Whether you’re loved up or loving yourself sick there’s more than enough awesome going on in our fair city to have you entertained, and potentially ending up in a food coma. This week at The Urban List we’re treating ourselves to the best events Sydney has to offer, including baked goods, feasts, BBQ, lobster rolls and good deeds—take your pick.
March into Merivale Launch Party
It's all the things you love in one fabulous place. We're talking pop up stalls of the famous Merivale kitchens from ivy, Pool Club, Ballroom and Ash Street laneway. You'll eat, drink and get nice and merry with their crafted food, epic drinks and live entertainment from some of the best venues in Sydney. Get the lowdown on the festival of the year here.
A Table To End Hunger
Always wanted to eat at one of Sydney’s top restaurants but never get your act together when it comes to booking a table? Well, now’s your chance, as some of the top restaurants across Sydney, including the likes of Noma, Aria, Quay and others, are coming together to support The Hunger Project’s work to end world hunger by 2030 by reserving tables for donators during their busiest times. We’re talking Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, giving us all the chance to bid online and dine that same week. We’ll eat to that.
