TKR (Temp Kitchen Rent) is an innovative, sustainable and unusual business idea from Gus Weinberger. It caters to a surprising array of clientele – hospitality, food, events, education, advertising and television industries. And perhaps that dream dinner party inspired by MKR?
In planning a new food venture, Weinberger realised that there was a need for this innovation.
The Festival launched 30 April at Bistro 80 at The Star. More than 200 fanciers of wine, food and art attended, and Lord Mayor Clover Moore spoke about the the attractions of the Pyrmont Ultimo peninsula and the growth of the Festival, noting how every year the launch audience grows.
Sydney Heritage Fleet, a Pyrmont Chamber (PUCC) member and not for profit org, will stage a classical music concert featuring the peninsula's maritime history in the foyer of Wharf 17 with Huntington Estate Wines. Gold coin donation.
The City of Sydney's support for grassroots culture has helped a fledgling Pyrmont theatre group grow into a star act. The Pyrmont Players, which began in January, has grown to more than 20 members and is on the lookout for more actors, set designers, costume makers and stage managers to join their troupe.
