Well, we've done it. We've survived Winter! The cold is officially over, which means we can throw off our comfy blankets and re-emerge into the world ready whatever the Coast has in store. Celebrate (almost) the end of the working week at The Island and Longboards, or treat yourself to a cheeky session with Infamous The Show. Sanctuary Cove is also hosting their annual Paws and Pizzazz event this weekend, so if you're looking to cuddle some cute creatures this weekend, we know exactly where to find them...

Paw-Some Family Day Out | September 9 @ The Marine Village Sanctuary Cove

Gather your dogs, your cats, your lizards and your kids... Sanctuary Cove's annual Paws and Pizzazz event is back for another year of pet-friendly fun! Kicking off at 9am on September 9th, family members great and small will be invited to dress up and come out for a day of fun dedicated to all of your furry friends. Get photos with your pooches or enter them in one of the many competitions on the day, then finish the day off with a coffee or puppy-cchino from one of Sanctuary Cove's many pet-friendly cafes!


Sexy, silly and more than a little bit naughty... Infamous The Show is in the Gold Coast for just a few more weeks! A combination of sexy circus acts, rauncy dancing and plenty of gravity-defying stunts, Infamous is the latest incredible adults-only show to hit the Coast, supplying Gold Coaster's with plenty of outrageous performances and stunning stars for a truly unforgettable experience! Make the night even better with VIP table service, serving you all of your favourite snacks and alcoholic drinks all night!

$12 Burgers | Thursday nights @ Longboards Laidback Eatery & Bar

Did someone say $12 burgers?! Thursday might not be Friday, but Longboards is making the end of your working week a whole lot easier, with a huge range of $12 burgers and plenty of fries and sides to get you through the working week. Sink your teeth into beef patty's, onion rings, streaky bacon and pulled pork, or spoil yourself with a side of Salt & Pepper Squid, Popcorn Chicken, Wings and more. If you're feeling particularly adventurous (or really need to eat away your sorrows), give their Phat Bastard a go - 600 grams of wagyu beef, streaky bacon, pulled pork, cheddar cheese and more, it's not for the faint hearted!

Gin and Jazz on the Rooftop | Thursday nights @ The Island

You like Jazz? The Island Rooftop bar has you covered. Hosting The Gin Society every Thursday night, The Island combines smooth sipping with saxes and strings, creating the perfect environment to relax after a week of work. Nibble on snacks and sip cocktails as you enjoy some of the best Jazz music in Surfers, or join The Gin Society and truly spoil yourself with gin cocktails, roaming canapes and some of the best seats in the house! The weekend is almost here... Why not celebrate?

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.
