Wisdom of AI Light | July 13-July 31
Lose yourself in the Wisdom of AI Light this weekend – a multisensory artificial intelligence exhibition that draws inspiration from the past, present and future, created by Istanbul-based Ouchhh Studio. Billions of brushstrokes from renaissance artists dance across lit-up screens in the immersive work, set against the soundtrack of classical composer Ludovico Einaudi. Tickets retail between $32-$35, with sessions running every 45 minutes from 11am Tuesday to Sunday.
Not so Silent Night | July 23
Whip out your favourite ugly Christmas jumper at the Not So Silent Night party taking over the Marion Hotel this Saturday, July 23. Sip on spiked Haighs hot chocolate, pavlova pina coladas and gingerbread martinis before letting loose on the dance floor, with live musicians and a DJ soundtracking the Christmas in July fun. Dress in your festive best for the chance to win a prize, too! The Not So Silent Night party is free to attend, with the festive fun kicking off at 8pm.
Good Gilbert x Secret Pizza Club | July 24
This Sunday, a love affair between two of our favourite things – pizza and wine – is coming to neighbourhood wine bar, Good Gilbert. The weekend will see Secret Pizza Club (SPC) and its portable pizza oven roll up to the Goodwood Road haunt, Salopian Inn head chef Jimmy Toone in tow. SPC is Toone’s passion project, and the dream collaboration will see him slinging slices of pizza alongside glasses of seriously good wine. The Sunday session kicks off at 4pm, running until the pizza and wine run out.
Christmas in July Gin Masterclass | July 24
Gilbert Street’s bootleg distillers, Prohibition Liquor Co, are spicing up your Sunday with notes of nutmeg and cinnamon at their Christmas in July gin masterclass. Escape the cold and settle in for a guided flight featuring the lauded (and sold out) 2021 Christmas Gin and an in-depth discussion of flavour profiles, pairings and distilling processes. Afterwards, indulge in a turkey, brie and cranberry toasted sandwich – the best bits of Christmas dinner rolled into one. Tickets cost $45 and are available online.
Winter Session at Paxton Wines | July 24
Indulge in a winter wine time this Sunday, set against the frosty backdrop of the McLaren Vale. Paxton Wine is moving their usual sunny sessions to a cosy indoor setting in their pavilion. Think mugs brimming with mulled wine, live acoustic tunes and piping hot pizza fresh from the Doughballs food truck. Pooches are welcome to the free family-friendly event, provided they’re on a leash. BYO plastic glassware and mugs.
Bonus: Soup Kitchen at East End Cellars | Each Thursday until August 18
While this event isn’t on the weekend, we think it’s a worthy one to pencil into your calendars. The annual Winter Soup Kitchen at East End Cellars has returned, raising vital funds for Catherine House and the Hutt Street Centre each Thursday afternoon. Adelaide’s most beloved chefs are teaming up to serve soup for a good cause inside the east-end wine bar. This coming Thursday will see Sharon Romeo and David Swain (Fino Vino) join forces in the kitchen, with all proceeds donated directly to assist those experiencing homelessness.
