Is it just us, or were we only celebrating last weekend like, a second ago? With the weeks flying past at lightning speed, no doubt all we'll have to do is blink and it'll be the weekend again (not that we're complaining?) and you'll be looking for things to do in Brisbane. This weekend is set to be an absolute cracker, with new bar openings, fashion events, vintage markets, cookbook launches, and cherry blossom dinners. There's an event for everyone this weekend in Brisbane.
Here's what's on this weekend in Brisbane.

Woolly Mammoth's Garden Bar Opens! | Woolly Mammoth
Brisbane's bar scene is about to get hairy! Woolly Mammoth is the newest addition to Fortitude Valley's nightlife. Consisting of three distinct bar spaces areas — The Alehouse, Garden Bar and Mane Stage — The Woolly Mammoth is set to be a pumping new Brisbane bar, and this weekend you can get a sneak peek.

From macramé classes, to hula dancers and DJs, as well as all the tiki cocktails your little heart could desire, it's going to be one hell of a celebration. Don't miss this one!
Boudoir Bazaar Fashion Market | Hamilton Hotel
Born out of a love of buying designer and vintage clothing on a shoestring, Boudoir Bazaar was created to bring together Brisbane's fashion-savvy for the ultimate vintage shopping market. Held every three months on a Sunday, the vintage market is the place to go to snap up new, preloved and one of items at a fraction of the price. Who could say no to that?
Viva Espana! | The Euro
We love CBD restaurant The Euro any day of the week, but on Tuesday nights this restaurant turns Spanish, with a stunning eight-course tapas share menu, complemented with Spanish wines to match. This not-to-be-missed foodie event is only $49 per person. Contact The Euro to book.
When: Tuesday nights
