5 Awesome Things To Do This Week In Melbourne

By Gracyn McEwan - 17 Sep 2018


There's no need to dread the start of another week. Melbourne's got your back. In fact, there's a tonne of distractions from the ol' 9—5 grind this week—we've got pork belly corn dogs, unlimited oyster slurping and an AFL trivia night to make the werk week go that little bit faster. 

Here are 5 awesome things happening this week in Melbourne. 

Monday 17 September

AFL TRIVIA NIGHT AT THE MILL HOUSE

Continue the heckling from last weekend's game with The Mill House’s AFL trivia night. Entry is free, Happy Hour goes from 4—7pm and bev specials are courtesy of Stomping Ground Brewery. Don’t forget to take a chomp out of the special Matthew LeuenBURGERS on offer too (wonder how long they spent on that one...)

Where: The Mill House, 277-279 Flinders Lane, Melbourne
When: Monday 17 September 5—9pm

Tuesday 18 September

RED SPICE QV’S PORK BELLY CORN DOGS

Yep, you read that correctly. The folks from Red Spice QV are re-inventing the battered retro classic. Think pork belly in sausage form, coated in cornbread batter, fried and served with spicy ssamjang mayo and apple kimchi (yes pls). Make sure you plot this one in the calendar, because it's only running for three days. Did we mention they were $5 a pop? Bargain. 

Where: Red Spice QV, 37 Artemis Lane, Melbourne
When: Tuesday 18 September—Thursday 20 September

BANG BANG’S BANGIN’ CURRY TUESDAYS

The guys at Bang Bang are helping to clear your sinuses each week at Bangin’ Curry Tuesdays, with curries going for $15 each. The menu changes regularly, but next week you have a choice from duck and lychee red curry, roasted pumpkin and corn green curry and sour orange curry with ocean trout. They’re also running $5 Colonial schooners all night.

Where: Bang Bang at The Rifle Club, 294 Glenhuntly Rd, Elsternwick
When: Tuesday 18 September 5—10pm

HAWKER 88 NIGHT MARKET OPENING

The Queen Vic Market’s newest night market kicks off this Wednesday with a Mooncake Festival (which involves a mooncake eating competition obviously).
