So we’ve made it to the middle of March—how has this happened?! But while the time might be sneaking away from us, it doesn’t mean we should be spending it idly. Here are five awesome things you could be getting up to in Sydney this week.
Southern Comfort Festival
The southern smoky carnival has is visiting Sydney’s shores for ten whole days. If y’all are after a bit of Southern comfort, get yourself down to Surly’s in Surry Hills. We’re talking beef brisket, fried chicken wings, Louisiana gumbo, Texas BBQ and much, much more. Top it all off with a whiskey sour and some country blues music, and we got ourselves a hoedown you’re not gonna wanna miss.
What: Sydney Southern Comfort Carnival
When: Wednesday 15 – Saturday 25 March, from 6pm

Italian Wines Roadshow
We all love a good vino (and we mean the unconditional, everlasting, one-true-love kind of love) so we know you’ll be pretty rapt about the tenth edition of the Italian Wines Roadshow next Monday. Gambeo Rosso has organised the best of the best, with 65 wineries and over 250 wines for you to taste, many of which are not ordinarily available in Australia. This is not one to miss guys, arrive sensibly sober, and leave 12 (or more) glasses down, merrily singing ‘That’s Amore’ while booking a plane ticket to Naples on your iPhone. These things have to be done.
What: 2017 Italian Wines Roadshow
When: Monday 13 March, all day from 12pm-8:30pm
Where: Doltone House Hyde Park, 3/181 Elizabeth Street, Sydney
