By the light of the silvery moon

I'm not sure if you managed to see the full moon and 'supermoon' this week but it sure was spectacular.  It's the last time the moon will appear this close to Earth until 2034!  There is a magic to the moon light and night time has always had its own special appeal for the night owl in me.

Speaking of which, the Night Noodle Markets at Birrarung Marr opened last week and have been very popular with many of my work friends, who've visited not just once but a number of times to the Asian hawker-style markets.  It's a great idea for balmy Spring nights leading up to Summer finally starting next month here in Melbourne.  Also on this weekend is Broadsheet's Food and Design Weekend market behind the Spiegeltent in Collingwood.

The 19th Australian Annual Northern Soul Weekender is being held from tonight at Thornbury Theatre and if I didn't have kids, this would be a fun one to go to.  Mr Rosanna and I have just finished bingeing on Netflix's Marvel Comic hero Luke Cage and loved seeing some of our favourite soul artists performing in the nightclub owned by the baddies.

If you're interested in getting out and about the Nillumbik Artists Open Studios is on this weekend and next featuring the work of some of my favourite local artists and more.  The Annual Love Heide Dinner is also being held tomorrow night at the Sofitel to raise funds for Heide - I was lucky enough to go as a guest last year to this event where participating artists donate limited edition artwork for those who want to bid.  This year's work is by Melinda Harper.

If you have children, you may be more interested in the Clifton Hill Primary School Fair being held tomorrow or the Malahang Community Festival being held this Sunday in West Heidelberg.  Sunday looks like being a cracker of a day so enjoy the weekend!
