You stay classy, Brisbane
Put down the greasy takeout, remove those stained sweat pants and jump in the shower. This week we're turning up the class a notch and treating ourselves to a little wining and dining at some of Brisbane's most exclusive venues and events.

Don't hibernate, re-hydrate
Ahh Winter. You either love it or you don't. Crispy nights and brisk mornings, hearty food, the fashion, red wine and whisky, coffee dates - we could go on forever, but we won't. Just because the temperature drops, it doesn't mean our social life has to too. In fact, Brisbane has so much on offer when it comes to finding somewhere to cosy up in with your favourite tipple and we've done all the (drinking) research for you..
The Reality of Online Dating

Oui to life
Parlesz vous le Français? This weeks Word On The Street really has a certain je ne sais quoi about it. Okay, so we're not French but are happy to support our snail eating friends celebrate Bastille Day on Friday, July 14 - a day representing freedom, equality and fraternity. Unfortunately, us Brisbanites are not lucky enough to score the day off, but the city has planned some pretty cool celebrations..

Eat, Drink & be Merry
Holy cow, we're half way through 2017, where on earth has the year gone?

We've sampled it all and have decided these are the best openings this year so far..
What's on in Brisbane Theatre
The temperature might be dropping outside, but inside the stage is heating up, as June sees two huge productions coming to QPAC.
Netflix is so hot right now..
If you're anything like us and feel like regular television shows aren't cutting it anymore, then Netflix is for you my friend. There's no ads, no channel changing between shows, no recording needed and no missing crucial details in episodes because you were on the loo or had your head in the fridge. Don't worry, Netflix has got your back. Watch whatever you want, when you want. The only downfall to having a bottomless pit of viewing pleasure? Deciding what the bloody hell to watch...
Lights, camera, action
This weeks Word On The Street is all about the 'triple threat' - singing, dancing and acting. The Brisbane performing arts scene is huge with live gigs, musicals, festivals, plays and events on nearly every day of the week, so there's always something to get excited about. Move with us as we dance our way through the next few weeks..
