It's beginning to feel a lot like... that time of year when everyone pretends it's Christmas, even though it's not. And while plenty of places around town are getting into the July festive spirit, only one is giving away free mulled wine.
From 3pm on Saturday, July 28, Beyond the Pale at Coorparoo Square will be serving up free steaming vino to the first 100 customers — which is an excuse to get there early, obviously. Among the precinct's other eateries, there'll also be seasonal dishes such as Christmas chicken, Turkish hot chocolates and Christmas cakes. The culinary part of the Christmas in July Laneway Party is an all-day affair, and your now-hungry stomach can also expect food tastings.
From 5–8pm, live music will also float through the centre. It's not snow, but this is Brisbane after all. Or come back on Sunday, July 29 and head over to Dendy Cinemas, where the Bill Murray-starring Scrooged will be playing — and saying "bah humbug!" — at 6.30pm.
