Sippin' Our Way To Sunday

GC Word on the Street #152

Does the Coast ever stop pulling out ways to impress us? No, not really. We love finding new ways to break up the monotony of work, and with plenty of cafe's, restaurant's, bar's and events at every street corner, we're never short of things to do, dishes to eat and drinks to enjoy. From Halloween Parties to healthy brunch spaces, we know all of the best places to hit up this week!

Till Death Do Us Party | October 30th @ Aviary Rooftop Bar

We're always looking for a good excuse to go out and party - And what better excuse than Halloween! Decking out their nest exclusively for Halloween, grab your sparkliest pair of heels and head on up to Aviary Rooftop Bar for their incredible 'Till Death Do Us Party', promising plenty of drinks and unforgettable moments on the spookiest night of the year. Featuring their incredible colour-changing chameleon cocktail alongside free gore shots and spooky pizza, you have plenty of excuses to eat, drink and enjoy... Oh, and did we mention there's even a costume competition? #WINWINWIN!

Calling all muso's, creatives and lovers of good times... Buskers by the Creek is back for another year!

I'm a creative at heart - I love reading, I love writing and I love my social media! I spend the majority of my time sipping coffee and finding the next best cafe, but when I get a second off chances are I'll be brunching at my local or running off to whatever event is on that night! During Summer you can find me sipping coffee and tanning down by Burleigh Beach, and in Winter I'll be skiing the slopes of Perisher or buried under a mountain of blankets with chocolate and a good book.
