This Weekend In

Alright Perthies, December has embraced us with open arms and this weekend is looking top notch! Whether it be frolicking around at a festival, having your Pitch Perfect moment with an a capella group, treating yourself at the markets, stuffing your face with endless amounts of crispy fried chicken or all of the above—there’s certainly loads to do and we don’t blame you for trying to fit it all in!

Here are 14 stellar things to do in Perth this weekend.

Friday 2 December

Eat Fried Chicken (guilt-free) For A Good Cause

If you’re looking for an excuse to eat endless amounts of crispy fried chicken guilt-free, you’ve come to the right place. For the entire month of December, Ribs & Burgers will be serving up succulent ribs of tender goodness for Ribs 4 Kids in support of Save Our Sons (the peak body for Duchenne in Australia). Served with their legendary ranch sauce (it’s seriously so good you could drink it), these mouth-watering new ribs are an absolute must, and considering $2 from each sale will go straight to the children’s charity, you can eat as many as you want.

Where: All Ribs & Burgers stores nationwide 
When: 1 December – 31 December

Love & Lové | Highgate

It’s time to jiggle off those weekday blues at Late Night Valentine with the Kalonga team this Friday night.

Time to loosen those ties, gents, and get rid of those pencil skirts, ladies.

The Secrets of Mansinging | Fremantle

If you’re like us, you’ll occasionally indulge in a few guilty repeats of Pitch Perfect each year. Not only because of Fat Amy’s one-liners but also for the epic a capella scenes.

Gizzfest Perth | Perth

Does the sound of courtyard vibes on a balmy Sunday evening just excite you? Top that off with King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard entertaining you and you’ve got yourself a night to remember. The band have been crushing it all over the world on their Nonagon Infinity album tour selling out nearly every show in Europe, US and Australia and owning major festival main stages the world over including our own Splendour in the Grass and Dark Mofo. Hot damn! For a band that always does things their own way on their own terms, this is an opportunity for them to bring their own special kind of multi-act madness to their intimate shows.
