Think of this weekend like a Masterchef Mystery Box (minus celebrity Chef’s, the pressure and the whole competition thing) because we’ve got just about everything and anything you could ever want. We’re talking live music, ice cream, art installations, cherry picking, vintage shopping, cocktail sipping and picnic baskets.
Tis the season guys so get around these 12 amazing things to do in Perth this weekend.
Design Circus At Como
Straight from MoMA in New York and the V&A in London, Michael Anastassiades is taking up residence at COMO until next weekend as part of his collaboration with design dream team Mobilia and Caesarstone. With all the proceeds of these one of a kind pieces going to Autism West and Camp Quality, we think it’s time for an early Christmas treat. All the details found here.

Swanbourne’s corner cafe Grounded Days will be pumping out coffee tomorrow and Saturday along with all the pre-loved clothes, accessories and vintage bags.

Kevin Parker At Ice Cream Factory
The Tame Impala mastermind will be taking to the decks at Bar Pop’s newest venue Ice Cream Factory tomorrow night and we’re not sure what’s better… Kevin Parker, the bowling alley, the silent disco, the Flipside Burger Bar or the fact that actual ice creams on offer so we’ll go with all of the above. All the info you need is here.
Forever New X Pops Giveaway
Forever New is teaming up with Pops (the alcoholic popsicle guys) to giveaway alcopops in their CBD store on Friday. It's gonna last until stocks run out, so your best bet is to get there early as poss. The offer kicks off at 5pm (probably to avoid the kiddies).
