From local legends to seasoned veterans – our top five gut-busting picks at the Brisbane Comedy Festival

For most of us, making other people laugh is really hard. Heck, if you believe Hollywood legend then the effort involved can actually result in making you bedridden. That being said, it’s all the more impressive when folks can get up on stage and cause pants-wetting laughter just by saying some words. From Sunday February 26, the Brisbane Powerhouse and Brisbane City Hall will be buzzing with the collective wheezes of audiences taking in more than 66 professional acts over the month-long course of the Brisbane Comedy Festival. With so much quality content on offer, it can be tricky to navigate the sea of lols – to make it a teensy bit easier, we’ve rounded up five acts that you definitely should not miss. Go into these shows with an open mind and an empty bladder – you have been warned. more

Celebrate life’s finest things at Portside Wharf’s Cheese and Champagne Pop-up

By now, dear reader, we’ve hopefully established that you and I are united by our undying love of cheese. So I’d like for you to imagine this scenario. It’s a balmy autumn afternoon. The sun is greeting your cheeks with a soft kiss, a cool breeze is floating past you and the gentle ebb and flow of the Brisbane River is luring you into a state of pure bliss. This, however, isn’t a regular autumn afternoon – this is the kind that dreams are made of. Because in this scenario my friend, you are surrounded by French cheese and bottles of Pol Roger champagne. more

Stone & Wood is throwing one hell of a backyard bash for Brewsvegas

When it comes to throwing a classic backyard party, us Aussies really know a thing or two about how to do it up right – what’s not to love about the classic combination of a good feed, some ice-cold brews, a killer soundtrack and gorgeous weather thrown in for good measure? Taking this concept to the next level is the dream team of Stone & Wood and Brewsvegas, who have teamed up to create the ultimate garden get-together for a great cause. You best make your way to the Old Museum on Saturday March 18 to see what’s going down, lest you risk a serious case of FOMO. more

Shrill: An Evening with Lindy West brings power back to the people

Women’s rights are a very important issue, now and always – it seems like every time us ladies make a little headway, something happens to undo the hard work. For example, the man currently leading the free world is probably one of the most publicly sexist people in the free world, so it’s an uphill battle to say the least. There is a silver lining – badass feminist warriors who refuse to sit down and shut up are out there spreading the message that women deserve to take up space. Shrill: An Evening with Lindy West is coming to the State Library of Queensland on Wednesday March 1 to help men and women alike laugh and learn from one of the most powerful voices of this generation. more

The round-up: all-day breakfast spots in Brisbane

The weekend is for taking it slow – we can’t be blamed if we want to sleep in. We shouldn’t be punished for enjoying our days off by missing the best meal of the day – breakfast! Thankfully, there are some cafes that are forgiving to us sleepyheads, offering all-day breakfast menus so bed heads can enjoy an eggs benny or for dusty revellers that are craving the restorative properties of bacon. more

Taste some authentic Queensland flavour with Little Clive’s new menu

In our hurry to devour our eggs benedict or smashed avo, we often give little thought to where our local cafe’s produce is sourced. At Little Clive you never need to fret, with the popular cafe committing to showcasing some of the state’s freshest fare. In case you missed it, Little Clive nabbed the winning vote for best breakfast in 2016’s Taste of Queensland Awards. Now the cafe is unveiling its new seasonal menu, filled with tasty breakfast bites that maintain a strong representation of Queensland produce. We’re stoking the flames of your appetite with a look at Little Clive’s hot smoked trout omelette and dark chocolate chia pudding, which are available now. more
