Is it just me, or is there something odd about this poster outside the new "Newkor" Karaoke restaurant in Dixon St?


That singer looks somewhat … uncomfortable. Perhaps it’s something to do with the item on the menu that’s described only as "WARNING! Extreeeemley! Hot and Spicychicken" [very sic].

In other news, the re-opening of Happy on Friday night was a happy occasion indeed. I was puzzled by some of the outfits at first, but if I’d read my co-fly Kowhai’s previous post I would have seen the "Dress up like something that can fly!" instruction. At least I was already in costume.

The relocated stage sets up a different dynamic, and the feeling was low-key, friendly bohemian rather than po-faced avant-garde or desparate hipster. Speaking of Mighty Mighty, they were marred that night by a godawful frat-boy band that made Blink 182 seem deep and intellectual. We still love us some Mighty, of course, but it’ll be interesting to see how the new Happy does in comparison.
