Denizen agenda: Three things to have on your radar for the coming weekend

With the weekend fast approaching, what better time than now to think about how best to fill our days? Here, we round up three exciting events that cover shopping, food and culture, and will result in a well-rounded weekend, and time well spent.

Shop the Faradays Sale

Luxury fashion haven Faradays is set to kick off its highly-anticipated Biannual Sale this Friday, offering a wide variety of its coveted designer pieces at very appealing discounts.

Eat burgers at the Baby G pop-up

Renowned for slinging some of the best burgers in town, famous pop-up Baby G is landing at East Street Hall tomorrow night (Friday) presenting what they have dubbed the ‘Authentic American.’ A pop-up that is running this Friday and next Friday only, we recommend getting in quick to secure one of Baby G’s highly sought-after, signature smash burgers. This is only on from 5pm until sold out, and we’re predicting that it will be very popular…

Catch a performance of Sydney Theatre Company’s The Picture of Dorian Gray

The iconic Sydney Theatre Company is bringing its exhilarating rendition of The Picture of Dorian Gray to Auckland, hot on the heels of a sold-out season in Australia. Hailed as a “dizzyingly beautiful tour de force” (The Guardian), this audacious reimagining of Wilde’s century-old fable of beauty (and a deal with the devil) sees one actor plating 26 characters, and marries traditional theatre with cutting-edge design and astonishing love video in a spectacular and multi-faceted performance. Kicking off at the Aotea Centre from this Saturday (the 18th of March) and running every night until next Saturday (the 25th of March) this is one you really don’t want to miss. Tickets available here.
