What's on around town

• What’s the most surprising move you can make when your audience is used to zany, hoppy beers with a lot of going on? For Young Henry’s, it was making a line of normal beers. Its new Classic beer range debuted last week and features traditional flavours such as a classic lager, a middie, and a session-ready xpa.

• Hey Chu on Castlereagh Street is turning one in a couple of weeks, so to celebrate it's roping in Lana head chef Alex Wong for the first of its "chef’s series" collabs. His menu will run on April 11 and 18. Book in here.

• Jim Beam is hosting a rooftop session at Coogee Pavilion this Saturday April 6 to celebrate the final day of daylight savings. Starring a DJ set by Cosmo’s Midnight. Entry is free, so it’s first-in, best-dressed.

• Secolo Balmain is throwing a cheese degustation next Thursday on April 11, hosted by cheese expert Ramona Bergamaschi. There'll be all the gorgonzola and aged pecorino you can shake a cheese knife at, alongside paired meals by head chef Mattia Senesi.

• Bondi-based apparel brand Club Club has just collaborated with its fave Bondi coffe spot Blackwood. These oat-hued caps are a tribute to the most Bondi of coffee orders: the oat cappuccino.

• Chef Big Sam Young is throwing a pop-up dinner at Bouillon L'Entrecôte. We caught up with him earlier this week to get his favourite places to eat in Sydney.

What we covered this week

• Zendaya spent last weekend in Sydney – and had a quintessentially Sydney weekend. We recapped her eating and shopping.

• Vic's Meat, one of Sydney's best butchers, opened its first north-of-the-bridge outpost in Chatswood Chase. Head over to check out "the future of meat retailing."

• Earlwood's got a new simple sanga shop, Ol' Mates. You'll find some new-school sandwiches there, with some quite old-school sandwiches.

• One of Sydney's best yakitori spots has moved into some new digs. Yurippi's new location is three storeys of excellent Japanese drinking and dining, from the team behind Haymarket's Nakano Darling.

MLK is a new West and Central Asian deli with Uzbek chicken sangas, Afghan lamb kofta rolls, and some excellent brekkie brisket rolls. Go find this cute little cafe in Surry Hills.
