They'll be serving up their mouthwatering smash burgers and loaded hash browns – a match made in heaven? Yes. New to the food scene, Hash n Smash have already made a big name for themselves, so make sure you get there early so you don't miss out. Doors open at 6pm.
Crowlers For Canines In Kingsland

Head along from midday and buy a beer to support the SPCA – with all profits from any beer or flight sold from Garage Project's two charity kegs, going straight to the SPCA. You're also absolutely encouraged to bring your dogs down to hang out for the day, or to get in amongst the puppy fun if you're dog-less!
2 For 1 Best Ugly Bagels
Purchase any bagel from Best Ugly Bagel's Commercial Bay store this Saturday and you'll receive another bagel completely free.
