    High Cheese at Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort

    For many, cheese is the glue that delicately holds our lives together. The team at Pearls Bar understand this lactose infatuation and has teamed up with Queensland’s own Kenilworth Dairies to create a high cheese filled with a slew of sumptuous sweet and savoury delights. From 4:00-8:00 pm every Thursday-Sunday, reserve a spot at Pearls Bar at The Sheraton Grand Resort in Main Beach and prepare to indulge. From $69 per person, soft-cheese lovers can sink their teeth into a truffle triple cream brie and oozing baked camembert with marinated figs and pretzel rolls. From there, hit the harder stuff and add a slice of 12-month-matured vintage cheddar, Kenilworth Blue or Malling red cheese to your artisan crackers and revel in the bold flavours. Sweet tooths will delight in the likes of roasted hazelnut Nutella cheesecake, berry mascarpone tart, port-poached figs with blue cheese crumble and candied walnuts, and a baked white-chocolate yuzu cheesecake. Those looking to elevate their experience further can choose to pair the high cheese with a gin or whiskey-tasting flight from some of your favourite Australian distilleries. Add three gins for an additional $17 per person, or warm-up from the inside out with three whiskeys for $20 per person. This dairy-filled feast is here for a good time, not a long time, so gather any fellow lactose-lovers and reserve yourself a table at this amplified high cheese experience.

    Not So Silent Night

    If you truly want to up the ante this silly season, celebrate another year done and dusted (almost) at The Star Gold Coast’s Not So Silent Night. This fast-selling event is undoubtedly one of the social events of the year and is the perfect excuse to get dressed up and let your hair down. The spectacularly themed ballroom will be dressed to match the black-tie dress code and there will be live tunes from 42Band (made up of a selection of exceptionally talented artists from Gold Coast legends Hanlon Brothers’ renowned musical arsenal), who are known for their stellar repertoire of RnB, soul and hip-hop jams, followed by local DJ Danny Clayton who will hit the decks and keep the dance floor pumping late into the evening. When it comes to the fare, this starry soiree will deliver a decadent selection of canapes, including hand-rolled sushi, mac-and-cheese croquettes and butter chicken samosas. From there, guests will enjoy a sumptuous three-course feast. Sublime sips are also a must when getting into the yuletide spirit and they will be in plentiful supply – Not So Silent Night-goers will be spoilt with a four-hour beverage package to accompany the feast including local sparkling, red and white wines, and beer. If you’re feeling particularly thirsty, you can upgrade your beverage package to also enjoy a selection of spirits. Tickets for this sensational soiree are $195 or $220 for the ticket and beverage upgrade, and can be secured via Gold Coast Tickets. Be quick as they are strictly limited – last year’s event sold out in record time.
