Restaurant of the Day: Tivoli’s Wood Brick Oven Pizzeria
One of the more unique pizzas we have sampled is the Mare e Monte (by TheHungryDudes) at Tivoli’s. Succulent gulf shrimp, earthy mushrooms, baby spinach, mozzarella, and Tivoli’s house made sauce. The combination may seem odd, but it definitely works.
in 2007 brand new played in brisbane and I was lucky to not only see their show at the tivoli, but to see them do a secret show at the store my friend Paul at the time ran, and I was a little fanboy dipshit but I remember everyone was waiting outside and because I was friends with the owner I got to sit inside and watch brand new warm up, everyone else at the time was running around getting stuff set up and I just sat there and watched them run through some of their tracks and then play “out of reach” by the get up kids and “el scorcho” by weezer to an audience of 1. It was really fucking cool.
The Roman emperor Hadrian (r. AD 117–138) championed
Egyptian and Greek culture. He visited Egypt in AD 130, and after his visit he promoted
faith in the universal god Serapis. The emperor also influenced fashion and
many people purposefully imitated his appearance in portraits.
During his visit to Egypt, his Greek lover
Antinous drowned in the Nile during the Mysteries of Osiris, one of the most important religious events across ancient Egypt. Hadrian founded a
new city, Antinoopolis, at the site of his death. Antinous was venerated as the
god Osiris-Antinous (Antinous-Dionysos in the Greek world). Hadrian
commissioned buildings and sculpture connected with the worship of Osiris for
his villa in Tivoli, near Rome.
After the deification of his drowned lover
Antinous, the new saviour god Osiris-Antinous became popular and images of his
likeness were erected across the empire. His worship offered a sense of
community and the promise of transformation after death. Antinous is shown here
in a traditional Egyptian pose and royal dress. Osiris-Antinous was believed to
have healing powers and his veneration lasted long after the death of Hadrian.

So I finally met my internet friend from Norway for the first time and it was so great ;v; ! ! ! We went to tivoli in Copenhagen the last day and before he went home we made a teddy each in the store called ‘Build A Bear’ and named our plush after each other. I miss him already.. <3
Initially, the cabaret scenes themselves had no unifying element. But this changed when Prince recalled the haunting image of a grotesque performer whom he had seen in 1951 at a nightclub near Stuttgart called Maxim’s: “There was a dwarf MC, hair parted in the middle and lacquered down with brilliantine, his mouth made into a bright-red cupid’s bow, who wore heavy false eyelashes and sang, danced, goosed, tickled, and pawed four lumpen Valkyres waving diaphanous butterfly wings.” Kander saw a similar character while attending the Tivoli in Copenhagen, where Marlene Dietrich was performing. There was a diminutive emcee who announced each act in three languages. The collective memories of Prince and Kander gave birth to the androgynous Mephistophelian emcee who has become an epigrammatic image for Cabaret.
