BBQ Championships, Craft Beer, Food Trucks, Live Music, Masterclasses and more. You’re welcome.
The best kind of festival is where you do what you want, right? Right.
Imagine sitting on the grass and gnawing on a giant hunk of meat from some of Brisbane’s Best BBQ Foodies whilst sipping on some of Australia (and the World’s) most delicious craft brews.
And then getting schooled and learning the ropes from the High Nerds of the BBQ & Beer World in one of the Masterclasses, getting all up in their grill with all the questions you ever had about ‘queing and brewing.
Whichever way you want to plan your Roadshow, there will be a kick arse Live Music lineup to tickle your eardrums for a truly awesome Summer Saturday.
Introducing.... (drum roll please)... the BBQ & Beer Roadshow. You’re welcome.

Bright, Boozy, Beachy, Bold & Beautiful
Some say if you can’t handle the heat, get out of the kitchen, but Word on the Street would rather rip its shirt off, slop on some sunscreen, rock some cool shades, and embrace the heat. Diving straight into the deep end is the only way to discover the top trends before they float away, plus, it’s a great opportunity to practice your breaststroke. We’ve already made the first splash, and rounded up everything you need to know, so jump in. Trust us, the water’s fine!
Meet Eugene Lee | Head Chef | Culinary Artist
Eugene Lee is a professed rule breaker. He delights in being called a rebel and even described himself as the founder of “gansta cuisine”. He breaks the rules…in cooking…for all the right reasons!
Meet Laura Hitchins
The Good Guide is here to celebrate local is lovely. What makes a place so unique is her people. We meet the lovely Laura Hitchins from Rosalie's boutique cinema, Blue Room Cinebar and hear what she's passionate about, her favourite digs and Brisbane's best kept secret...
Neighbourhood Bar Kitchen in Chapel Hill
Suburban Social is for the kids on the Westside … and those willing to travel for a little burger-beer-deep-fry-porn. Citing superstars in the kitchen and the bar, this newly opened Chapel Hill pit stop was a concoction of craft beer loving mates x2 (and a side of heavy wifey encouragement!) for a community-feel bar where local is always the best and all the locals are welcome.
at Watt this Summer
It’s a long, long summer looming for families with parents wondering how to keep the kids, and themselves, happy. With a month left of school holidays and all of summer to go, WATT at Brisbane Powerhouse has launched its Kids Eat Free campaign.

New year, new nest! The holidays may be over, but now that you don’t have to worry about what’s new and happening in our vibrant city. Luckily, everything you need for a turbocharged new year is compiled in this easy to love Word on the Street. It’s our belated gift to you!
A taste of Paris in the Valley
Be seduced by the delightful, decadent and sassy new French inspired restaurant by Mary Randles, (one half of e'cco bistro). Located in Fortitude Valley, Madame Rouge is Brisbane's newest bar and bistro serving up a classic French menu by Philip Johnson and head chef Matt Short. The venue is dark, sexy and romantic with its luscious velvet drapings and candles, setting the tone for a 50s post war vibe.
Top 8 By Table Brisbane
2016 was full of great new venues, sublime events and iconic loved venues doing cool things; so choosing the best of the year was no easy feat. As a freelance photographer/founder of Table Brisbane, this allowed me to explore more, meet and introduce new friends to what was happening in Brisbane. I got to indulge my palate a lot and as a lover of food, passionate about trying new and interesting experiences.
Deck the Halls with Cakes By Judy C
‘Tis the month of indulgence upon us. December marks a month where it is not only socially acceptable to feast upon Christmas themed sweets, but encouraged. Nay, a requirement!
Of course, not everyone has the time to make tri-layered cakes and gooey slices. We lead busy lives! But there is a special place in Ashgrove that, though lacking in elves and reindeer, that will put the merry in Merry Christmas. Meet Cakes by Judy C, a sweet lil’ workshop on Waterworks Road that has everything your sweet tooth desires.
To Beer or Not to Beer?
Kicking back and pulling a beer with your mates after a long day is one of life’s true pleasures, and a part of good ol’ Aussie mateship. Nothing beats frosty hops and the warmth of cheer and good company, and nowhere else can you find a place perfect for such times than The Catchment Brewing Co.
Sugar, Spice, and Everything Nice
Cake is everything good in life, and everybody deserves a sweet treat. Local food icon Jocelyn Hancock must think similarly, as Cake & Bake, in West End, specialises in delectable indulgences that will have your toes curling. Celebrating one year, do we need another reason to eat cake? No...
A Smorgasbord Of Venues
Christmas is quickly approaching... have you booked your venue yet?
