Soak it up

Everywhere you go, this city is bursting with talent. There's the local musos, chefs, artists and designers of every kind, you've got emergency service personal, builders, hairdressers, writers, barista's (low-key lifesavers) and the list goes on and on. We have an appreciation for those who do, what we can't. This week's Word On The Street is full of flavour & life. From enjoying tasty new bites created by hardworking chefs to being completely in awe of some of the city's most talented performers. Take the time to really enjoy the present, those feelings of satisfaction won't stick around for long so relish in the moment (no matter how big or small)!

New eats, beats, seats and treats.

Word on the Street #118

What a bountiful week of new eats, treats and meats. Brisbane you are truly stepping it up a notch with fine fare, creamy coffee and delicious dining with a conscience. Bring it on. You have NO excuses to stay in this Winter. What about listening to sultry jazz tunes whilst dining and drinking a full-bodied red (or perhaps a dirty martini is more your style?). Get out and support local Brisbane businesses, and fill your belly with warm food, and your mind with hot conversations and jazz-tactic tunes. #YAAASS

And just like that, another month is gone (holy cow). Brisbane, you've put on quite a show for the first half of the year and we have no doubt you'll continue to #wow us over the next 6 months. Forget dry July, mid-year diets and winter hibernation, there are mouth-watering espresso martinis to drink, along with carb-loaded meals waiting to be eaten and inspiring exhibits to wander through!

Cocktails; Need we say more?

Cool Winter Cocktail Creations

Cocktail lovers rejoice! Post-work and sunny afternoon drinks just got a whole lot better with a number of Brisbane's favourite bars updating their cocktail menus. Yep, that's right - there are new, fresh AF beverages out there just waiting to tickle our taste buds, one sip at a time. So, whether you're a lover of dark rum or prefer your booze to taste like unicorns, we listed a few local watering holes who are sporting new cocktail menus this season. If you hadn't already guessed it, hibernation is a total no-go for us this Winter (and it should be for you too!).

New menu, who dis?

Word On The Street #115

Out with the old and in with the new (well, sort of). Staying on top of seasonal foodie trends and produce is something most Brisbane eateries take pride in #lucky. Menus are continually being updated and tweaked to suit, not only our wants and needs, but also, what's current, fresh and locally sourced. We've had the privilege of taste-testing a number of new breakfast, lunch, dinner and drink menus over the past few weeks, and we think you should try them too. Be quick though, time fly's when you're having fun and before you know it, it'll be spring and the menus will be different again!

Peace-Out Plastic Bags

The end of an era.

Peace-Out Plastic Bags

We're sure you've heard on the grapevine, single-use plastic bags are slowly (but surely) being phased out of local supermarkets around the country. ABOUT TIME we say. Woolworths revealed it would begin discontinuing the use of plastic bags in supermarkets, Big W and BWS stores, with a total ban in place by June 30. The move sparked Coles to agree to do the same less than two hours later and they're now set to have the affect in place by July 1.
