I think we can all agree that it’s a huge struggle to get out of bed at the moment thanks to all this rain, but this week around Perth you can go out dancing (for free), learn about (and eat) raclette, feast on pork and wine or spend your dollar dollar bills totally guilt-free. If that doesn’t make you want to hop out of bed then bad luck, put on those 10 layers of clothing and do it anyway!
Here are 5 awesome things to do in Perth this week.
TOMS Pop Up Store At Westfield Whitford City
When it comes to shopping, we can all admit that we go a bit crazy sometimes, so why not shop for a good cause? The iconic TOMS shoe store has opened a pop-up store at Westfield Whitford City for the whole of August and is inviting everyone and anyone to join the global One for One movement. TOMS and Westfield will be donating all of their retail profits from the pop-up store to WA’s local charity Therapy Focus, which delivers therapy services that help people living with disability to achieve their goals, how amazing is that?! Get all the info on trading hours here.

Free Kizomba Dance Glass At The Game
Apparently, Kizomba is the latest dance trend to sweep our fair nation, so you might as well get on board! It originated in Angola and the steps are simple so it’s appropriate for anyone, even if you’ve got no dance experience. Grab a couple of friends and dance your Monday blues away tonight at The Game Bar in Northbridge. Get all the deets here.
Wednesday 23 August
Wine & Cheese Masterclass | Raclette & Charcuterie At Frasers Restaurant
Cheese with matched wines is always a pretty good idea, but when it’s raclette cheese, well it’s a no brainer. There will also be local charcuterie and a variety of mountain cheeses, all matched with five different wines. Book your spot here.
Winter Wine Fair at Sweetwater Rooftop Bar
If the thought of roaming canapés at Sweetwater and Australia’s best wineries has got your heart racing then this is the perfect night for you. We’re talking WA’s own Leeuwin Estate, Harewood Estate and Mazza Wines plus more from the Yarra Valley, Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale to get your taste buds tingling. With tickets at $30 per person, this will truly make the mid-week hump that much more enjoyable. To book tickets click here.
Nose to Tail Pig Dinner At Young George
We're all familiar with the popular term ‘wine and dine’, but now you can ‘swine and wine’ at Young George which sounds so much better, doesn’t it? You will be indulging (or overindulging?) in a nose to tail banquet style dinner in celebration of the whole beast that is the Pig. Huzzuh. Chef Melissa Palinkas, also known as the ‘Pork Star’ has teamed up with Linley Valley Pork & Ironcloud Wines to bring you this amazing banquet. With limited spaces available, you’d be crazy not to book! Secure your spot here.
