A Long Lunch with Moo Brew and Moorilla Wines

The Sackville Hotel is hosting a long winter lunch matched with the taste of Tassie, care of three craft brews from Moo Brew and three wines from Moorilla Wines.    The lunch is priced at $60 a head, and includes roasted beets with baby watercress and feta as a starter, followed by salt and pepper bugs with kimchi cucumbers and wasabi mayo. Your main will star a grass-fed beef tenderloin with seasonal vegetable sides and for dessert a chocolate fudge brownie should take care of any lingering sugar cravings.   This lunchtime bounty will be accompanied by a pilsner, hefeweizen and dark ale from Moo Brew, alongside a sparkling riesling, sauvignon blanc and a pinot noir from Moorilla.    This is the sort of event it pays to arrive hungry for, and with four courses and matched beverages included in the ticket price, it's also great value for an indulgent afternoon.

Laugh Your Pants Off at The Star Event Centre

Bears hibernate in winter but Sydneysiders would be mad to do the same. Especially when there’s a cracking night of some of Australia’s funniest and most famous comedians on at The Star Event Centre – part of The Star's campaign to brighten up the cold season in Sydney.  Laugh Your Pants Off is two hours of guaranteed hilarity that will star Akmal Saleh (recently of I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out Here); Merrick Watts (legend of radio, TV and the comedy stage); Tom Gleeson (always a hoot on The Weekly with Charlie Pickering); and the acerbic Nazeem Hussain (Legally Brown). They’ll be joined by the inimitable Bev Killick (who brought the house down at Time Out’s recent Melbourne Pub Awards); dry charmer Katie Burch (National Raw Comedy runner-up); Dave Eastgate (A Moody Christmas); and veteran laughmeister Steve Allison. As an added incentive all ticket holders are entitled to a 15 per cent discount at Harvest Buffet, the all-you-can eat buffet at The Star featuring top seafood, roasts, soups, Italian, Indian and Chinese food as well as a tempting range of desserts and cheeses. Because hey, no one likes to laugh it up on an empty stomach. The Star Event Centre is up on Level 3 of The Star at 80 Pyrmont Street, Pyrmont. Find out more about The Star’s winter attractions.
