DILDO RACING AT YOUNG & FRISKY (WOW…..This is a real thing!)

EVERY FRIDAY NIGHT AT 9PM

I bet you can’t say you’ve ever won a dildo race? Or… perhaps don’t answer that.

This little event at Young & Frisky in Gungahlin is sure to kick off your Friday night with a good laugh! $5 basics from 9pm will likely help too.

CAPITAL REGION TRUFFLE FESTIVAL

CONTINUES THROUGHOUT AUGUST

Have you ever really given Truffles a red hot go? They’ve got an extremely strong flavour and scent, loved by many and so much so that there is around 1-3 events happening throughout the month of August still, to celebrate this black odd shaped delicacy.

Join one of our top restaurants for an exclusive degustation dinner with matched wines, or pop into one of our many eateries to try the special Truffle dish on the menu.
