When the working week is done, folks just wanna have fun. We're paraphrasing Cyndi Lauper because she knows what she's singing about. If your idea of taking her advice involves listening to ace musos belt out a few tunes, then QPAC's Green Jam is the Friday afternoon session you're looking for. Held on the last Friday of every month between 5.30pm and 7.30pm, the outdoor songfest takes over the Melbourne Street Green (aka that vibrant patch of turf just past the Cultural Centre walkway) for free live music fun. Then, hop over to Gauge on Grey Street for dinner. Just remember to book — they're always busy. A six-course set menu, small plates and regular ol' dinner are available. Go on, try their signature blood taco with bone marrow, mushrooms and native thyme.
