Monday 6 November
ALT Cusine POP-UP AT GYPSY CARAVAN
Just because it’s Monday, there is no reason to get the sweatpants out. Although we love a bit of Netflix and chill, we love adventurous pop-ups a whole lot more. Foodies, be sure to head to the Gypsy Caravan and experience the collaborative creative stylings of Cassia Head Chef, Alok Vasanth, and Orphan Kitchen’s Head Chef, Conor Wiremu. The event, in which is claiming to “throw the rule book out the window”, will include combining the skill sets of two top chefs. Alok is known for fresh, Indian cooking, whereas Conor has expertise in all dishes Japanese. And, to make it even better, there will be driiiinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic options).
Tuesday 7 November
OMF Melbourne Cup Day
There’s no place we’d rather spend Melbourne Cup than by a racecourse (Champagne = life, obvs). Thankfully, Ellerslie Racecourse will showcase horse races taking place right before your very eyes—sans plane ticket! This all-but-sold-out event will also showcase mouth-watering eats, an on-site after-party and—of course—they’ll be screening live coverage from the action in Melbs. The prestigious style award will be up for grabs, so don your Sunday best—or, in this case, Tuesday best!
Wednesday 8 November
Vodka Room Special Dinner
Spend your hump day the right way this week! We’ve got the scoop of a five-course meal at Vodka Room you do not want to miss. Designed by Head Chef Murray Wiblin, each dish will be accompanied with matching vodka sips. Yes, please?! The Russian-inspired menu looks like it’s gonna be seriously good. As if Insta-worthy eats and vodka weren’t enough, dessert will be served alongside an espresso martini. Ah, heavenly.
Russian Film Festival
There’s another awesome event this Wednesday also featuring the likes of vodka, but this one is for all our film obsessives! Kicking off a season of five epic nights at the Rialto cinemas, the Russian Film Festival is one you don’t want to miss. Featuring only the best of Russian cinema, this groovy event includes yummy nibbles, a glass of sav and a shot of vodka. Score. Be sure to check it out!
