Hong Kong is the city that never sleeps, and this weekend will prove that to be true with a host of super cool parties going on around town! From mysterious brunch spots to burritos on the block, there’s plenty to get you in the spirit for summer. It’s all in this week’s Weekender…
Who made my clothes?
There’s no denying that we love fashion here at Sassy, which is why we are proud to support the Fashion Revolution! If you follow us on Instagram, you’ll have seen images of us asking ‘who made our clothes?’. More thought needs to go into who actually makes our clothes, with the aim of changing and preventing the social and environmental catastrophes in our fashion supply chain. Get involved by taking a photo of your clothes inside out, posting them up using the hashtags #fashrev and #whomademyclothes and tagging the brand you’re wearing.
When: Friday, 24 April
If you’re keen to explore a different area of Hong Kong then why not head over to the Easy Pact Creative Precinct in Kwun Tong? Bitetone and Vero Concept will be hosting ‘Gan Bei on a Rooftop’ with a completely unique food and wine pairing. Munch on Cantonese Siu Mei and Salty Egg as you sip on some vino and enjoy the live music performance by multi-instrumentalist Hakgwai. There will also be a DJ set by Paul Yip and local art on display. This is definitely something to check out if you’re looking for something different to do!
When: Saturday, 25 April, 7.30-10pm
Where: Easypack Rooftop, 140 Wai Yip Street, Kwun Tong, Kowloon, Hong Kong
How much: $350 – RSVP here. And hurry, as tickets are nearly sold out!
Burritos on the Block
Yep, they’re at it again! Burrito-loving babes should stop by Little Burro’s fourth block party. Known for chilled vibes and a great community spirit, these block parties are perfect for hanging out with a group of buddies and enjoying a margarita (or two). Of course, Little Burro will be serving up their delicious array of Mexican fare along with Nice Pops, who will be providing boozy lollies and Homie Cookies, who will satisfy your sweet-tooth. Expect great tunes from DJs, live art from Print House and good times all round!
When: Saturday, 25 April, 12-6pm
Where: Little Burro, 1 Upper Station Street, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong
How much: Free to attend but don’t forget to bring cash for booze and food.

This isn’t just another weekend brunch, this is a brunch with a punch!
