Teneriffe during the annual Teneriffe Festival At some point or another most of us will consider ditching the suburbs for the bright lights of an address that’s closer to Brisbane city. The reasons could be anything from wanting to cut down your daily commute into work, or maybe you just want to be closer to where the action is (whatever kind of action you’re into).
This post is sponsored by 99 Bikes. As we head towards the end of September, there is no doubt that spring has officially sprung here in Brisbane. We’ve waved good-bye to the freezing westerly winds, the weather is warming up and we have approximately 2 more months of heavenly weather before the start of the annual sweat-fest that is the Brisbane summer.
A bit of background If you’re a regular reader you’ll probably have noticed it’s been a while between date nights for The Chef and I. We’ve both been ridiculously busy with our day jobs – he’s been launching new a winter menu at his work and I’ve had projects out the wazoo plus a fair bit of travel.
Hello dear readers! Today we are officially half way through the 2015 – making it kind of like the mother of all hump-days. Today is also my birthday so I’ve given myself the day off blogging and instead have asked a lovely friend of mine, Robyna from The Mummy and the Minx, to write a post about something most of us battle with – work/life balance.
These days in Brisbane you can hardly blink without another American style burger place popping up. Which is fine with me – mainly because bad burgers are sort of like bad sex, in that even the bad ones are still pretty good…. Or so I’ve heard. Either way, the point is you’ll hear no burger bashing from me.
This Saturday 13th June is World Gin Day – and if you’re a fan of cocktails this is VERY good news indeed! Gin is such a versatile spirit that the list of cocktails you can make from it is pretty much endless. The finely balanced mix of “botanicals” (herbal elements) that give gin it’s distinctive flavour provide plenty of creative scope for bartenders.
Hold on to your hats Brisbane, because the Spiegeltent has blown into town bringing with it one of the craziest, most awe-inspiring shows we’ve ever had the pleasure of being shocked by…. Fresh from four years of sold out shows in Las Vegas, ABSINTHE arrived earlier this week to grab the city by the short and curlies (so to speak).
