Half price, full joy
Subterranean CBD bar Employees Only’s fortune teller must be working overtime – they clearly predicted how much we’d love a good deal this month. The bar is offering 50 per cent off all food (except the 1.3-kilogram tomahawk steak) and drink every Wednesday and Thursday from 5pm to 6pm, until March 31. You could get 700 grams of truffle lobster mornay for $100, baked camembert with truffle honey for $10 or the bar’s take on a Manhattan for $12, with a maximum discount of $100 per person.

Definitely Sammy
Maybe Sammy – the CBD bar deemed 11th best on the World’s 50 Best Bars list last year – has launched a new range of bottled cocktails. Unlike its previous at-home line, which bottled cocktails found at the bar, these have been created specifically for at-home imbibing; the team has been working on the trio since 2019. There’s a classic Negroni lifted with jasmine, a chamomile-infused Martini, and a Eucalyptus Gimlet made with tequila, mango, eucalyptus and grapefruit bitters. Single serves (100 millilitres) will set you back $18, or $60 for three, and 500-millilitre bottles are $69. maybesammycocktails.com

Latin laneway jams
Mexican joint Esteban is bringing the party to its CBD laneway, with a new live-music and performance series running every Thursday, Friday and Saturday for the next three months. Samba bands, tango dancers, salsa performers, a rumba and funk trio and more will take over the alley as diners enjoy dishes inspired by Mexican street food. The rhythms start at 6.30pm. estebanrestaurant.com.au

Pretty enough
Want a staggering stat? Thirty per cent of the world’s farmland is used to produce food that will never be eaten. Sydney start-up Good & Fugly is doing its bit to make a dent in that number by delivering boxes of superficially offbeat – but delicious – fruit and veg to Sydney homes. The seasonal boxes come in two sizes: a larger box for $59 and a smaller one for $39. What you get will change with every delivery, but the team always does its best to include staples such as potatoes, onions and leafy greens in each box. goodandfugly.com.au
