The Weekend Series: catch up on all the big announcements from San Diego Comic-Con

The weekend just gone was a big one for anyone that loves blockbuster movie and television announcements. San Diego Comic-Con is one of the biggest yearly sci-fi and pop-culture conventions in the world, with production studios using the event to make huge announcements on hot properties in the realm of cinema and TV. This year was no different, with new trailers being released for dozens of highly anticipated shows and films. If you were too busy on the weekend to refresh your YouTube homepage, we’ve compiled a list of the must-watch trailers so you aren’t out of the loop when your friends and co-workers start raving with excitement. more

The round-up: Brisbane City’s influx of new openings

We don’t know if you’ve noticed, but there has been a lot of activity taking place in The City of late. We’re not talking about the hustle and bustle of the daily commute or the feverish hordes of shoppers hitting the big retailers, we’re talking about food and drink. In the past month alone, Brisbane City has welcomed a huge influx of bars, restaurants and cafes into its midst, proving that the inner-city is still at the forefront of Brisbane’s top-notch dining scene. If you’ve been meaning to check out what’s fresh (and openings still to come), we’ve assembled a handy guide to make your food crawl easier. more

From oodles of noodles to retro parties and even old mate Neil DeGrasse Tyson, we’ve rounded up the best things to see and do in Brisbane on the July 20–23 weekend. more

Reach new heights at Macgregor’s Sky Climb obstacle hub

If you’ve ever wanted to touch the sky whilst coming up in the spot looking extra fly, we’ve got just the place for you. No, it’s not a nightclub, and you’re going to have to wear a harness (you can still look fly wearing a harness), but this spot is one of the best places in town to get elevated. Sky Climb is a brand new hub of climbing obstacles from the minds behind Sky Zone and Holey Moley Golf Club – offering fun challenges for climbing beginners and veterans from Friday July 21. more

Feast and frolic for four days when the James Street Food & Wine Trail returns

The only thing more exciting than an adventure is an adventure involving food. What’s not to love about grabbing a map, assembling a crew and setting off to distant lands in search of treasure? When you sub out gold and loot for delicious eats, and distant lands for one of Brisbane’s favourite foodie precincts, you get the James Street Food and Wine Trail. This beloved culinary escapade returns from July 27–30 for its sixth incarnation, providing a four-day tasting plate of the best brews and chews from the iconic strip. more

Let someone else handle the cooking tonight with FoodByUs

Having a personal chef is definitely one of our life goals, but in reality it will most likely remain a flight of fancy. The next best thing is FoodByUs – a new service that is letting hungry individuals order home cooked meals made by locals. That’s right – home chefs can spread the love by cooking for strangers, and those too busy to cook for themselves can still enjoy healthy and hearty dishes easily. more

No apologies – Ellery brings soul to life with its rich and bold pre-fall collection

The word ‘soul’ is a pretty broad word with a range of loaded meanings, most of which are intangible. What does it mean to really have soul and how could one possibly translate that to the visual realm? One lady who personifies the sound of soul is Nina Simone, the badass 1960s songstress who was the epitome of the word in all facets of her life. It was the lure of her duality and power that inspired Ellery’s outstanding pre-fall collection, combining both boldness and fragility to push the brand’s aesthetic to new frontiers. more

Sip, slurp, chew and chomp your way through the mammoth Night Noodle Markets offering

Fortune favours the bold, my friends. We understand that culinary risks don’t always pay off (mostly when you’re trying to get creative in the kitchen with that mystery condiment you bought months ago), which is why it’s best left to the experts. Running as part of Brisbane’s Good Food Month, the beloved Night Noodle Markets are returning to South Bank from Wednesday July 19 to serve up the sights, sounds and smells of an Asian hawker market – with a few twists and surprises thrown in for good measure. more
