Put that way, surely there are heaps of ways to incorporate it into your everyday routine?

Arriving at the Roman Tannery in Laverton was like stepping from a dilapidated urban street of Melbourne straight into a cloud – a soft, fluffy cloud that you never want to leave. Instead of refusing to leave (which was likely to initiate a few issues) we simply took half of its contents, and moved it all to our terrace at Melbourne Public to create Mont Plonk.
Here at Melbourne Public we are constantly surrounded by food. Whether we are thinking about it, looking at it, or writing about it (and sometimes even eating it…) – it’s never far from our thoughts. So when we came across the Feed Melbourne Appeal, which raises funds to help individuals and families in Melbourne who are struggling to afford to put a meal on their table, it really struck a chord with us.
Fridays are usually a pretty good day in the MP office. We celebrate the start of the weekend guzzling coffees & cake in Citizen in the morning, and spend the afternoon knocking back espresso martinis & oysters in Melbourne Public.

But last Friday exceeded all of our usual Friday expectations, with a helicopter ride to the Mount Zero Olive Grove in the Grampians for the Regional World’s Longest Lunch.
