What should I do this weekend?
Ok so it’s 2014 in case you didn’t know. You’re probably a little bit disorientated but that’s ok. Maybe you’re nursing a sore head thanks to the plethora of NYE events that took place, or maybe you’re patting yourself on the back because you have managed to achieve at least one of your New Year’s resolutions. Either way, we’ve got you covered. Here are our 5 best “weekend picks” to help ease you into the New Year.
1. Take a stroll at Kings Cross Organic Food Market
Held every Saturday morning, Kings Cross Organic Food & Farmers Market is a great place to take a head-clearing walk thanks to the amazing selection of goods on offer. From fruit & veg, coffee, bread, cheese, plants, juices and bacon and egg rolls, Kings Cross Organic Food Markets are certainly worth a browse.
Where: Fitroy Gardens, Elizabeth Street, Kings Cross.
2. Dance to Julio Bashmore at Goodgod
In case you haven’t done enough partying just yet, house legend Julio Bashmore will be carving up Goodgod’s Danceteria tonight. (Jan 4th 2014). Supported by Lancelot and Slowblow, this is going to be one of those gigs where you say “I wish I was there”. Tickets.
3. Drink at The Oxford Tavern
Recently refurbished The Oxford Tavern is currently “where it is at”. If you’re yet to visit then we suggest you do. The one time bikie owned, stripper bar has been revamped by the same masterminds behind popular watering holes like the Norfolk and The Forresters, the new improved tavern is... fantastic… for drinks, food or a lonely reminisce, it’s got it all. Be sure to try ‘The Swinging Tit’ (it’s a shooter).
Where: New Canterbury Rd, Petersham
What: Beverages / Food
4. Visit a secret beach
Why go to a normal beach when you can go to a secret beach? (No it’s not The Beach, we wouldn’t send you there.) Sounds enticing doesn’t it… Make your way over to Milk Beach for picturesque views of the harbour and just a spill of white sand sinking into candy blue shallows. Access via Strickland House 52 Vaucluse Rd, Vaucluse. Bus route 325 from Hyde Park to Strickland House. Parking limited.
5. Grab a coffee at The Velvet Garage
Recently opened The Velvet Garage is a converted warehouse come café. At this hidden gem you will find great coffee (Little Marionette), a menu with plenty of tasty options (including vegan) and friendly staff. When you’ve finished be sure to drop by the notorious May Lane to peruse some fresh graffiti.
Where: 3 Applebee St, St Peters (5 minutes from St Peter’s Station)
