This Weekend in Sydney 10/8

Other people may well be getting active – but you don’t have to! There’s plenty of opportunity to watch others this weekend and still have fun.


MARVEL: MISS POLE DANCE NSW HEAT

Even thought that pole dancing isn’t real dancing? Think again, and see for yourself at this weekend’s Miss Pole Dance NSW Heat. While the actual championships to crown the winner won’t be until November, the state hopefuls are bound to bring some fierce competition to The Factory Theatre on Saturday night. Expect flips, tricks and some seriously sultry displays of strength. All the info: https://www.facebook.com/events/1724894787546286/


CHEER: CITY2SURF

If you fancy getting up bright and early this weekend, head down to this year’s City2Surf on Sunday. The annual run from the CBD to Bondi is the largest fun run in the world! Pop on the sunblock and grab a bottle of water and come on down to live out all of your cheerleading fantasies. Don’t forget your money – you’ll want to donate to one of the many good causes that the run is in aid of, and there’ll even be food and live entertainment on the day. Not enough? Entries to run don’t close until Saturday, so it’s up to you. All the details: https://city2surf.com.au/


WATCH: MANSPLAINING AT THE OLD FITZ

Love the theatre and love feminism? You’ll enjoy Mansplaining, offering a double whammy of the two. The brainchild of both Alice Tovey and Ned Dixon, this is one seriously hilarious comedy that you won’t want to miss. Find it at The Old Fitz in Woolloomooloo all weekend – for more info: https://www.redlineproductions.com.au/mansplaining


EAT: FISH BUTCHERY AT CARRIAGEWORKS FARMERS’ MARKET

New stall alert! This weekend, Carriageworks Farmers’ Market will be welcoming Fish Butchery to their roster. Josh Niland, known for his simple yet innovative take on seafood using lesser known varieties, will be offering your chance to try his modern takes on all things seafood and fish. There’ll be plenty of fresh offerings – from things to take home and make yourself, to condiments and even hot stuff available at the stall. Look, sometimes fish are food, not friends... but Niland kind of makes us feel they’re both. Where to find it: http://carriageworks.com.au/events/carriageworks-farmers-market
