Good Times & Champagne Vibes!

GC Word on the Street #119

Are you a morning person or a night person? Would you rather start your day off with a big cup of coffee, or finish off the night with a glass of champagne? Well, with a brand new coffee space opening in Burleigh this week and only the coolest pool party ever about to go down, now you can do both! We've got plenty to see, plenty to do and plenty to drink... So let's grab the party shoes and get hoppy! Sip, sip, hooray!

Flying Circus | March 29th & 30th @ HOTA

We never get tired of circuses. Something to do with watching people fly around a stage and perform impossible tricks fills us with wonder, so we were stoked to discover that the Flying Fruit Fly Circus was coming to town at the end of the month! (Before you ask - No, it's not actually a fruit fly circus). Made up of entirely young performers, their latest performance 'Junk' follows the story of a young boy as he meets spirits from the 1940's living in a junk yard, learning how to play, invent, trust and take risks in two incredible performances! What's much better than a night out at the circus? Not a lot. So should you grab tickets with your friends before it's too late? Heck yeah!

Drink Pink Wednesdays | Vapiano Surfers Paradise

Just in case you needed another excuse to go out for drinks this Wednesday night... We've found you a reason! And a super worthwhile one at that! Recently introducing their 'Drink Pink Wednesdays', Vapiano in Surfers Paradise is helping us to help women all around Australia, donating 100% of their profits from the drinks to women's charity Share The Dignity! Priced at just $5 with any pizza, pasta or salad purchase after 5pm, all of the money from the drinks will go towards helping homeless women and women in domestic violence situations - So next time you're planning a gals night out, why not drop into Vapiano and support your fellow women!

New Burleigh Coffee Space | Burleigh Co-Op

Ok, so we know the Gold Coast is a little obsessed with their coffee (and by a little, we mean a lot), so we have some good news - The old owners of Burleigh Social are opening a brand new space this week called Burleigh Co-Op! Cue the party poppers! Opening soon, Burleigh Co Op is the Gold Coast's first community cafe, lovingly created by the minds behind Hotel Miami, Granddad Jacks, The Lost Boys Barbershop, Ellki Blu Jewellery, and Fingers and Bones Catering to create one incredible foodie space for us to enjoy. Located in Hibiscus Haven and open from 6am every day of the week, you'll be able to treat yourself to Social Espresso Coffee and all of the delicious food that your heart desires - And if you're anything like us, you're super keen to go! We'll see you there!

End of Summer Party | March 24th @ QT Gold Coast

Sorry, did someone say cocktails, live music and an epic pool party!? If you're like us and you're totally in denial about Summer coming to an end (say hello to jeans, jumpers and cold mornings), QT Hotel Gold Coast has the perfect cure, hosting an epic End of Summer Party that you absolutely will not want to miss! We're talking DJ on the Deck, swim-up bar, pool inflatables, games and plenty of drinks all afternoon long for just $20, with the option to stay overnight in a Mountain View room for for just $189! Do we even need to say more? Grab your tickets and get yourself there!

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.
