By Sami Jenkins - 22 Apr 2019


We definitely needed that long weekend break, and we’re sure you did, too. After recovering from Easter weekend feasting, family catch-ups and maybe even being delegated to run an Easter egg hunt or two, the festivities are far from over. We’ve got some stellar ideas for what you should be getting up to this week. Think pizza parties, friendship speed dating, Barbie doll high tea and more. 

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

Monday 22 April


Finish up your Easter long weekend with something other than chocolate: a pizza party. For $39, you'll get unlimited pizza and wine at this Pizza Feast-er. But make sure to make your reservation, as spots might be limited. Bookings require a minimum of two people, so grab your nearest eating buddy and head down to this fabulous pizza party tonight.

Our favourite Ladies of Leisure are back with another fabulous event that we’re sure you will not be able to resist. They’re encouraging us to step outside of our comfort zone, by helping us make new friends in a cosy, non-judgemental environment à la speed dating. Making friends can be a tough endeavour, especially as an adult; so chat with people, share a laugh or two, and maybe meet your future bestie.

The much-anticipated Avengers: Endgame will be officially hitting our Australian cinemas this Wednesday. Under all circumstances, you cannot miss this one.
