Burgers and cocktails for a tenner
Surry Hills pub Harry’s has treated our wallets by permanently dropping the prices of its signature burgers and classic cocktails to just $10 each. That means $10 Wagyu, chicken and eggplant burgers, and $10 Margaritas, Negronis and Aperol Spritzes, all day every day. It’s also launched a menu of taquitos – hand-rolled, lightly fried tacos filled with barbacoa beef, ancho chicken or chipotle adobo sweet potato. hotelharry.com.au

A spooky Sheaf circus
Stalwart Double Bay pub the Golden Sheaf is throwing a spooky Halloween party this Friday and Saturday, October 30 and 31. Fire burlesque dancers, glass-ball jugglers and creepy clowns will roam the venue, and three special cocktails have been brewed for the occasion. Visit for a Fairy Floss Martini, Popcorn Paloma and Smoked-Orange Old Fashioned (or a deep-fried Mars Bar). The event is free to enter, but bookings are recommended. Patrons must be seated. From 6pm to 9pm. thegoldensheaf.com.au/carnevil

Get rummy
The Kings Cross Hotel rooftop has been taken over by a tiki-inspired rum shack, thanks to a collaboration with Bacardi. It’ll be open until November 28, with tiki-inspired drinks including a cocktail that resembles a smoking volcano, a Pandan Colada, and a Tonka Old Fashioned. An accompanying menu includes poke bowls, pork Cubano sandwiches and Bacardi Spiced Rum chicken wings. The bar’s open from Thursday to Saturday, from 5pm until late, and Sundays from 12pm until late. Bookings are recommended. kingscrosshotel.com.au
