Welcome to 5 Simple Things, where we give our tips on 5 things that normally include: listen, drink, watch, eat & an activity to do. This time round we’ve curated 5 things from the sunny city of Brisbane.
Listen: Switched on Pop Podcast
This podcast gave me an appreciation for Smash Mouths Allstar that I did't think was possible. A fascinating look into the machinations of pop music.
Read: James Elroy Widespread Panic
A crime caper set in post war hollywood that's sure to be full of Elroy's ratbags and renegades.
Cook: Slow cooked old school beans.
Right in the heart of Fortitude Valley this new hotel has a great rooftop view of Brisbane and is a great place to explore the city from.
Watch: Australian Story: Luc Longley
As a key member of the all conquering Chicago Bulls teams of the 90's. Longley was somehow missing from the great Michael Jordan documentary The Last Dance. Australian Story fills us in on Lucs story and its a must watch for any sports fan.
Drink: Capital Brewing Co - Coast Ale
I enjoyed my fist coast ale in the mountains as opposed to near a beach. It did't matter and this is a great smooth beer just how Mr Simple likes it.
