Roma Street scores new heritage-inspired boozer Mr Luxford’s

Brisbane City’s Roma Street strip is steeped in history dating back to the city’s earliest periods, but despite its heritage Roma Street’s contemporary hospitality scene is yet to flourish on a level comparable to the CBD’s other major promenades. Mr Luxford’s is a brand-new boozer looking to add another option for Roma Street workers, taking inspiration from the area’s history and pairing it with a concise offering of cocktails, Asian-inspired eats and casual vibes. more

Give ‘em the old razzle dazzle – the eye-popping geometric exhibition coming to QAG

Let’s get one thing straight – there’s something truly magical about the science of geometry. Usually something so clinical is hard to be inspired by, but the certain art of tricking the eye with the basic tools of colour and form is actually quite special. A new exhibition coming to the Queensland Art Gallery is built around the very premise of using deceptively simple strategies to blow our minds visually. Geometries brings together a collection of artworks that are bound to make you stare – and maybe even wonder just what the heck you’re looking at (in the best possible way). more

Brisbane City Council’s Green Heart Fair returns for its 10th year

There is no doubt Brisbane has been taking steps towards better practices to reduce the effect of our collective eco-footprint. We’ve seen plastic straws banned along with the growth of reusable coffee cups and shopping bags, which is a great start to what we hope will be an ongoing global effort to make a change. This year Brisbane City Council is celebrating ten years of Green Heart Fair, our city’s biggest sustainability festival. Join the free festival on Sunday June 2 at 7th Brigade Park to celebrate the growth of Brisbane’s growing green thumb and learn more tips and ticks to ensure a bright future for our city. more

Fun, food, fashion and family vibes – the winter race day shaking up its offering

The world of racing can seem kind of regimented from the outside – you’ve got horses, suits, fancy frocks and flowing wine, but what else? It’s definitely not the sort of event you usually turn to for a family day out … or is it? Once again, Tattersall’s Racing Club is proving that you don’t have to stick to tradition to have a good time. Its annual Tiara Race Day is galloping into the Eagle Farm Racecourse on Saturday June 22 to bring food, fashion, fierce competition and family-friendly vibes all wrapped up in one huge day. more
