A BONNET-FUL OF BBQ  

Speaking of all you eat, how about Bluebonnet’s festive season Bottomless Barbecue. It’s running from 27th December to 10th January and gives you a free flowing supply of chef Chris Terlikar’s signature slow-cooked brisket, ribs, sausages, sides and more for $65pp (excl. drinks). You can fill yourself silly for two hours, plus there’ll be twice-nightly happy hours – 3pm till 6pm and 10pm till late. Bookings advised via www.bluebonnetbbq.com.au

SINGER’S SOIREE

One of the Yarra Valley’s best keep secrets, Coombe Yarra Valley is teaming up with online wine seller ‘Vinomofo’ for a stupendous sounding summer wine soiree at the former home of Dame Nellie Melba. Could be a last minute Chrissie gift, or a way to spoil yourself over summer. It’s all happening Sunday Jan 20, and the $130 ticket will get you free flowing Coombe wine for the afternoon, a selection of craft beers, the chance to be one of the first in the world to try Coombe’s new London Dry Gin, an Oyster/blanc de blanc bar, canapés and lunch-sized tasting boards, live entertainment and more. It’s worth it just for a look at this beautiful piece of Victoria’s history. Tix: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/coombe-yarra-valley-summer-garden-party-tickets-53718060164

GOING FOR GOLDIE

Keep an eye out for “Goldie Asian Canteen + Brews”, the CBD’s latest casual restaurant serving Asian flavours with a twist. Chef Michael Smith is in charge, formerly of Melbourne institutions Mamasita and Tonka, and he’s bringing us fun dishes like Peking Duck & Noodle Toasties, Brekkie Bao, and Togaroshi Mayo – an Asian twist on the chicken schnitzel roll. There’s the usual suspects on the drinks menu, or you can try their take on a boozy bubble tea, like the Coffee Cup – a blend of cold brew coffee, Kahlua vodka and tonic tapioca pearls. It’s at 399 Lt Lonsdale St in the city; GoldieCanteen.com.au
