When you live in a city that's usually streaming with sunshine all year round, the sudden onset of colder weather can come as a shock. Fear not, brrrrrrrr-yelling Brisbanites — the frosty season comes bearing gifts. Indeed, at Riverbar and Kitchen's third annual Winter Festival, there are plenty of things to heat you up.
Example one: mulled wine, aka the best way there is to drink wine (once you've tried it, we're betting you'll agree). Example two: hot-buttered rum, which really does involve putting butter in rum (and defying everything you've ever been told about healthy eating). Example three: s'mores, because all that slurping is bound to leave your tastebuds wanting fire-roasted marshmallows and chocolate between two biscuits.
You'll find all three down by the Eagle Street waterside on Saturday, July 28 and Sunday, July 29, plus live music too. Entry is free, but you'll have to pay to enjoy all of the above. That view won't cost a thing, of course.
