Have you noticed the string of food trucks and smelt the deliciousness that fills the air on the Yarra front!?! Do you know what this means!?! Melbourne Street Eatz is back!!! And oh my goodness do we need to get out of the house!!! (I think I may have already used my exclamation mark quota, nah I’m excited, sorry, not sorry!!!!)
Over the next four months, from Thursday through to Sunday, there is a range of food trucks, drinks flowing from two bars and special activities/events. From calamari or curry to tofu and tacos, you can taste flavours from all around the world as well as some good, homegrown comfort food. There will also be Dj sets, games and live entertainment. There will be plenty of day beds to lounge on and you can also hire blankets if it gets chilly at night.
And given the present time, this could be a good shout for doing something and being outdoors; urgh covid is STILL running amuck (Grrrrr). And talking about living in Covid times, Melbourne Street Eatz has a Covid Safe plan too. Don’t forget to stay safe people!
