We’ve done the hard yards and here it is – your guide to weeknight happy hours, dinner deals and entertainment on the Border.

Now that the days are getting longer, it’s the perfect time to get out and about in the warmer evenings.

The Border has no shortage of great restaurants, pubs and regular events to enjoy, the only question is what’s on and when?  Here’s our list of weeknight dinner deals, drink specials and entertainment to keep you going until the weekend.

The QEII Twilight Markets are back on the second Sunday of the month between October and December. The market is home to local food, produce, artisan crafts and entertainment.

The Cube Wodonga is once again hosting Fridays on My Mind on the first Friday of the month from October to March with food, music, local wines and activities for the whole family.
