This weekend is all about getting rid of those back-to-work blues. Whether you turn to some retail therapy, indulge in some sinfully good food, or win a date with one of Hong Kong’s hottest hunks, we’ve got you covered in our Weekender…
Oh my G.O.D.
We all know and love the seriously cool Hong Kong designs from G.O.D., and here at Sassy we’re always popping into their various stores on the look out for some unique buys. If, like us, you can’t get enough of these quintessentially Hong Kong products, then you can’t miss out on their epic clearance sale at Horizon Plaza. That’s right, they’re moving out of Ap Lei Chau and need to get rid of all furniture and stock! Keep your eyes peeled for one-off pieces and vintage items that are being shifted out of the warehouse… there are some hidden treasures that you’ll be able to get for a steal! We spy a selection of super stylish stools like this one here, all at bargain prices. And by bargain, we mean at 60% off! Don’t miss your chance to bag some fabulous G.O.D. goodies at a fraction of the usual cost… and don’t forget to keep checking their online catalogue for new additions. See you there!
When: Happening now at their store! It’s open from 10am-7pm and the sale goes on until stock clears!
Where: G.O.D., 4/F, Horizon Plaza, 2 Lee Wing Street, Ap Lei Chau, Aberdeen, Hong Kong
How much: Everything is 60% off (except consignment items)… now that’s what we call a bargain! See here for all sale products.
Incase you haven’t heard of Sugo Sushi, this funky little sushi joint offers a unique take on our favourite Japanese grub, with rolls like the No Way Jose – a beef taco in a roll! Head on down to their Summer Sushi-Sake pop up shop at Location in Soho to enjoy a free flow of selected sushi rolls, sake from JBrewhouse.com and wine. The night also includes an interactive sushi making demo, live music and a prize draw.

Seven delicious sins
Descend into darkness at Bloom’s one night dining event, I AM FORBIDDEN, a 7-course meal based on the seven deadly sins. With courses such as ‘gluttony’; goat cheese beignet and crispy ham, or ‘pride’; a chocolate pillar, we can’t wait to indulge in these wickedly delicious dishes! This is sure to be a very special one-off event, so if it sounds like an evening that you’d like to be a part of, snap up tickets ASAP.

Going once… going twice… sold!
Get ready, ladies! This weekend, some of Hong Kong’s hottest men will be up for grabs in a Bachelor Auction. The highest bidder will win a date with one of the lovely fellas, so start saving up and prepare for a bidding war! On top of the bachelors, some irresistible prizes will also be auctioned off. Get in on the action for the chance to win a trip to Bali, an 8-day tour of India, or a 2-night vacation in Koh Samui, Phuket or Boracay. And just in case you needed more convincing to go on a date with a handsome man, all money raised from the auction will be donated to St Rita Orphanage and Gawad Kalinga! It’s all part of the work from the awesome ladies of The Kilimanjaro 6, who will be climbing this epic mountain while helping the community along the way. Find out more here!
When: 22 August, 7-10pm
