Coffee, Food & Sunday's!
Well, the long weekends have finally gone, Mother's Day celebrations are over, and we're well and truly back into the daily grind of life. It's pretty hard to find something more exciting than your first Monday morning coffee, but with plenty of food, fun and freebies in store we've got plenty of ways to spice up your week. From your Monday morning coffee to your Sunday arvo beer, we know all of the best places to go to shake things up a little...
Ready, Set, Sip!
Winter is just around the corner folks! Save bundling up in a blankie with a hot chocolate and Pretty Woman for later because the Coast is chock-o-block with events and activities for everyone! Check out our ultimate guide to what’s hot, hip and happening this May on the GC.
Sip, Stay & Celebrate In Style!
Imaging this - It's Friday night, you've just finished work and now you're dressing up to go and sip perfect cocktails in a classy rooftop bar while you watch the sun set over the Surfers Paradise skyline. Sound like your ideal Friday night? Well at Aviary Rooftop Bar, you can do exactly that.
BBQs, Buffets & Booze!
Do we even really need an excuse to eat way too much food and crack open a cold one? Not really, but we've got one anyway - Australia Day is this weekend! A lot of us will be spending Australia Day down at the beach, but if you want to enjoy the day without having to cook, clean and organise everything (um, who wouldn't?), we've found five of the best Australia Day parties to help you party all evening long! Get hoppy!
German, Gourmet & Gold Coast Fashion Week!
October is one of our favourite months of the year. Not only is it warm enough to go outside again, but every other restaurant is gearing up for Halloween and Oktoberfest! Beer and Bratwurst are around every corner, while the more fashion-forward of us are hitting the shops to check out all of the newest trends for the Melbourne Cup and Gold Coast Fashion Week! Of course, shopping is hard (and hungry) work - So why not hit up Crafted Festival next weekend before you go?
Clubs, Carnivals & Craft Beer!
Can you smell the food trucks yet? We certainly can... Because the Broadwater Parklands will be full of them next weekend! If you're a fan of food you'll want to make your way down to Southport, but if you're a fan of booze you'll want to keep your eye on Kurrawa Park, because there's a Crafted Beer Festival going on down there soon too! Pick between Burgers, Bao, BBQ meats and Booze with two fabulous weekends of feasting, then make your way down to Surfers for the biggest 80's Club Reunion on the Coast, hitting off in neon style!

Writing, Workshops & Weddings!
'Tis the season to get married! The days are a little bit brighter, the nights a little bit warmer and the weeks a little bit better. While wedding season arrives and the Coast's annual Wedding Expo comes back to save everyone from Bridezilla, creatives from all over the Coast are meeting in Byron for the annual Writers Festival. Pour your creative ideas out by the beach, and hear from some of Australia's most successful Authors. Not your thing? Crack open a cold one at NightQuarter instead in their Beer, Bourbon & BBQ Fest!
