Well folks, Autumn has officially set in, and even though it's still 30 degrees outside (thanks, Brisbane), we are already getting excited for the winter months. Unfortunately, though, winter has a bit of a bad rep: the cold nights, the flu, and the shorter days can make it a bit of a drab time. Seriously, having to sanitise your hands every 10 seconds to avoid the plague isn't fun.
Luckily for you guys, we have teamed up with the Brisbane Lions to show you how to break out of the winter rut and make the cooler months better than ever. So bust out your maroon, blue and gold merch and make sure you hit up these epic events for your best winter yet.
Check Out The Southside's Newest Foodie Venue
Ready to take your footy experience to the next level? Then be sure to check out The Gabba’s new viewing deck, The Verandah. The famous Brisbane Lions venue will be adding this awesome new deck to allow footy fans to take their viewing experience up a notch (quite a few notches, actually). Tickets for the Verandah are available here, so now you can watch your fave footy team (the Brisbane Lions, obviously) without any rowdy fans blocking your view. Oh, and there'll be some delicious food on offer, too. What are you waiting for—go get those tickets!
Go All Out At This Food Truck Pop-Up
Food lovers, this one is for you. Brand new foodie hub, The Block Party will be setting up shop outside The Gabba before some of the Brisbane Lions’ next games! They'll be delivering an epic line up of food trucks and pop-up bars, as well as some amazing live entertainment. Local favourite Salt Meats Cheese will be there serving up their iconic arancini, cured meats and Napoli-style pizzas, and will be joined by other Brissy fave truckers like Mr Burger, Mac From Way Back, Twisted Ice cream and Cheeseland. Trust us, this is one pre-footy party that you do not want to miss.
Head To Brisbane's Winter Wonderland
So winter pretty much isn't a thing here in Brisbane, but there's still plenty of reasons to celebrate the cooler months. And that is exactly what the Brisbane Lions are doing with their new party, Winterfest. Think food trucks and amazing live performances from Brisbane's best entertainers. So get the crew together and grab your best winter jacket (even if it's not cold), because you won't want to miss this winter wonderland.
Don't Miss The Brisbane Lions Face Off Against Their Rivals
Finally, make sure you get to AT LEAST one Brisbane Lions' game this footy season. They’ll be going up against the likes of Collingwood, Hawthorne, and Carlton, and this is set to be one of their best seasons yet. With The Gabba serving up the goods this year, now’s the time to get to a game. Enjoy new venues and events such as The Verandah and Winterfest, or fuel up on some pre-game deliciousness at The Block Party. This is going to be a great season for the Brisbane Lions (and for our taste buds), so make sure you get your tickets ASAP!
