Dickson’s corner of doom claims Barcode

The site in Dickson off Wooley St, since the much lamented TurkOz closed, has been a graveyard of ill considered ventures.

The loser’s parade has been marked by terrible service, awful food, high prices, and confusing concepts.

The latest, a gay bagel bar cum karaoke joint (I kid you not), called Barcode has pulled up stumps according to Same Same.

With the news last week of their PA getting nicked one hopes it was not too recently or too overly insured.

It would be nice if someone with a clue could make something of that space.

Their website says much the same.

I’d buy a book called The Wit, Wisdom and Wonderful Words of Joel Barcham.

Poets need blank notebooks with pretty covers.

Ha ha quite. And I think he really is rather a likely subject of “don’t talk” and “keep your hat on” … ; )

I too was wondering what was going to be between the “contents” page and the “index” page..
The foreword would surely be only two words at most?

Bad feng shui. If it were any good, there would be a row of cats waving through the window right now.

Someone should make it into a LGBT Asian (or Asian LGBT, for Asians or those looking for Asian bum chums) take-away, it will thrive. After all, this is Dickson. And Canberra’s inner north is full of ghays. 😀

Feel free to use and we’ll look into it.

Whatever happened to the practice of putting memorable quotes at the top of Riot Act homepage?

New things seem to keep opening up there in the winter and not making it into the warmer months. If you haven’t got a plan to get you at least to the end of your first summer, you haven’t got a hope

Gay bagels, bar cum, karaoke & joints…what possibly could have gone wrong?

I think this is one of the most profound statements I’ve read here or anywhere. 🙂 May I use it?

If there was an RA tee shirt available with this printed on it, I would certainly buy one.

I went in for a bagel, and I love bagels.

There were no bagels.

“a gay bagel bar cum karaoke joint ” – this is why the inner north of Canberra is the envy of the known world.

Any bar with reasonable prices and service should be able to make a killing in that location.

+1. Get back to basics. Decent food and drink, sensible prices, maybe get some local bands in on a Friday and Saturday night.

I can’t believe it’s not English.

The irony was that whenever goosepig went in for a bagel they had none.

In a bagel bar.

Maybe it was a metaphor?

Perhaps the landlord should consider lowering their initial asking rent so that the next venture has a fighting chance of making it through the critical first year.

Who’d a thunk that there would be little demand for gay bagels in Dickson.

Any bar with reasonable prices and service should be able to make a killing in that location.
