This week we're turning Greek, Pan-Asian, Mexican and everything else in between (including obese) with the wide range of upcoming festivals, openings and events that'll leave us cultured AF. Settle in to a traditional 3 course dinner or cruise the streets of South Bank in search of burgers dripping with flavour - whatever you're up for we promise it'll satisfy those taste buds.
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!
Say 'YES' to life
Now that we've got mundane Monday out of the way we can focus on the rest of the week, what to do & where to go - Brisbane's a 'sleep when you're dead' kind of city and has plenty of events, eateries, new openings and happenings on offer for you to live (this weeks) life to it's fullest. Catch a bargain, footy game or the mad sweats, whatever you're after, just get out there and grab your life in Bris by the b***s.
