Any week that begins with a public holiday is bound to be a good week, but with all that’s happening this (short) week ahead, it’s on another level. Make the most of your Monday off (there’s time for recovery, and time to just push through) and spend the rest of the week enjoying all our city’s got to offer!
From theatre to feasts to wine, there’s a lot to love about this week. Here are 5 awesome things to do this week in Perth!
Monday 24 September
Angostura Takeover At Mechanics Institute
One of your favourite small bars—Mechanics Institute—is playing host to an Angostura Takeover this week when winner of their 2018 Cocktail Challenge, Daniel Gregory, comes to town to show his stuff. He’ll be mixing up a selection of tipples for your Monday—so make sure you get down to try a few!
Tuesday 25 September
Court My Crotch At Blue Room Theatre
Sports meet drag in this high-spectacle performance from Fugue: Court my Crotch, a stern but entertaining look at how our society deals with gender and sexuality in sport. The show attempts to incorporate a variety of real-life stories collected through a process of interviews with the sporting and LGBTQI+ communities—so get ready to feel all of the feels. Nothing like a bit of soul searching and a bit of show-person-ship at the same time!
Wednesday 26 September
Dine Italy At Il Lido
As if the menu at Il Lido could get any better, they are packing in the winter goodness with Dine the Regions of Italy: a 20-week series of specially curated four-course, wine paired menus that span the 20 regions of Italy. This week they’re in Sicily, one of the most tantalising spots in Italy when it comes to food. You know what to do.
Thursday 27 September
Henschke 150th Anniversary Wine Dinner At Wildflower
150 years of winemaking is a pretty mean feat, and the Henschke family is celebrating that milestone this year in true style—namely, by launching a couple of new, very special wines and a hardcover book about their winemaking journey! Taste twelve new release wines paired with food from Wildflower Executive Chef Jed Gerrard at this Anniversary Wine Dinner—the perfect antidote to your Thursday slump.
Strangetables | Cocktails & Tapas At Strange Company
After multiple sold out dinners, the living legends over at Strange Company are throwing another Strangetables Dinner for all those who’ve missed out so far (well, 20 of them, at least—there’s seriously limited spots). The cocktails/tapas combo is a thing of true beauty, and in this dinner, you get four delightful courses of it. Who can resist?
