Soak it up
Everywhere you go, this city is bursting with talent. There's the local musos, chefs, artists and designers of every kind, you've got emergency service personal, builders, hairdressers, writers, barista's (low-key lifesavers) and the list goes on and on. We have an appreciation for those who do, what we can't. This week's Word On The Street is full of flavour & life. From enjoying tasty new bites created by hardworking chefs to being completely in awe of some of the city's most talented performers. Take the time to really enjoy the present, those feelings of satisfaction won't stick around for long so relish in the moment (no matter how big or small)!
An olde-worlde setting with nouveau brunch
Housed in Paddington’s former apothecary, this local institution serves up inventive, sustainably sourced dishes that are a far cry from your run-of-the-mill eggs on toast.
Summer in the city
Forget the beach, Brisbane summers are all about iced coffee's, champagne, fresh seafood, cocktails and cool cinemas. Where else do you get to stroll through a french inspired lane way with a glass of bubbly in hand or chow down on freshly shucked oysters at a massive seafood block party? We're telling you - Brisbane is where its at this silly season. Leave the kinis at home 'cause we're doing summer in the city.

Unique Ideas for the Ultimate Present
Everyone knows it’s the thought that counts. That’s a given. But after a lifetime of birthdays, Christmases, and a few gifts just because, you’re running critically low on thoughts. You’ve already given Dad enough ties, gift cards, and aftershave to survive the apocalypse. Now, another Father’s Day is looming. Again? It was just Father’s Day! Never mind. Time flies, and the calendar doesn’t lie. After last year’s fiasco (remember: dad wears size 10 shoes, no one wears size 14s, not even when they’re on sale), you’re desperate to impress. So, what do you give the man who says he doesn’t want anything?
