Five Awesome Things To Do In Sydney

Sydneysiders, this week is shaping up to be a big one. Prepare yourselves to eat, drink, be entertained and get active. Now, we get you, there’s so little time but soooo much to do. Because here at The Urban List we got yo’ back, here’s our pick of the top five things to do in Sydney this weekend.

World Champagne Week at Bistrot Gavroche

Friday October 21 marks World Champagne Day. Say what!? In our eyes this should really be a public holiday, but given we don’t have that sort of power (yet) we’ll settle for a week celebrating our favourite bubbles. That’s where Bistrot Gavroche come in. They’re taking Sydney’s love for champagne and dedicating an entire week to it. From Monday 17 – Sunday 23 of October enjoy an abundance of fine champagnes, sure to make Monday and all the days that follow, très bon.

When: Monday 17 – Sunday 23 October
Where: Bistrot Gavroche, Level 1, 2-10 Kensington Street, Chippendale

Chippendale Cellars Wine Fair

Mid-week wine fairs make this whole adulating situation that we find ourselves in a whole lot more bearable. Two of the best in the business, Chippendale Cellars and Cake Wines, are hosting this year’s annual wine fair and putting a nice red wine smile on all of our faces. You’ll sample over 60 local and imported wines, as well as taste a selection of cured meats and cheeses, all perfectly matched of course.

Good Food Regional Dinner at Casoni

Different to your traditional Italian setting, this funky little establishment boasts fresh Italian fare and drinks to match. As part of Good Food month, Casoni is brining the ultimate combination of Italian cuisine and Australian produce to your belly. They will be showcasing food from various Italian regions using the finest in Australian produce. The dinners will be held every Tuesday in October, with the regions of Liguria and Piedmont on the menu. That means you’ll be feasting on the likes of pesto and anchioves as well as ALL of the antipasti and grissini you can handle.

Monday Movies At The Soda Factory

Say you’ll be there at the Soda Factory this Monday for their Spice World screening. There’s nothing like a dose of nostalgia and a quick trip back to the 90s when you and your mates used to spend a tad too much time working out which Spice you were. Halter necks and mini skirts at the ready, and bring your hunger to chow down one of their signature gourmet hot dogs and of course, fries.

When: Monday 17 October, from 5pm

Free Table Tennis in Redfern 

Here at the Urban List we love a free activity. Every Tuesday and Friday between 12.45pm and 3pm head to the Ron Williams Community Center for a cheeky table tennis session. It’s totally doable in your lunch break, just BYO paddle and ball or borrow one from the center. Catch you on the court.
