Cadiz

Alasdair – of Mandurah sends a picture – not of Crabtown but of …Cadiz. Well it looks better than any bar on Beaufort. They are all played.

    I guess donga bars is the next logical step from sea containers.

    Hey, at least it’s not locked, right?

    “Played” is overused, past its use by date and sniffing Nurries nuts

        It is very popular with Perth’s amoeba population. Too popular in fact.

        Well theres pop up container bars there already you know , to soften one up for future highrise fun and to keep the area a bit populated .

        Former govt says 7 million go there every year : now THATS popularity … especially for a future flood zone

        Ok to like it while we can .

        Lets really like the snarled traffic in Thomas Street ever since EQ shipping container bar site development cut the foreshore drive too .

        Gives a nice urban feel to the rest of formerly dullsville

          I wonder which one of the Emperor’s courtiers came up with that 7 million figure? Great work like that should be rewarded.

      • Those popularity figures were obviously faked.

          Undoubtedly. But it’s still been very popular, considering there’s fuck all there. It just seems so boringly easy to moan about it. Why should I give a shit that Thomas Street is busy because we removed the highway from the river front?

            Ok heres why bento you should give a shit :

            Thomas street has become so incredibly popular with thousands of idling motorists being kept on a 2x daily basis 30 minutes or more between 2 traffic signals listening to music inhaling hydrocarbons and raging at each other instead of spending that time home with family friends community .

            Meanwhile kids get poisoned by water at a throwaway urban design p r feature popular with microorganisms…

            Jaded sybarites get designer tapas n beers served from popular shipping containers set up in a new place or at fun fairs they might find deliciously and popularly temporary …

            City of perth either does or doesnt get tax revenues from future popular waterfront real estate development once highrise residential popular with o/s and interstate people gets put up and highrise office popular with no one except at expense of existing crappy office oversupply elsewhere in
            CBD …

            If this isnt enough , more to come

              1. You fix Thomas Street by getting people out of their cars, not making it faster. One part of bringing that behavioral change is making it a less attractive option.
              2. The water problem was one of implementation and oversight. Nothing fundamentally flawed about the concept. My kids fucking LOVE the water playground in Forrest Place.
              3. What’s wring with that? They’re having the wrong kind of fun?
              4. What the fuck are you talking about? A substantial proportion of apartments sell to residents in close proximity, in my experience. And you’re suggesting that we should just stick with the crappy old office space, rather than renewing?

              You’ve mistaken boring moaning for world-weary cynicism.
