Bordering on the ridiculous, it makes for a super fun night out—it’s loud, it’s weird, and it’s just plain funny. There are girls in midriffs riding sharks, fighting giant pandas, a Chinese dragon and cartwheeling dancers—all done with a lot of electric guitars and bongos. There are bento boxes, edamame and plenty of drinks, so make sure you grab some tickets before they sell out!

Coco Chocolate In The City
Spunky Bruiser and Soto Smith are bringing Coco Chocolate to Oxford Street, and boy are we excited. They compare the event to a night of wine tasting—except there’s zero wine and a whole lot of chocolate!

Tomato Festival Sydney
