Royal Randwick

There is every chance Prince William and Princess Kate (or Katie as the kids are calling her) will attend the Easter Carnival today at Royal Randwick.
This is the first chance the public will have to see the amazing new $150M pavilion that dwarfs the old Member's Stand.

On show for the young and hip is The Stables, a private member's club that should be a much sought after venue. Membership is rumoured to be $2000 a year but this is one of the nicest clubs we have been in as we discovered at a recent launch party. Lots of expensive paneled walls, billiard rooms and private booths and rooms, a Moet & Chandon Bar and 2 sensational balconies, one looking over the mounting ring and one with a sensational view of the race track. The Stables is the brainchild of bar and restaurant mogul John Duncan - pictured right with wife Angela - (he's the nephew of the actress Carmen Duncan) and ex-partner of Fraser Short. Together they opened some of Sydney's smartest nite spots like Surry Hill's Winery before going their separate ways last year
Looks like a winner to us.

Tom The (Sexy) Chippie

His career started as a phone-in to radio hosts Merrick and Rosso in 2000 while on a bricklaying job in Manly. Many years on and he's become a major TV star fronting numerous lifestyle programs and has done a stint on Dancing With The Stars ( a measure of sure success in Oz).

He is of course the impossibly handsome Tom Williams who was such a success on his call to the comedy duo that he was given he's own slot on their show.

Tom presented his first book last night at the Memphis Room (dedicated to Elvis) in The Winery in Surry Hills and a host of TV pals called by to toast Tom's success. The book : DIY Around The Home is chock full of handy household carpentry tips like how to soundproof a room or build a window planter box.

Tom is also a windsurfing champ and has fronted shows like Gladiators, Australia's Greatest Athlete, The Great Outdoors . Basically, he's a major sex symbol!.

Homage to Elvis
Those who turned up to sip some excellent wine from Wild Oats included Rachel Finch, Larry Emdur, Merrick Watts, fashion commentator Melissa Hoyer and Laura Csortan with her boyfriend Chris Joannou from the band Silverchair while ACP publisher Peter Holder launched the book.

# The Winery is another Fraser Short successful venture along with Kit & Kaboodle in Kings Cross and Gazebo in Potts Point. Fraser has just taken over the Brooklyn Hotel near Circular Quay. Tomorrow a host of writers and TV presenters gather at the Gazebo to celebrate it's birthday.
