Take a culinary adventure this week and journey through the exotic spice trail or experience the best of what regional NSW has to offer. And after you’ve done all that, get your fill of back-to-back laughs at two pop culture packed nights. With this list of awesome things to do in Sydney, there’s never a dull moment in our fair city.
Spoiler Alert: Movie Show
If you fancy yourself a bit of a movie buff or are just looking for a good quality laugh, the Spoiler Alert: Movie Show at the Giant Dwarf Theatre is how you’ll want to spend your Tuesday evening. Part quiz show, part comedy set, the night is filled with pun-tiful games like Charades of the Lost Arc and The Talented Mr Scribbly. Panellists will include Kyran Wheatley (triple j) and Gary Eck (comedian and writer of Happy Feet 2) and at just $17 a ticket, it’s a night of all ‘round silliness and we love it.
When: Tuesday 17th November
Taste of Orange at The Winery
Surry Hills favourite, The Winery, is helping Sydneysiders get through hump day by feeding their hungry bellies and keeping their wine glasses filled. Offering a bespoke three-course menu designed around the elements of water, earth and air, perfectly paired with five wines from the Orange region, you’re glass will always be half full. At $89 per person, it’s a date night that’s guaranteed to impress. More info here.

Nickelodeon Vs. Cartoon Network Trivia at GoodGod
Say so long to dated pub trivia nights that ask questions like who won the 100m sprint in 1957 or which ABBA song first reached number one (seriously I wasn’t even born then) and get ready to represent the 90s at GoodGod this Wednesday. Reviving the classic rivalry between Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network, things are guaranteed to get heated. Entry is free but the night will be on a first come, first serve basis so we recommend getting your toon-ey butts down there early (doors open at 5pm and trivia starts at 8pm).
When: Wednesday 18th November
