You heard us right. On the weekend of December 8–9, Melbourne's mew CBD venue Red Piggy is paying homage to the lychee with a lychee 'festival' flaunting the small tropical fruit in its own dedicated martini.
For two hours, you can knock back as many lychee martinis as you want – and so you don't get too trolleyed, the $60 deal includes a five-course feast showcasing Red Piggy's pan-Asian menu. With 20 years of experience in the kitchen, head chef Kim-Maree Moore knows a thing or two about cooking, so get your bibs ready for some slow-cooked lamb in red Thai curry, five-spiced tofu, crispy chicken covered in a garlic and lime sauce.
Those keen to kickstart their summer with this lychee party should email email@example.com with your name, number of attendees, festival day and any dietary requirements.
