What’s on in Brisbane this weekend

Here are The Weekend Edition, we love a weekend. This should be obvious from the name of our publication, but sometimes this fact bears repeating, you know? Thus, you should take it from us when we say that we know what to do when the clock strikes 5:00 pm on a Friday. From craft beer festivals to postmodern jukeboxes and boozy brunches, we’ve done the legwork to find what’s happening in Brisbane on the September 21–24 weekend. more

The Weekend Series: Bitcoin, blockchain and bamboozlement – making sense of cryptocurrency

You’ve heard the buzz, read about it online and seen its logos pop up at shops and eateries, but what do you really know about Bitcoin? If you are like us, you are as clueless as a camel at the North Pole. Cryptocurrency has been increasing in prominence since being invented in 2009, but to us laypeople it hasn’t exactly become easier to understand. That being said, quite a few people are making a big deal out of this new technology, so we decided it would be a good idea to figure out what the heck it’s all about and see if we can break it down in a handy, easy-to-digest format. more

Sip smartly with the world’s first non-alcoholic spirit Seedlip

If you’re partaking in Sober October, volunteering to be the designated driver, are expecting a child, or you simply aren’t a drinker, there are plenty of valid reasons to not indulge on a night out. Short of a mocktail or soft drink, there’s not a whole lot on offer for non-drinkers these days, but one enterprising entrepreneur is looking to change the way we drink. Seedlip is a distilled non-alcoholic spirit that is earning popularity all over the globe as a sophisticated alternative to the sugary and sweet options available at most bars. more

There’s plenty to love about Italy and we all know it – from the joyful nature of its population to the absolutely amazing food, Italian culture has got it going on.
