Whether you feel like getting arty this week or you really just need to eat and drink the days away, there’s something in store that’ll bring you that work-life balance people are always talking about. Buckle in for a busy week: here are five awesome things to do this week in Perth.
Monday 16 April
Barrel Finishes at Helvetica
Ever wonder why all your favourite alcoholic beverages have to get put in barrels before you can enjoy them? Find out why at Helvetica’s Barrel Finishes, an educational evening that comes with a side of whisky and snacks. Learn about traditional and experimental techniques for barreling, chat about the history of whisky making and gain a deeper appreciation for tasting and drinking your favourite dram.
Wednesday 18 April
John Kosovich Wine Dinner at Duende
The only thing better than treating yourself to Duende’s delicious food on a week night? Enjoying it with a few glasses of premium, locally made wine, of course—at this Wine Dinner. John Kosovich Wines is the third oldest winery in the Swan Valley, and the oldest with wines still being made by the original family! So, ya’ know, they know a thing or two about a good drop. Three courses, six wines, a whole lotta’ flavour. Bring a hot date!
Thursday 19 April
Jessie Gordon and Adrian Galante at The Ellington Jazz Club
Indulge in a blue tune come Thursday night, as your soul soaks up all the piano, ukulele and incredible vocals that it can get it with Jessie Gordon and Adrian Galante at The Ellington! Feel it all with a few sorrowful ballads, and then get brought back up by some swinging classics!
Sour Sirens at Old Faithful Bar & BBQ
Sour beer is trending hard right now and we can’t say we’re disappointed about it. Head to this night of sour beer exploration to enjoy four of WA’s best sours with a sumptuous feast from the crew at Old Faithful—paired perfectly, of course—and enjoyed in the bar’s brand spanking laneway space!
Wine & Design at Henry On Eighth
Feel like getting crafty this week instead? Head to ya’ fave neighbourhood watering hole for Wine & Design, where, as the name suggests, you can enjoy a glass of vino while being guided through your very own art project. Don’t worry—no art skills necessary. Start with a blank canvas and just let the grape juice (we mean, your creative juices…) do their thing.
