Bottoms up – where to celebrate National Margarita Day in Brisbane

Ah, the humble margarita – what’s not to love? The classic Mexican concoction consisting of tequila, lime and triple sec is an absolute staple of any decent cocktail list. Considering how universally adored this beverage is, it makes perfect sense that margaritas have their own special day – February 22, to be exact. If you’re a fiend for a marg – be it frozen, shaken or straight up – we’ve found some spots around town that are celebrating National Margarita Day. Bust out your best party shirt and surrender to the sweet, sweet lure of the tequila temptress (responsibly, of course). more

Feel the love – Theo the Label brings an affordable spin to the ethical fashion market

More and more consumers are wising up to the fact that the fast fashion industry is problematic, which is a great realisation – but we still haven’t quite reached the stage where ethical threads are the norm. The fact that this market is still young comes with some challenges – there isn’t as much choice, the costs are quite high and a lot of styles tend to cross over without much variation. In her own journey towards more sustainable habits, Esther Kirwan recognised these shortcomings and founded Theo the Label – a project to reflect her own ethics blended with creative freedom. more

From sake and sushi to poke and popcorn shrimp, Yuzu & Co’s eye-popping selection of eats and drinks look to be a feast for the senses. more
