Monday 16th – Friday 20th
Melbourne Music Week
If you haven’t already, it’s time to get amongst Melbourne Music Week - the festival wraps up this Friday! A celebration of Melbourne’s music scene, the festival takes in a collection of much-loved live music venues, city streets and laneways, and of course Melbourne’s unique creative spaces. From live gigs and dancing, to sessions, tours, and documentary screenings, there’s plenty to get involved in, all in the name of our city’s love for music. For a full run down of the program visit MMW.
Final Bike Buller Pump Track Sessions
Onya bikes, people! The final installment of Bike Buller’s Pump Track sessions kicks off this Wednesday at 5pm. The night will include a Store Wars competition that will see Melbourne’s favourite bike retailers go head-to-head on the pump track, as well as an open comp, Subaru free-ride jump and (of course) room to take your wheels for a casual spin. The event is free, but you’ll have to bring some cheeky cash to indulge in the Beatbox Kitchen offerings, and Bridge Road Brewers beers. For further info on the night head to the Bike Buller website.

Bang Bang BBQ Sundays at the St Hotel
Sorry, mum. We’re skipping the Sunday roast this week so that we can tuck in to an epic Thai style BBQ at the St Hotel! Running from 12-4pm every Sunday throughout November, the Bang Bang Feast will include tasty grilled chicken, marinated pork skewers, northern Thai style spicy sausage, mushroom, tofu and baby corn skewers, and green papaya slaw.
