The round-up: fill up on goodness at Brisbane’s best vegan spots

Put your presuppositions in the bin – plant-based food is not just salad and steamed vegetables. Vegan cuisine is becoming increasingly prominent due to the rise of dietary requirements and a conscientious focus of what we put in our bodies. For those of you who can’t stomach the thought of canning the cutlets and trashing the T-bones in favour of salad, please relax – we aren’t here to sway you to veganism. What we will say is that dining as a vegan can be hard in our predominantly meat-eating society, but also very rewarding – even if you love bacon and eggs. We’ve chosen to point out Brisbane’s best vegan spots well worth sampling. more

Practice Studio showcases the best of considered fashion and sustainable making

Australian consumers are making the shift to slow fashion in greater numbers, opting for handcrafted and sustainably crafted garments instead of mass-manufactured pieces from large conglomerates. The tricky aspect of slow fashion is discovering these artisan makers, many of whom are independent or small-scale operators. Fortitude Valley's Practice Studio is a unique resource for both designer and buyer – one part store and one part workroom, it aims to bridge the gap between emerging makers and those seeking consciously made clothing. more

Whilst you may have brought along multiple reusable coffee cups, they still have to place these in a disposable tray for you to carefully transport back to the office. Enter Stay tray, a reusable drink tray made from made from 100 percent recycled materials and the answer to our eco-friendly pleas. more

The round-up: Brisbane’s best spots to crack into crab and other crustaceans

There are few foodstuffs as quintessentially Australian as the trusty prawn, and barbecue season is perfect for chucking a few on the grill. That being said, there is more to the crustacean family than just prawns – we also go loco for lobster, cray cray for crayfish and bug out over Moreton Bay bugs. There are so many tasty morsels swimming about under the sea – we cast a net and have hauled in a list of spots to get your claws on some cracking crustaceans this seafood season. more

Hitting the clubs gets a new meaning at Wintergarden’s Holey Moley Golf Club

When Holey Moley Golf Club first broke onto the scene in 2016, it changed the game and redefined what was possible in the realm of hospitality-meets-entertainment concepts. More than three years on and Holey Moley bars are sprouting up everywhere, with more than 15 locations in Australian alone. Brisbane scored a second indoor putt-putt bar late last year when Holey Moley landed at the Wintergarden, giving the inner-city scene a lively hang that blends games of skill with a menu of decadent eats. more

What to drink when you’re not drinking – take your martini dry with Lyre’s booze-free spirits

You may be participating in Dry January or just detoxing from the festive season altogether, but for those of us sensible (and selfless) enough to bear the burden of being designated driver on a night out, the craving for a cocktail can be a moralistic tug-o-war. That's where Lyre's steps in – a range of delicious non-alcoholic spirits that help make a mean mocktail. more
