You asked, and as always our fun filled city has delivered, with some epic events on this week. Get #cultured with a night of art or LOL for hours at the Mardi Gras Comedy Festival opening night gala. Eat your way through Tuesday—cos’ we all know that’s the only way to survive the dullest day of the week, or soak up the last rays of the summer sun on the Northern beaches. Whatever your flavour Sydney’s got you covered.
Here are our top five things to try in Sydney this week.
Australia Open of Surfing
An Australia summer would not be complete without a session on the Northern beaches checking out all the (surfer babes) surf. If you haven’t managed to get yourself across the bridge this summer, it’s not too late. The world’s best surfers and skaters are coming to Manly beach this week and there will be beats and food too. Become fully immersed in Aussie culture and head to the Australian Open of Surfing this week, you know what they say—sun’s out, buns out.

El Camino Cantina
On the 27th of every month El Camino Cantina hosts their 27 Club party. Celebrating the life of Rock ‘n’ Roll legends such as Brian Jones, Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix. These dudes are honoured in true Rock ‘n’ Roll style with $7.50 Margaritas and $5 craft beers; it’s a happy hour we wouldn’t want you to miss. Did we mention there’s trivia?

The Mardi Gras Comedy Festival is back and it’s bringing together comedians from all over the world for an epic week of laughs. The opening night gala boasts some seriously hot talent, such as Hannah Gadsby and Tom Ballard. Suddenly Tuesday doesn’t look so dull.

Festa Di Carnevale at Pasta Emilia
Get yo’ fancy dress on and come along to Pasta Emilia for some mouth-watering Italian delights. Carnevale is the celebration of life; a festa where everyone plays happily together (sounds right up our alley). The four course menu is a showstopper, with creations like thin beetroot spaghetti served with walnut sauce, and beef rolls filled with silverbeet and grana—yum. You know what to do.
