The weather isn’t the only thing heating up this weekend in South East Queensland. From a big fat Greek-Italian degustation to a potential three-day burger bender (no judgment here), there is a yummy event for every foodie this weekend…

Bender’s has opened its doors | South Brisbane

Here is something to well and truly sink your teeth into, Brisbane. The highly anticipated Bender’s Bar has officially opened, providing a fresh and chilled-out space completely devoted to burgers and snacks. The newest foodie instalment from the owners of South Brisbane’s Billykart, Bender’s is the perfect spot to get messy this weekend. 

Venetian Republic Degustation at Nostimo | South Brisbane  

Acclaimed chef Nino Zoccali is coming to South Brisbane’s Nostimo for one night only this Saturday, and he’s bringing with him some delicious flavours, recipes and stories from across the medditerraean. Teaming up with Nostimo’s head chef David Tsirekas, the eight-course menu will celebrate and recreate recipes from Zoccali’s new book Venetian Republic. Two courses we are particularly keen for include the grilled octopus with black eyed bean salad and messolonghi bottarga, and the Ithacan slow-roasted island goat with fresh oregano. 

Yeronga Craft Beer and Food Festival | Yeronga

Southsiders, this one’s for you. Or if you live on the northside, this one’s totally worth the trip across the river. Sunday’s Yeronga Craft Beer and Food Festival is the chilled-out, suburban foodie festival of your dreams. With some of Brisbane’s tastiest food trucks from The World Food Markets and brews provided by Helios, Yenda, Ballistic and Brick Lane, we can guarantee no one will leave famished or parched.

Eat Street’s 6th Birthday | Hamilton

Happy Birthday, Eat Street! Now, let’s eat. This b’day bash is so extra it’s taking place over three days, with all the usual vendors dishing up their treats and a few funky surprises. We’re talking a cake-cutting ceremony with fireworks on Friday night, as well as roving entertainment, raffles, prizes, hip hop dancers, Eat Street Cheerleaders, and loads more fun stuff taking place all weekend long. 


You have no excuse not to stuff yourself silly this weekend, Brisbane.
