Still feeling all lurved up after your V-Day escapades? Excellent. We’ve got a crop of killer events to channel those good vibes. There’s grape-picking for a stellar cause and a Vietnamese feast for starters. A classy pub crawl is even kicking off in all its sophisticated, boozy glory. That sounds like a fat oxymoron, but we promise it’s actually happening.
Your calendar is about to get real busy. Here’s what’s on this week in Melbs...
Free Cocktails At QV Outdoor Cinema
Here’s some alliteration to swoon over: complimentary cocktails. They’re in full force under the stars at every upcoming QV screening (and go swimmingly with a bucket of popcorn). In case you weren’t already pencilling that in, you can now bring your pooch along too. Get in the deckchair already.
Drinking History Tours
Mashing Melbourne’s history with the universal bar hopping ritual, this new twist on the guided city tour may have just fused two of our all-time favourite things. Shots shots shots!!! (And kolcha, of course). Good luck with the walking part. Bonus points for a linear strut by the end of the night.
Monday 19 February
Vietnamese New Year at Annam
Lion dancers and a mean serving of all-star Vietnamese dishes? Bring it on. Annam is throwing the ultimate ‘Tet’ (Vietnamese NY) bash tonight, and you’d be crazy not to indulge in the festivities. The menu sees crispy fried bahn tet and a solid side of prosperity for the year ahead.
Wednesday 21 February
Caravan & Camping Show
Maybe you’ve unsuccessfully assembled more tents than you can count. Or perhaps your camping prowess is Bear Grylls level. Either way, this is where your next exploration crew should congregate. Get the lowdown on all things Great Outdoors before the next sojourn. It’s gonna be in-tents.

Vinomofo’s Homeless Grapes Project
All pinot fiends, this is your time to shine...and naturally, wine. The legends at Vinomofo are herding up Victorians for a grape-picking extravaganza. The industry pros will oversee your vineyard frolicking, and one hundy % of the proceeds are going to support thousands of Aussies doing it tough on our streets. Get stomping.
Get excited guys, The B.East's annual Chilli Eating Championships is back.
