Do you spend your working hours wishing you were far, far away from your desk? Does fantasising about your next holiday get you through the week? Don't worry, we've all been there. And while we can't all always make our far-flung dreams a reality, Brisbanites can head on down to Blackbird every Friday afternoon to keep the jet-setting pretence going.
Faking it till you make it overseas is part of the fun of Jet Set Fridays, which occur weekly but celebrate a different destination each month. During March, Japan is in the spotlight — which means themed cocktails, oyster shooters, Asahi and Nikka boilermakers, prawn and scallop dumplings, Japanese drummers and plenty of cherry blossoms. Oh, and sipping Chita Suntory Highballs while overlooking the river.
