Lunch at The Press Club

Chef, restaurateur and Masterchef judge George Calombaris’ restaurant The Press Club is the pinnacle of class – an intimate, 32-seater restaurant serving modern Greek at a devilishly affordable price. And if you’re deliberating when the perfect moment to enjoy the deliciousness of this five star restaurant would be, we’re recommending give lunch a try. Open Monday through to Saturday from midday to 3pm, lunch time at The Press Club should be on every Melbournian foodie’s bucket list. Grab a quick lunch from the $40 express set menu which includes two courses and a glass of Hellenic wine, or select from tasting menus which start from two courses at $35pp, three courses at $45pp or four courses at $60pp. Better yet, visit on a Saturday and opt for the Saturday lunch tasting menu which treats you to six courses for just $90pp. Minimalist in size but enormous in flavour, The Press Club high end Greek food at it’s very best.

Bev Killick: Killick Bev

Seeing Bev Killick perform her stand-up is an experience. As she recounts stories of her past (anything from stories of life as the opening act of Puppetry of the Penis to being a 'crummy mummy') in her no-holds-barred style, you realise that there's no limit to how far she'll go to deliver increasingly outrageous, side-splittingly hilarious comedy. In her 15-year career, Killick has developed a formidable reputation as an incredibly relatable, self-effacing and bold comic. In addition to her on-stage antics, Killick has also featured on Kath and Kim as well as numerous comedy and panel shows. She'll be performing her new show, Killick Bev for just two nights at Melbourne Fringe, so book now.

Jurassic World: The Exhibition

Jurassic World: The Exhibition

UPDATE: It's your last chance to book tickets to the Melbourne Museum's incredible Jurassic World: The Exhibition. Whether you're a grown-up dino fan (who isn't?) or you're looking for a September school holiday highlight, make sure you visit the website and grab your passport to Isla Nublar now. There is a moment as you’re walking through the lush prehistoric forests of Jurassic World where you come across a huge, hollowed-out log. You step inside, and suddenly you hear a strange rumbling noise. Light filters through cracks in the log and, just for a moment, you see something moving. Was that scaly reptilian skin? A claw? An eye? Then, it dawns on you: the fences have been breached, and something big is out there. “It should feel like it would be able to eat you, or nuzzle up to you if it’s a friendlier dinosaur!” says Philip Millar, laughing. Millar is the associate creative director of Creature Technology, the Melbourne-based company behind the animatronic dinosaurs that will star in the Melbourne Museum’s blockbuster exhibition. His puppeteering expertise makes him a core member of the Creature Technology crew, who are widely considered to be at the forefront of naturalistic animatronics. Their credits include the Walking with Dinosaurs and How to Train Your Dragon arena spectaculars and the titular role in 2013’s musical version of King Kong. They have teamed up with Universal Pictures, Museum Victoria and US design group Imagine Exhibitions Inc to place highly realist

Sunday Shake

There’s no better way to farewell the weekend than parting with a Sunday sesh. And if there’s one place to kick on for Sunday Funday, especially when springtime hits, it’s at Bimbo’s Sunday Shake. Starting in September, every Sunday from 10am, Bimbo’s opens its doors for Fitzroy’s ultimate daytime party. With DJs playing on the rooftop courtyard as well as downstairs below the aeroplane, there’s sure to be a tune that you can boogy down to. DJs will be rotating monthly and this September will welcome Cee Cee Babcock, Natalie Turner, Hoops, J Schollo, Jamie Vale, Luke Vecchio, Morning Maxwell, Mose, Ezra Harvey, Cassettes for Kids, Awesome Wales, Jack Love and Matt Radovich. As per usual $4 gourmet pizzas will be on offer as well as drinks galore – we’re talking beer, wine and of course, Bimbo’s special flavour-infused vodkas. Oh, and come hungry because a new breakfast menu will also be on offer, starting September 4. So whether you’re looking for a morning party to continue the antics from Saturday night or you’re looking for a place to relax and catch up with friends, Bimbo’s has got your Sunday sorted.
