April is here which is a tad bit scary, surely we have only just got over New Years Eve? (ok so it’s been here for 6 days already but I’m a tad slow right now, we’re totally blaming daylight savings for this) There are heap of things on this month but before I get into that, I’m just going to remind you to get yourselves over to the Good Beer Week site and get your events sorted out for May as events are starting to sell out. Speak of May, I published the Where to go for Mothers Day page today (it’s really not that far away). As always, this will grow and prosper as the weeks go on so if you don;t fancy whats there now, check back again soon.
Whats on in April.
The 17th of April is World Malbec day (yep, it’s a thing) a great day to explore a variety that you perhaps are not as familiar with. To celebrate, Melbourne are putting on some amazing events for you to get your Malbec on. Bohemian Restaurant on South Wharf are hosting a dinner on the 16th April with 5 course with matched wines. Papa Goose are also getting into the spirit by hosting a dinner with 6 courses and matched wines. If a tasting is more your thing, the Annual World Malbec Day tasting is once again being presented to you at Ormond Hall. I went to this tasting last year and it was a blast plus I made it all the way home without breaking my free glass which in my case is a massive win.
If after all the Malbec, you feel the need for a bit of Street Food, Circa have your back. As one of the amazing events they are putting on for The Month of Circa, they are presenting you with a Street Feud Battle. For just $49 a head you’ll find yourself eating food from 6 different vendors all battling it out for your vote to become Street Food Champs.
Another fantastic event on at Circa this month is their Remix Wine Dinner 4 fabulous courses matched with 4 flights of wine showing old style grapes made into initiative new styles. It is going to be an absolute blast.
More great news for this month is that the fabulous people from Noisy Rituals that I told you about a couple of weeks ago have extended their pop up bar till the end of April. On the 11th, 18th and the 25th April from 7pm-11pm. Have a wee look at their Facebook page here.
