Forage the Rocks And Find These 5 Cool Pop-Ups This August

Cool Sh*t, Events, Festivals, Guide, Sydney / 26 July 2022

Foodies and fun-lovers assemble, this August The Rocks is launching Forage The Rocks – a month-long dining campaign which will see a host of exciting new offers and events including a foodie-themed laneway cinema. 

Forage The Rocks

1. The Rocks Laneway Cinema 

Laneway Cinema is hosting a foodie-themed programme every Wednesday throughout August. Not only will the outdoor laneway be adorned with cosy beanbags and heaters for peak winter snuggliness, movie goers will also be able to choose from a range of specially curated themed drinks and dishes from local pop-up vendors to devour whilst they enjoy the film. The movie line-up is built entirely around our favourite thing, food! Think Willy Wonka, Chef, and Waiters to name a few. To check out the full line-up, head here.   

2. Sunday ‘Doga’ Session With Your Furry Friend

With International Dog Day falling on August 26th, guests are encouraged to let their furry friends in on the action throughout the month. Puppers are invited to BYO (bring your owner) to a Sunday yoga sesh hosted by Hot Dog Yoga for a fun and silly class to put the play back into your yoga practice. Book here to secure your spot. After you’ve worked up a sweat, head to Tea Cosy where they’ll be pouring up free Puppercino’s all month long.

Learn how to make sushi from scratch, from the people that do it best. Saké is set to host a two-part Sushi Masterclass followed by an exclusive banquet in the private dining room. Each masterclass is limited to just 12 guests allowing a once-in-lifetime opportunity for some one-on-one with Saké’s skilful master chefs. You can make a booking here or check out the full programme of masterclasses here including; ‘The Seven Seasons Of Foraging’ at recently opened Daintree Sydney; ‘Rum Returns To The Rocks Masterclass’ at The Keel; and a ‘Grape vs Grain Masterclass’ at Endeavour Taprooms.  

4. Seadrift Distillery 0% Bar 

If Dry July has set the precedent for a long-term change, be sure to head to George Street where Seadrift Distillery will be setting up a limited-time bar showcasing their sippable selection of non-alcoholic spirits, all served up in a delightfully haze-free signature mocktail list. Be amongst the first 20 visitors on the opening day of Wednesday, 3 August from 3pm and receive a free can of Seadrift ‘n tonic to try out.
