With Summer fully kicked in, I ventured out after feeling pretty sick recently. Tough to get a park, heaps of people and so bloody hot. This was 11:00am!!
Jay Kay of Jamiroquai once said, “I thought I was going to the beach bar, not the Bar Beach!” while on stage in Newcastle.
The Wikipedia entry for Bar Beach is a little interesting too….
“Bar Beach is an inner city suburb of Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia, located 1.6 km (1.0 mi) southwest of Newcastle’s central business district abutting the beach of the same name.
Near the north-end of the beach there is a small burger bar selling hand-cut chips. If one wishes to purchase a meal there, be prepared for waits up to 1 hour for a simple burger or 30 mins for an ice-cream. Not ideal if on a road trip. Bar-bar-bar bar-barbara-anne."
