Word On The Street #130
Bites, Beers, Banter & Birthdays
Birthdays are there to be celebrated, so let's celebrate Brisbane. You just bring yourself we've got everything else covered, the bites, the brews and the banter, it's all there. You'll think it's your birthday with all the gifts and surprises we've got in store. Oh and no need to bring a present, your presence is good enough for us. Although if you're feeling particularly giving a nice bottle of bubbly always goes down a treat, we're just kidding (kind of). Let the shenanigans commence.
5 Beers, 4 Courses, 1 Hell of a good time.
Sniff and Sip is Brewhouse Brisbane's exploration of good beer and fine food, where both are served together across four courses. The last sesh for the year features 3 Ravens, where the 3 stands for the 3 ingredients that go into every beer – the craft, the passion and the good times, or the making, the inspiration and the quirk. We'll let you in on a little secret you'll be treated to 5 limited release beer (including a BBCo. collab).
Neon Tiger | 27 Oct - 17 November
The adult gap-year you never knew you needed
Fast, frivolous and continuously flashing, the always-awake playground of a tourist mecca in Bangkok paints the scene for Neon Tiger – a new Australian musical love story. Ever wanted to run away from a broken heart? I think we've all been there. Andy is doing just that when she meets Arisa in party-district karaoke bar. Sparks fly and the rest is history. Everyone can relate to a romance like Andy's and Arisa's - that unexpected, electric, messy holiday romance.
Brisbane born Dan Arnold has come home and let us tell you we’ve never been happier. Returning from the cobblestone streets of Paris with an abundance of culinary knowledge and techniques. Dan graces us with his creativity letting his imagination run wild in the open kitchen, with dishes often created and evolved in the moment, or created specially to suit dietary requirements. And we have to tell you about his knives. Why you may ask? Well … they were crafted by fifth-generation knife maker David Ponson from Thiers in France (where Dan and his wife Amelie lived), and replicate custom knives that Dan presented to the judges at Bocuse d’Or. Oh did we also forget to tell you that Dan ranked 8thin the world with his team at the Bocuse d’Or World Final in 2017. Aren’t we lucky! Restaurant Dan Arnold, located in the Alex Perry Hotel on Ann Street, is a place where nature meets creativity.
