GC Word on the Street #114

Did someone say good food, craft beer and another music festival!? Whether you're a foodie, a movie buff or just here for a good time, 2019 is serving up the foods for everyone, with fresh restaurants, movies under the stars and music festivals ready to fill up our every waking moment. Grab a date for an evening at the newly re-done Oyster Bar & Grill, or grab your mates and crack open a cold one at Burleigh Brewing Co with Movies Under The Stars! Oh, and if you're a music festival kind of person, we've got the scoop on who is playing at Drop Festival in April - And it's pretty damn exciting!

Drop Festival Line Up Announced

We love our music festivals - Seriously. So we were super keen when we found out that Drop Festival had finally announced its line up for the 2019 festival! Running on Saturday April 6th at Queen Elizabeth Park enjoy a day of food, friends and music with artists including Client Liaison, Hockey Dad, Alex The Astronaut, Jungle Giants and the favourite Angus & Julia Stone! Tickets go on sale on January 22nd (so like, now), so make sure you get to the website and grab some before they sell out - It won't take long!

Outdoor Movie Night | Jan 31st @ Burleigh Brewing Co

One of our favourite things about Summer is being able to enjoy the movies under the stars at Burleigh Brewing Co, particularly when it's combined with cold craft beer and friends! Running their Outdoor Movie Night on the last Thursday of every month (so January the 31st!), Burleigh Brewing Co is bringing the movie goods, combining cold beer, good films and great company for the perfect week-day escape at their outdoor cinema. Kicking off the pre-drinks at 6pm with the movie starting at 7pm - This months showing is 'The Castle' - Grab your mates and a camping chair and come on down for a night off. Oh, and did we mention it's totally free? #YesPlease!

Oyster Bar & Grill | Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort

One of our New Years resolutions this year is to enjoy more fine dining - And Sheraton Resort is making it a whole lot easier with the re-vamp of Oyster Bar & Grill right in time for the New Year! One of the Coast's best kept secrets, Oyster Bar & Grill is serving up some of the best and freshest Steak and Seafood on the Gold Coast, using freshly caught local seafood alongside exclusive produce from around the country to create their dishes. Open for lunch and dinner, you can enjoy a totally mouth-watering selection of Grilled Barramundi, Moreton Bay Bugs or Cape Grim Eye Fillet, complimented perfectly by specialty international wines or a signature cocktail. If you need to cure a sweet tooth, Sheraton also has an incredible range of desserts, such as their Warm Sticky Date Pudding combined with Toffee Sauce and Vanilla Ice Cream for a truly decadent experience! If anyone needs an idea for Valentine's Day... We think we've found the place!

I'm a creative at heart - I love reading, I love writing and I love my social media! I spend the majority of my time sipping coffee and finding the next best cafe, but when I get a second off chances are I'll be brunching at my local or running off to whatever event is on that night! During Summer you can find me sipping coffee and tanning down by Burleigh Beach, and in Winter I'll be skiing the slopes of Perisher or buried under a mountain of blankets with chocolate and a good book.
