Word On The Street #116

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!

Salt Meats Cheese & Gelato Messina| WV Laneway

West Village is turning into an Italian dream as they welcome foodie favourites Salt Meats Cheese and Gelato Messina to Laneway WV from today (3 July) until the end of September. The pop up will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner - providing us with killer pizzas, pastas, freshly ground espresso, pastries from Montrachet and of course, gelato. The month of July will see guests warm up with Gelato Messina's exclusive hot chocolate, the Bombe Choc Alaska made rich with dulce de leche gelato and topped with toasted marshmallow! Listen to live music while you sip on sweet drops and stroll amongst a backdrop of lush greenery and twinkling fairy lights #so-romantic.


Where The Wolves Eat | Morningside

Round up the (hungry) pack and head over to Morningside where the wolves feast. No seriously, drop into the newest cafe on the block, Where The Wolves Eat. It's a place where the pancakes are thick, savoury and spiked with chipotle and bourbon maple syrup. Picture a support network of spring onion, jack cheese, bacon and pork & fennel sausage crumble. Whether you’re hunting solo or with the wolf pack - all roads lead to Wolf Country.


World Press Photo Exhibition | Brisbane Powerhouse

The World Press Photo Exhibition is a display of some of the worlds most powerful photos, capturing both humanity and nature at it's best and worst. For six decades, the World Press Photo Foundation has been working from its home in Amsterdam as a creative, independent, nonprofit organization. In that time, the world has changed continuously, and new developments in the media and technology have transformed journalism and storytelling. Their mission has expanded, and now draw on their experience to guide visual journalists, storytellers, and audiences around the world through this challenging and exciting landscape. These amazing heart-felt images will be on display at the Brisbane Powerhouse from the 30 June to 22 July so be sure to pop down and check them out!


Espresso Martini Fridays | The George Bar & Bistro

The George Bar & Bistro on King Street is ready to rise and grind as the working day falls, introducing Espresso Martini Fridays to your end of week traditions. Every Friday from 4 pm in July, freshly ground coffee will be paired with premium liquor for your pleasure, which they’ll be serving up for the small price of $12! From buzzing espresso martini specials to an in-house DJ spinning you in the right direction, you won’t dream of being anywhere else.


The Makers Take Exhibition | July 27

Addicted to design? Well, The Makers Take Exhibition is one event you cannot miss! Open to the public and free, TMT will feature the work of over 20 of the country’s leading designers and makers and will also spotlight established and emerging artisans from South East Queensland & Northern New South Wales, with many of the exhibited items available for purchase on the night.
