5 Awesome Things To Do In Sydney This Week

By Frances Magiera - 17 Jul 2017


This week we’re all about embracing the sad reality that we’re #notineurope, and instead, commit to eating our way through winter. Just quietly, we think we’re up to the challenge. From all you can eat mussels (YES), perfect seafood thanks to our mate Zac, and an epic food and culture festival by the sea. 

Here are 5 awesome things to do in Sydney this week.

Monday 17 July

All You Can Eat Mussels 

If you didn’t already know, we’re a little bit extremely obsessed with anything that’s available in copious amounts. Especially when it comes to seafood. All you can eat mussels are now a thing, and you can get them at French-inspired restaurant, Ananas. Alongside mussels, there will also be unlimited très délicieux frites (translation: some damn delicious all you can eat chips). Seeing as this is the closest to Paris we’ll be getting all winter, we’ll be making like the Parisians and eating our own body weight in mussels. And chips. This is not for the faint-hearted. 

When: Monday 17 July
Where: Ananas
Cost: $30pp

Yoga At The Sustainable Salon

What better way to ease into that #wintershred resolution than with some downward dog?! Not only does it improve core strength and overall flexibility, meditational yoga also clears the mind and helps to relieve everyday stresses like—what’s for dinner? Have we walked the dog today? Done those taxes yet? At the Sustainable Salon, anyone can give yoga a go, even if you’re like us and still can’t touch our toes without cheating and bending our knees. The intimate classes are based on a Pay What You Feel model, so the lack of pennies due to EOFY sales aren’t an excuse to skip yoga class. 

When: Monday 17 July 
Where: the Sustainable Salon, Surry Hills
Cost: Pay What You Feel

Tuesday 18 July

Bondi Feast For Sydney Fringe

Bondi Feast is back for another year to show you that both festivals and the beach go together nicely in the colder months too. Grab a mulled cider during happy hour (6-7pm), and be entertained by hilariously witty performances from a sassy a cappella satire, sex ed master class, and even a three-hour dance-along aerobics party (what better excuse to bust out those leg warmers). It wouldn’t be a feast without a killer line-up of tasty morsels that you can stuff yo’ face with. This year you can expect beach-inspired Latin bites by Bondi Rumba (think halloumi tacos and nachos to share), traditional Bratwurst sausages by the German Hut, and deep-fried dumplings by Nepalese-inspired Omomo. Bring your mates and your appetite.

When: Tuesday 18 July - Saturday 29 July
Where: Bondi Pavilion, Bondi Beach

Sydney Festival’s SHIT 

As the name suggests, SHIT by Patricia Cornelius and Susie Dee is filled with naughty words that you don’t usually find at the theatre. Be prepared to simultaneously laugh and cry at the raw honesty of this play, which examines the fine line between class and misogyny (#realtalk). The three leading ladies are rough ‘n’ tumble, and serve to command attention to all females who don’t fit social stereotypes. BYO tissues—this one’s bitterly funny and tragically heartbreaking at the same time. 
When: Tuesday 18 July - Saturday 29 July
Where: Seymour Centre
Cost: $42, tickets here

Wednesday 19 July

Zac's Table @ North Bondi Fish

Zac’s Table at North Bondi Fish is back for the second-last time this year. AKA, this is the second-last time you can gorge on a multitude of dishes specially crafted by Chef Zac Sykes. The communal style dinner features fresh sustainable ingredients, designed to showcase the very best of Australian produce. Think fresh mud crab, sashimi platters, and deep-fried salted caramel ice cream, all paired with a glass of wine from the Hunter Valley wine country’s Krinklewood Vineyard. 

When: Wednesday 19 July
Where: North Bondi Fish
Cost: $75pp

Here are a bunch of other fun things happening this month.
