  • Food & Booze
Wednesday June 18 The Pearl Café scoffs at the idea of pork belly, throwing the whole pig on a spit every Wednesday night, dishing it up alongside lemon and salt roasted spuds for only $25. We’ll be saying wee, wee all the way to Woolloongabba! Thursday June 19 Thursdays just got upgraded to the best day of the week with all you can eat mussels in four flavours with fries and crusty bread  at The Fox Hotel for $25 with any drink purchase. Hello sailor! Friday June 20 Friday means a long lunch right? Head over to Jellyfish where you can try mouth-watering Queensland produce, like Gold Coast tiger prawns with char-grilled sourdough toast and roast garlic butter, in a two course feed with matched wines as part of Lunch on Q.  Sorry boss, but we might just not come back. Saturday June 21 Burleigh Brewing Co are throwing a shindig at Kettle and Tin to launch their latest offerings. It will be a night of hops and barley matched with four courses worth of crafty creations from Kettle and Tin’s impressive kitchen crew. ‘Get here and drink beer!’ was the official invitation – so we will! Sunday June 22 We can rarely go past a good pork belly, but team it up with German beer and we’re sold.  Fortitude Valley’s Brat Haus has just that on a Sunday afternoon and it’s only $20, with sides too! Crackling-ly good! Monday June 23 Oh Whiskey how I love thee, let me count the ways. The Gresham are hosting a Whiskey Appreciation Night, (aka Love Fest). You’ll be treated to mouthfuls of Scottish Heaven and matched food for $70. Tuesday June 24 Love a lazy weekday lunch by the water. Nice to see Popolo agrees with me and are throwing in their Italian flair as par for the 2 course! Say “Arrivaderci” to your winter blues and “ciao” to a drink included for $35. Bellissimo. Wednesday June 25 Drop the kids off at school, wag work and play hooky in Mt Gravatt at That Little Place for Hump Day pancakes and a double shot Merlo latte. Shhhh no-one will see you in the burbs!! Thursday June 26 Take your sad face down to Indooroopilly shopping centre for Thursday night spending and find your happy face at Harajuku Gyoza. The pork belly is soft and the Kirin on tap washes everything away. Order some sake and the staff break out in a blessing and cheers around you. It’s enough to turn the biggest frown, upside-down. Friday June 27 Gather your Girlfriends, pop on your gloss and pop down to Libertine for a four course shared plate Ladies Lunch. BYO gossip and air kisses. Saturday June 28 That quintessential Funky Nanna, nims xx, ex Comfort at My Table Chef/owner is launching her own label of preserves. You’ll be able to get your hands on a range of 5 of her favourites including the legendary Banana Chutney from the Davies Park Markets. Look out for a kitsch teapot lined marquee. Sunday June 29 Flugente and the boys from Boy and Bird will be hosting a Winter dinner at Wandering Cooks in south Brisbane. This dinner will be influenced by memories of winter, with a focus on fresh game birds, mountain goat, crab, apples and wood. The dinner will offer 6 courses in a tasting menu with additional snacks for $85 or $135 with an optional alcoholic beverage pairing.
