I haven’t been this excited about Friday since last Friday.
Welcome to the weekend everyone. This is not any ordinary weekend though is it? No it is The Melbourne Cup Weekend! Party on Wayne etc. I for one am very excited (mainly about the Public Holiday though sorry racing people.)
Here are my top picks.
I also wrote about the Yarra Valley Balloon Festival. I had such a great night. See more beautiful pics here.
This weekend Berwick has gone all Music Festival on us with Live @ The Park being held. Saturday from 12pm at Akoonah Park. Featuring Daryl Braithwaite, Russell Morris, Chocolate Starfish and Emma Donovan and The Putbacks. Sound fun? Then look here for more information.
Take in some sweet views (and Pizza) at Forrest Edge Restaurant. On Sunday there will be wood fired pizzas all day and live music from 1pm. Plus they are throwing a ripper Melbourne Cup party, but unfortunately bookings have closed on that one. 2905 Gembrook-Launching Place Road, Gembrook.

Paperworks Gallery also has a delightful gift shop where I did a lot of my Christmas shopping last year. 26 Inglis R, Berwick.
Four Pillars Gin Distillery is having a party this weekend to celebrate its opening. Events include Masterclasses, gin tastings, mini G&T fights, choose-your-own-adventure negroni and some fabulous food trucks. October 31 and November 1 at 2a Lilydale Rd, Healesville. Look here for tickets. I have already had a little visit and it is looking very good.

Me, I’m really looking forward to a book and a Nanna nap. I hope you get one too.
