Cafes, Creations & Comedy Fests!
Can you believe it - We're halfway through February already! The New Year excitement has worn off, Valentine's Day has passed and we've settled into the day-to-day activities of life. Sometimes it can be hard to make it past Wednesday without a cocktail or two (or three), but don't worry - With a little help from a new Coomera cafe, a Comedy Festival and some seriously creative art, your week will be a whole lot more interesting in no time! Grab your gal pals, we're going out!
Eat, Drink & Party!
Boy, have we got a week for you! In case Valentine's Day hasn't made your week busy enough we've just discovered a whole bunch of fab new food and fun spaces that are open and ready to be explored! So grab your wallet and put on some pants (preferably the stretchy kind), because we've got some exploring to do!
Movies, Markets & Masterclasses!
Haven't figured out what you're doing yet this weekend? Don't worry, we've got you covered!

Don't feel like cooking anything? Head down to Burleigh Heads for a serious night of eating at their BBQ Bazaar Night Markets!
Champagne, Sens Coffee & Secret Dinners!
Sometimes all you need to do in life is treat yo'self. Whether that's a pamper day, a brunch date with your gal pals or a night indulging in bubbles, we could all use a little TLC sometimes. If you're well over-due for a gals brunch, the new Sens Coffee Co in Broadbeach has your caffeine needs covered - But if you're after an evening out (and you can afford to splash out a bit), why not check out Byron's Champagne Dinner or the ever-mysterious Diner en Blanc?
Arts, Entertainment and Shopping!
Just in case you weren't aware yet - There's some seriously cool stuff going down on the Coast this week!

German, Gourmet & Gold Coast Fashion Week!
October is one of our favourite months of the year. Not only is it warm enough to go outside again, but every other restaurant is gearing up for Halloween and Oktoberfest! Beer and Bratwurst are around every corner, while the more fashion-forward of us are hitting the shops to check out all of the newest trends for the Melbourne Cup and Gold Coast Fashion Week! Of course, shopping is hard (and hungry) work - So why not hit up Crafted Festival next weekend before you go?
Crust, Cinemas & Fast Cars!
We've got 99 problems, but boredom ain't one of them. Now that Winter has come and gone the Coast is full of things for the kids, the cats and the neighbours to do, with car shows, Openair Cinemas and Chinese theatre popping up right in time for the holidays. Grab your kids and take them to movies under the stars or hire a babysitter and treat yourself to a day out, then finish it off with Pizza at the Coast's newest gourmet Pizza Bar!

Food, Fire & Fu Manchu!
New season, new you! Now that we can actually get out of bed before 9am without freezing, going out with your gal pals for brunch isn't such a bad idea. Cafe's and restaurants right around the Coast are breaking out their Spring menu's, with Waffles and Pancakes being swapped for Acai Bowls and Avo on Toast as we shake off the Winter blues and move back into the days of blue skies. There's nothing better than a day out with your gal pals - So why not hit up a cafe for their new Spring menu then head to NightQuarter for a show afterwards?
Clubs, Carnivals & Craft Beer!
Can you smell the food trucks yet? We certainly can... Because the Broadwater Parklands will be full of them next weekend! If you're a fan of food you'll want to make your way down to Southport, but if you're a fan of booze you'll want to keep your eye on Kurrawa Park, because there's a Crafted Beer Festival going on down there soon too!
