Inner West Whispers – 218

Election odds and predictions, pigs, pastry and wedding bells...

• In the truest of all polls, the betting ring, Centrebet think that Albanese might sure up his margin. At $5, Grayndler is the second favourite to be the safest Labor seat after Batman – assuming Liberal is ahead of the Greens and the Libs don’t preference the Greens. At $5, this is good value. Other good value bets include the Wikileaks getting a Senate seat at $9 and loser conceding defeat between 10pm and 10.59pm at $2.50.

Local astrologers have also made predictions on election outcomes. By looking at birth dates of candidates and the tension between the planets over Canberra on polling day, the heavens have predicted an ALP win in Grayndler and Laundy (Liberal) taking the seat of Reid after John Murphy’s failure to hold onto the hearts of one of the most diverse seats in the country.

After the comedown of the Newtown market stoush between locals, businesses and Marrickville Council, there are questions being asked about the impact of Orange Grove Markets on Darling Street’s retail strip.

The Pig and the Pastry has been well received by Petersham locals after (some say snobby) fine dining restaurant Blancmange closed its doors in May. The Pig and the Pastry is one of those uber-cool raw finishing kind of places that keep popping up in the Inner West.

The Royal Hotel has finished its fitout and is due to open its doors, complete with a new restaurant called the Royal Botanical. It’s about time!

Congratulations to Haberfield beautician and two-time Ciao covergirl, Rita Mesiti, whose Summer Hill beau Greg Ferraina proposed to her at the X-Factor live show on Sunday with the help of Nova 96.9’s Fitzy and Wippa. Lucky for Greg – after Rita’s mother gave her blessing from the judge’s seat – Rita said yes! The pair have won $10,000 to put towards their dream wedding.
