As much as my life might look like one long dinner party, the not-so-glam financial realities of being a "creative professional" mean that I've still got a stealthy, student-like eye for a bargain - whether it's for a cheap root-job or a cut-price glass of bubbles.
If you're looking for a deal on the latter then read on. I recently did a round up of a handful of fine Melbourne establishments who offer a deal at certain times throughout the week, and found that there's plenty of champagne-style fun to be had on a beer-style budget.

Bon appetit! x
