Can the countdown to Christmas just slow down a bit?! We have 17 days, people. SEVENTEEN DAYS till jolly old St Nick slides down the chimney and leaves us with our well-deserved presents (because, obviously, everyone is on the nice list). Except, maybe, your boss. But that’s a given.

You’re probably in the midst of Christmas shopping, but take a breather! Get up to date on all the news you missed this week. There could be a valuable deal in here for you!

  • Looking for a snack to get you through that grueling Christmas shopping? Stop by Billy’s Central and grab something from its on-the-go menu. It’s the perfect pick-me-up so that you can continue shopping for that nephew you barely know.

  • Sip on something tropical at Wilson & Market. They have a new pineapple flavour beer on tap and it tastes ohhhh so fresh.

  • The first Dry & Tea salon in Myer, Highpoint has opened and we’re making a booking ASAP for all our upcoming holiday festivities. Can't wait to look fabbbulous. 

  • Take a drive down Bellarine Peninsula and dine at Terindah Estate. The swanky restaurant just got an upgrade by adding a new, world-renowned Executive Chef to its kitchen. We're willing to splurge.  

  • Our friends at Supernormal, Flinders Lane are introducing some awesome new menus for Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. Think suckling pig with ssamjang and bao, New England lobster roll and a selection of fish and crustacea on ice #drooling.

  • Better yet, its sister restaurant Supernormal Canteen is launching festive menus throughout the Christmas period! You’ll find smoked duck breast with shiso and roast suckling pig with pickles on this menu #wearenotworthy

  • Mirror, Mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest city guide of them all? Us!? Daawww. In celebration of Snow White’s 80th anniversary, check out Emporium Melbourne and Disney’s immersive Snow White Mirror, Mirror Experience. It'll be taking over the Ground Floor. 

  • Beer? Trivia? Star Wars? Grab your mates and head to The Windsor Alehouse for the ultimate Star Wars themed Sunday Sesh on 10 December! The Force is strong with this one.   

  • The trendy Spanish/South American restaurant Lona Pinxtos Bar is introducing new vegan eats to its menu. Try the slow braised, BBQ’d jackfruit vegan slider. Apparently, jackfruit tastes exactly like pulled pork...but you tell us!

  • ICYMI: Devour a Golden Gaytime cheesecake on a stick at pop-up dessert bar, Stix. It’s the perfect after-work treat. You deserve it!   

  • Walk on over to The Pie Shop because it’s offering a festive, new pie this month and her name is Nellie. She’s filled with peach, lemon verbena and raspberry. YUM.

  • You! Yeah, you! Download the Eat Club app right now. We know you like eating out, especially if it’s cheap, and this app will find a deal for you!

  • Go balls to the walls at a glow-in-the-dark ball pit coming to Melbourne. Oh, and leave the kids at home. Adults only.

  • Armed with a glass of wine in one hand and a paintbrush in the other, march on over to Cork & Chroma paint and sip studio. It just opened its Melbourne location and we’re ready to drunkenly paint the next Da Vinci.  

  • It’s not even 2018 yet, but we already found next year’s hottest new restaurant. It's got private karaoke rooms, food cooked over an open flame, an underground function space and a rooftop bar. Not all Heroes wear capes.
