Is anyone else wondering how on earth it can possibly be May already? The good news is that with May's shorter days and cooler nights comes one of Melbourne's biggest and best foodie fundraisers at Sofitel Melbourne on Collins.
Yep, it's nearly time for the 2016 Eat Street, in what will be its 17th year of bringing together some of Melbourne's best chefs and restaurants all in the name of charity (and some darn tasty food).
If you like the idea of cocktail attire, a silent auction, signature dishes from our finest local talent, live entertainment from Ali McGregor, event styling that will have you in awe while you sip on Australia's top wine and beverages - for the all-inclusive price of $160 per person - then you should really get to Eat Street this year.
Besides completely and utterly enjoying yourself, you'll be helping raise money for kids in need through Variety Victoria (and we all know how much Variety loves a good party for a good cause).
Buy your tickets online, find something fabulous to wear (perhaps with an elasticated waist...) and join us on May 24th for the 2016 EAT ME DRINK ME themed Eat Street.
