The beginning of July means we’re well and truly into summer in the 852! Just as well there are a whole host of amazing parties this weekend celebrating just that as well as U.S.A.’s Independence Day. Cool down at The Pulse’s water carnival or Jack Wills’ pool party. Or if you’re in the mood for a good old-fashioned American BBQ, head to Stone Nullah Tavern or Boomshack… it’s all here in our Weekender!
Slip, slap, slop
We all love a good day at the beach and the chance to top-up our tans never goes amiss! If you’re looking to go beyond rolling over every half an hour, head to Repulse Bay for a day of sunshine and carnival fun. Every Saturday through to the end of the month, The Pulse is hosting their Endless Summer Water Carnival… What’s better than a day of live music, photo booths and water sports? Not much unless you pair it with delicious food from 22 Ships, Little Bao and Limewood among others. Cool off with an ice lolly from Nice Pops before hitting the giant slip and slide…

We’re bringing back this fantastic afternoon tea deal, mainly because we’re a little bit selfish and are dying to go back. If you’re familiar with Sift’s cupcakes and their founder That Girl Jennifer Cheung, then you’ll love their afternoon tea. We reviewed it (for completely professional purposes, of course) and fell a little bit in love. You’ll be able to snag 30% off for a tea set for two at just $210, which includes savoury goodies, scones, homemade macarons, tea or coffee and of course a couple of their mini cupcakes. There’s a reason why they’re one of our favourite bakeries after all.
If you’re looking to book in for your next girly goss date, all you need to do is purchase this deal, head over to the Sift Dessert Bar on Graham Street for your tea set and flash your Sassy coupon code upon payment. As a wise person once said: treat yo’ self.
