Time is flying by (how are we already a week into February?), and that Sydney life is a case of so many awesome things, so little time.
To put it simply, this week is going to be just as packed. Clear those calendars and book yourself in for a Moonlight Cinema under the starry sky, some stress-free moments at the Okinawa pop-up and bulk brews at the Munich Brauhous.
Heartbeats On The Streets Of Barangaroo
No plans, no worries; The Streets of Barangaroo are here to help you find love ahead of Valentine’s Day. In a tasty collab with Dear Pluto, The Streets are hosting a dining and dating tour at various venues in the precinct. Forget awkward, one-on-one conversations, and a string of lackluster prospects, this event will be a fun night out and ensure the drinks are flowing (even if the conversation isn't). Ladies, loosen yourselves up with a cocktail or two at Bel and Brio, while Men, you can calm those nerves with a whisky on the rocks at Shirt Bar. The night will continue with a number of 20-minute stops at Anason, Banksii and Zushi before a final mixer where love-birds can pronounce their love (we're suckers for romance)... or just exchange numbers.
When: Tuesday 7th February, 6:30pm-9pm
Where: The Streets of Barangaroo
Cost: $45 per person (Includes food and five drinks tokens), get tickets here.
Catch Loving At The Moonlight Cinema
A classic Sydney summer must-do returns this week with the season’s latest flicks. Settle down for a (most likely ridiculously hot) summer evening, and enjoy an advanced screening this Tuesday of Loving. The movie follows the struggles of Richard and Mildred Loving, an interracial couple that are sentenced to prison in Virginia in 1958 after getting married. Guaranteed to pull at a few heartstrings, this movie is a must-see. Don’t worry you can drown your tears (BYO tissues) in the fab food and on-hand bevvies!
When: Tuesday 7th February
Where: Belvedere Amphitheatre, Centennial Park
Cost: from $14.50-$35 buy tickets here.
Urban Winery Producer Night With Salumi Australia
Urban Winery is ensuring our glasses are always half full (of wine, that is) this February with a month packed with exciting events that kick off this week. For all our wine enthusiasts (aka everybody) out there, the winery is offering a series of producer evenings where you can talk all things wine, and have a good ol' barrel chat with Salumi Australia co-founder Michael Dlask. While learning about wine is great, drinking it is even better, and don't worry there will be wine a-plenty. Guests will be treated to a dangerously delicious selection of Salumi Australia's produce, we're talking garlic and fennel salami, pancetta, bottarga and A.Retief wines to wash it down.
When: Wednesday 8th February 6pm-8pm
Where: 75 Mary Street, Saint Peters
Cost: $80pp, book tickets here. Booking fee's will be donated to OzHarvest.
Limited Edition Beers At Munich Brauhaus
Say Guten Tag to our very own German escape in the heart of Sydney—The Munich Brauhaus in The Rocks. With a spread of limited edition wheat biers (straight from the old country) on offer, you'll be swearing you're in the heart of Munich (after a beer or ten, of course). So grab yourself a fruity Hofbräu Hefe Weizen or a textural Hacker-Pschorr Hefe Weisse in your choice of stein, before the kegs run dry.
When: Wednesday 1st February
Where: The Rocks, CBD
Cost: Free entry

Avoid the hustle and bustle of Sydney this February and head to the Okinawan pop-up and live activation in Chippendale. Okinawa is the most southern point of Japan and the people are renowned for longevity, thanks to their healthy diet, constant activity and positive outlook on life. Did someone say #inspo? Sydney is giving us a taste of Okinawan culture; with Karate demonstrations from a Karate Master, meditation and yoga workshops from Lulu Lemon, travel discounts from Flight Centre and Okinawan catering (we can't forget the food!) with signature dishes, tea and beer.
