SILY Xmas Markets
Make last-minute Christmas shopping less stressful with a cocktail in one hand
This Saturday, head down to CBD laneway bar Since I Left You for a Christmas market that’s moonlighting as a party. From 3pm, the carriageway and courtyard will be lined with stalls selling gifts and stocking stuffers that’ll have you ready for office Kris Kringle by Monday.
To sweeten the deal, they’ll be serving festive cocktails like summer mulled wine, boozy eggnog and Christmas punch alongside ‘Boxing Day’ toasties made with ham and turkey that’ll inspire your own use of leftovers in a few weeks time.
They’re even bringing in DJs, with Jerome Fandor playing soul-infused versions of Christmas classics before the Post Pluto Intergalactic Groove Committee take over, moving the evening along with hip hop, funk and disco beats.
Entry is a gold coin, with all proceeds going to Mission Australia.
When: Saturday 16th December, 3pm
