Weekend Style Guide (May 25-28)

Bring loose pants, a pet, comfy shoes & your biggest hat & glasses.

By Elysha Medhurst | 24th May 2017

Have no fear, we are here to save you from your third weekend in a row of Netflix & chill....ed ice cream.

Style has the goss on what anyone who’s anyone will be doing this weekend (ok, what we’ll be doing).

No need to thank us. But you can, if you want.

VIVID SYDNEY | FRIDAY, MAY 26-SATURDAY, JUNE 17

Baby when the lights … don’t go out. Sydney’s Taronga Zoo will be seriously lit for 23 nights starting Friday. This spectacular display is the largest light festival in the world. We challenge you to walk into the jaws of the 20.6m shark. We’ll be there … to cheer you on! You go, Glen CoCo.

PETS AT THE GABBA | SATURDAY, MAY 27

I’m pretty excited about this event, but who isn’t? There is an entire market held at Woolloongabba, dedicated to our pet pals. We now have an excuse to spend the day shopping for our pets. It’s not only acceptable but encouraged. Don’t even try to pretend you aren’t going.

AN AFTERNOON WITH AUDREY HEPBURN (METRO ARTS) | SATURDAY, MAY 27

Never has there been a person born with more elegance. Celebrate the career and life of the unforgettable Audrey Hepburn. The stunning actress would have turned 88 at the start of May. Join fellow Hepburn fans for a three-movie marathon at the The Lumen Room, Metro Arts. Big hats & dark glasses are expected … obvs.

THE 2017 MAROON FESTIVAL | SUNDAY, MAY 28-WEDNESDAY, MAY 31

Okay everyone, huddle up. The 2017 Maroon Festival has officially arrived. The team strategy is to meet at the South Bank Cultural Forecourt and unite with fellow supporters. Get ready to show your unwavering support for the XXXX Queensland Maroons team. There will be trivia battles & panels! We can’t wait to hear how these players handle their balls.

SOUND OFF AT THE SUMMIT | SUNDAY, MAY 28

Yogis unite! Are you prepared to seriously up your yogi game?
Urban Bliss Yoga has your Sunday sorted. Arrive at this event and receive a pair of … wireless headphones? That right, yogis, it’s a Silent Disco yoga sesh! Only the greatest hybrid we’ve seen since the cronut. As you merge out of Downward Facing Dog, breath in the beauty of the Brisbane Lookout at Mount Coot-tha. #namaste

NATIONAL DOUGHNUT DAY | FRIDAY, 3 JUNE

Try to remain calm everyone. KRISY KREME IS GIVING AWAY 30,000 FREE DOUGHNUTS. Sorry, lost my chill. To celebrate National Doughnut Day, Krispy Kreme stores will be giving away one free original glazed doughnut per customer. I’m not a morning person, but I will be an apprentice flame thrower for a day to get me a free doughnut. Get your asses out of bed and join the queue with your fellow doughnut addicts.

TREASURY CASINO WINE AND CHEESE TRAIL | FRIDAY, JUN 9

Let there be cheese. And lotsa wine. Yes, everyone, the Treasury Casino has organised a truly heavenly event in The Courtyard at the Treasury Hotel. Get cheesy with as many bites as your pants will allow. Don’t forget to have a glass of wine or two. You know, to bring out the flavour of the cheese.

Now there is no excuse for you to have a less-than-amazeballs weekend.
