Decision making is not in our forte.

As soon as we hear the dreaded question, “what do you want to eat?” our palms get sweaty and our thoughts go to mum’s spaghetti. Luckily, you don’t have to make decisions for two when you’re devastatingly single, so we’re taking our pick from whatever we want this week.

PARADOX COFFEE | SURFERS PARADISE

Local legends Paradox Coffee are doing more than just making the 9-5 easier this week, they’re also donating 100% of profits from the sale of their Guatemalan Renacimineto coffee to support the survivors of the recent Fuego volcano eruption in Guatemala. It’s the third most violent eruption to hit Guatemala in four decades and they want to help the community get back on their fit. On ya legends!

REGIONAL FLAVOURS | SOUTH BRISBANE

The foodie event of the year, Regional Flavours, is on this weekend! Stroll around South Brisbane as you sample fresh produce and delectable eats from stalls, or head to the main stage to watch cooking demonstrations by celeb chefs.
