Welcome back Monday; gosh we’ve missed you… There’s likely a fair few of us (still) nursing our Saturday night headaches but that should not mean we need retreat like hermits into the pit of reclusion, there’s a whole lot of things to do in Brisbane this week—and some don’t even involve handing over cash!
From pop culture trivia to food trucking and advance movie screenings (because we’re pretty damn important), here are 5 very awesome things to do in Brisbane this week.
Alliance Francaise French Film Festival

Food Trucks Of The World Lunch At King George Square
A fortnight is far too long in our eyes to wait for Brisbane’s best food truck contingent, The Street Food Depo to return to the city. This Tuesday, gather your work family and make tracks to King George Square and tuck in to some of the most delicious truck fare you’ve ever tasted. Beats that tuna salad you had in the fridge back at the office. For more info, click here.

Gossip Girl Trivia At Beach Burrito
Release your inner Serena and Blair for a night of 5th Avenue fun and frolics at Beach Burrito in Fortitude Valley.

Probably the most iconic anime film of all time, Ghost In The Shell’s live action re-make is the stuff of movie-lovers dreams.
