The Brisbane bucket list: 10 things to overload on in October

It’s that time of year: time to stock up on the Berocca, make sure there’s plenty of bacon in the fridge for hangover breakfasts and put aside some funds for cab fares. Yep, it’s silly season and we’ve already started celebrating (tbh, we never stopped). If you’re just as ready to get feast-ive as us, this month’s bucket list is a good place to start! #1. Oktoberfest | Venues around town Who decided October was a good month for Ocsober, really? Not when there’s so many beery good times like these to be had across town! #2. Peanut butter & jelly wings | Buffalo Bar | CBD Ok, maybe wings aren’t over yet, because apparently when PB&J meets crispy deep fried chicken wings, somehow, something delicious happens. #3. Brioche French toast | Little Clive | Annerly Sweet French toast fingers stacked to high heaven and piled with raspberry cream and caramelised banana. Geddonit. #4. Chilli salt chicken ribs | Pawpaw Café | Woolloongabba Forget wings, the new finger licking chicken dish is ribs, especially these chilli crumbed, Thai spiced ribs perfectly matched with a pina colada. #5. Conrad cocktail | Hoo Ha Bar | South Brisbane You know how much we love espresso martinis – triple that and you’ll understand what we feel for this marshmallow and dark chocolate number. #6. Nachos | Fiery Deli | Roaming So good we had them three times last month alone, this loaded pile of corn chips, pulled meat and salsa (and cheese of course) is worth chasing down. #7. BBQ duck crepes | Libertine | Petrie Terrace These soft crepes piled with spicy duck, spring onion, cucumber, spring onion and fried shallots are everything they’re quacked up to be. #8. Breakfast sliders | Let Minnow | Clayfield The ultimate meal for the indecisive bruncher, Let Minnow’s brekky sliders are a mix and match feast of mini bacon and egg burgers, salmon bagels and savoury mince rolls. #9. Extreme milkshake | Various If you haven’t jumped on this epic milkshake trend yet, it’s time. There are doughnuts on milkshakes out there waiting for you! Find our top picks here. Better by some festive stretchy pants. Words by Ranyhyn Akui
