Now, there are a whole lot of leisure activities that'd be particularly awesome to share with superheroes - or, at least, with the awesome actors who play them on the big screen.

Hitting a Football game with super-fans Chris Evans (a.k.a. Captain America) and Chris Pratt (a.k.a. Star-Lord), for instance, or grabbing chimichangas with Ryan Reynolds (a.k.a. Deadpool) - and hell, if Robert Downey Jr. was the one doing the inviting, I reckon most of us'd give pretty much anything a go.

If you were ever going to hang out with Hugh Jackman, though - Wolverine himself - there'd arguably be no better activity than grabbing a simple, high-class dinner in an awesome restaurant. After all, Jackman really...

Pit stop at Sarabeth's Kitchen after @kellyandmichael. You are both awesome. See you in October!

...loves his food, as ably illustrated by his Instagram feed.

Which, if you ask me, makes this next piece of information all the more ridiculously enticing:

You Can Now Bid on a Dinner for Two With Hugh Jackman

That's right, if you've got a spare $25,000 or so lying around, you could soon be winging your way to New York to grab dinner with Hugh Jackman, his wife Deborra-Lee Furness, and Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop.

That, y'see, is the awesome-sounding experience you can bid on as part of the 2015 Midwinter Ball over in Australia - one in which you'd be flown out to New York in business class, before being wined and dined by Jackman and co.

Which sounds like a great time, and all - unless you don't happen to agree with Bishop's politics, or have a big thing for Sabretooth - but, sadly, does require a bid larger than $25,000. If you've got a small fortune to spare, though - though $25k in Australian dollars works out as around $19.4k US, so you might 'only' need around $20 grand to win - then it's bound to be a pretty incredible experience - one which you can bid on right here.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to root around down the back of my couch, just in case someone dropped $20,000 in small change back there...
