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.

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!

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.
