An apple a day keeps the doctor away. But what's the cure for those midweek blues? The night market at 27 Boxes in Melville is a milky way of jewellery, drinks, fashion, food, art and trinkets. Every Wednesday evening starting at 5, tables, stalls and shipping container stores shine a twinkling new light on the typical sullen mood that is synonymous with the middle of the week. Champagne, tacos, cocktails and live music send any thoughts of looming deadlines, office politics and performance reviews out of orbit, while hipster-y fashion stores allow for the kind of blissful relief that only retail therapy can provide. Evening strolls: They just keep getting better.
