Once again, the time has come for us Brainiac’s to put our enormous heads together to solve all of your weekly issues. We like to think of ourselves as your inner monologue, spirit-guides or hypothetical older siblings who show you the proper way to navigate life. And if that involves having cheat days or drinking yourself to the point of asking where your Uber driver was born—so be it!
The weather is warming up and so is your love life (hopefully)! Why not venture out into this wonderful world and treat yourself and your special someone to some real authentic Italian goodness.
Where you need to go this weekend: starters, mains and desserts are covered here.
Woah there Aries, the sun is telling me that you’ve been flying a bit too close to it? Maybe going overboard on the early Christmas shopping perhaps? Let’s just take it down a notch and get back to the basics.
Where you need to go this weekend: quality you can count on here.
Hey guys, you know we love you, we adore you, we’re totally crushing on your new hair style. But honey, sweetie, sugar, when was the last time you had some fun? Shake off Neptune’s gloomy vibe and do something we guarantee you haven’t done before.
Where you need to go this weekend: have the night you won’t remember / can’t forget here.
Girl/guy, you are looking mighty fine, I don’t know if it’s the break-up or your new gym routine, but something is really working for you right now. Saturn might pull at you this week and we say you should pull your girls together for a smashing night out.
Where you need to go this weekend: You didn’t know you needed this until now.
Things might seem more chaotic than usual this week. Things may go missing, plans might be cancelled, you might actually answer the phone when your dad calls. In the midst of all this confusion we want you to be taken care of.
Where you need to go this weekend: eat here until it all makes sense again.
What a week! We don’t have to tell you how many curveballs you’ve been thrown (even though we totally know). But hopefully, this new week brings an overall sense of calm and serenity. And if not, we know the perfect escape.
Where you need to go this weekend: the most delicious hiding places.
Don’t shoot the messenger, but, your housemate is definitely (potentially not) going to break your washing machine on Thursday…at 5pm…right before you realise you have to wash your work uniform before your shift tomorrow. But, lucky for you, we have an amazing solution. Like it’s so good that you might want to break it yourself.
Where you need to go this weekend: coffee and clean clothes. That’s right.
This week promises an abundance of laughter and fun. If you have young cousins, kids or friends with kids now is the best time for a play date. If you have no access to small children (that did not sound so creepy in my head) grab your besties and have brunch.
Where you need to go this weekend: adorable and happy times here to bring out your inner child.
Life may send you in all different directions this week. So why not stop and smell the roses? Or, better yet, sit down and have a drink.
Where you need to go this weekend: if you find yourself in unfamiliar surroundings, just follow your compass to here.
I’m sensing rage? No. Fury? Perhaps. Agony? Apparently so. The magic 8 ball of life is certainly throwing some undecided answers your way. The only way out is to do something for yourself. Which, in typical Urban List fashion, follows buying brunch in unexpected colours.
Where you need to go this weekend: try something new here!
Neptune might be circling your stars right about now, and that can tend to put one of balance. If you feel a little lost, homesick or worried this week, you know who’s to blame. What you need is to go outside! But who actually goes outside anymore? Especially when you can get food and drink inside that has trees too? Win-win!
Where you need to go this weekend: outside is inside here and you will be too.
You always thought life would be like a sit-com when you were growing up, but now it feels like everyone is working, or busy with their family or other yawn-worthy activities. Don’t give up your dream of hanging out in a bar that feels designed by your spirit.
Where you need to go this weekend: this bar has a quirk that is sure to tickle your fancy.
