It’s finally Friday, and we’re all ready to get started on the long weekend. With so much to do — Easter feasts, staycations and (for those jetting off for a getaway) regional events — there’s more than enough activities to keep us occupied and well-entertained over the public holiday.

If you still can’t decide what to do or where to go, check out The Cheat Sheet’s roundup of stories for some inspiration. This week, we delve into the origins of uni (for the uninitiated, this is a sea urchin’s tasty reproductive organs), get some advice on how to best enjoy whisky, and make a list of the things we want to buy from Louis Vuitton’s collaboration with Fragment Design — which drops 22 April.
