So clicking around some of the area food blogs I find this review of local Italian eatery and Labor powerbroker-hangout Tuscany Restaurant, which I haven’t been to in ages, in which the clientele is described as
… local couples – the rescue/renovate brigade – lured in by reasonable (under $30) mains and a tasteful décor tweak …
Oh my. A more cuttingly accurate description of the locals here along the border country of Stanmore-Petersham would be hard to find.
All weekend long all one hears around here is the whine of power tools weilded by web designers, public servants, and creative types; it’s a wonder the sound isn’t more frequently punctuated with the shrill cries of ambulances.
Thankfully Mrs Prick recently announced that she thought it was ridiculous on a cost-benefit basis for us to waste our time doing DIY and that we’re going to get the pros in to finish off Stately Prick Manor. Otherwise I would have to take umbrage even as I quietly acknowledged, “I resemble that remark!”
In any case, it sounds like Tuscany is worth a follow-up visit.
