Although I will be hopping in and out of Melbourne next month, I still like to feature the best Melbourne events in May. There are some pretty interesting things happening. See for yourself!
Hot Tub Cinema
Through to May 29 at The Common Man on Dukes Walk, South Wharf
Apparently, sitting in a pool and watching a movie has taken off overseas, so Tourism Fiji has brought the concept to Melbourne. From the comfort of a 40 degree hot tub, you can watch classics such as Labyrinth, Charlie’s Angels, and The Karate Kid.
Rock Your Body
Sunday 1st May at Luna Park
Rock Your Body is a disco yoga event to raise funds for The Butterfly Foundation. How many times in your life can you say you did disco yoga, with accompanying local DJs, outside at Luna Park?
Shop til you Drop
Friday 6th & Saturday 7th May at 142 Ashley Street, Braybrook
Described as “The Mother of all Warehouse Sales,” if you like to bargain shop then look nowhere else. The warehouse will be filled with clothes, footwear, toys, accessories, stationery, bedding and so much more. Some of the brands on sale will be Nike, Billabong, TOMS, Bonds, Paul Frank and Samsonite.
Have a Beer or Five
13th to 22nd May at various locations
Labelled as one of the best beer weeks in the world, craft beer lovers will definitely enjoy Good Beer Week. There is a lineup of nearly 300 events, and the program is divided into five categories: Foodie, Beer Lover, Beer 101, Beer Geek and Good Times. Check out the website for all the necessary information.
I have discovered three different food-centred events happening across Melbourne: Indonesian Satay Festival, Fiesta Malaysia and Eat Street Melbourne. Fiesta Malaysia will be happening at Federation Square, and apparently about 20000 people visited the festival last year. Eat Street is also an annual Variety fundraiser.
So two big shows are opening in Melbourne in May: Singin’ in the Rain and The Sound of Music. The big star of Singin’ in the Rain is Adam Garcia, who I haven’t heard about in awhile. I still love him from his Coyote Ugly days, so it would be awesome to see him on the stage.
As per usual, there is always something interesting happening in Melbourne every weekend.
See you in June,
