We’ve just realised something about ourselves guys, and we have a feeling that you’ll be in the same boat. As the wintery weather rolls on in, we’re turning to delicious food and wine/cocktails/alcoholic anything even more. This week has got yo’ back, with Wild Turkey events all around town, a pop-up cinema, and a food and wine festival that should keep you all nice and busy.
Monday 22nd May
Sydney Writers’ Festival
The program for Sydney Writers’ Festival has gone next-level this year, with a line up of Australian and international writers invading Sydney. Representing for the international contingent, Editor of Teen Vogue Elaine Welteroth, memoirist Hisham Mitar, and 2016 Booker Prize winner Paul Beaty will take to the stage. Now if you’re not one for snuggling up with a warm cuppa and a great book (slight judgement only), then you’re in luck. Podcaster Jamie Morton, of My Dad Wrote A Porno infamy will also be there—you’re welcome.
When: May 22 – 28

Get all the deets here.

Where: Pyrmont Point Hotel
Cost: $75 per person
Wild Turkey Way At Annandale Hotel
Listen up burger and bourbon fans—there’s a pop-up happening in Sydney right now and it was made for you. Wild Turkey has teamed up with Burgers by Josh and they’re taking over Annandale Hotel this Friday night. There’ll be signature cocktails happening at the bar (in fact, they’ll be available all month)—the Wild Turkey Kentucky Firebird is worth a mention, because the glass is smoked, then spiked with a combination of Grand Marnier, Cinzano Rosso, Maraschino and Wild Turkey 101. There’ll also be a Wild Turkey gold rush cocktail, which is as fun as it sounds, and a bourbon-themed food menu featuring smoked turkey wings with a peach and bourbon sauce and a wagyu bourbon burger. This also doubles as an art gallery as Wild Turkey has teamed up with Bertie Blackman, Nikolaus Doleman & Will Coles who have created artworks on Whiskey Barrels.
What: Wild Turkey Way
When: Friday 26 May, from 6.30pm
Where: Annandale Hotel
