You’d have to be some kind of social ninja to keep track of everything going on in Melbourne. It’d be like that scene from A Beautiful Mind with the string over all the walls, and you, hunched in the centre of the room, rocking back and forth and wondering if an artisanal cheese tasting or laser tag is the best way to spend a Thursday night.
Well don’t worry, because we’re here with The Feed; our carefully curated pick of everything good and pure that happened this week in Melbourne.
- Collingwood’s Gontran Cherrier teamed up with the BBQ legends at Fancy Hanks to create a new limited-edition sandwich. Miso Rye with house-cured pastrami, smoked cheddar cream cheese and pickled onions. It’s available at either venue until Monday. Get excited.
- It finally happened. Holey Moley mini-golf bar landed in Melbourne. We snuck in to check out the launch night on Wednesday, and we can tell you this ain’t your typical putt-through-the-windmill kind of course. This place is bonkers. Check out all the details here.
- Diesel unveiled its Make Love Not Walls artwork in Emporium, where it’ll be this weekend before moving on to New York, Berlin and Tokyo. It’s basically a giant inflatable rainbow tank that symbolises love triumphing over hate. We think.
- Want to know how to make a halal snack pack at home? Turns out they taste pretty good any time, not just at 3am while you’re drunk-texting your ex. We dropped the ultimate recipe here.
- Everyone’s favourite Greek donut food truck has opened its own bricks and mortar store. Lukamades has set up shop next to the Queen Vic Market (just follow the smell of fried dough and Oreos).
- Melbourne welcomed a few new bars into the fold (because there’s always room for more). We rounded up the best ones over here.
- The weekend’s festival line-up is getting crowded. Might be time to bust out the old diary and pencil in North Melbourne’s epic Malbec and tango festival, Electronic Jazz and spooky soundscapes at Fort Nepean or the mighty Meatstock at the Showgrounds. Decisions, decisions…
- Our favourite up-market boutique, Harrold’s, has a new three-level boutique on Collins St in the CBD, complete with exclusive collections from Stella McCartney and Manolo Blahnik. Hide your credit card.
- While you were sleeping on Tuesday night, All Day Dining became Melbourne’s hottest foodie trend (this town moves pretty fast). We rounded up three of our favs, open from dawn 'til dusk.
- We hit up the launch party for the Spanish Paella Festival (on this weekend at the Queen Vic Market), and can definitely recommend the rabbit and snail paella. Sounds weird, we know, but trust us on this one.
