Mammoth Meals From Tusk Til Dawn
Welcome to the ice age baby. The majestic woolly mammoth may have not have survived it, but their favourite bar sure did. I give you the Woolly Mammoth Alehouse! As wickedly epic as the mammoth itself, this alehouse knows there’s nothing better than a frostbitten glass to keep your beer cold as ice, ice, baby! With the ability to transform any beer from an 8 to a 10, the Woolly Mammoth is the place you never knew you needed.
We’re bringing Sunday back. Yeah!
The Sunday roast is a timely tradition all about sitting down to a big meal of veggies, gravy and roast meat with your family to reconnect after a long week of hard work. The roast remains a dish that is treated with respect and care, something special. A meal that takes time and thought to prepare and should be celebrated with family and friends instead of something to be scoffed down in front of the television on your couch in your underwear. But with the many restaurants around Brisbane serving up delicious roasts any day of the week, makes it easy to keep this tradition alive. It might just be perfect the time to reinvigorate this age old tradition, disconnect from our gadgets and gizmos and reconnect with family over a delicious meal - whether it’s on a Sunday or not.
Friday Night Lights & Drinks
If there are three things that all Australians love with every fibre of their body, it’s live sport, beer, and good food. With the wide world of sports hitting our screens this season, be sure not to miss out on the FIFA World Cup, State of Origin, NRL, and AFL, the question of where to watch this year’s big games in Brisbane is a hard choice to make yet again. Before you commit yourself to another year on the couch with a bag of Doritos, you may want to venture out of your comfort zone and check out some of the coolest spots to catch up on some genuine sports entertainment.
Cocktails; Need we say more?
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!).
