Salisbury welcomes chic coffee specialists Supernumerary Coffee

To describe something as supernumerary is to say it's in excess or above the requisite number required. When Robertson locals and ardent coffee lovers Simon Flanagan and Chin Wu decided to open a specialty brew-slinging nook of their own, they knew they were entering a scene already flush with terrific coffee shops. While labelling their brand-new caffeine spot excessive may seem self-effacing, Simon and Chin's Supernumerary Coffee is named thus with tongue placed firmly in cheek. As any serious sipper knows, you can never have enough top-notch coffee sources, especially when the experience on offer is as considered and polished as Salisbury's newest pitstop. more

Lamington Markets set to revitalise Lutwyche Road with integrated mixed-use development

Hold on to your hats Brisbane – this one is going to be big! Ambitious plans have been submitted to council to redevelop the Inner North Busway site on Lutwyche Road into a large-scale transit-oriented mixed-use development and marketplace known as Lamington Markets. The proposed project will incorporate a fresh food hall, a variety of retail spaces such as a hotel/microbrewery, boutique cinema complete with candy bar and event space, and urban-farm restaurant, a stand-alone three-storey office building, short-term accommodation, health services and two residential apartment buildings. more

Sip brilliantly with LARQ’s self-cleaning water bottle

Reusable bottles are great – not only are they better for the environment than single-use plastic ones, but if you carry one, you're ten times more likely to drink more water than if you weren't carrying one and are one thousand times more attractive! Okay, we made those last two up but the point remains that reusable bottles are pretty darn great. In fact, the only real downside to reusable bottles is having to remember to actually clean it from time to time. If you've been known to be a bit lax on the old maintenance regime, say hello to LARQ. more

Stow your stuff in a stylish (and sustainable) bag from Simétrie

It was a case of once you know, you know for Melbourne's Simone Agius. Working in the industry, Simone became increasingly dissatisfied with fast fashion and the devastating impact our fashion choices were having on makers as well as the environment and set out to source an alternative. She sought to strike more of a balance between aesthetics and ethics and so began the Simétrie story. If you appreciate minimalist design, sustainable materials and honest production, read on. more

We'll admit it, there's few things in life that spark pure, unbridled joy more than a three day weekend. That's right folks, there's no need to set an early alarm or meal-prep on Sunday night – we have got a whole extra day for sleeping in, sipping cocktails and enjoying general splendour! To make things easy, we've rounded up the finest events happening across Brisbane from January 24 to 27, from Australiana-themed brunches to Lunar New Year festivities. Cheers to the long weekend! more
