Monday can be such a drag…UNTIL you uncover a darn fine line up of activities (some being edible) that are calling your name.
There really is no shortage of fun times ahead for you Sydneysiders, we’re talking wine paired dinners, 90s kid show trivia nights and rooftop movie nights feat. ridonkulous burgers. So, settle in and get around the action people.
Here are five epic things to do in Sydney this week.
Monday 27 August
FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF AT THE ROOK
The Rook is curing the Monday blues with a screening of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off under the stars on their rooftop cinema. Grab those blankies, curl up on a beanbag and get choosing between the ‘cocktails & popcorn’ package or the ‘burger me’ package. Just so you know, the Deep South Surf and Turf burger is kind of everything you’ve ever wanted squeezed into a bun, think Southern Fried chicken and lobster mayo with fresh tomato and lettuce. You’re welcome. To buy your tickets, click here.

Where: The Rook, Sydney CBD
Cost: Tickets from $15 - $45 per person

90S KID SHOW TRIVIA AT SILY
To think that the days of binge-watching Hey Arnold, The Ren and Stimpy Show and Catdog with the squad would come in handy one day. Well our sweet rug rats, the time has come.
