To New Beginnings
We live in a such a glorious city and you are never far from somewhere or something wonderful. While we bid farewell to some of our favourites we also welcome fresh starts and new beginnings. With some many new openings you’ll never get bored!
Fresh Concept, Even Fresher Produce
Fancy yourself a bit of a fancypants? Always on the quest for the very best? Your weekly trip to Woolies not quite cutting it in the luxury stakes? Enter Mercado, Australia’s newest, and poshest, food shopping concept arrives at King Street in Bowen Hills.
The winds of change..
Brisbane is like a fine bottle of wine; over time the quality improves, and each sip is greatly appreciated. Our city is continually evolving and maturing, producing breathtaking venues that never cease to amaze us. If it's not an entirely new concept, it's a renovation or re-brand. Let's just say, if Bris were a TV series it would either be Packed to the Rafters or Keeping Up With The Kardashians - wouldn't you agree? No month is the same in this town and we wouldn't have it any other way!
A one-night-stand you won't regret in the morning.
The year is sure flying by now that we're almost in August! Although we're more than halfway through the year the events definitely don't stop coming! We've curated the ultimate list of events for you that you NEED to attend this month. Not to mention that if you don't attend, it could cause serious FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out). It's a one-night-stand you won't regret in the morning. Don't say we didn't warn you!
Go on, get out there
Lady birds and gentle pigeons, listen up. It's time to round up the flock and get ready for a jam-packed schedule this weekend, cause we're doing it all! From lantern-lit evening walks to long lunches, massive markets and beefed up bites, we've picked a few happenings that'll keep you warm, full and feeling good. If you're thinking of staying in, think again. There's too much to see and do so, spread those wings and get ready to soar around the city with us..
You're pretty damn cool Brisbane
During the cooler months, some of us choose to hibernate while others choose to rug up, get out and milk this glorious city for all it's worth. If you're a pigeon like us, you love to spread your wings and fly high! Rain, hail or shine, exploring every nook and cranny on the grid is totally our thing. We're a lucky flock of birds as Brisbane is always producing new and exciting things for us to see and do. Local is lovely and this week there are plenty of lovely things us locals can do - how does feasting on copious amounts of dessert and cheese or indulging in a little retail therapy sound?
