New Year, Same Me
Hello 2018, we are ready for you. Our resolution lists have been made and they feature an array of goals including eating anything and everything that comes our way, getting our #fitspo on, enjoying more LOL moments, living life to the fullest and, the list goes on and on. So, it's basically exactly the same as what we had written down last year. You know what they say - if it ain't broke don't fix it, right? New year, same us! We're always hungry, thirsty and feeling adventurous and if there's one thing Brisbane knows how to do, it's to let the good times roll. We've listed a few low-key events to help ease our way into the new year..
Lets get feast-ive
Let's be honest, Christmas can be damn stressful. Somehow we go from September to December in a matter of minutes and the next thing we know, we're out until 11 pm on Christmas Eve picking up last minute gifts. The thoughts 'What the hell am I buying right now?' run through our heads the entire time, and we either end up spending $4000 on weird, useless ornaments for everyone or we admit defeat and walk out with nothing but chocolate-filled stockings and a not-so-jolly attitude. Well sorry to say, we can't help you in the present buying department but we can help you find the perfect Christmas party venue. Give your colleagues the gift that keeps on giving this year (yes, we mean flowing booze and drool-worthy food) and throw them a bangin' Chrissy soiree they wont forget. We've done the research and listed a few of Brisbane's hottest venues to get festive in. Let the feasting begin..

New in the Nests
Spread your wings fellow pigeons, it's time to leave the nest. Brisbane and the Gold Coast both announced new openings this week, leaving us chirping for joy. There's plenty of places to get your beaks wet, as well as tasty eateries that'll get the wings flapping. Get out of the bird baths, ruffle up those feathers and join us as we soar around town, stopping only to perch at the hottest new venues. You're in for a tweet.

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!
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.
Indian-Inspired, Spice Infused Bar & Restaurant
India is renowned for food overflowing with vivid colour and warm spices that dance along your tastebuds, and Colour Me Flavour graciously brings this world of sumptuous dining to Brisbane. But, founder Nita Tailor and head chef Eugene Lee bring a modern twist to the authentic dining experience by fusing the old and the new.

A Fantastic Coffee Experience
Take a bite out of the big apple, or a sip of their coffee rather, in Brisbane’s CBD at a café that respects top quality ‘cawfee’. Cawfee Café and Bar introduced its NYC influence initially through its name. Try saying ‘coffee’ in a New York accent and you’ll understand why.
