This Week in Brisbane
We've been feeling a little bit too festive in The Urban List office of late. Having consumed one too many bite-size chocolate eggs, we have a seriously good tip as to where you should be heading for your last-minute Easter shopping. With a load of great events on this week in the lead up to Easter; Turkish cooking class, roof top film, Blues and Roots Festival and an amazing exhibition at GoMA, we still can't seem to get our minds off chocolate, chocolate, chocolate! Tom's Confectionary Warehouse here we come (again)!
