Mondo Launches New Menu | Mondo Organics 
We're suckers for all things Mondo, so when we heard they were launching a newly improved menu we were a little excited. We thought the old menu was good, but the new menu kicks it out of the park! Don't just take our word for it, though. Experience it for yourself, pronto!  

Get Yo Spring On! Yuppie Palace Episode One | Oh Hello 
Friday night drinks, cool beats, and a fashion show that doesn't suck? We're so there! Our pals at Oh Hello have joined forces with online menswear store Yuppie Palace to present their latest collection in 'Get Yo Spring On'. Come along and get in the mix as Yuppie Palace DJs rock a handcrafted selection of disco, electro and haus. Be there!

When: 9pm

Open-air cinemas can only mean one thing: summer is almost here!

Champagne Masterclass | Cloudland
We're always on the hunt for things to do in Brisbane that involves lots of champagne, so we're pumped about this event! This prestige champagne event hosted by Champagne Dame Kyla Kirkpatrick is set to be one for the record books.

Fizz fans, don't miss this one.
