If you’re in the mood for even more culture then why not rock out with indie band Belle and Sebastian? It’s all here in our Weekender!
Looking for the perfect way to spend a Sunday? Why not pop over to Grana’s street party in Sheung Wan? We love Grana’s affordable, high quality clothing (especially the gorgeous silk tanks!) so we were over the moon to hear about their new pop-up shop on Po Yan Street, open until 22 February from 10am to 8pm daily. This weekend, help Grana celebrate the 30-day pop-up in style by chowing down on some delicious burgers from The Butchers Club (they’ll be arriving at 12pm – just in time for lunch!) and chilling out in the neighbourhood. This is a great chance to get up close and personal with Grana’s fine fabrics and try on their latest collection of wardrobe essentials as you meet and mingle with the creative community of Sheung Wan. And if you can’t make it, then you can always shop online for these goodies! See you there Sassy girls…
When: Sunday, 8 February, 12-6pm
Where: 6 Po Yan Street, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong
How much: Free to attend the street party! Burgers will cost from $150-$180 and Grana clothing ranges from $94-$350.

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and all we want to do is sit at home and eat chocolate! If you’re looking to switch it up and improve your dating game, why not check out The Flying Winemaker’s Top12 Tasting to help you get over your first date nerves. Choosing the wine at the start of your date can make or break the rest of the evening, so Eddie McDougall (the Flying Winemaker himself!) will be on hand to school you. We had such a great time at our internal Tongue Explorer event, so we’re sure you’ll have a good time with Eddie too!
