The workshop runs for two hours, starting with an art and design appreciation segment, the class also shows technique demonstrations, a mystery box challenge (step back Masterchef), and a photography session (#fortheinsta).

Trendy city location? Check. Shopping lit with fairy lights? Also check. Dessert paradise? DING DING DING! Sydney’s tastiest food-related night markets are back, this time sporting a really sweet theme (pun intended, apologies for pun extended). And everything is wholefood, so it’s like healthy dessert, or something. Wander the beautiful Grounds of Alexandria while sipping on mulled wine (because it’s winter yo), check out the dessert demos, and feel better about stuffing your face by listening to some inspirational health talks. The markets also have a health inspired BBQ and juice bar, free special edition GoodnessMe Boxes for patrons, and something called a smoothie bike: we have no idea what that is but it’s damn intriguing.

People of Sydney, it’s time to cultivate all those hours of your childhood and put your Simpsons knowledge to good use. The Shakespeare Hotel might sound like it’s made for the likes of Romeo or Juliet, but this Thursday it will be playing host to a very different type of clientele. The night is free but tables go fast so it’s a good idea to sort out your group early and book in for it. It’s time to flex those pop-culture muscles and show that you are so smart! S-M-R-T!

There will be big screen gaming, awesome nostalgia sets from DJ duo, Team Rocket, and you’ll have the opportunity to meet your childhood idols in the flesh. This is a one off event lasting only one night so get on it!
