All hail the long weekend! Oh yes, it’s Monday guys and like the absolute legends that we are, we’re basking in the glory of the October long weekend. Hope you guys made the most of that sunshine and did brunch like a boss—we know we did.
Our suggestion? Keep the good times rolling well into your work week with drone film festivals, luxe limited edition makeup aaaand some serious eating challenges. Honestly, it’s more food than we can handle. LOL jokes, challenge = accepted.
Here are five awesome things to do in Sydney this week.
Monday 2 Oct
All Day Rosé
Opera Bar understands that one glass of rosé just won’t cut it. We need rosé all day errryday. This long weekend they’ve thrown a four-day rosé festival with O.G. rosé, bubbly, frosé and even a rosé spritz. We’re calling it early, the rosé spritz will be THE drink of summer. Throw in live music, the postcard level views and all the cheese platters and you’ve got one freaking fabulous way to end the long weekend. Oh and get here early because the first 50 people through the door will score a flower crown and you owe it to your Insta feed to get on that.
When: Monday 2 October, from 11:30am
Where: Opera Bar
Tuesday 3 Oct
Drone Film Festival
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, nope it’s a drone and it gets one kick ass view of, well, pretty much everything. Nerd out to these stunning AF visuals with over thirty films and docos made by production companies and everyday droners alike. Flying in for one-night-only (see what we did there?), you’ll want to be there. More details here.
When: Tuesday 3 October, 6:30pm-9:30pm
Where: Dendy Newtown
Wednesday 4 Oct
World Taco Day
This Wednesday is World Taco Day and thanks to the absolute legends at SoCal, we’ll be celebrating in style. We know what you’re thinking, do you choose the Baja fish, fried halloumi or the spicy steak taco? Obviously, you should have allllll the tacos you can eat and for one night, it’ll only cost you a measly $25. They’re even doing $10 margaritas because tacos + tequila = happiness. Oh SoCal, you just get us.
When: Wednesday 4 Oct, from 12pm
Where: SoCal, Neutral Bay
50c Wing Eating Competition
Wing lovers, this one’s for you. All that training (read: overeating) brought you to this moment: the Wings Wednesday Champion. It’s all happening at Cannonballs Grills and a single wing will only set you back 50 cents. The lifetime of bragging rights, on the other hand, is priceless. Gather the crew and chow down on southern style or sticky honey bourbon wings like the true champ you are. Get your game face on guys—and maybe some stretchy pants too. Details here.
When: Wednesday 4 Oct, from 5:30pm
Where: Cannonballs Grills, Engadine
MECCA’s 20th Birthday
It might be MECCA’s 20th birthday this week but it’ll be you opening all the presents. To celebrate, they’ve teamed up with all the big gun beauty brands (otherwise known as the only reason why we have $12 in our bank account RN) to create exclusive products. There’s a Too Faced ‘funfetti’ eyeshadow palette, rosy lipstick sets from NARS, and a frank body scrub that legit smells like birthday cake. Oh and a truly delicious highlighter trio from Hourglass. We know, we just can’t even.
When: Wednesday 4 October
Where: In-store and Online
