Australia may very well be the only country that takes a public holiday for a horse race but who’s complaining. For those of you ready to properly celebrate the Cup weekend, there are a ton of good times coming your way. On Friday, Halloween events for a ghoulish good night include CLOSET’s Homo Halloween at First Floor and Halloqween at the Greyhound Hotel.
On Saturday, Bounce RnB will be pumping as usual at DnM Bar. For something a little extra special, the Laird Hotel will be celebrating its 33rd birthday with HARDWEAR. Hardwear is your chance to gear up be it in work wear, sportswear or any leather concoction of your choosing. American playwright Neil LaBute’s controversial play ‘In a Forest, Dark and Deep‘ is on at the Theatre Husk in Northcote at 4pm and 8pm.
If you’re in the mood for some soft Sunday tunes, check out award-winning jazz vocalist Fem Belling who’s in Melbourne for the Melbourne Cabaret Festival. Belling and her band will be playing from 7pm at the Village Melbourne in St. Kilda.
Two big parties are on-deck for Monday’s Cup eve. First, the Hype launch party is on at the GH. According to their website it’s going to be massive. They say that “it’s big, it’s gay, and it’s got a hell of a lot going on.” Alternatively, the John Homosocial Cup Day Eve is on at Liberty Social.
Whatever combination you choose, don’t gamble away your cash because it’s going to be a long weekend in Melbourne.
