We know that Canberra winter sucks balls. It’s already dark when you leave work and all you want to do of an evening is curl up at home with a big bowl of pasta. As appealing as that scenario is, if you can brave a mid winter night for a few hours, we know of a couple things that will make it worth your while.
Our friends the Lonsdale Street Traders are throwing a shopping night on Thursday 20 July and everyone is invited. There will be complimentary sparkling and yummy goodies to eat, freshly roasted chestnuts, entertainment by Passion and Purpose Academy, and of course late night shopping at all your favourite Ori Building boutiques.
Also, the Eat Blood Bones team will be taking over the kitchen at Barrio for the evening, creating Po’ Boy Sandwich’s. You can then head over to Frugii for a delicious dessert.
Then on Friday 21 July, you can do it all again at the Christmas in July shopping event at Trove, where you will be able to wander through the store while enjoying a glass of mulled or sparkling wine and noshing on gingerbread and sugar cookies. Many of the talented designers and artists who sell their wares in the store will be on hand for a chat, plus there are prizes and goodies to be won on the night!
See braving a winters night is not so bad.
