Lucky for you Sydney-siders, our awesome city delivers bucket loads of fun every week and just because we’ve said our official goodbyes to summer, there’s still plenty on. We’re welcoming Autumn with stuff that will leaf you thinking ‘who needed summer anyway’?
Here are five awesome things to do this week in Sydney.
Monday 5 March
Open Air Rooftop Cinema
Life’s not always Netflix and chill, but this week, you can have the best of both worlds at The Rook’s Open Air Rooftop Cinema. Go back to the 70s with The Rocky Horror Picture Show and pick yourself up a complimentary cocktail on arrival #winning. FYI there’ll be themed cocktails too, so show up early for pre-show entertainment, meal specials and some good ol’ popcorn (with your cocktail, obvs). More info here.
When: Monday 5 March, 8pm
Where: The Rook, Sydney
Cost: $30 per person
Trivia At The Little Guy
At The Little Guy they live by the mantra ‘it’s gotta be beer o’clock somewhere’ and we so totally agree. Add some free trivia and the chance to win some fancy giveaways and you’ve got us hooked. In case you need some more convincing we’ll tell you again. Booze. Triva. Nuff said.
When: Every Monday night
Where: The Little Guy, Glebe
Tuesday 6 March
Taco Tuesday At Contrabando
Taco Tuesday is an official holiday as far as we’re concerned and you’ll be damned if you don’t fully embrace it. And no one does it better than Contrabando. It’ll be love at first sight with seven finger-lickin’ good varieties, and if you’re feeling game, try your luck with their secret taco. Or just stick to the classics with the spiced prawns with guac or their vegetarian take on the taco, involving Cuban beans with chilli jam, ratatouille and halloumi. Just make sure you book because they fill up fast.
When: Tuesday 6 March, 6pm or 8pm
Where: Basement, 21 Bent Street Sydney 2000
Cost: $3 per taco
Wednesday 7 March
Women Who Farm
This is basically an organic farming revolution and you might want to listen up. We’re talking about Pocket City Farms teaching us all about building soil and saving seeds, and basically how to not destroy them. These guys have rounded up a few locals to chat all things #farmlife like organic agriculture and ethical feeds. And because it’s happening on National Women’s Day Eve, you’ll get to chat to women like Epicurean Harvest's Erika and Kirsti of Old Mill Road. Our hats are off to the soil workin’ women of this country. Also, your first drink + nibbles will be provided. Grab your ticket here.
When: Wednesday 7 March, 6pm
Where: Pocket City Farms, Camperdown
The Urban List’s Love.Food For International Women’s Day
We’re beyond excited to share some—if we do say so ourselves—epic news: we’re launching our new Love.Food event this International Women’s Day and taking over the Sydney Opera House to do it! We’ll be lunching to support the legends from Dress For Success and their (nothing short of epic) Empower Hour, working to empower women at every stage of their life and career.
We’ve joined forces with the best in the biz, Solotel Hospitality Group to bring this event to life. Boss chef Laura Baratto (of Aria and Paddo Inn notoriety), will be dishing up a bespoke menu especially for the day, and we guarantee you’ll want to ‘gram it from all angles (and then tuck the hell into, obvs). Plus—there’s going to be a panel of seriously impressive ladies on deck to help spread those IWD vibes. We’ve teamed up with some of the fashion industry's biggest hitters, namely: the designers behind Bec & Bridge, Tanja Gagic the model-mindfulness-extraordinaire and Pip Edwards.
Head here before close of business Monday 5 March to grab a ticket now to support Dress For Success’ mission of preparing out of work women for the workforce via free training and support.
Here are even more things happening in Sydney this month.
