Perth has got the memo that we're over the cold weather, so it’s turned up the heat in the events department. We’re talking warm spiced apple cider, hot wing challenges, fiery live performances and a heart-warming dinner experience. No need to reach for the blankets Perthlings, we’ll have you toasty in no time.
Here are 5 awesome things to do in Perth this week.
Monday 14 August
Windsor Widow Maker At The Windsor Hotel
Do you think you can handle the heat? Get down to the launch of The Windsor Hotel’s Windsor Widow Maker challenge today and put your taste buds to the test. Conquer eight wings covered in Dingo’s spiciest sauce to date in eight minutes and score yourself a $100 bar voucher (plus the wings for free.) These bad boys are so hot you’ll need to sign a waiver before taking part and wear gloves while you’re eating! Plus if you don’t win today, you can keep popping back until you take home the crown as this little challenge is sticking around. Get all the spicy info here.
