Once again, summer languor and sloth have coincided such that it has been ages since the last update. Paradoxically though, it has been a reasonably busy period for events and activity at the Orbis and The Orb.

We are pleased to have new signs up at both locations. These are hand done by Tony Purcell, up and coming local artist and friend who also did the scooter murals and internal signage in the store. We are convinced they are a great investment based on Tony's future success. He has just had an exhibition in LA which you can view on his website via our Links page.

Last month's Tastes of Southern Italy dinner was great fun. We had loads of Antipasti, two pasta dishes, great fig salad and rather insanely served up 20 whole branzini. The crowd did a fantastic job with the head and tail on serving, even the squeamish! Chocolate walnut cake and limoncello gelato seemed a fitting ending full description and a few pics on the food page.

We are looking forward to a Sunday evening alternate music concert on the 19th. Animal Flag and Jesse Dinaro will be stopping on their acoustic tour. Check them out at their websites.
