But first, tequila – Margarita Margarita launches a classic margarita mix

When Friday rolls around and we're waiting for the sun to set, there's no better drink (in our humble opinion) to welcome in the weekend than a classic margarita. The folks behind Australia's only mobile marg bar, Margarita Margarita, wholeheartedly agree with us and have whipped up a classic marg mix to make our at-home cocktail shaking a little easier – and a whole lot tastier. more

Get your stocking stuffed at sizzling comedy show A Very Naughty Christmas

Christmas is just around the corner and we can hear your collective sigh of relief from here. We're ready to clock off for a couple of weeks, chuck on the ultimate festive flick (it's Die Hard, don't even try to argue it) and settle in with some hot cocoa (aka a hot Milo with a dash of Baileys). If you're keen to add a dash(er) of raunchy entertainment to your Christmas shenanigans then we suggest you dance(r) and prance(r) over to Brisbane Powerhouse to catch everyone’s favourite adults-only yuletide production, A Very Naughty Christmas. This holiday-themed comedy concert is back to tickle your tinsel for its fifth year from December 9–19 – and its cast is definitely on Santa's naughty list. more
