No matter how much we wished for it not to, the weekend is over. Mondayitis has officially hit and the struggle is oh so real. That’s where we come in, because here at the Urban List we know weekdays can actually be super fun— if you know what to do. So gather round all you Sydneysiders looking for a good time, this week is packed full with epic entertainment that’ll have you laughing all the way to hump day.
Here are 5 awesome things to do in Sydney this week.
Dinner With John M. Green At Flying Fish
Enjoy the views of Sydney Harbour and tuck into a two-course dinner at Flying Fish on Jones Bay Wharf. The man himself, John M. Green, will take us on a journey into his latest eco-political thriller, The Tao Deception. We’re talking espionage and spies, and it’s safe to say we’re hooked already. The menu is a mystery right now (see what they did there?) but there’s no doubt it’ll be damn right delicious, plus you get a glass of sparking wine on arrival.
Get the details here.
When: Monday 14 November, 6.30pm
Where: Flying Fish Restaurant – Jones Bay Wharf, 19-22 Pirrama Road, Pyrmont
Monday Night Movies At Soda Factory
We can always guarantee a good night when Soda Factory is involved. Whether it’s Jukebox Thursdays or a boogie on Soda Saturdays these guys have you sorted. Congratulate yourself for getting through Monday (we know we will be) and head down to Wentworth Avenue to catch the Monday movie. This week it’s Heathers. Winona Ryder and shoulder pads sure do make for some good classic entertainment and gourmet hot dogs (a must) are $16 and did we mention they come with fries? We love Mondays.
