HOT GIVEAWAY: Enrich Brisbane

Towards the end of this month, Brisbane will play host (for the first time in fact) to a festival of sorts, celebrating food, wine, coffee, the outdoors and lifestyle in general.   Enrich Brisbane is an innovative, interactive showcase that steps outside the boundaries of your typical ‘food and wine’ expo by incorporating a whole lifestyle […]

HOT – Satay Hut – Shop 3 Little Stanley St, Southbank.

The fourth and final of my Malaysian feast adventures, patient thanks to Malaysia Kitchen Australia, salve was at Satay Hut in the Southbank restaurant precinct.  This place is always packed at lunchtime, stuff servicing the hungry local businesses and tourists alike, so I figured it would be a safe bet for dinner too. To be […]

HOT – Max Brenner – Shop 1.1 and 1.2, Stanley St Plaza, Southbank

Ok, so Max Brenner and his wicked stores don’t need much by the way of introduction, so I’m just gonna tell it how it is.  There’s always a queue, if not 10 or so deep it’s well out the door, particularly in the evenings.  There’s a general lack of order and grace in the whole […]

HOT – Dr Zhivago (An Epic Musical) – The Lyrical Theatre QPAC, Southbank.

Reviewing live theatre whether it be stand up comedy, buy musicals, ballet and so on is always hard as one’s inclination towards it is such a personal thing.  Something that is totally rocking in my opinion could be as entertaining as sticking a pen in your eye to someone else…hence, I was nervous to accept […]

HOT: La Via – 6 Little Stanley St, Southbank.

Back on the search for some pizza nirvana (during a hiatus from my incessant hunt for Brisbane’s best Thai) the girls and I decided to try La Via at Southbank for a Friday lunch out of the office. Although a little clinical in appearance and feel, pill the setting at La Via is pleasant with ample […]

HOT: When the Rain Stops Falling, QPAC Playhouse, cnr Melbourne and Grey Street, South Brisbane

Brink Productions and Andrew Bovell’s When the Rain Stops Falling, is an absolute standout play, one of the best I’ve seen all year. When the Rain Stops Falling is intricate, clever and thought-provoking. Trying to describe it is like trying to capture  floating mist, but in a bland nutshell you could say that it’s a story […]

HOT: Sardine Tin – Shop 3A Arbour on Grey, Little Stanley St, Southbank.

Mixed opinions have been thrown my way about Southbank’s resident tapas venue Sardine Tin, cheap mostly to do with the limited menu and price tag.  But I don’t take heed to these sorts of comments too often, medications because most people who feel this way just don’t get what tapas is all about.  On one […]

HOT: Denim Co. – Little Stanley St, Southbank.

After a string of delicious and HOT breakfast-related reviews lately, stomach I’ve reached a point where our binary rating system of HOT or NOT is causing me some grief.  It’s easy to issue a HOT when the food is fantastic and you can’t really fault a place at all.  Similarly, sildenafil it’s easy to issue […]

HOT: Ron Mueck, Gallery of Modern Art, Southbank

Ron Mueck is a Melbourne-born London-based sculptor who first made a name for himself on the international art scene through the notorious Sensation exhibition of young British artists held by Charles Saatchi in 1997 (which also included the now-famous works of Damien Hurst and Tracy Emin). Mueck also represented Australia at the 2001 Venice Biennale. […]

HOT: Avenue Q

A comedy musical with puppets? Don’t start groaning – the Tony Award winning Avenue Q is cheesy, clinic cheeky, pharmacy a little bit dirty and it’s certainly not for kids. Admittedly it doesn’t try too hard for laughs (who’s not going to laugh at puppets having wild sex?), the songs are catchy without being memorable […]
