MOTM – The King of Crown Street
Man of The Moment – Mr. C
The first time I met Mr C at our former place of work (A popular Surry Hills bar) I hated him and I’m 100% sure he wasn’t too fond of me either. Like a pair of ignorant dick heads we made assumptions about each other based on appearance and it wasn’t long before our mutual abhorrence for one another turned into a serious workplace hazard.
I initially thought that Mr C was just another self important Surry Hills hipster who considered himself to be a lot smarter, edgier and cooler than the rest of us.
He thought I was a culturally-vapid bimbo with low self-esteem and the complete inability to think for myself. I admit the revealing American apparel leotard that I used to wear with leather pants for extra tips didn’t do me any favours.
It wasn’t until one night when he was forced to supervise me in lower bar that we realised we had more in common than we thought. The love of Aussie bulldogs and sloth memes just to name a few.
Now Mr C is a good mate of mine and he is not only important to me but to the make up of Surry Hills.
Mr C is to Surry Hills what crema is to espresso. With his undeniably cool eclectic style and an almost unnerving amount of self confidence, Mr T has proved himself to be a major component in the Surry Hills social scene. Having lived smack bang in the middle of Crown Street for the past four years it’s no surprise that every homeless man and barista within a 5km radius knows who he is.
I caught up with Mr. C at Gnome Esspresso and Winebar to chat about Surry Hills, girls and that distinguished womb broom.
As I walked up from Bourke Street I spotted him straight away sitting outside the cafe talking to a pretty young girl who appeared to be sporting a very giddy grin.
I’ve never been attracted to alternative looking men however there is just something about Mr C that can make any girl weak in the knees.
What’s he got that makes him hot?
- A degree in Economics majoring in Environmental Science
- The ability to whisper sweet nothing to you in Spanish (the guy’s practically fluent)
- A wicked sense of humour
- Can make a mean cocktail and generate exceptional over the bar banter
- Hair that rivals Jared Leto’s famous Oscar do
