Queen Vic Winter Night Market

It’s been running all winter, fam. And if you haven’t been down yet, we highly recommend checking out Queen Vic's Winter Night Market. It’s bigger and better than ever with 30+ food and drink stalls, 50 specialty artisan stores, a weekly programme of buzzing entertainers and some of Melbourne’s best live musos. Added bonus: this year, there’s a big old shipping container hosting a terrifying sensory experience. It’s called Séance. And it’s bloody scary.

When: Wednesdays, 5pm – 10pm
Where: Queen Vic Market

Little Odessa Georgian Feast

Fitzroy’s Eastern European wine bar, Little Odessa, is hosting a very special food and wine feast this week, all themed around Georgian wine. They’ll be opening up their restaurant and not letting anyone leave until they’re full as a boot (or a state any self-respecting Bebia would be happy with). It’s veggo too, guys. So you can get full with plenty minus the animal-friend guilt. We like it.

When: Wednesday July 18
Where: Little Odessa, 274 (Rear) Brunswick St, Fitzroy

Movies & Wine At Concrete Boots

Calling all sustainably-minded, fashionably-conscious pals. The ethical Queens from the Ahisma Collective are hosting a screening of Blue, The Film, a marine conservation film about the hidden crisis lapping on our shores. The film will be screening at Concrete Boots in Richmond, where you can enjoy a glass of wine whilst watching. Go on, guys. If you’re gonna do one thing this week, make this it. 

When: Wednesday 18 July, 6pm – 10pm
Where: Concrete Boots Bar, 381 Burnley St, Richmond

Truffle Dinner at Laura

Caught on that it’s truffle season yet? Because it is. And Pt. Leo Estate is ringing it in with a one-off truffle dinner at Laura. Culinary director Phil Wood is ready to treat you to a five-course menu designed to showcase the distinct characteristics of our good friend, the truffle. Each dish will be matched with a wine too. Woohoo! We just can’t say no to a good truffle (or a wine).
