Life before selfies – get ready to feel some serious nostalgia pangs at Sit. Pose. Snap.

Whether you love them or hate them, there’s no denying that we are living in the age of the selfie. It’s easy to forget that back in the day you couldn’t just snap a photo of your mug at any given time – portraits took time, thought and a lot more care than the mere click of a button. Sit. Pose. Snap. is an exhibition taking over the Museum of Brisbane from Friday March 24 to give us an inside look at the history of portrait photography in Brisbane, from haunting studio sessions to kitschy candid captures. more

If you’re a fan of the Venzin family’s delicious Asian delicacies, then read on – you’re in for a treat. more

The Weekend Series: treat yo’self – five boutique hotels for a swanky staycation Brisbane and the Gold Coast

If you’ve been working yourself to the bone lately, thoughts have probably drifted towards the prospect of taking a holiday. Unfortunately for most of us, taking an extended amount of time off isn’t possible at this point in time, but that doesn’t mean a vacation must elude us. We are all for the idea of staycations – cheeky weekend sojourns to the fanciest hotel in town. You don’t have to travel far to live it up – both Brisbane and the Gold Coast boast a collection of gorgeous hotels where you can live like a baller for a weekend. We’ve collated a quick list of five excellent boutique hotels in Brisbane and the Gold Coast that make for a perfect staycation spot when you need to recharge your batteries. more

Sit down to authentic, nonna-approved Italian at Yeronga’s Osteria Epoca

Wipe that Dolmio grin off your face – true Italian flavour can’t be found in a jar of red wine and herb sauce. To get the most authentic experience one must immerse themselves in the true home-style roots of Italian cuisine. The concept for Osteria Epoca in Yeronga was born at the dinner table, where helpings of homemade dishes brought endless happiness and satiated appetites. If you are keen to taste the real deal, Osteria Epoca is now open and is serving up primo pasta and plenty of gustoso gastronomic delights. more

Indulge in pleasure all over when art and opera collide at Sensory

When it comes to cultural experiences, two things that tend to complement each other perfectly are art and music. Each has such a powerful impact on the way that we feel and perceive things, so it makes sense that when the two are combined, magic happens. The fine folk at Opera Queensland have cottoned on to this theory, creating a landmark event in the company’s debut creative venture of the year. Sensory is steeping into the Gallery of Modern Art on Friday April 7 for one night of all-in pleasure set to stun, surprise and tantalise perceptions from head to toe. more

Woolloongabba’s Broadway Hotel could be resurrected by a new proposed development

For the past seven years, the Broadway Hotel on Balaclava Street in Woolloongabba has stood forlorn and empty after a fire ravaged the building’s interior. In good news for restoration advocates, Majella Property Developments has submitted a development application that could see a new mixed-use building rise alongside the old hotel, while the corner pub will reportedly receive a full renewal. more

The Roadtrip Series: discover the best in the west with our ultimate Toowoomba tour guide

Toowoomba is like Brisbane’s equally cool older sibling – it may not get as much attention, but that untouched quality is part of what makes it so great. The town famous for its blooming flowers is flourishing in plenty of other ways – from boutique street art festivals to happening new eateries, ‘Woomba is where it’s at. Cast aside any notions that this is a sleepy country town, because this Roadtrip Series is here to blow that theory out of the water. Starting with the Felton Food Festival this weekend, we’ve composed a little list of the best places to eat, play and stay in the garden city. more
