Come Friday, December 7, you won't want to be late for a very important date. You will want to play croquet, drink Pimm's cups and eat pizza, however. Sure, you mightn't find gin-based spirits and delicious slices in Alice in Wonderland, but folks at the The Fox Hotel are clearly using their imagination for this themed end-of-week laneway party.
Returning for its second year, Garden Wonderland will also boast a pop-up Colonial Brewing Co. bar, dedicated Asahi, Peroni and Cricketers Arms taps and plenty of vodka — and that's just the beverage part of the proceedings. You can also throw some royal shapes to both live and electronic music, should that take your fancy. Or, play giant games of Jenga, Connect 4 and chess.
Entry is free, with the fun taking over Fish Lane from 5pm. Pretending that you're following a white rabbit as you wander past two huge flower walls — one measuring six metres, the other measuring three — and just generally hop between bars, games and the dance floor won't cost a thing, either.
