This weekend in Brisbane we've handpicked a pretty sweet schedule, if we do say so ourselves. We've got cake, eating contests, markets, outdoor theatre, live music, even a trip back to the swinging sixties! There's never a dull moment in this town, so get moving this weekend, Brisbane! Here's what's on this weekend in Brisbane.
Easton Pearson Sale | Easton Pearson
Grab yourself a bargain ladies! Easton Pearson are having a humdinger of a sale, with selected pieces and past collections up to 80% off! Running until Sunday at their gorgeous James Street boutique, grab yourself some stunning fashion fixes (and an amazing bargin while you're at it) to ward away those winter blues.
When: Now until Sunday 18th May
Little Boxes | Anywhere Theatre Festival
Little Boxes uses a 360º set to fully immerse the audience in the narrative of its characters and subsequent storylines, tackling 'notions of isolation in densely populated environments', and the lack of social interaction in today's society. Don't miss the last few nights of this completely unique, visually stunning and thought-provoking production.
When: 15-18 May, 8pm-9:30pm, $24pp
Brookfield Show 2014 | Brookfield Showgrounds
Kicking off this weekend in Brisbane, the Brookfield Show is back and bigger than ever for 2014!

When: 16-18 May, tickets available online
Watch Your Step | Black Bear Lodge
Trust Black Bear Lodge to take our Saturday night out of the ordinary. Back by popular demand, they're dusting off the vinyls and taking you back in time to the swinging '60s; an era of the most memorable, most awesome tunes! Put on your killer mod frock and treat your ears to a session of classic soul, rock, funk and grinding garage.
Naked Cakes Workshop | Showroom
Celebrated cake designer Gillian Bell is sharing her baking tips in a one-off cake-decorating workshop at Showroom. Learn how to master her recipe for the perfect sponge, and then have a go at building and decorating your very own 'naked cake', to take home, of course!

Sunday Markets | Eat Street Markets
Want to hear the best news, like, ever? This weekend in Brisbane just got better: Eat Street Markets are now open on Sundays! Not content with showering us with two epic nights a week, the folk behind the Eat Street concept have added a third day to open their doors. That means you can now enjoy the spoils of gourmet food, drink, entertainment (did we say food?!) and gorgeous lifestyle products, on Sunday afternoons!
When: Every Sunday, 11am-7pm
Zac Gunthorpe Live | Scratch Bar
A little bit folk, a little bit rock n' roll, Zac Gunthorpe likes to keep his sets simple and classic. Literally — it's just him, a guitar and a harmonica! Get down to Scratch Bar for a post-work chill out sesh- great music plus a few excellent brews. That's Tuesday sorted then.
