Heeeelllooo, July! We’ve hit halfway through the year but there’s no slowing down with dumplings, wine and chilli cheese fries all to be consumed this week (yeah, we’re all deep into our winter bodies like no one’s business).
On top of the feeds, you can also watch ‘Dirty Dancing’ under the stars and soak up all the jazz tunes ever in a hidden underground bar. You’ve got no time to rest, Sydney, so get on up and show us how it’s done.
Here are six awesome things to do this week in Sydney!

Three years of INDU calls for wining and dining and we are all lucky enough to be invited on this particular week in Sydney. Justin McNamee from Samuel’s Gorge will be introducing an array of wines to be tasted from 2015, ’16 and one special vintage surprise (tingles!). The wines will be paired with INDU’s set four-course menu including beef tartar, lamb ribs and slow cooked venison haunch with bitter chocolate curry (we are as curious as you are), so head on over to INDU to spice up your average Tuey night.
