29th Jun 2020


Your feed is probably full of people posting about the weather right this morning—2° degrees, pretty cold, bit nippy. Take a break from everyone’s acknowledgement of the expectedly low temperature in Melbourne and plan for the week ahead with one, two, three, four or five of the below activities. 

Old Melbourne Gaol | Cluedo Experience

Board games were fun for a while there, but the novelty of not passing go, and not collecting $200 wears off over time. Book yourself in for some much-needed social stimulation at The Old Melbourne Gaol this week for a round of real-life Cluedo; as with any escape room-esque experience, there are plenty of tangible ways to immerse yourself in the storyline with evidence planted throughout the venue, and even a DNA scanner—wild.

What: Old Melbourne Gaol | Cluedo Experience
Where: 377 Russell Street, Melbourne

Mr Brownie Opening

Chef, restaurateur and hospo don, Jessi Singh (Horn Please, Daughter in Law, Mrs Singh) is opening up the doors to his four-storey ‘curry pub’ in South Melbourne this week. Take a poke around and see if you can find the hidden doorway basement cocktail bar, and don’t forget to take a look at the 500 strong beer list while you’re there.
