We know you’re undergoing intensive mental and physical prep for this weekend's Easter Egg Binge. The fridge is stocked with milk. Hot cross bun consumption is slowing at the end of the month-long starter phase. For some, vom bags are even at the ready.

But before hopping on into this egg-cellent (not even sorry) weekend, let’s take a trip down memory lane of the week that was in Melbourne town...

  • If you’re into the gloriously-golden, crispy frisbees that we know as potato cakes, here's our definitive guide to the best ones in Melbs.

  • There’s a new greyhound rescue cafe in the CBD from the crew at GAP. Consider it your new CBD puppy pit-stop. 

  • Arizona Living is a nursery hot enough to get in our plants. It’s where you’re going to drop serious $$$ on your next Jan Juc stint.

  • ‘Queer Eye’ season two is about to land on Netflix, so if you had any plans made for the foreseeable future, cancel them all. PS. You will weep. Prepare for weeping. 

  • Ricotta hotcakes and many of the other fine things in life (avo, lattes, outdoor seating) are coming your way at AM PM. In fact, they just launched a fab new menu. 

  • In case you weren’t in on the secret, Ziggy’s Burgers had another bun in the oven. Yup, they've popped up at a new spot on Coventry St in South Melbourne. *Gets in car*

  • Are redheads genetically blessed or cursed creatures? If you’ve got fiery locks and wholeheartedly agree with the latter, you’ll know these are 30 things only people with red hair will understand.

  • Hattie Molloy now has a concept store/flower utopia in Collingwood, and it’s blooming beautiful. We can certify there are no garden-variety bunches hurr.

  • If you’re in the mood for a bout of ROFL, LMFAO or el oh el, then let us walk you through 17 Shows To See At This Year’s Melbourne Comedy Festival. You’re going to Kim-K-crying-face-level sob with laughter.

  • Calling all lovas of fancy cocktails and Insta-worthy Windsor hangs: Lover is here with share plates and sips to send the aesthetic meter into overdrive. 

  • Melbourne just scored a new rooftop beer garden at The Cornish Arms. ANOTHA ONE. They’re still serving up all of that vegan goodness, but now with viewz and booze.

  • Unsure if they had high tea at the legitimate Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, but all that matters is that it’s coming to our city. Yep, a Mickey Mouse High Tea is hitting us with all of the scones and mems.

  • Nosh has landed at Melb Central with poke bowls aplenty, and their nori tacos have officially stolen our hearts (as well as prospective home owning abilities).

  • Hey coffee mavens, you need to read this. Recycling your coffee cups at 7-Eleven is now a thing. Get that $1 caffeinated gold without fuelling the landfill crisis.
