Long Black, home

Drive east along Alexandra Pde.  Somewhere near Wellington St, you will see a sign on the left, advertising, "LAST COFFEE TILL FRANKSTON."
It's true.  Sort of.  If you take the Eastlink from Ringwood.  Before the Eastlink opened, you would had to have been a loony to drive to Frankston via Ringwood.  Unless of course you were going via Car City, in which case you would have to be a loony to go to Frankston via anywhere else.
It's also the last traffic lights until Frankston.  That's how lazy you have to be to take the Eastlink in this case: you would rather drive twice the distance, but at least you don't have to move your foot anywhere near the brake pedal.
