Hearing that this is an official Tour of Duty away trip...

Also a very good chance I'll be back in my hometown in the week leading up to the match, so might be able to help some travelling hools get up close & personal with KGW, pints of pale & a visit to the Victory at Sellicks pre-match.

I've done that. It's a trek and half getting there from the CBD (if you have a few people just get an uber or taxi) on public transport. Was pretty interesting.

That's the North line up to Elizabeth / Lizbeff & Gawler so no wonder it was interesting.

 

Vili's cafe near the airport is my recommendation, pies straight off the production line and into the oven - they then stab the lid with sauce and mix it with the meat instead of circling it on top.

Who hands out Michelin stars - they need to visit Vili's.

Not a big fan of Vili's pies, as when I'm back in the Vaterland I prefer pasties.

However what is definitely the go is the sauce under the crust tradition. Stops the crust from going soggy and also ensures no dead horse gets lost in transit from hand to gob

So... I've been told I've got too much Annual Leave accrued... so need to use up some of it.

Therefore I'm now a "maybe" for Radelaide!

Adelaide Still Trying With This Radelaide Thing

CLANCY OVERELL | Editor | CONTACT

Despite decade-long campaigns by Triple J to promote the South Australian capital as a cool and exciting destination for young people, a recent visitor to the town has confirmed she will no longer be referring to Adelaide as ‘Radelaide’.

“I was always keen to visit Adelaide, but I’ve since realised it is not really that rad,” says Laura (29) from Wagga.

According to UrbanDictionary.com, ‘Radelaide’ is slang term for the city of Adelaide, South Australia. Often used by those who enjoy the sights, lifestyle and culture of Australia’s 5th-most-populated city.

After four nights in the southern township, Laura disagrees with this title.

“It’s for newlyweds and nearly-deads. I would not live there unless I was a retired or broke,”

“I actually spent the week visiting churches. How ****ed is that?”

With a very short list of well-known former residents, many locals and tourists can confirm that Adelaide is nice – but not exciting.

Local young person, Tim (19), says that Adelaide isn’t as cool as Triple J announcers would suggest.

“It might have been cool when Jimmy Barnes was still doing pub gigs, or when the Hilltop Hoods were around, but most of the cool people leave this place hey,”

“Farnham wasn’t really that cool to begin with. Other than that, it’s pretty much just Chris Pyne or Julia Gillard – and those two people epitomise uncool,”

With countless failed bids to host the Olympics and FIFA World Cup, even the mayor has publicly admitted that the city is kidding itself.

“[Laughter] Yeah, the IOC have told us that should probably stop bothering with our pipe dreams of hosting an Olympics,” said the mayor.

“As for the Soccer World Cup. I don’t think we’d have enough beds for the players. But we have to at least pretend, right,”

“[Laughter] We don’t mind, though. We’ve got some good cheese and stuff.”

Too long to quote the whole thing

So does that means you're a "yes" for Radelaide?
