rainy sunday afternoons...

...we better get used to them with Autumn now undeniably upon us.
So what to do on such rain and wind swept days? How about a movie matinee in one of Tricity's cosy, alternative cinemas?
W Starym Kadrze cafe not only has an impressive coffee, tea and dessert menu, but also shows a variety of classic and cult films every day at 2pm, 5pm and 8pm - Comedy Mondays, Icon Tuesdays, Horror Wednesdays, Science fiction Thursdays, Musical Fridays, Oscar Saturdays and Family Sundays. Check their facebook page or log in on their site to view their weekly programme. 3/4 Grobla I Street, Gdańsk 
Klub Filmowy at 1 Jerzego Waszyngtona Street, Gdynia is another great alternative to mainstream cinema, as are old favourites Cinemas Helikon and Kameralne on Długa Street in Gdańsk.
Happy Sunday!


the ribbons concerto

Have you been to see the wonderful "Ribbon Concerto" open-air installation by graphic artist Jerzy Janiszewski?
Don't miss it!
It will remain on display at the Wielki Młyn Square until 30 September 2012.
If you really want to see the ribbons dance, go on a windy day ;-)

st dominic's fair

Last weekend, after three weeks of festivities, arts, crafts and roaring trade, Gdańsk bid farewell to yet another St Dominic's Fair.
Until next year...

step back in time

This lovely 'time machine' recently popped up on Gdańsk's cafe scene.

Wile away the afternoon at Retro cafe with a friend or a good book at one of the big windows overlooking the garden in the back... listening to 1920's melodies and soaking up the retro atmosphere created in this comfy, softly lit space.

The menu has over 30 varieties of tea, delicious coffees and retro cocktails, and the daily cake selection is a treat. My home-made apple pie was served warm with vanilla ice cream and a generous dollop of fresh cream... yum!

Retro is open daily 11am - 11pm, 5/6 Piwna Street, Gdańsk
