Home' InDaily : September 16th 2010 Contents THE JADE MONKEY 29a Twin Street 8232 0950
Tucked neatly into Twin Street and existing solely for live music is one of Adelaide's best little
night spots -- The Jade Monkey. Famed owners Zac and Naomi Coligan know a thing or three
about live music -- the couple also make two halves of acclaimed local band the Sea Thieves.
"Jade Monkey was designed with bands in mind," says Zac, "the stage is raised so acts can
be seen no matter where you're sitting." So nd yourself a gig (there's rockers, hip-hoppers and
plenty more), secure a possie at one of the cosy candle-lit tables and soak up the sounds.

ADELAIDE COMEDY CELLAR 68 Grenfell Street, 8232 5688
In 2010, Adelaide Comedy Cellar is celebrating its 21st year downstairs in Da Costa Arcade. "We are thinking of throwing a
party so we can drink," says owner Dave Flanagan. The cellar is steeped in comedic history -- Adam Hills worked there in the
90's and Fiona O'Loughlin is said to have performed her rst gig there. With the distinct feel of an American style stand-up
comedy club, and a ripping show menu, the cellar is the place to round up your favourite people and have a damn good laugh.
CHRIS JARMER @ AIR
Adelaide Central Plaza,
North Terrace 8305 3271
Adelaide chef Chris Jarmer has the good
oil for those bored of supermarket-bought
salad dressings. With his delectable drizzles
routinely causing a lunchtime spin at Air, it's
no wonder his own take-home line has been
a hit for years. Our favourite is the classic
Sticky Balsamic -- a nger-licking compliment
to seafood, meat, vegetarian dishes or simply
mixed in olive oil and dukka to accompany a
plate with crusty bread. Chris Jarmer's Sticky
Balsamic, White Balsamic salad dressing
and Asian dressing retail for $14.50/375ml.
