Moose & Gibson

Do we have any Block fans out there? I’m sure there are. If you’re like me, it’s difficult to go out on a Sunday night because you’ll sit there the whole time going, “Did it record? What if it didn’t. What if it’s not recording.” When The Block is in...

Sixes and Sevens

Anyone else always feel scruffy when they’re on James St? Come on, you know what I mean. Despite putting care into your outfit, using a bit of hairspray, maybe even putting some face slap on – you still can’t help but feel a little daggy next to all the other...

Claret House Wine Bar

I love me a good hot chip. They’re hearty, salty, carby, and just damn good (especially with a wine or beer). One usually expects to find good chips in a pub, or a dodgy seafood takeaway joint. But I have found them in a chic, hip wine bar/restaurant. It’s true – Claret...

Alfredo’s

What’s happening to Brisbane lately? Recently, we tried to get into three different places for dinner and drinks, and at each place we were turned away as they were all full. What happened to this sleepy little town? It got even crazier when we decided to try our luck at Alfredo’s. Brisbane:...

Valentine’s Day 2014

I like V Day! Who doesn’t enjoy watching everyone walk around with big, moony smiles on their faces for one day a year? Commercialised it may be, but damnit, it makes people squeal and smile so I’m all for it. If you like it too, here are a few ideas...

Papa Jack’s

I love what’s happening to the Valley lately! Oh sure, it’s always had “stuff”, but I’m loving all of the fun new restos and bars that are popping up – especially since they’re all walking distance from eachother. So I can go blow all my cash on organic yogurt at...

Peng You Opens at Gasworks

Yup, yet another funky resto has popped up at Newstead’s Gasworks! Although it opened in November last year, Peng You China Kitchen and Bar had its official launch last night to coincide with Chinese New Year. Promising a modern stance on traditional Asian dining, Peng You features such favourites as...

White Jam

There are two kinds of people in this world: those who love astro turf, and those who hate it. It’s a seemingly innocent thing, but astro turf can really get some people fired up. D hates it. His common reaction when we see it is to roll his eyes and...

Australia Day 2014

Sorry, you might have difficulty reading that title – I meant ‘STRAYA Day. There’s something about this glorious public holiday that just makes us want to eat well, drink plenty, and wear the flag on our bodies in any which way possible. Here are some ideas on how you can...

Artie & Mai

I know a lot of people were devastated when the beloved Stockholm Syndrome shut its doors recently. But guess what? I’m giving y’all a belated Christmas present (or a really, really early one). I’m giving you news about Stockholm’s super-cute, younger, hipper replacement! You’re welcome. Artie & Mai has taken...
