Melbourne might be locked down (again), but at least this weekend's weather forecast promises a strong chance of Vitamin D. And, things are looking even sunnier for folks who live within five kilometres of Gertrude Street, thanks to a fancy little sausage sizzle that's popping up this Saturday, August 14.

Inner-north favourites The Everleigh and Congress Wine are joining forces to deliver locals a special, one-off lockdown treat, descending on the Everleigh's Fitzroy takeaway window from 3pm. The crew from Collingwood wine bar Congress will be firing up the barbecue and dishing up a couple of tasty things in bread, to-go — namely, a mushroom snag with brussels sprout kraut and curry ketchup ($12), and a venison snag piled high with onion, artichoke jus and black garlic ketchup ($13). They're also whipping up an unmissable dessert special, in the form of a negroni doughnut.

Meanwhile, the drinks wizards at award-winning cocktail bar The Everleigh will be doing what they do best and slinging some fine boozy concoctions to match. You'll be able to take away batched sips from Everleigh Bottling Co.'s full Classic Cocktail range, including the negroni (a fitting pairing for that doughnut), the martini, a manhattan, an old fashioned and the caffeine-spiked blend known as Coffee House. Alternatively, if you're after a little fizz in your life, the bar will also be stocked with the brand's bottled spritzed cocktails — the Americano, French 75, Palomita and Fruit Cup.

Of course, the pop-up will be a COVID-Safe affair, so you'll need to practice social distancing and wear a mask while you're visiting.

Find the Congress Wine x The Everleigh pop-up sausage sizzle at The Everleigh, 150 Gertrude St, Fitzroy. It all kicks off at 3pm this Saturday, August 14.
