Brisbane Magazines: "Hell Yeah" launch party at Fort Arts Hub, Sun Dec 13

This Sunday a new, free Brisbane lifestyle magazine, Hell Yeah, is having its launch party at the Fort Arts Hub at 57 Brunswick St, Fortitude Valley (click here for a Google Map).

It's ten dollars to get in, which apparently includes free beer from 3pm to 5pm. There will be a swimming pool, prizes and live graffiti. DJ Katch from Resin Dogs, Erther from Rude Bwoyz, Tash from Hell Yeah and Tigermoth will be playing.

To get there by bus, catch the 370, 375 or 379 bus from Adelaide St in town and get off at the second stop after the Valley Fiveways (see the Google Map for these landmarks). Just walk a hundred metres or so along Brunswick St to the corner of Water St, cross Water St and you'll be outside the Fort Arts hub. Or, catch a train to Fortitude Valley station, walk out of the shopping mall where the station is, turn right, and walk up Brunswick St past the Valley Fiveways and you'll soon get to the Fort Arts hub.

Fish Lane Festival of Cars and Cigars, Sun Dec 13

If you're up early on Sunday December 13th, from 9 AM to 11.30 AM there's a Car and Cigar festival being held for charity at Fish Lane in South Brisbane (click here for a Google Map).

There are going to be all sorts of fancy cars there, and apparently you can bid for joy rides. There will also be coffee and chorizo hot dogs for sale. It's free to look at the cars, so I'll be there with my camera. The event is in aid of Micah Projects.

The best way to get there by public transport is to catch a 199, 197 or 196 bus heading towards West End - there's a bus stop on Melbourne St right near Fish Lane. South Brisbane train station is also a five minute walk away. See the Google Map for bus stop and train station details, and you can use Translink's journey planner to find out public transport times. If you're on Facebook, the event details are here.
