Brisbane Seafood & Wine Festival 2006

Aw so since I have been complaining about the lack of interesting events in Brisbane. I noticed the Brisbane Seafood & Wine Festival was on again this year at Caxton street on the 30th of April. Anyone going? I am. I have been meaning to go for a few years now, but this year I am actually going to go! From what I heard last year, its not the most exciting event in history, but it can't be that bad. If you do go let me know what you thought!

What todo in Brisbane?

You know, I have been here for about 15 years now, yep, 15 years of pure brisbaneness. I have learnt one thing in that time. Brisbane isn't the most exciting City in the world. Nonetheless, I have been putting much energy in trying to gather some information in finding out what todo in Brisbane. In my own blog, Living in Brisbane I tried to focus a lot on reviewing Bars, Nightclubs, any venue that I thought people would find interesting. It worked well, I got lots of hits, I even had bars giving me bar tabs to come back and write a more... pleasant review. Nonetheless, I am still somewhat amazed as to how little of an online presence the Brisbane Social / Nightlife Scene really has.

Sure we have and some other sites, but who ever really uses them? I can't for the life of me figure out how to use half the time, its complicated, its too much information crammed into a little tiny space. I am not sure of the age group of the readers and contributors of this blog, so I am not sure if you are an outgoing bunch of 20/30 something year olds, or if you are all married with kids. Nevertheless, am I the only person who feels that way sometimes? That it's hard to find much about our beautiful city online? Before I joined this blog, I wasn't even aware of this many Brisbane Blogs in existence! So what are the resources you guys use to find information about Brisbane?

Site update

I've been meaning to get rid of the ugly hacked template for a while - it's a leftover from the days when Blogger templates were all hideous. So now we have good old minima instead - hope nobody objects? I also replaced the one-shot flickr badge in the sidebar with a flash one.

Also, if anyone wants to come on board as an admin for this blog, please drop me a line (jeanjeangenie at gmail dot com). I realise I've been a completely slack, bad and evil administrator - stupid PhD - so if you want to help run the blog and/or have nifty ideas for revitalising this space, please let me know.

P.S updating the template also got rid of haloscan comments, of course. Sorry about that. See, I need help....
