5 Awesome Things To Do This Week In Melbourne

By James Shackell - 11 Dec 2017


Let’s bring this home, Melbourne. December is galloping faster than Winx with a deadline, Christmas is almost here and we’ve survived another year (sort of). But there are still a bunch of cool things to do this week. You just to know the right people. That would be us.

Here we go—five awesome things to do this week in Melbourne.

All Week

Festivus At Melbourne Central

Melbourne Central, you do all right. This week they’re launching a legit 14-day Seinfeld-style Festivus, complete with airing of the grievances and an actual pole. George’s Bar is popping up inside the centre, and they’ll be slinging custom-made Marissa Tomei cocktails. No feats of strength (OH&S issues), but hey, you can’t have everything.

Where: Melbourne Central
When: 11 December – 24 December

Mindful Mornings | Christmas Edition

Mindful Morning is throwing its last big do of the year. If you haven’t heard of these, they’re basically huge community yoga and meditation sessions. Entry gets you a nourishing breakfast (no bacon and egg sangas here, sorry), plus a guided meditation class with some of the best yoga teachers in Melbourne. Time to limber up.

Where: Greenfield Albert Park, 35-37 Lakeside Drive
When: 6:30am – 8:30am, 13 December 10, 2017

You’ll also get Carolina pulled pork with apple and absinthe slaw, plus a wicked hickory-smoked brisket. Craft beers and cocktails included.

Christmas Dinner...Down The Rabbit Hole

Christmas is starting early at White Rabbit Brewery this year. They’re decking out Geelong's Barrel Hall for a festive four-course evening. You’ll get a sit-down dinner, paired with a selection of White Rabbit beers, plus Christmas tunes and a possible appearance from St Nick himself (he’s partial to the occasional froth). Tickets are $85 a pop.

When: 6:30pm – 10pm, 14 December

Soul With Thando

Up for a little late night jam session this Thursday? As part of the Amy Winehouse exhibition, the Jewish Museum of Australia is hosting Soul With Thando. It’s an improvised soul session, with guest vocalists like the legendary Rita Satch. Guests are invited to get up and try their hand on the mic. Let’s hope there’s wine...

Heads up: we found an organisation that's looking for 'kitten carers' over Christmas.
