Declare a Temporary Ceasefire at the Melbourne Night Noodle Markets
Ideological division is a problem that, despite the fact that humanity has made great strides in so many areas and evolved to great degree, seems to maddeningly be increasing in many facets of society.
As lazy cowards-cum-pacifists we are always looking for ways to unite and diffuse, rather than divide and ignite.
And if there’s one thing that we’ve noticed over our many years of being largely ignored at social events, it’s that there is no greater pacifier than food.
From the moment we’re born, comfort is afforded by shoving something into our mouths, and when that specific comfort is no longer deemed acceptable by wide society, we replace it with other things that also eventually become uncomfortably fetishized.
There is no better place to quiet petty factionalism and remember that although you may disagree on many political, social, civil, cultural and economic ideas, your family (biological or otherwise) is the only thing preventing you from facing the apocalypse alone without a ready source of fresh meat and mutant zombie fodder, than the Melbourne Night Noodle Markets.
Yes, the eagerly-awaited Melbourne Night Noodle Markets return to Birrarung Marr! Serving up savoury, sweet and spicy street-food from China, Vietnam, Thailand and beyond, the Night Noodle Markets will transform the banks of the Yarra into a vibrant hawker-style market for 18 noodle-filled nights. The food festival will not only offer delicious dishes – there’ll be live music, DJs and plenty of good vibes.
