Here are six awesome events to check out this week in Brisbane.

Tuesday 19 June
General Knowledge Trivia At Pig ‘N’ Whistle Riverside
We all have that friend who seems to know everything about, well, everything. We say put them to the test this Tuesday night at Pig ‘n’ Whistle’s general knowledge trivia night. Hosted by trivia masters Man vs Bear there’s some serious laughs to be had but more importantly, there’s money up for grabs—$100, to be precise. Not too shabby! Either way entry is free and you’re sure to have a great night. Book your spot, here.
All-You-Can-Eat-Tacos At Mucho Mexicano
If trivia isn’t your thing but tacos are (same!), then bring on Taco Tuesday at Mucho Mexicano! For just $25 get into their weekly all-you-can-eat taco night: two-hours, much food, good times—it’s cheap as chips and it’s delicious. Win, win! Gather your amigos and throw down the gauntlet. If you don’t want to stuff yourselves silly, then just dig into the fiesta at your own pace before you roll on home. Book your table, here.
The Gypsy Cats At Brisbane City Hall
There’s nothing like some smooth jazz to warm you up on these cold Brisbane days. It may be a bit brisk, but The Gypsy Cats will warm the ears and soul in next to no time! Playing as part of the Lords Mayor’s City Hall Concert Series in Brisbane City Hall, the Italian-Born trio’s reputation precedes them, known for filling out venues! You can find out more information here.
Thursday 21 June
Winter Solstice Celebrations At Brisbane Botanic Gardens
Today is the day where everything after becomes a little brighter: it marks the day where it is the shortest day and longest night. (Some might say winter is over before it’s even begun…) The Brisbane Botanic Gardens are hosting a fabulous Winter Solstice Celebration, and you’re invited! Lantern making is on the evening’s agenda, as is taking an early evening walk through the stunning CBD gardens. You can get all the details, here.
Friday 22 June
The Finders Keepers Brisbane Market At The Brisbane Showgrounds
Returning again to the Brisbane Showgrounds, The Marquee is hosting the epic Finders Keepers Markets Autumn/Winter 2018 tour. Brining back some of their most iconic stalls from local and national creatives, this year they’re also bringing in some fresh hot talent for us to suss out. With over 200 stalls we will definitely be shopping until we drop. More like a festival (but for shopping, YAY!) Finders Keepers is brining all things design, art, live music, all the community vibes and of course our favourite good food! Get all the information, here.
