Di Bella coffee

Brisbaneites are fiercely loyal to local coffee providers, and for good reason: our homegrown guys churn out some damn good stuff! Di Bella Coffee started roasting beans in the Brissie ‘burbs in 2002, and their products are now available in a slew of cafes around the city (not to mention from their own...

Stokehouse Brisbane

It’s getting really hot lately, isn’t it? Well, of course it is. You live in Brisbane. Don’t act so shocked. And yet every year we complain about the heat, spending our weekends in whatever venues are air-conditioned, and trying desperately to find cool breezes. Look, I’m going to make it...

Bacon washed bourbon cocktail 0

5th Element South Bank

There’s something quite magical about bacon. It’s cheap. It tastes good. You can use it in everything from breakfast, to pizza, to doughnuts. And now, you can use it in a cocktail too. This is 5th Element’s Barrel Aged Kentucky Breakfast ($17):   That’s bacon fat-washed Woodford Reserve and house...

Habitat West End Opens

I love a good beard. Proof: D had very strict rules not to shave for at least a week prior to our wedding. I would have preferred longer, but he complained of itchiness. I guess not making him go any longer was my wedding present to him. So what do beards...

Some nights (okay, most nights), I really don’t feel like cooking. I want to get home, get into my jammies, and munch on toast while watching The Real Housewives of X.  So when the folks at Menulog contacted me to see if I wanted to try out their online takeaway website,...

Chilliwow’s New Tex Mex Menu

We’re suckers for a good bit of Tex Mex, so when Chilliwow invited us to try their new Smokin’ BBQ Tex Mex Menu – well, we rocked up for dinner as early as we could, senior-citizen style, at 5pm. We started with a couple of Margaritas ($16 each), of course...

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...
