GC Word on the Street #87

I hate to break it to you, but it's already July! We've had six months of food, culture, events and fun, but it's not over yet. There's new Mexican restaurants, exciting new live shows and even Christmas in July! Grab your friends and your jacket and slide down the rabbit hole... You never know what you'll discover!

Christmas In July | July 20th @ The Collective Palm Beach

Grab your santa hats and ugly Christmas jumpers, it's Christmas in July at The Collective! Kicking off at 6:30pm on the 20th and priced at just $65 a head, The Collective is turning into an incredible Winter Wonderland, treating guests to an incredible four-course Christmas dinner with plenty of cider and mulled wine to leave you full and hoppy. Grab your friends or family (or all of the above) and trade between eating, drinking and dancing, as The Collective celebrates Christmas in July the best way they know how... With wine!

Alice In Wonderland Live | July 15th @ HOTA

Our favourite childhood stories are coming to life... And they're coming to the Gold Coast! Tumble down the rabbit hole and into the world of Alice In Wonderland, as the smash hit theatrical production hits the Coast's very own Home of the Arts this month for one incredible day! Telling the magical story of Alice in Wonderland through actors and puppets, producer Ethan Walker will transport you straight through the pages and into Alice's world in a show that's sure to enchant you. Selling out all around the world, Alice In Wonderland Live is a must-see... You'd be as mad as the Hatter if you don't!

New Mexican Taqueria | Byron Bay

Nacho day? We have something that'll help. Byron Bay is welcoming in the delicious new Taqueria Chupacabra, celebrating the Coastal cuisine of Mexico with its relaxed, beach-front vibes and all of your favourite Mexican food. We're taco'n about taco's, ceviche, esquites, slow-cooked pork and plenty of share plates, as well as several fiery Mexican cocktails to round it all out. Inspired by both Byron and Coastal Mexico's relaxed atmosphere, owners Evan White and Amelia Stokes aim to transport you and your tastebuds straight to the beaches of Mexico, stuffing their restaurant with vibrant colours and delicious food that you'll be taco'n about for months afterwards.

For as long as I can remember I’ve had a passion for all things creative, and so when it came time to choosing my degree it was only natural that I gravitated towards studying Creative Writing at Griffith University. I’m in my final year of University now and plan to graduate in November, but when I’m not out at University you’ll often find me curled up in some secluded corner of my house with headphones and a good book or brewing coffees down at my local Café. Occasionally you can also find me outside with my partner, family or dog, but only when the weather is warm enough. I love the rain and cold weather, but only if it’s outside and I’m inside. Born and raised on the Gold Coast, good beaches, good vibes and good company are some of my favourite things in life.
