Pry yourself off the couch, away from Loser, Two and a Half Men or RSPCA Animal Rescue and spend the night at the Queen Vic Markets discovering minority cuisines prepared by real Aussies, arts, crafts and other stuff you don’t really need.
Every Wednesday evening during summer is your chance to spend some quality time out of the office and under the tin shed sauna surrounded by a carnival atmosphere and musical entertainment. Get in early for a plastic chair and avoid the crowds for a Nepalese or Caribbean grilled chicken, a paella or two, over priced gozleme, true Mex or outback tucker fresh off the coat of arms. Colours of the rainbow gelato and homemade lemonade slushees unsurprisingly popular on days over 25 degrees. So much to try, and if you manage to eat your way through everything you’d fit nicely on any one of those Wednesday night prime time telly programs.
