Oh no, November. It’s that time of year already?

Stanley | Howard Smith Wharves

We stan a delicious Cantonese-inspired menu, which is why Stanley’s opening this November 1 on Howard Smith Wharves is definitely worth putting on the bucket list! While the menu is a secret for now, guests can expect staples such as perfectly crispy Peking duck, tasty dim sum, and steaming bowls of congee to grace tables when they visit! Get in quick and nab a table before they open here.

Rosé Revolution| Bowen Hills

In November, we drink pink. There’s nothing we love more than having both our stomachs and hearts filled, which is why the annual Rosé Revolution always ends up high on our November bucket list!

The Prince Margarita | El Camino Cantina | King Street

November rain or purple rain? At El Camino Cantina, it’s porque no los dos with their November special, the bright purple The Prince margarita! Simply head in and make it rain dollar bills ($25 to be exact) to receive this stunning marg’ infused with acai berry and topped with seasonal fruits.

Bubbles and Barrels Festival| Pig ‘n’ Whistle | Fortitude Valley

You know the G&G loves an old-fashioned B&B – a Bubbles and Barrels festival, that is!

Fish and Spritz | One Fish Two Fish | Kangaroo Point

Tis’ the sea-son to be spritzin’, tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-laaa.

Sip and Shop Pop Up | City Winery | CBD

Not to talk shop, but this is one springtime sipping spree that simply can’t be missed! City Winery is joining forces with BrisStyle to bring the latter’s virtual store to life on Sunday, November 17 from 10am to 4pm. Pairing handmade wares with delicious wine? Yes, please.

Benders | South Brisbane

Extra splendour this November comes in the form of Benders, Brisbane’s newest burger bar! The brainchild of West End fave Billykart Bar, Benders opens November 6 with a smorgasbord of delicious burgers, including an Aussie burger with housemade beef patty, bacon, fried egg, beetroot, tomato, lettuce, and rhubarb ketchup. Get chatty over patties and hit them up this month.

Be quick, Brisbane! You only have T-minus thirty days to enjoy these tasty November treats.
