It's another jam-packed week, Urban Listers. We suggest you make the most of this gorgeous weather and head out to the many, many events around town this week. We're looking forward to Beer Week festivities and Regional Flavours next weekend! What's on your agenda?
Queensland Beer Week | Everywhere
It's the frothiest week of the year! Queensland Beer week is in full swing, with plenty of tastings, a chilli cook off, and whole days devoted to stout. For a full itinerary of events check out our guide to this ale celebration.
Weekday Lunch Offer | Stokehouse
Weekday lunch is sorted at Stokehouse. A divine main and glass of vino will only set you back $28 on a weekday, and, best of all, the insanely good view of the river is free!
Marcus Blake | The End
Catch Marcus, live and intimate at The End from 7:00pm.
The Neighbourhood Series | Pronto Bucci
Every week the gang at Pronto Bucci, those speedy Italian toasted sandwich wizards, are teaming up with folks from around the James Street neighbourhood to create a special soup, pasta, or panini/piada. This week their tasty collab' is with Health Place, and the toasted piada they're serving up has a divine filling of pulled pork, mozzarella, rocket, tomato and a hint of chilli.
State of Origin Game 3
Game three is going to be a real nail biter. If you can't catch the decider down South, head to The Regatta and get into the spirit, maroon style.
Jumpers and Jazz Festival Launch | Warwick
The Jumpers and Jazz Festival is kicking off in Warwick. Just two hours out of town, this festival promises to be ten amazing days of jazz, bonfires, mulled wine, great food, and of course, tree jumpers. Find the full program here.
