Sydney Swans’ Dane Rampe wary of wounded Collingwood Magpies


Loading

Rampe, who made his return from a broken finger in last week’s defeat to Melbourne, will be key in quelling the influence of De Goey and former teammate Darcy Cameron, who has emerged as a key option in attack for Collingwood and kicked three goals against North.

Rampe will make a good fist of it – metaphorically, if not literally. The 30-year-old can’t quite fully clench his left hand yet, after undergoing surgery to repair the index finger he broke against Richmond in round three, but expects that flexion to return gradually over the coming weeks.

Having shattered his other hand last year in an injury that ended his season early, any hopes of a hand modelling career post-football are long gone for the Swans co-captain, who opted to go under the knife after being told he was risking severe arthritis later in his life if he didn’t fix it.

“We tossed up returning a week or two earlier but it wasn’t worth it,” he said. “The other thing is making a fist and getting my flexion back – if I didn’t get surgery I could only get it out to 45 degrees. It still is stuck there, but I’ll get that flexion back eventually.”

10 Great Mexican Restaurants In Sydney


There’s a lot to love about Sydney’s Mexican restaurants—from traditional taquerias to eateries where mod-Mexico shines like the salt crust on a margarita. We’ve braved the spiciest salsas, chili-est chilies and the most fabulous fajitas to compile this list of the 10 best.

So Cal, Neutral Bay

 

SoCal is most definitely southern Californian in both its vibe and cuisine. A beach-inspired fit-out and a bright, airy, leafy courtyard create the mood—then the food does the rest. The honest-to-goodness Cal-Mex offerings might include smoked brisket, delicate scallop ceviche, herby spiced black beans and a BBQ pork quesadilla. Six agave-based cocktails only add to the deliciousness.

This food truck has built a loyal following based on only three things: nachos, burritos and soft-shell tacos. But done very, very well. Fill your tacos with slow-roasted chipotle beef or pork cooked in citrus and guajillo chilli, and decide whether you’re a hot, extra hot or inferno type of person. Follow CM’s Instagram to find out where the truck is popping up next.

Uruguay meets Mexico at this cozy cafe-cum-restaurant serving up the best in Latin American home-cooking. A must-try is the sopa Azteca (tortilla soup), where fried tortilla strips are drenched in a rich, red chicken broth, topped with lime wedges and coriander. Equally delicious is the chivito al plato, the Uruguayan take on a steak sandwich, which features an assemblage of thin tender steak piled with everything from ham to fried eggs.

Located in The Eastern Hotel, this restaurant and rooftop bar features an inspired Mexican fit-out: think hand-painted tiles, religious iconography and Day of the Dead skeletons. El Topo’s chefs deliver mod-Mexican share plates such as fried plantain, roast crickets, scallop ceviche with strawberry salsa, coffee-marinated flank steak and a mushroom taco with pumpkin mole. 

The street food at Chica Bonita is well worth the trip on the ferry over to Manly. Like Bondi Junction’s El Topo, the decor is muchos Mexican—even the toilets are plastered in cut-outs from Mexican newspapers. The drinking/eating balance is pretty close to perfect here, with killer margaritas and great Mexican beers matched with heavenly tacos and delicious tortillas.

At its two Sydney locations, Dos Senoritas prides itself on serving simple, authentic Mexican dishes where flavour is key. While you’re nibbling on the complimentary corn chips and salsa, try to decide which taco is your poison: gringo style (flour), street style (corn) or Tex Mex (crispy). Oh, and save some room for the one-is-never-enough churros.

There’s plenty to love about this Glebe mainstay (including that fabulous name): from the lip-smacking margaritas and huge array of tequilas to the epic hot sauces. Prices are reasonable and servings are generous. Make sure you try the deep-fried Chimichanga burrito and queso fundido, a moreish gooey Mexican cheese dip served with crisp corn chips.   

Under the guidance of Dan Hong, one of Sydney’s brightest and boldest chefs, this Mexican joint at the Excelsior Hotel in Surry Hills is very hot property. You’ll need to get in early on a weekend to enjoy the menu inspired by LA taco trucks. You may even have to queue—but once you’re sipping on a jalapeno margarita or one of 25 varieties of tequila, it probably won’t matter too much.

There’s a subtlety about Méjico (pronounced ‘Meh-hee-ko’), both in the decor and the food offerings. It’s mod-Mexican executed beautifully: empanadas filled with beef cheek and bone marrow; tacos stuffed with baked king trout or smoked lentils; sweet corn ‘ribs’ served with agave mayo; chipotle- and beer-glazed pork ribs. And you won’t want to miss the signature guacamole—freshly smashed to order at your table.

Wood-fired dishes are the speciality in this pretty, white-washed eatery on busy Bondi Road (‘carbón’ is Spanish for charcoal). Charcoal grilling (parrilla) and a roasting box known as a caja china are what create all the great smoky flavours in dishes such as roasted lamb shoulder with Grandma’s mole and fire-roasted chicken with mango habanero salsa. If your tastes run a little simpler, the tacos are absolutely top-notch, too.

Sure, a few restrictions might still be in place this weekend—but there’s plenty to get out and do here in Sydney (and some awesome sunshine on the cards too). 

Headling your weekend are two live and free gigs—Seymour Nights at the Seymour Centre, and Surf Club Sundays at Redfern Surf Club. We’ve also found a super-special one-off seven-course brunch, a month-long foodie festival in full flight up on the Northern Beaches, an enormous antiques fair, and an illuminated night sculpture walk too. 

Remember to stay COVID safe, mask up and isolate if and when you need to. You can read more about this weekend’s restrictions here, and about NSW COVID case locations here.

Here are nine epic things to do in Sydney this weekend.

Friday 14 May

Listen To Local Artists And New Sounds At This Free Courtyard Concert Series 

Missing live music? The Seymour Centre’s new free concert series “Seymour Nights” is for you. Running on Fridays throughout May and June, the program will feature 10 live shows from some of Australia’s most exciting music talent. Kicking off this week is Newcastle-based multi-instrumentalist Tom Myers with a drum-heavy alternative rock mood that definitely feels a little like Silverchair, followed up by Fleetwood Mac-esque folk from The Heart Collectors.

Sunday 16 May

Tuck Into Nour X Maha’s Next Level 7-Course Brunch 

We know it’s not really a weekend without brunch—but if you’re looking to really (really) dial things up, you’ll want to hit Nour in Surry Hills this Sunday. Nour is one of our favourite brunch spots in Sydney, but this weekend they will be doing a special one-off seven-course brunch in partnership with Melbourne chef, Shane Delia of Maha. 

The one-off menu pays hommage to Delia and Nour executive chef Paul Farag’s Middle Eastern heritage, and on the sharing menu are things like whipped cod roe filled borek bun, with dill, and Yarra Valley salmon caviar (swoon!); a duck and pine manoush; and baharat spiced beef crackling, with ricotta, wagyu basturma, and shankleesh (drool). During your feast, you’ll be treated to music from rising star singer-songwriter Ellis Hall. The brunch is $79 per person and you can (and should) book here

Do Your Sunday Session At Surf Club Sundays—Redfern Surf Club’s New Free Live Music Party

Redfern Surf Club is a fun neighborhood bar that serves up Aussie craft beer, natural wine, tasty cocktails, and good vibes. The club is led by the owners and live music lovers Yannick Maslard (ex-Oxford Art Factory) and Jade New (ex-Future Musical Festival, Secret Sounds). In partnership with FBi Radio and Create NSW, these guys are intro’ing an all-new live music event called Surf Club Sundays, which will run every week until Sunday 13 June 13. Dipping into a wide range of sounds, it’ll be 100% free to attend too. 

“Having live music at the Surf Club has always been part of our long-term plan and feels really natural in the space,” says New. “The music community embraced us from the start, so we’re excited to get these shows happening now and in the future.”

This Sunday from 4pm, you’ll find 19-year-old pop prodigy MAY-A joined by Liyah Knight with silky tracks of sultry R&B, and Melbourne artist D’Arcy Spiller’s indie vocals. Here’s more good news for you all: 4pm – 6pm at Redfern Surf Club also happens to be “Mega Happy Hour” with the food specials at Redfern Surf Club. More info is here

Snag a $20 Ticket and Drink Up For Australian Cocktail Month

Now, a brand new initiative titled Australian Cocktail Month is here to help us hit our favourite bars again and help the industry get back on its feet.

For its inaugural edition, Australian Cocktail Month has partnered with 72 bars across Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, and Adelaide.

Qantas May Supermoon scenic flight sells out in 2 minutes


A Qantas one-off “flight to nowhere” has sold out in just two minutes – a record for the airline.

Earlier this week, Qantas announced a special flight to view the supermoon and lunar eclipse occurring on Wednesday, May 26 – giving passengers the best possible view of the event from a seat on their Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

But after just two-and-a-half minutes of online sales on Wednesday, all the tickets were snapped up.

Economy fares on the flight were $499, $899 for premium economy and $1499 for business class seat.

RELATED: Qantas launches supermoon scenic flight this month

The lucky passengers will take off from Sydney Airport and climb to a cruising altitude of 43,000 feet, well above any clouds and away from the city’s light pollution.

Qantas pilots have worked with the CSIRO to develop the optimal flight path over the Pacific Ocean to catch the supermoon in all its glory.

The flight will be piloted by Qantas’ 787 fleet technical manager, Captain Alex Passerini.

“That moon is 240,000 miles [384,000km] away but we’ll be about 12km closer to it, at about 40,000 feet,” he said.

“We’re working with the CSIRO to develop a flight plan that will give us the best viewing, making sure we get those times right for exactly when the lunar eclipse is going to be at its peak, so we can afford everyone on board the best possible view while that’s happening.

“We’ll be above the weather, getting that great view from the larger windows and not being subject to the light pollution in the Sydney area because that affects viewing.”

Supermoons occur when the moon comes slightly closer to the Earth. The event on May 26 will be the second and final supermoon we’ll see in 2021, following a so-called “pink” supermoon on April 27.

But it’s the addition of a lunar eclipse that makes this space event a rare double phenomenon.

The moon will be at its closest point at 11.50am AEST on May 26, coming within 357,311km of Earth.

The total lunar eclipse will occur between 9.11pm and 9.25pm AEST, when the moon is 357,462km from Earth.

The experience is part of a series of themed flights by Qantas to draw travellers back to the sky.

Marramarra Lodge Is The Dreamy New Luxury Stay 1-Hour From Sydney


The year is 2021 and we’re all deserving of a little bit of luxury.

Enter the Hawkesbury River’s new wilderness retreat, Marramarra Lodge. It’s the kind of place where you can kick back, soak up curated wines, spend an entire day lounging out at the in-house day spa, partake in daily sunset canapes, take a helicopter ride to the Hunter Valley, or even frolic along on an oyster expedition. If that’s not the dream, we don’t know what is.

Framed by the stunning Marramarra National Park, this newly-built luxury lodge is only accessible by boat from Mooney Mooney and Brooklyn and hits about the one-hour mark if you’re driving from Sydney. You’ll kind of feel like you’re on your very own private island at Marramarra—the property caters exclusively to a max of 28 guests and when you book a stay here, you can expect an all-inclusive approach so you won’t have to worry about a thing.

At Marramarra, you’re in for two different types of accommodation. The first is a Peninsula Tent, a river meets safari get-up that overlooks the water. The second is the Hawkesbury Bungalow, a minimalist cross-industrial lodging nestled deep into the bushland—and boy, is it giving.

If you can bring yourself to step out of the comfort of Marramarra’s digs, you’ll find Lyora, a day spa loaded with some seriously god-tier treatments like aromatherapy massages, hot stone massages, deep tissue massages, Sodashi skin therapies, mineral facials, and a whole heap more.

You’ll also be able to cop a number of add-ons if you’re keen to spruce up special occasions or just treat yourself like no one’s business. You can arrange private helicopter charters with private wine tastings in the Hunter Valley, opt for a local pearl farm tour, hit up a botanical gin distillery day trip, go bush foraging with a Dharug Elder, or go on a crabbing or oyster expedition like the adventurer you are.

Book a stay at Marramarra Lodge right here.

Now, check out this newly renovated historic pub.

Sydney Swans to bid for early AFLW entry – but need home ground first


Loading

The Giants’ AFLW team plays out of Blacktown International Sportspark, but that is too far away from Sydney’s heartland to be a feasible option for the Swans, while the new Lakeside Oval at Moore Park – where Sydney’s men’s team trains – has no seating or any other amenities for spectators.

Finding players will be no such issue for the Swans. Female participation in NSW has grown 211 per cent since the AFL’s inception, while there are 299 girls currently enrolled in the Swans’ academy program.

Earlier this year, the Swans tweaked a line in their club song to remove a gendered reference to ‘loyal sons’, changing it to ‘loyal Swans’ to make it more inclusive towards women, effectively future-proofing it for an eventual AFLW team.

Meanwhile, Swans defender Jordan Dawson – who will play his 50th AFL game on Saturday against Collingwood – has indicated his desire to stay at the club despite reports claiming he is of interest to rival clubs.

Dawson is out of contract at the end of the year and, according to AFL Media, is being monitored by several rival clubs, including Adelaide. The 24-year-old is originally from Robe, in South Australia’s south-east, but indicated he did not feel any pull towards returning to his home state.

“Not at this stage, no,” Dawson said. “I love it here, I love the boys. For me it’s just playing good footy and leaving that up to my manager and the club.”

From punter to player: Giants ruckman to debut

Greater Western Sydney are set to field another debutant in Saturday night’s clash with Richmond whose emergence represents a significant milestone for the club’s progression on and off the field.

Ruckman Kieren Briggs grew up supporting the Giants and was in the club’s second intake of academy players before being drafted with pick 34 at the 2018 draft.

Loading

The 21-year-old is set to become just the second western Sydney product to play for the Giants, after Nick Shipley, but the first who has played Aussie rules all the way through as a junior.

“It was definitely hard to support [the Giants] early days, I won’t lie about that,” Briggs said.

“There was only three or four wins in the first three years. Those wins were very special to remember. As we progressed and grew as a club, it was really cool to be there and watch that happen, and then to end up on the list was awesome. Getting to go out and play this weekend, it’s a great way to hopefully inspire other kids from western Sydney as well.

“There’s definitely plenty of talent around, and there definitely will be kids in the coming years coming out of western Sydney.”
