How’s that January clean eating cleanse going? Slipped up, did ya? Ah, that’s okay. We did too (obviously).

We hope you slid back into your weekly routine with ease after the holidays. We know you were nose deep with work all week, so take a breather and get updated on all the foodie news you missed.

  • Heading to the Australian Open? Roll up in style via water taxi down the Yara. Head to BearBrass to grab a breakfast package ($35) or lunch/dinner packages ($55), which includes a set menu, beer, wine or Aperol Spritz & return WaterTaxi Tickets. Sweet. 

  • On that note, if you haven’t got tickets to the Aus Open, head to Arbory Afloat and watch it in style. They somehow put a big screen on this 50-metre barge and will be screening events from 11am to 1am daily. Don’t you worry, the beer will be flowing.  

  • Tutto Bene is back at it again with limited edition gelato flavours. This time it’s for Australia Day weekend. Head there on 26 January to cool off and celebrate our glorious nation.

  • After you inhale a scoop of patriotic gelato, make your way to Caulfield Racecourse to continue Australia Day celebrations at a pop-up pool party. But you may want to leave your bathers at home…

  • ICYMI: The Chicken Big Mac is back at Maccas for a limited time only. We give you permission to cheat on your clean eating goals for this fast food masterpiece.

  • There’s a new Korean BBQ spot in town and you can’t miss it. Literally. Its suave architecture sticks out on a street lined with brick buildings. Yes, we said suave. 

  • FYI: There are a few awesome wine events happening in Melbourne right now, and we think you should hit them up before summer ends (let’s not talk about summer ending).

  • We checked out the brand new Hellenic Republic in Brighton, and it'll definitely help you stay on track with your #cleaneating goals.

  • You know when you go to a whiskey bar and make a mental note to buy a bottle of whatever you’re sipping on? Well, we found a whiskey bar that allows you to buy a bottle right off the shelves. 

  • Whip out the trendy flamingo tube and slather on the sunscreen because Section 8 is launching a beach party in CBD. It's free too, so obvs we'll see you there. 

  • Hold the phone! St Kilda Fest dropped their 2018 line-up, and we have cleared Sunday 11 February in our diaries. You can bloody well bet we’ll be at this epic FREE event.

  • Keep that diary out. We spoke to the stars about where you should travel in 2018 according to your zodiac. Kinda jealous of Aries...

  • Feeling a little lost? It’s probably because you just walk through a giant inflatable labyrinth in Fed Square. On until the end of the month.

  • Are you seriously telling us that you haven’t been to Uluru yet?! What are you waiting for? Its breathtaking field of light installation has just been extended, so you have time to check it out #fortheInsta.

  • In case you’ve been living under a rock this week, The Golden Globes were on and everyone wore black.

Alright so now that you’re up to speed, here are 17 FREE things to do this month.
