This Week In Brisbane is chock-a-block full of events. We've got new menus at some of your fave restaurants, trivia nights, and creeping through other people's wardrobes. Here's the best of Brisbane this week. 

Monday 16th

New Menu | Alfred and Constance

We were lucky enough to be one of the first to try A&C's new Summer menu, and it was truly delicious! There are fresh new starters, share plates and mains to tantalise your taste buds. But don't worry, they've kept some of the old favourites on the menu as well. We particularly loved the duck breast with watermelon, Persian feta, and toasted cashews.

Where | Alfred and Constance
Price | Varied

New Menu | Esq. at Esquire

The Chefs at Esq. have nailed it again with their new menu, which just launched this month. Tailored to the working crowd, Esq. are serving up quality meals at prices that won't break the budget. We can't get enough of the sashimi, and the coal-roasted steak. This menu is now also available at Esquire, for lunch only.

Where | Esq. at Esquire
Price | Starters form $12, Mains from $25

Tuesday 17th

Man vs. Bear Trivia

Trivia Night at Black Bear Lodge is back! This time with a Tarantino Edition (the best edition yet?), to test your knowledge on the great man's cinematic skills. There are prizes for best dressed, giveaways, and blueberry pancakes. Heck yeah.

Free Haircuts | Jimmy Rod's
Gents, if you're looking to get your ears lowered, head in to the new Jimmy Rod's barber shop in Gasworks Plaza because they're handing them out for free from 10am-2pm today. (And they'll do a much better job than your Mum.)

The Wizard of Oz | Roundhouse Theatre

Promising a fantasy equal to, but disturbingly different from, the Oz we know and love. This world premiere production will lead you to a place beyond the rainbow. And don't we all need that?
Where | Roundhouse Theatre, QUT Theatre Republic

Price | from $25

Free Burrito | Salsa's

Is there anything better than a burrito? Yep. A free burrito! Get down to Salsa's at Gasworks Plaza today and treat yourself to a free burrito! That means it will cost you nothing! (We nearly wanted to keep this secret to ourselves so we didn't have to wait in a huge line. But, hey, we're nice.)

Where | Salsa's
Price | Free

Thursday 19th

I, Malvalio | Brisbane Powerhouse

Handing the spotlight to one of Shakespeare's most famous clown characters, this hysterically funny one-man production tells the classic story of bullying, prudery, and practical jokes.

Where | Brisbane Powerhouse

Price | $30

Wardrobe Rummage | Normanby Hotel

If you're looking to clear out your closet, or maybe grab a few new additions, get the girls together for a night of shopping and cocktails at The Normanby's Wardrobe Rummage. Pick up some pre-loved bargains, or sell your unwanted items.

Where | Normanby Hotel

Price | Free to browse
