Bar Luca and Young Henrys join forces

When one of Sydney's best burger joints collaborates with a rock'n'roll beer juggernaut, you know you're in for a good time. And that's exactly what Young Henrys and Bar Luca will be doing for a whole week – a week packed full of burgers, beers and even some love song dedications.  To kick off the celebrations, Bar Luca will be doing a burger pop-up at Young Henrys brewery in Newtown on Sunday February 12. They'll be doing a one-off burger, created especially for the kickass brewers, dubbed the Young Henry the Third. It'll see the much loved juicy BL patty sandwiched in with American cheese, bacon jam, YH Real Ale spiked cheese sauce, YH Natural Lager fried onions and Cloudy Cider braised pulled pork. As they were the victors of Time Out's Battle of the Burger, you know this is going to be a burger you want to try. Then they'll be switching places – Young Henrys will join Bar Luca for a week-long residence at the CBD burger bar, as well as BL Burgers on Oxford Street and the Beach Road Hotel in Bondi. On Valentine’s Day they'll be dong special 'Lovers and Loners' meal deals, beer specials and burger-love-song-dedications, and throughout the rest of the week you can enjoy plenty more Young Henrys brews and burgers.  Find out more about Young Henrys and Bar Luca's pop-up.

Right now Beer DeLuxe is heralding the arrival of Hawthorn Brewing Company’s fine Pale Ale, Amber Ale, Pilsner, Witbier, IPA and Golden Ale. Having lived overseas for many years, the team at Hawthorn Brewing tasted first hand the full diversity that exists throughout the beer world. Returning home to Hawthorn, Melbourne, they launched their first brew in 2008 and haven’t looked back. It’s just a sample of the amber goodness to be enjoyed at Beer DeLuxe all year round.

Alliance Française French Film Festival

Did you ever wonder why France’s film culture is so rich and varied and full of big-name stars? Simple: for every cinema ticket sold in France, whether for a local film or a Hollywood blockbuster, the state gets money to invest into French films.  The latest fruits of this vibrant industry screen in March, spanning comedy, biopic, drama, war stories, animation and romance. They include new movies from the Dardenne Brothers, Anne Fontaine and Bertrand Tavernier, featuring stars such as Isabelle Huppert, Daniel Auteuil, Omar Sy, Audrey Tautou and many, many more. Gender equality is especially strong in the French movie world, with 17 new movies from women directors. And here’s another drawcard: the festival is running a competition this year with prizes for attendees of a trip for two to France and a trip for two to New Caledonia. Here are Time Out’s 12 picks of movies to look out for. The Alliance Française French Film Festival is set to take place at Palace Norton Street, Palace Verona, Chauvel Cinema and Hayden Orpheum Picture Palace.
