It could be contentious... Since constantly coming and going in the last five years, every time I visit, I see my hometown Perth with new eyes. But it isn't just my perspective. Perth is evolving and its super exciting to see it flourish socially and creatively. Here is my piece on Rediscovering Northbridge for Ninemsn Elsewhere Ninemsn featuring The Bird, Chicho Gelato, Pleased to Meet You, Sneaky Tony's, Chimek, Mechanics' Institute. Small Bar., Northbridge Brewing Company by Beerland and Ezra Pound. Enjoy the read and let me know what you think of the change felt in Northbridge :) Please share Perth friends!
