2013 has been a pretty wicked year in Melbourne. We kicked off with our first ever White Night, the kept the ball rolling with a massive calendar of arts events and shows including a six metre gorilla.
On the food side we saw Messina open its doors, Calombaris opened a bunch of restaurants (and got into a Twitter fight with Miss Chu), we also got more food trucks and US-style BBQ seems to be overtaking Mexican as the buzz food of choice.
Sure it wasn’t a perfect year with Hawthorn winning the flag, but ended on a pretty good note with Melbourne Now, the biggest exhibition the NGV’s ever put on – and it’s all free. Go see it.
We’ve loved sharing these stories that make Melbourne such awesome city, and hope you’ll join us again for the adventure in 2014.
We’re taking a brief break from this week to re-stock the shelves and top up on our icy-poles, but look forward to hanging out with you again in January.
From everyone here at Milk Bar have a rad Christmas and New Year – and continue being excellent to each other.
Movenpick are giving away over 5,000 scoops of ice-cream across their 23 boutiques this Monday!
Singer, songwriter and comedic genius Jude Perl will launch her debut album Modern Times at The Toff in Town.
Milk Bar Mag got to speak with JackJackJack's singer Maggie Baines about their upcoming show at the St Kilda Festival.
