By Tayla Rabie - 16 Apr 2018


Wasn’t last week just the absolute sh*t? In a good way. It brought us gorgeous warm weather, awesome events and tonnes of restaurant openings. Although the weather may not be as bangin’ this week, Melbourne is still slinging along some crazy good events to keep you occupied. Prep your body, mind and spirit for an onslaught of great feeds. 

Here are 5 awesome things to do in Melbourne this week.

All Week

$5 Pork Belly Frenzy

Please bow your heads in the direction of the CBD, because Red Spice QV are providing us with a four-day pork belly frenzy. For a measly 5 buckaroos, you can get three crispy and tender pieces of pork belly topped with a chilli caramel and black vinegar sauce. They sell over 40 TONNES of pork belly a year, so there’s no doubt these bellies are darn good.  

Where: Red Spice QV
When: Monday 16 April- Thursday 19 April, 12pm-2pm & 5pm-6:30pm

One Day Only Cheap AF Dumplings

In celebration of the final day of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Annam is offering their mouth-watering Sarsaparilla Braised Oxtail Dumplings for only $2 a pop. Talk about a bargain. Follow them down with a chaser of Jerry Mai's famous deep-fried ice-cream.

Beer Yoga (Broga)

The guys over at The Hack bar are challenging traditional conceptions of what a pub is all about with their new Broga event. They’re tackling male suicide with the assistance of a couple of free bevvies and some good old fashioned yoga.  Creating a space where everyone can feel comfortable to talk and share with each other...while bent over in very unflattering positions. Nice one.

Music Cities Convention At Melbourne Museum 

Melbourne Museum's Nocturnal event this week is extra special, because Melbourne was just named the live music capital of the world.

The usual Nocturnal treats are also in store—good food, good booze, good company. Get around it on Thursday & Friday nights.
