So come along from 9am-1pm!

Bakery Lane After Party | Bakery Lane

Once you're all marketed out and in need of refreshment, stick around for the official Bakery Lane after party, hosted by Laruche. This rad laneway event party kicks off at 3pm, with Laruche and brand new little sister venue Kiosk taking over Bakery Lane. Featuring a DJ set from Mitzi, Sydney band, Olympic Ayres playing live, and Kiosk providing a sneak preview of their new menu (and a few tasty beverages thrown in for good measure), this party is sure to be a doozy. And for the seasoned party animals among us (who, me?), feel free to hang around and dance the night away―the party kicks on until 12pm!

New York Soiree | Willow & Spoon

Willow & Spoon’s monthly themed night is back again, and this time it’s a New York Soiree. So channel your inner Blair Waldorf and get set for a good old-fashioned three-course meal in Willow & Spoon’s newly renovated garden area. Bookings are essential, so secure your table pronto!

Ok, Brisbanites, picture this. A Doughnut Time “OG” glazed doughnut, with fried banana, bacon, peanut butter, maple syrup, and Chur Burger’s signature crispy pork belly. Erm, yes please!. If the sound of this incredible creation makes your stomach flip, then we’d recommend you get yourself to Chur Burger for the official launch of ‘The Elvis’ Burger: An ingenious collaboration between Chur Burger and Doughnut Time, The Elvis will only be on sale from 3pm until sold out!
