We’re not just talking about the weather when we say Sydney is looking fine this week. We’ve got our sights set on everything from a new OTT burger, to one hell of a good-cause art exhibition, to a pre-work obstacle course, and FYI, all of your seafood dreams combined are about to come true.
You may need to stop talking about your dog's digestion issues and start dishing on all the awesome (and cultured AF) things you’ve done this week—your work colleagues will thank us.
Here are our top 5 things to do in Sydney this week.
Twisties Burger At Burger Head
Sorry ladies and gents, but it’s officially time to put your healthy lifestyle on pause, a burger made from Twisties exists and you need to try it. Burger Head in Penrith has unleashed a delicious monster, starting with an Angus beef pattie, a ‘lil bit of bacon jam, pickles, ‘Merican cheese, a good squeeze of Twisties mayo (WTF) wedged between a Twisties infused burger bun. There’s more. A big ol’ handful of the real deal Twisties for extra crunch (and calories) has also been thrown into the mix. If your mouth is open right now, well that’s totally fine, ours is too.
What: Twisties Burgers
When: From 21 August
Where: Burger Head, Penrith
