From rooftop soirees to seafood feasts and Mr Brightside parties, we’ve rounded up everything worth checking out on the November 23–26 weekend in Brisbane. more

Interstate date – get a taste of Melbourne in Brisbane for one night only

There’s a reason that so many of us Brisbane folk have a big ol’ raging crush on Melbourne – it’s just a really bloody awesome city. Whilst we will always have love for the sunshine state, it doesn’t stop us from drooling over the art, music and food from Victoria’s proud capital. If it’s been a while since your last interstate sojourn, we have some exciting news for you – Melbourne is coming to us! On Wednesday November 29, Lefty’s Old Time Music Hall will be transformed into a micro-version of our coolest southern sibling for Melbourne After Dark. more

Calling all night owls – one of Brisbane’s biggest shopping precincts is staying up late!

For many of us nine-to-fivers, late-night shopping is something of a divine miracle sent from the heavens as a small reprieve from the hell of trying to cram everything into lunch breaks and weekends. With Christmas approaching at an anxiety-inducing rate, it’s important to be aware of everything we can do to save both time and money. This is why we practically jumped for joy when we found out that from Thursday November 23, Skygate and DFO Brisbane will be easing our festive woes with some late-night trading action. more

Fire up your tastebuds for Lick! Ice Cream’s Morningside arrival

Ice-cream brings people together. It’s a fact. Take Lick! Ice Cream for example – fans of the iconic Graceville creamery travel from as far as the Gold Coast to fill up their eskies with delicious ice-cream. The past few years has seen demand skyrocket for Lick! Ice Cream’s flavours, and now supply is set to double with the opening of a new location in Morningside today, Wednesday November 22. If you’ve got a hankering for something sweet, Lick! will surely do the trick. more
