Ambushed [in a good way].

The Ambush Gallery have really got it going on.. All their digits are on the pulse. I recall going to their shows in Waterloo years ago and look at them now. Amazing! Nice one, guys.

They housed a sugar festival and the opening of a world class stencil exhibition last weekend. Yes, we’re a tad tardy on the diary entry however we blame the hangover from the mega dizzying sugar rush mokay? And it was worth it by the way.

Admittedly a little excited, we skipped breakfast in anticipation of all the offerings at the Sweetfest event that was part of the Good Food Month. Upon arrival we celebrated with a glass of sparking from Redbank in hand, wandering and exploring what was on offer.

We eventually found ourselves tucked in the corner scoffing sweets, sipping bubbles and allowing the go-go-gadget-arm to extend out to the stalls to bring back more. Incidentally, did anyone have the s’mores from Andy Bowdy Pastry [FYI you guys need either a hug or a smack as these were to die for!]. These were a ‘high’light.

Our favourite masterclass was from Alistair Wise from Sweet Envy in Hobart [we love Hobart!]. He’s highly entertaining and super talented! And he’s a little evil… He created a gutter trash sundae that was 2.4m long. My teeth almost fell out looking at it. Suffice to say they stayed put and it was a taste sensation. The crescendo was the fantastically fizzy champagne fountain spider experience! This guy knows how to have fun.

So I discovered that sparkling wine and sugar make for an interesting burst of unexpected energy. Admittedly I was a little tongue tied from the rush however eager to hop, skip and bounce across the living mall to the Stencil Art Prize.

This exhibition is in its seventh year and features 92 artists from 21 countries. There are some wonderful pieces. Make sure you check it out before it wraps up this Friday, 30 October. Our pick? Robin Williams of course. We miss you, oh talented creature.

Love this city!

On your bike!

Give the 4 wheeler a swift bumsteer and opt for the 2-wheeled kind. Not only are you hugging the planet, you’re giving your heart one too.

The Sydney Rides Festival commences this Saturday and we think it’s a wheelie great way to kick start your tyred heart and get into a new routine.

There are 21 days of fantastic activities beginning at Sydney Park. For the early bird yoga bunnies there are morning sessions or opt to embrace your inner BMX bandit Nicole Kidman stylee in the BMX arena. There’s a super-cross track, mountain boarding, an edible garden, parkour workshops, rock climbing wall, the Taronga zoo-mobile and food stalls.

Throughout the rest of the festival there are Sydney suit rides, National Ride2work day, pop up bars, movie nights, and more. And there’s a party on the final night in the heart of the city too. It’s gearing up to be a goodie!

On a side note, let’s face it, Sydney’s CBD is about to be on the feral side. With the closures on George Street looming, we think this is going to be a more desirable way to get your tails to work quicker, cleaner and healthier. It’s a win, win all round.

So rimember to borrow a bike or dust yours off, spokey dokey it up, bling it with a bell, tie on some streamers and get involved! Toot toot!

Dad jokes aside it’s gearing up to be a forking spoketacular event. [okay I’ll stop now as you can’t handle it!!!].
