Breakfast Creek is set to get a green bridge so start lacing up those walking shoes

One of the most enticing traits of Brisbane is our city's abundance of scenic walkways. There is no better way to kick off your day than with a stroll by the riverside and one of our favourite places to do this is around Breakfast Creek. Soon, we’ll be able to make tracks a little further, as final designs for a proposed Breakfast Creek green bridge connecting Newstead to Albion have been lodged for approval. more

In carbs we crust – five garlic bread recipes inspired by the world’s most beloved loaf

We don’t mean to exaggerate, but here at The Weekend Edition, we would lay down our lives for garlic bread*. It’s more than a side dish or a mop for the bolognese that gets left behind in the bottom of the bowl – it’s the glue that holds society together. From those who need a little more pep with their pizza order through to the staunch vegetarians with little else to eat at a party, the Golden Loaf is the one thing that will blow up the skirt of even the fussiest eater. It unites gourmands and bogans alike with its crunch, softness and flavour profile – garlic bread knows not of the perils of a class divide. Anyway, you didn’t come here for an essay on garlic bread – you came here to find ways to get a bit jazzy with it, so let’s dive in! Behold, our five favourite ways to level up your GB experience. more

Australia’s top roasters come together at new online marketplace ’Feind Coffee

We hope that we speak for the majority of our readership when we say coffee is no longer a luxury, but rather, a necessity. But that doesn't mean our daily dose of caffeine can't be luxurious – quite the opposite, in fact. There is no need to settle for ordinary coffee when Australia is home to some of the finest coffee roasters in the world. Thankfully, a certain team of coffee enthusiasts share our same passion for the holy java bean and have created a website where a roster of top-notch homegrown roasters have come to congregate. Say hello to ’Feind Coffee, a new online boutique full to the brim with coffee worth pouring over – from specialty instant varieties and perky pods to incredibly rare filters and enlivening espressos. more

Stone & Wood has stirred up an Ekka-inspired strawberry-sundae beer and you can score some at its lockdown drive-through

Another year, another cancelled Ekka. Helping to keep our chins up is Brisbane brewery Stone & Wood, which has decided to help fundraise for The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation by brewing a strawberries-and-cream-flavoured beer inspired by the Ekka’s iconic strawberry sundae. Making it easier to nab this sweet nectar (and more COVID-safe), the team are opening up a special lockdown drive-through this weekend. more

This handy website lets you know what’s within 10 km of your house so you can step outside in peace

We're no strangers to a lockdown here in Queensland, but this particular lockdown is stricter than ones before and sometimes new restrictions can be a little bit confusing – especially when it comes to the 10-km rule. If you need to know which shops, parks and essential services are within a 10-km radius of your own home, you’ll be happy to learn that there is a website for that, and it’s called KM From Home. more
