Word on the Street #202
Grab the Monet and let's Gogh
Bonjour! It’s safe to say that this week at the Good Guide, we’re feeling more than a little inspired. Maybe it’s because of all the incredible cultural events coming up, or the sudden drop in temperature, or maybe even an especially good workout (see below). We reckon that after perusing this latest Word on the Street, you’ll be feeling the same. So, let’s get those creative juices flowing and live life in vibrant colour!
Come on down to Newstead’s most stylish cocktail bar starting this Sunday for the best seafood deal in town. Hello Gorgeous is dishing out $1 prawns, and they’re shrimp-ly the best. And while you’re at it, why not sit for a spell and enjoy their gorgeous cocktails, luxurious wine list, and live entertainment? Sunday night never looked so stylish.
Anyone who’s ever enjoyed a night on the town (…we certainly have) knows that there’s nothing quite like an immersive, full-body workout, whether it’s dancing to Beyoncé or hitting the boxing gym. InspireBox is offering new guests 5 classes for $50, so whether your jam is spin class or boxing, get ready to sweat up a storm.
But don’t fret, these particular furry friends aren’t quite the pests you thought them to be. Standing seven meters tall and brightly illuminated, Amanda Parer’s Intrude exhibition sees six giant, inflatable bunnies exploring their new environment at Eagle Street Pier this month. Designed to invite viewers to reflect on their own environmental impacts, this exhibition is one-of-a-kind, and not to be missed. Hop to it!
Stop the presses! Rufus Wainwright is releasing a brand-new album, and if his prolific discography weren’t already enough, his new single Damsel in Distress will have you on the edge of your seat. Releasing on April 24th (but available for pre-order now), Unfollow the Rules is a fitting bookend to this phase of Wainwright’s career, while also launching a bold and creative new vision for the singer and songwriter.
Planning your big day? South Brisbane’s The Greek Club is putting on a wedding showcase like no other, complete with canapés, cocktails, and all the latest and greatest trends in wedding styling.

Hand-crafted and Australian-made, Helena Rose headwear has been adorning Brisbane’s most stylish (and ethically-conscious) noggins for almost a decade, and they’re now available to shop at Brisbane’s home of slow fashion, Uncommon Store!
