Sydney, summer is almost here and we're on the countdown to Christmas, which means there's an epic sling of activities to get around mid-week.
Here are five awesome things to do this week in Sydney.
Bottomless Margaritas And Endless Tacos
A hectic Mexican fiesta, by the name of Margarita Mansion, is descending on Darling Harbour, which means you’re in for a whole lot of frozen concoctions. On the menu, you’ll find “Bhang Bhang” with strawberry and lemongrass, “Sexico” with watermelon and basil, “Mango Fuego” with mango and jalapeno, “Pineapple Mansion” with pineapple and mint and “Loco Coco” with coconut and pandan. Along with this, you’ll also get the opportunity to upscale your drink to a “mega frozen” size—a massive share goblet.

Disney’s Frozen 2 At The Grounds
All in celebration of Disney’s Frozen 2, you can now find The Enchanted Forest packed with autumn leaves and Crystal Lane decked out diamonds and illuminated trees. As for the treats you can dig into, there are three absolutely worth your time and all will be available in The Cafe and Potting Shed until Wednesday 29 January. The Ice Queen is a vanilla sponge cake topped with raspberries and cream cheese frosting, Frost Bite is a vanilla cookie decorated with white icing and Olaf’s Delight which is a tart for two loaded with rhubarb, plus and apple fillings.

Junkyard Comedy Club
