The best thing about Monday's would have to be going through the calendar and finding out what's on this week in Brisbane. Luckily, we've done the hard work for you! Here's what's happening in Brisneyland this week.
The Box in West End is one of our fav' little creative spaces—we love their monthly flea markets. And we now love that they're bringing back their Sourdough Workshop in September. The workshop includes tasters of different breads, recipes, and a starter kit to get home and start baking your own!

This is a great concept put together by Moda. They understand there are many wine collectors and connoisseurs in Brisbane who have beautiful wine, but many restaurants don't give collectors the chance to bring them in. Moda are giving you that opportunity as their chef prepares a 4-course degustation dinner and you BYO the wine. No corkage. Everybody wins!

Pearl Café know how hard hump day's can be. It's that tipping point from mid-week to the tail end of the week. Throughout spring the team at Pearl Café will be serving up a Byron Bay free-range suckling pig for you to feast on. A plate of pig and chardonnay-roasted spuds is so cheap you'll squeal.

Now this is cool, if only it were a little closer to the CBD . . .. . . Typography is one of those on-trend art forms at the moment. Hand-drawn fonts and typefaces, point-size, adjust your leading, tracking, and kerning. If I've got you lost then maybe the conference isn't for you.
