This Weekend in Sydney 27/7

It may well be mid-winter but let’s face it, in Sydney, it’s not all bad. We can’t guarantee warmth, but we can guarantee a weekend not wasted.


LEARN: COMMUNE PRESENTS – LOVE YOUR GUTS

Ever wondered how all those folk on Instagram manage to keep on top of everything in their lives? If you – like us – have envy for people who somehow seem to know everything there is to know about making their body a temple, COMMUNE’s workshop, Love Your Guts, is for you. They’re spilling all the secrets when it comes to nutrition and what to eat, all thanks to nutritionist Lydia Irving. You’ll learn everything there is to know about your health and food (both good and bad), plus you’ll learn how to make special stuff to keep on top of it all at home.

EAT: BARZURA CHRISTMAS IN JULY 2018

July is a funny time in Sydney, not least because we’re treated to an array of traditional Christmas activities. A classic Christmas dinner may well be the best part of the whole thing, and this weekend’s your last chance to sneak in a feast. Barzura in Coogee is hosting their very own take, including roast turkey with all the trimmings. Why Barzura? They’ve seriously gone to town on the Christmas cocktails. We’re eyeing up the butterscotch hot chocolate… Check out the menu: https://www.barzura.com.au


SHOP: SYDNEY ROCK ‘N’ ROLL ALTERNATIVE MARKETS

Do you live for all things alternative? Ditch the high street and head along the Sydney’s very own alternative markets at Manning Bar, a treasure trove for everything out of the ordinary. Whether you’re seeking some sick new threads or want to spend the day trawling for rare vintage, you’re bound to find something you like. At this unique cultural collective, everything’s bound to be quirky and different – from the vintage clothes down to the homeware. As if all that’s not enough, you can even try your hands (and feet!) at a rockabilly dance class. Don’t miss out!
