BSAF Artist Meet & Greet Party At Up On Constance
With the Brisbane Street Art Festival in full swing, take a rare opportunity to meet some of the country’s best street artists in the flesh. Brisbane rooftop bar, Up On Constance is hosting a laid back meet and greet with a handful of artists this Wednesday, along with live DJ sets, freshly shaken cocktails and the chance to rub shoulders with some pretty incredible creatives.
Dinner At Greenglass
Great news, folks; we can happily report that gorgeous French restaurant-come-wine-bar, Greenglass is now serving dinner! YES! Already nailing breakfast and lunch for the CBD set, stop by after work for a cheeky glass of vino paired with some incredible dishes. The menu will be changing regularly, but expect crowd-pleasing classic French fare plus a few incredible wild cards (tuna ceviche with grapefruit, anyone?).
Friendly Jordies At Brisbane Powerhouse
If you’re keen to dabble in a mid-week show, put this award-winner at the top of your wish list. Jordan Shanks is bringing his hilarious and achingly smart one-man show to the Powerhouse, covering off words of wisdom from over 300 self-help books. Get your tickets, and your jollies, here.

Come down to watch local craft beer legends battle it out on the burger front (and try some pretty rad local brews), plus get in on the action with a first-to-finish eating competition! The first to chow down the 5-stack burger wins a pack from Hoptart plus their exclusive chilli sauce. Happy days!
