Well it’s happened, we’ve reached the New Year and you’re probably heading back to work. If you need a first-week-back ‘break’ already, then we have some fantastic ideas for your to-do list. Check out Clueless at the Rooftop Cinema, laugh along with Nath Valvo at Howler, praise #garlicbread at the MCG, eat street food at Fed Square, or even enjoy a one-day cricket match between India and Australia.

Here are our top 5 picks of things to do in Melbourne this week.

Tuesday 12th

Rollin’ with your homies to the Rooftop Cinema this Tuesday is the most important thing you’ll ever do - because they’re screening the ultimate teen comedy, Clueless. A 90s take on Jane Austen’s Emma, Clueless combines stylish teen fashion and upper class antics with super cute scenes of Paul Rudd in his youth. What a dreamboat! Bookings are essential, so make sure to visit the Rooftop Cinema website.

Wednesday 13th

This Wednesday, Howler launches their Festival of Half Baked Ideas, which is basically a super-awesome comedy extravaganza. Hitting the Howler stage at 8:15pm, Nath Valvo is headlining the first night of the festival with a new hour of comedy, Tongue in Cheek. The Project and Nova FM regular will keep you laughing along with family anecdotes and physical comedy. There’s nothing like a laugh to get us through hump day! Tickets are a measly $13, click here to book now.

Friday 15th

Well, I’m so happy to announce that it’s officially arrived! This Friday at the MCG at exactly 3:07am the Garlic Bread Appreciation Conference is officially in session. So if you’re a fan of the buttery, garlic-y and bread-y deliciousness of our beloved garlic bread, then you should RSVP now on the Facebook event. Let us all just hope this isn’t some elaborate troll-based plan that will destroy our 2016 buzz, #prayforgarlicbread.

Saturday 16th

Welcome to the Instagram foodie utopia. Set against the B-E-A-UTIFUL Yarra River backdrop, there will be over 35 different world cuisines to sample at the International Street Food Festival at Federation Square. You can bop along to sweet tunes or treat your eyes to a spectacular fashion show. This is a FREE event that is located right in the heart of the CBD, so you really don’t have an excuse to miss this one. An added bonus is that part of the proceeds from the festival goes to Beyond Blue and the Cancer Council. For more information on musical acts and vendors click here. Go forth and eat my friends!

Sunday 17th

I think it’s pretty fair to say the Australia and India are fairly obsessed with the lil ol’ sport known as cricket. That’s why this Sunday these two nations are coming together to battle it out – cricket style - for one epic day in Melbourne. Grab the gang, the sunscreen, and get yourself to the Gabba for the Victoria Bitter One Day International Cricket Series at the MCG. The Aussies will need your support in what is guaranteed to be fast-paced duel to remember. Buy your tickets here!
