Break Room – Giveaway

Melbourne has a new way to destress and it involves smashing a lot of things. Dreamed up by entrepreneur Ed Hunter, The Break Room has just opened in Collingwood, after relocating from Brunswick and it’s already a hit (no pun intended) . The rules are simple. Enter the break room and smash everything into smithereens. You are given a baseball bat, 6 plates, 6 wine glasses, 6 cups and 1 carafe, so get creative. Smash them on the floor Greek wedding style, throw them at the wall or throw them in the air to wack them with the baseball bat. The choice is yours. Breakers must wear long pants and long sleeves, and you’re given protective gear before entering the room. Safety still does come first. You also have the choice of 10 minutes for $50 or 90 minutes for 30 minutes, but of course if you’re really needing to release you’ll be done smashing your goods in 5. As an exclusive for We Know Melbourne readers, we have one double pass to giveaway to the Break Room. …

Cibi – A breakfast with a difference

While the prospect of seeking a new café out can be fun and exciting, sometimes you just want to return to a good old favourite. For the We Know Melbourne, team, one of these long term favourites is Cibi. Located off the main strip of Smith Street, this café is easy to miss, but as soon as you enter you feel like you’re reaquantained with your long, lost , best friend. Cibi (Japanese for little one) is fitted out with modern interiors, plenty of design reading material and an ever so homely feeling. There’s even an gallery/shop where you can purchase Japanese ceramics, teatowels, and other homewares. The café caters for those looking for a breakfast with a difference. You won’t find your regular eggs and avocado on toast here. Instead the menu serves a traditional breakfast. We opted for the Ultimate Weekend Special: Grilled sliced salmon fillet, free range egg omlette Tamagoyaki, …
