What’s on across the coast this weekend

What’s on across the coast this weekend

Summer’s disappearing faster than a Frosty Fruit after a day in the sun, so we’re packing in the activities while we can. Luckily there’s plenty of events making the most of the long days and balmy nights this weekend, like musical bingo, a double-day blues-barbecue and bottomless lunches. Some of the coast’s best venues are putting on cracker parties for the Hottest 100 countdowns, with live music and tasty treats to boot. Here's a snapshot of what's on from Thursday January 21 to Sunday January 24.


Hottest 100 Party at Balter HQ: The Currumbin-based legends at Balter Brewing Company will be hosting an epic Hottest 100 Day party on Saturday January 23. Counting down Australia’s 100 favourite craft beers of 2020, there will also be live music, delectable bites and (of course) Balter beers. Giveaways will be going down on the day with a carton of beer being handed out every 15 minutes! If this ain’t your first rodeo and you’ve been to one of Balter’s Hottest 100 parties before, you’ll also know that something a little bit special happens every time a Balter frothy makes the Hottest 100 list. The event starts at midday and runs through until 8:00 pm for a cracker summer session. Get the low-down here.
