The public holidays of Easter have a certain hierarchy. To use a wildly inappropriate metaphor; Good Friday is Michael Jackson (the superstar), Easter Sunday is Janet Jackson (slightly less of a superstar but still bigger than most) and Easter Monday is Jermaine Jackson (who in the what now?).

As such, today’s question for Melbourne is; how can every cafe, on Lygon Street no less, be closed on Easter Monday? I’m pretty sure they were all open on Good Friday and Easter Sunday, and yet I had to walk for half an hour, in the rain, before I found a Muslim cafe that cares not for this Jesus fellow and his death/resurrection and was thus content to serve me coffee and eggs benedict (with pulled beef rather than ham, naturally).

Maybe they're just big Jermaine Jackson fans here.
