In a society that is thriving off the hospitality industry it’s easily forgotten that catch ups, first dates and family gatherings can occur WITH OUT food. But it’s super important to remember they can.
Of course, we all have to eat, and you can grab a bite before, or after the show, but here are five ideas that don’t revolve around eating!
Blanc De Blanc
Okay technically, this is a show dedicated entirely to champagne, but it’s absolutely fabulous. Raunchy, draw dropping (literally), some eye covering and well beyond what you would expect. I mean, you 100% would not expect what you will see. The show combines the world’s finest cabaret stars and acrobatic talents with some very quirky (and naughty) story lines. Very naughty indeed. You can then kick on your evening to the Brisbane Festival space, with plenty of food and non-food activities to see and do!

2. Bridget Jones’s Diary at Palace Cinemas
Everyone appears some what sceptical of whether this s going to be as good as they want it to be… Let me confirm it is. Very much so. It will have you laughing, crying and thinking about how well Renee has aged, and how much her BJ character hasn’t changed. It’s perfect. At Palace Cinemas, it’s even better. Before the movie you’ll have access to fabulous city views, extremely comfortable couches and side the cinemas is even more lush – comfortability is at it’s peak here, there is absolutely nothing available to complain about.
3. Holy Moley Golf Club
In the heart of Fortitude Valley, a church turned club will soon host Brisbane’s newest leisure-tainment venue – Holey Moley Golf Club. The 18 hole mini golf course isn’t going to be anything like the primary coloured Putt Putt games from your childhood memories, you can expect some very uniquely themed holes and a venue like no other. Just for a little taste tester, think Alice in Wonderland, Snoop Dog, iconic surfing culture, Game of Thrones all mashed up into one venue. And even though the focus here isn’t food, there IS a cocktail bar and gourmet kitchen offerings on hand, just in case. It all tees off on September 29, so keep your eyes peeled!
4. Cirque du Soleil – Kooza
It’s back and reviews are suggested better than ever. Daring and dramatic, sexy, decadent and jaw dropping – all comments that have been selected to describe the performance following the premier in Sydney last month. Standing ovations all round, Cirque du Soleil certainly doesn’t need to require food and pure presence is all that will compliment this experience. Having attended last year, I know this will be one to mark in your calendar.
