Whether your idea of a good time involves making personalised Bloody Mary's to your exact specifications over brunch, eating five-courses of salumi and cheese or dedicating a whole nigth to sparkling wine, there's definitely a weekly event at the Festival of the Senses to suit your particular style of spring-time indulgence.
Spend your weekends in the lush surrounds of the Gazebo in Potts Point and really get a run-up with their European brunch menu, which tastes best when paired with one of the five house Bloody Marys. Of course if you know what you like in a savoury cocktail, you can also take the DIY approach and design your own.
Deatils: Sat, Sun Sep 2-Oct 3, 10am-2pm.
Gather your claw-busting crew and don your bibs at Manly Wine who will be hosting their weekly crab specials. You can order up a plate of tender, juicy blue swimmer crabs; do battle with spanner crab legs or go the whole hog and order up a mud crab from the tank.
Details: Sundays, Sep 2-Oct 3.

Details: Sep 2-Oct 3, $45pp.
Sometimes there's a lot more catching up to be done than one glass of wine can cover. That's when you need to book a seat at the Winery's Bottomless Bellinis Ladies Lunch where you can indulge in a long lunch over three hours with three courses and a whole lot of sparkling wine.
