Just when we were thinking November couldn’t get any better… it does.
This week, there’s a whole lotta feel-good events worthy of filling your calendar from gigs by much-loved Aussie bands to charity dinners.
So, round up your mates and embrace the epic beginnings of the social season, with this list of five awesome things to do on the Sunshine Coast this week.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again—any not-for-profit event that brings together incredible local chefs from different restaurants and involves us getting to eat said chefs’ delicious food, is a winner in our books. This month’s Nomadic Chefs Table will see six chefs take to the kitchen (including Simon Hamner from Gold Coast’s Rick Shores) to create six stunning courses for you to devour. Tickets to this feel-good event will cost you $100, with all proceeds going to Sunshine Coast-owned charity Afrikin Love You to help build two homes in Uganda for nearly 50 orphans. Plus, it’s BYO… and you know how much we all love BYO.
Meet The Maker At Brouhaha Brewery | Thursday, November 17
If you haven’t checked out Brouhaha Brewery yet, shame on you. But really, if you’re to down one of their brews at the place they make ‘em, this Meet The Maker event is the perfect chance. You’ll get to chat with Brouhaha’s head brewer Matt, sip on six of their lip-smacking beers, plus chow down on two courses from the kitchen. Did we mention it’s only $45 a pop? Spots are limited, so what are you waiting for?
Founders Co. | Saturday, November 19
It’s finally here, guys! After waiting patiently for one whole year, Founders Co. is back for one day only, and it’s gonna be better than ever. Kind of a tradeshow, kind of a market, Founders Co. pulls together some of Queensland’s best creatives under one roof for a massive, shop-able display of fashion, art, beauty, homewares and way, way more. There’ll be food, a pop-up bar and live music, so if you’re bringing your man while you do a bit of Christmas shopping, there’ll be plenty to keep him occupied. All the fun kicks off at 9am at The Big Top on Ocean Street in Maroochydore. Get there. Oh and for the after-party shenanigans, beeline straight to Corbin’s.
Boy & Bear | Saturday, November 19
Do we really need to sell this gig to you? Probs not. So we’ll just tell you the deets straight-up so you can hop to ordering your tickets asap. Boy & Bear is taking over the stage at Lake Kawana Community Centre this Saturday night as part of their Limit of Love Regional Tour, and we’re pretty stoked about it. Seats are going cheap and we’re guessing it’s gonna be a sell-out, so don’t ponder on it for too much longer.
Queensland International Ska & Reggae Festival | Sunday, November 20
Sundays were made for reggae, so it’s kinda fitting that The Yacht Club in Mooloolaba is playing host to the Queensland International Ska & Reggae Festival this weekend. Featuring the Sunny Coast Rude Boys, The Upsteppers, Pantastic Steel Band, and more—the promise of Caribbean cocktails and a Jamaican BBQ is also swaying us towards this all-ages Sunday sesh. Entry is a measly 15 buckaroos, with kids sliding in for free.
