grumpy's!)
We hope these changes will make visiting where's the beef? all the more fun and functional, and that you'll pop by and say hi on the 23rd!
