As the heat of summer approaches—and the fact that there are literally only ten weeks until Christmas (we're shocked. SHOCKED)—we're thrilled to be able to order iced lattes again, break out our tank tops (err, maybe we'll pass on this one) and revel in all the kick-ass Brisbane events popping up all over the joint! 

So gather your most favourite chums, cancel your 'already planned' plans, and get stuck in to 13 awesome things to do this weekend in Brisbane. Thank us later (we know you'll want to).  

All Weekend

Beenleigh's Halloween Maze 

Thrill seekers, listen up - because a Halloween Maze is coming on Friday the 13th! Forget Freddie Kruger and all oujia boards...Beenleigh Historical Village seriously has us sorted for this black Friday. We seriously couldn't think of a better way than spending this Friday tempting fate (sarcasm levels: high). 

When: October 13th to October 28th
Where: Beenleigh Historical Village

Saturday 14th October 

SoHo Yoga Open Day

A glass of bubbles, vegan treats all paired with Yoga to raise money for Farm Animal Rescue? Gosh, we just could not think of anything more satisfying! From 8am, enjoy a yoga or pilates class to unwind for the day and even go in the draw to win a month's worth of free classes at SoHo. Get those bikini bods ready... Summer's nearly here! 

When: October 14th, 8am–5.30pm
Where: Soho Yoga, Fortitude Valley

Free Food Night At Atticus Finch

With the warmer weather approaching ever so quickly, Atticus Finch have come up with the perfect way for us to try their new menu... to deem it all, FREE! We're pretty chuffed 'cause their last menu was already top-notch, so we're expecting big things. Go in for a drink (or five) and - it's as simple as that - your guaranteed free meals until 8pm. Yes please!

When: October 14th, from 5pm
Where: Atticus Finch Cafe

Pop-Up Succulent Sale

Coffee and succulents, would you rather spent your saturday morning any other way? Those cute little cacti that we all love so much (cause, they basically look after themselves) will be in abundance this weekend at St Mary's School and are 100% for the taking - for dirt cheap! PSA: BYO bandaids, those little critters hurt! 

When: October 14th, from 8am
Where: St Mary's Of The Cross School, Windsor

Harry Potter Trivia Night

Accio, Brisbane! Test your Harry Potter skills with Hotel West End's Harry Potter Trivia Night, because after our last recap of the saga for the 15th time, we seriously want to relive it just once more. Test your luck at taking out best dressed (without the invisibility cloak). BYO broomsticks, of course!

When: October 14th, 6pm–10pm
Where: Hotel West End
For more info, click here.

Sunday 15th October 

Annual Craft And Gift Fair

This year's fair is seriously expected to be the biggest yet, and we aren't complaining. Stock up on the best jewellery, cards, textiles, millinery, quilting, sewing machines, ceramic buttons and candles Brisbane has to offer! Prepare to flesh out your inner creative - we know you want to. 

When: October 15th
Where: Quota, Carindale

$20 Bottomless Mimosas

What's better than one mimosa? Multiple mimosas, of course! Join us at the Brass Barrel this Saturday for endless mimosas to cure our heat-wave thirst for just $20. (Well... almost endless). You'll know where to find us!

Dalrymple Wine Dinner At Chu the Phat 

Six glasses of wine and a three course banquet all at our fave Chu the Phat... is this real life?!

But don't expect to leave that way!

Wednesday 18th October  

$10 Burgers 

Nothing quite tugs on our heart strings like a good $10 burger from The Brass Barrel. From 5pm every Wednesday, our prayers will be answered - in the form of a juicy patty of course. Because we could seriously never have enough burgers in our life. 

When: October 18th, 5pm-9pm
Where: The Brass Barrel

Lifecycle Wine and Cheese Ladies Workshop

Because there's really no better excuse than to indulge over the finest wine and cheese while learning how to maintain your bike. For just $10 per person, learn valuable skills at Lifecycle... and get amongst all that Camembert. Cheese, wine and bikes - there's really no better way to prepare that bikini bod for summer.

When: October 18th, 6pm-8pm
Where: Lifecycle Garage & Bespoke
For more info, click here.

The Simpsons Trivia

What's more overwhelming than the fact there are only 10 weeks until Chrissy? Five hundred and twenty two episodes of possible questions in The Simpsons Trivia. Test your knowledge of everyone's favourite American family (sorry, Phil Dunphy) over a cheeky burrito and beer at Beach Burrito. Score!

Forget Oktoberfest, Barktoberfest is here! On Saturday October 28th, the Carseldine Markets will be organising a pet's day out for all our furry friends, four legged or otherwise.
