We are already over half way into the year and what have you accomplished? Not much?
Don’t fret, we’ve found 5 events this week that’ll get you doing things that you can brag about on social media (because that’s what life is about, right…)
Big Smoke BBQ Pop-Up
4 Joyner St, Moorabin
A night full of smokey barbequed meat and award winning beer. Big Smoke BBQ has collaborated with 2 Brothers Brewery to bring you guys a pop-up platter restaurant. This Saturday 11th of August at 6pm and 7.45pm you could be indulging in some mouth-watering meats and downing quality beers.
The platters are curated to share between 2 people and are piled up with Texas beef brisket, Carolina pulled hog, potato salad, bread and so much more! You can even expect a bit of live music for you to enjoy.
For only $80 per platter you’d be crazy to miss out on this epic meal!
Casino Royale Night @ The Deck Geelong
2-4 Gheringhap St, Geelong
Chuck on that ball dress again, wear that black tie and be 100% class for two and a half hours of games, bottomless cocktails and canapes! The Deck in Geelong is hosting what could be one of the best nights of the year.
From 7.30pm-10pm this Thursday the 9th of August, expect some black jack and roulette and possibly the best feature, the endless alcohol. And don’t stress, the in-house DJ will continue the tunes into the night, so your fancy frock or suit won’t go to waste!
Gather your squad and practice your best James Bond impersonation because this event is only $49 and one you cannot miss.
Whisky Inspired High Tea @ Stamford Plaza
111 Little Collins St, Melbourne
Do you like Whisky? Do you like cake? If your answer is yes (would it never be a no?), then this event is perfect for you!
This Saturday the 11th of August from 2pm-5pm the Stamford Plaza is hosting a Whisky High Tea. There’ll be an array of sweet and savoury delights all inspired by or infused with a variety of whiskies. You can expect bourbon chocolate brownies, whisky espresso ice cream and so much more.
Tickets are strictly limited so make sure you book ASAP!
One Night in Vegan Tulum @ Matcha Mylkbar
72A Acland St, St Kilda
I think we all know Matcha Mylkbar for their colourful burger buns, lattes and skull-shaped smoothies. But wait, they are taking it to a whole other level.
This Thursday the 9th of August you could be indulging in an 8 course Mexican themed vegan menu! Your tastebuds will be taken on a tour to Tulum as you pretend to be holidaying in the hot Mexican sun rather than in cold (and a lil depressing) Melbourne. They’ve even created a brand new dessert, expect churros and a dulce de leche ice cream sandwich with cumquats and coconut!
They’ve also got a selection of cocktails, beer and wines available to transform that drab Thursday night to one you won’t forget (or will you?). Make sure you book ASAP as it’s expected to sell out.
1 Convention Centre Pl, South Wharf
Who doesn’t love shoes?! This next event is perfect for those sneaker-heads out there as well as all the average Joe’s who might need a new pair of shoes. The largest convention centre in Australia is about to host one of the biggest sneaker events ever.
Imagine over 100,000 different pairs of sneakers and 200 vendors selling the most sought after heat. You can even bring along your new and used sneakers to sell or trade and buy the shoes available. Sneaker Con are even providing you guys with a team of experts who can examine the authenticity of your shoes for free! So bring along that bargain you snagged at Camberwell Market that may or may not be a rip off and find out for sure.
From 12-7pm this Saturday the 11th of August head down to the Melbourne Convention Centre for sneaker heaven!
