25 Years of The Moon: Marc

Marc_Final
This is Marc, our cook. You’ve probably met him. He’s been at The Moon for almost as long as the moon itself. We’d say it’s been about 23 years of The Moon’s 25 years. Marc first came to work at The Moon as a kitchen hand for Erik, who was the owner for 8 years. We were privileged enough to meet Marc 13 years ago and he’s been part of our family ever since. Marc is loyal, incredibly hard working and totally lovely. He’s a major part of Moon history…and present. #25yearsofTheMoon

25 Years of The Moon – Halloween 2006

Many moons ago back in 2006 we celebrated our third year of ownership with our first Halloween party! It was one helluva night, full of unique Perth characters. Plus local acts Snowman, Tomas Ford and Silkie Krusher & The Sex all rocked out hard. Tomas Ford also used to climb all over his audience members back in these days, so there was much hilarity. Have a look at these photos and see if you spot anyone you know?

The reason we celebrate Halloween is that we first got the keys to the door on the 31st of October 2003 so it’s kind of a big deal for us. This year we’re celebrating our 13th year of ownership and The Moon’s 25th birthday so it’s only fitting to celebrate in true moon fashion.. Stay tuned for more info.

25 years of The Moon. Photos from our 1st year.

This year The Moon has been open for 25 years! We’ll be having a big Halloween party in October to celebrate.

Here’s a little flash back from the 1st year of The Moon, back in 1991. Our friend and regular contributor to Perth Poetry Club, Lorenna Grant took these photos of a local poet. She doesn’t recall his name. We’re so appreciative to receive a little piece of Moon memorabilia! If you have any old photos please send them through to info@themoon.com.au

Closed Tuesday January 26

Hey everybody! We have decided to close today Tuesday the 26th of January. Unfortunately one of our Fringe shows was cancelled due to illness and it made more sense for us to give our staff a day off. We’ll be open again from 11am Wednesday the 27th of January. Sorry for any inconvenience caused! xo

Green World Revolution

We recently went to visit the inner-city farm of our micro herb supplier, Green World Revolution. These guys are secretly tucked away in Gladstone St Perth. We had trouble parking because there was a crane blocking the one-way street and a mobile coffee van parked in the laneway behind the brothel. We finally reached the gate signed ‘Gladstone Street Farm’ and entered this urban oasis. The proprietor, Toby, is a friggin’ awesome individual who runs this “not-for-profit, environmental social enterprise.” He’s about 7ft tall and the brains behind this micro-herb, sprout & micro-vegetable farm, servicing some of Perth’s best restaurants and creating jobs for the long term unemployed. From the solar-powered irrigation system to the packaging crate shingles on the sheds, Green World Evolution is recycling, growing and innovating.

We already use their herbs in our weekend brunch menu, but we’re playing with ways to feature them in our new summer food menu out in January.DSC02577
