FREE STUFF! Friendly peddlers on tricycles will be merrily cycling through Melbourne streets from January 26 till March 11 doling out free Negroni granitas (well, virgin ones at least, but they'll also give you discount vouchers on the real boozy deal – an Australianised version of the Italian cocktail made with West Winds gin and Maidenii vermouth – which you can pick up at bars about town.) To find out their scheduled stops and score yourself an icy treat, make sure you follow them on Facebook or Twitter.
A quick tip: the first place you'll spy them is at the Bishop of Ostia on 'Straya Day. Geddidinya!
