The Tailgate Experience is a new pre-game destination for Sydney Cricket Ground events. Borrowing the best parts of a beloved American pastime, the pop up bar aims to create a more social atmosphere around Australian sport. Finals footy is just around the corner and this is the best way to prepare for battle.
Not commonly associated with edibles worth being excited about, the southern CBD neighbourhood of Ultimo is coming into its own, rapidly challenging nearby Chinatown with corner coffee haunts and humble little cafes. These are two of the best locations to find breakfast gurus whipping up the tastiest coffee and nibbles.
ReverseGarbage has a new shopfront in the heart of Redfern, ReConsidered. The shop space aims to inspire customers to see value and function in materials which have been thrown to the wayside. A great place to find affordable interior décor and furnishings, sustainable art works and a range of other curiosities.
Launched earlier this year, the new outlet sits along Redfern’s Regent Street. Tangled between various op-shops ReConsidered is confident that its processes are unique. All products on display have been up-cycled by Reverse Garbage’s ReStore and ReCreate Team. This creative bunch of artists, educators and designers are committed to the organisation’s mission ‘to practice reuse and work exclusively with only reuse materials’. From chair’s refurbished with hessian coffee bags, to antique crockery, you’ll find something new every time you visit.
Once a month there’s exhibitions of artworks and art installations made by local designers to promote their work and the use of recycled materials to create art.
Where: 167 Regent Street, Redfern
When: Tuesday – Saturday (10am to 5pm)
If you’re not looking for the finished product, there’s plenty of inspiration at the ReverseGarbage Warehouse. Located in Marrackville, donations of ‘garbage’ are made available to the general public for creative use, or reuse.
There’s plenty to choose from as Reverse Garbage continues to collect tonnes of valuable materials including off-cuts, over-runs, art & craft materials, stage props, knickknacks, furniture and other items. 40 years of establishment has led to contributions from hundreds of supporting commercial and industrial businesses, as well as the generosity of the local community.
Where: 8/142 Addison Road Marrickville
When: Monday – Saturday ( 9am to 5pm) Sundays (10am to 4pm)
