Fashion gallops into forefront
The crowds were certainly enjoying themselves at the Braidwood Races on Saturday.
Amid the feast of foals and fashion, a crowd of merry men stood out.
The men were particularly bubbly, we can only assume from the fresh healthy outdoor air and sunshine, and had clearly carefully chosen their attire to suit the elegant event.
Red, yellow, blue, orange, mauve - Hawaiian shirts in every colour set this bunch apart as they discussed the place of Fashions on the Field in the light of feminist theory.
Granted, it was not a conversation you would expect from a group of men in Hawaiian shirts, but Braidwood appears to be the town that keeps on giving.
Band of colour
There was plenty of colour around the city over the weekend as Goulburn swung into the Blues Festival groove.
There were none more colourful than ‘The Seven Shirts,’ a group of six men and one woman who come to the event every year. Indeed they stand out in a crowd with their bright beach shirts.
One quipped that they never worry about getting lost because someone will inevitably spot another of their group up the street or at another pub and club and tell them. The group, from Sydney, is also known to frequent Jazz festivals. One of their members told The Post they’d come back to Goulburn even if the Blues festival wasn’t on, such was their fondness for the city.
What a great endorsement!
Right to strike discussed at Politics in the Pub
Politics in the Pub is kicking off again for the year next Monday, February 19 at 6.30pm at the Astor Hotel. Do we have the right strike? Do workers need to be able to withdraw their services to ensure fair and safe working conditions? What does the recent NSW Railways strike ruling mean for you? Alex Claasens (RBTU), James Harker-Mortlock (Nationals) and David Shoebridge (Greens) battle it out with a chance to ask your questions of the panel.
