Let’s face it, a 4-day working week is already pretty damn good as it is. We are keen to make it that that little bit sweeter for you by offering 5 killer suggestions of activities: we’re talking escape rooms, a pork-based dinner and a fashion photography exhibition—just to give you some ideas.
Check out our list of the 5 awesome things to do in Melbourne this week.
Trapt Together at the TRAPT Bar & Escape Rooms | Melbourne CBD
It’s challenging enough to solve the puzzles in teams with your families and friends, but what about with complete strangers? This one is for all you confident thrill-seekers out there. Step 1: send an email to Trapt with the subject: *I WANT TO BE TRAPT TOO*. Step 2: make it to TRAPT without a complete panic. Step 3: meet your new comrades and smash the challenge. Follow these steps and we promise you’ll be in for a night to remember.
Scarf’s Seasonal Autumn Dinner At Rupert and Rupert | Collingwood
Do more than just dine this Tuesday night at an Autumn Scarf Dinner. Yes, there will be a delicious 2-course menu and a fabulous drinks list—but more importantly, your presence will support an incredible Melbourne-based initiative. Scarf affords young people struggling to find work the opportunity to learn and grow within their hospitality environment, which diners are able to see first-hand. Both your tummy and heart will be satisfied. Book your tickets here!
Yardmill and Happy Melon Urban Wellness Retreat
Want to head to a wellness retreat without ever leaving home? We have the perfect event for you! Yardmill and Happy Melon have paired up for a five day program which sees participants sleep in their own bed each night—with all meals and healthy snacks prepared for you by the team of chefs at Yardmill (known for their gluten/dairy/fructose/refined sugar free and wellness options), followed by two guided meditation and movement classes each day at Happy Melon. Sounds pretty perfect to us! Check out more info here.
Work Rihanna Dance Class
Want to whip it like Rhi-Rhi? Of course you do. Our fave dance instructor extraordinaire, Amrita Hepi, is delivering 'Work' themed Rihanna dance classes this week—but you'd better get in quick, because they're all sold out except for tonight's class. Head to the Facebook page for more details, and get ready to #werk.
Pork, Flame & Pinot at Circa, The Prince | St Kilda
The Prince's Circa is summoning all pork lovers for a smoky soiree on their reowned rooftop terrace to celebrate the #monthofprince. A 4-course menu featuring the finest free-range pork all the ways you like it—roasted, pulled, ribbed, crackled and belly up—has been created by Melbourne Pub Group kitchens. Think pork belly tacos and sticky + sweet pork hock with perfectly paired pinots… we’re drooling already. Be a happy porker and grab your tickets here.
