Things to do in Brisbane this weekend

Want to hear a funny joke? Brisbane weather at the moment. Although we can take small comfort in the fact that we won’t be getting as utterly punished as last weekend, it’s still a certified scorcher on the cards. This is no excuse to become a recluse! From aquatic obstacle courses to mouth-watering meat feasts, we’ve tracked down some top activities to keep you occupied on the February 16–19 weekend. more

Stock up on goodies at South Bank’s new grocer The Pantry on Grey

Like most visitors to South Bank we’ve been gradually craning our necks further skyward, watching as Southpoint nears closer and closer to completion. We can give our necks rest for the moment, as some of the development’s first retailers are on the cusp of opening their doors this Friday. The Pantry on Grey is an expansive and modern providore that is taking a multi-faceted approach to the grocery scene. From cold-pressed juice and cheese to bouquets of flowers and locally sourced meat – The Pantry on Grey has just about anything you could want on your trip to the shops, plus everything you didn’t know you needed until now. more

Revel in punk-rock rebellion at Green Day’s American Idiot

If you’ve ever been near a radio, chances are you’ve heard of a little band called Green Day. The trio, fronted by the incomparable Billie Joe Armstrong, is known worldwide for making some of the most recognisable punk-rock jams to come out of a 30-year strong career. Not content with just ruling the airwaves, Billie Joe thought he would try his hand at creating a musical – turns out he’s really good at that, too. American Idiot will burst onto the QPAC stage from Thursday February 23, weaving songs from the iconic Green Day album into a rock solid narrative that packs way more than a punch. more

From breakfast to beer o’clock – Fortitude brings all-day bites to the Valley

Have you heard the word? You know, the F word? No, not that word – we’re referring to Fortitude, the newest joint to open up off Wickham Street in Fortitude Valley. If you’ve yet to experience Fortitude for yourself, perhaps the following can entice you – poke bowls, BBQ pork tacos, three-cheese croque monsieurs, boozy brunch cocktails and a menu dedicated to G&Ts. With a bistro and bar menu unlike any we’ve seen to date, Fortitude has got the lot – and we haven’t even told you about half of it. more

Tiny therapy puppers and turtle escapes – five feel-good stories you might have missed

After the recent heatwave we think it’s totally excusable to feel a bit lethargic this week. The sun seems to be sapping our energy, which means that when we have to work up motivation to get things done we find our inspiration resources tapped. This week we are bringing you an energy boost in the form of good news, including stories of stupidly adorable therapy puppies, baby elephants, turtles on the run and Rihanna turning up at the Grammy Awards. Stay cool out there, people! more

Strut around in some fetch new Mean Girls-themed socks by Foot Cardigan

Okay, we know – we never did make ‘fetch’ happen, but it wasn’t for lack of trying! Our inner Gretchen Weiners screamed for joy when we heard news of Foot Cardigan’s new sock range taking inspiration direct from the best teen movie of the past 20 years. These aren’t regular socks – they’re cool socks. Grab a few pairs for when you are on the go, Glen Coco. more

The round-up: ten cheap inner-city lunches for a tenner or less

Put your hands up if you’ve ever experienced this harsh reality bite – payday is still a few days away and you’ve been stung by a few unexpected costs (or maybe you indulged in a costly weekend on the town), reducing your bank balance to a shell of its former glory. We’ve all walked down Struggle Street before, but any thrifty eaters will tell you that it’s not the end of the world. If you can’t stomach another stretch of mi goreng for lunch, we’ve put together a nifty list of spots to grab a bite for ten Dollarydoos or less. Mark our words – the cheaper the grub doesn’t mean the lesser the quality. You can get a bomb feed in Brisbane’s inner city for just a tenner and here is the proof. more
