Here are five awesome things to do this week in Sydney.

PATRÓN DAY OF THE DEAD POP-UP
Get ready for the party of the week. Patrón is bringing us a whole bunch of festivities to coincide with Día de los Muertos. They’re bringing us a launch party to kick off the week in style. Transforming Tatler, an underground cocktail bar, into a theme of the Aztecs for one night only. You’ll be dining on a feast of tacos and tostadas alongside Margaritas on arrival. And while you’ve got your happy dance going, there’ll be a live Flamenco band and DJ from Mexico City. Tickets are limited so head here.
When: Monday 29 October, 7-11pm
Where: Tatler Sydney, Darlinghurst
Cost: $25 per person
Tuesday 30 October
EMBRACING THE WILD
This Tuesday, you’ll be exploring the relationship between your emotion wellbeing and nature. A night of self-reflection and exploring our inner and outer wild, this is definitely something worth attending. With amazing guest speakers taking the stand, you’ll begin to understand how your sense of adventure and action can improve your emotional standing. Around this time of the year, you might need a little pick me up. For tickets, jump here.
When: Tuesday 30 October, 7pm
Where: Wesley Conference Centre, Sydney

An insane virtual reality challenge is on the cards this Tuesday. To celebrate the release of Dwayne Johnson’s home entertainment release of Skyscraper, you’ll be able to rock up to Martin Place to walk the plank 200-plus storeys high. There’ll be a leap to safety which means you and your workmates will definitely be in stitches (because there’s always that one guy shit-scared of heights).
When: Martin Place, outside the MLC centre
Where: Tuesday 30 October, 11:30am- 2:30pm
Wednesday 31 October
WATERCOLOUR AND WINE
Grab the lifts up to the rooftop of Broadway Shopping Centre for another ‘Festival of You’ activity. This time it’s your turn to relax and grab some pencils and go to town on a piece of paper. You’ll be given vino to sip on throughout the class so this just got a hundred times better. Don’t worry if you can’t draw to save your life, this class is open to complete beginners, experts and everyone in between. For more details, check this out.

THE GLEBE TASTING TREKS
A walking food tour is something everyone needs to experience at least once in their lifetime. So, this tasty tour is bringing us to Glebe, Sydney’s ultimate foodie haven. There are two sides of Glebe for this tour, and you get the chance to pick. Go through the Northside, where you’ll encounter the likes of Sri Lankan street food and the classic Glebe Point Diner. Or head over to the south where you’ll have a boozier experience at Staves Brewery or Sappho Wine Bar. Rest assured you’ll be meeting up at Different Drummer for some bomb AF dessert options to close out your night. Get your stretchy pants warmed up, they ain’t here to play games this Wednesday.
