Getting through the working week can be a tough gig, which is why we’re firm believers in having fun stuff to look forward to after the working day is done. Dinner and drinks (or whatever you’re into) make for excellent distractions while you eagerly await the weekend, and Perth isn’t shy about bringing the goods.
Here are five awesome things to do in Perth this week.
Various Locations Across Perth
This week we’re celebrating the greatness that is the Negroni, and Perth is getting on board in a big way. Loads of our favourite bars will be serving up their unique twist on this iconic cocktail all week long and donating a portion of sales to charities around the world. That means you can enjoy a drink and do a good deed at the same time, so, win-win.
So, who’s in? Here’s where you’ll find some seriously delicious Negronis around town.
Monday 24 June
Craft Club At The Local
Monday nights can be a bit of a non-event, but The Local has teamed up with some creative types to change that, with the introduction of their new Craft Club Nights. Dubbed as the “craft club for people who don’t do craft clubs”, this is a great opportunity to stretch your creative wings, meet some nice peeps, and get crafty in a completely non-judgey environment. Cost is a small donation, which will go to Headspace Fremantle.
Tuesday 25 June
The Black Truffle Dinner At La Lola
Truffle season is well and truly upon us, and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate this decadent delight than with a four-course dinner at La Lola. They’ve created a special menu of pure indulgence using the infamous Manjimup truffle and paired it with premium wines for the ultimate experience in earthy flavours. Tickets are $150 per person. Bookings are essential.
Wednesday 26 June
Chalk N Cheese At Chalk And Cheese Bar & Kitchen
East Victoria Park
It’s the middle of the week and you’re flagging, but we’re here to get you up and over the hump with some awesome mid-week specials from the new Chalk N Cheese Bar & Kitchen. Seems these guys really know how to Wednesday, and they’re sharing the love with a happy hour between 4 and 6pm ($10 cocktails!), $20 steaks and parmis with complimentary beer or wine, and friendly Mario Kart rallies.
Thursday 27 June
Lululemon Store Opening At Forrest Chase
We’re well into winter and as we all know, this is the time when exercising can seem just that bit harder than usual. Thankfully the team at lululemon have got our backs; opening a brand new store in the heart of the CBD so we can jazz up our activewear wardrobes and get those motivation levels back on track. At the opening guests can create a profile and go into the draw for a $500 shopping experience, or sign up for two complimentary yoga classes to be held under the spectacular Borealis by Dan Archer.
