Sydney Streets in Surry Hills

“I wish there was more live music”, someone said over lunch today. A group of us were at the Carrington Hotel, a pub on Bourke Street, Surry Hills. I had the prawn linguine and it was excellent, by the way, though there was maybe a little too much chilli.

We were chatting about today’s “Sydney Streets” event, the second such event in Surry Hills.

The first such event, https://jamesobrien.id.au/2022/02/surry-streets/ back in February was a welcome surprise after the months of lockdown.

Due to COVID and other factors, it sounds like the “Surry Hills Festival” (put on by the Neighbourhood Centre) has gone into a lengthy pause, and probably won’t return. But “Sydney Streets” (put on by the City of Sydney) has emerged on the scene, and it’s a great initiative.

Even though there were a few DJs, I agree that it would be good to have a few more live performers.
