June long weekend. It’s amazing how three little words can make you feel so tingly and happy inside.

You can choose to be lazy at home, or you can read on to see our seriously fun eat, drink and play ideas.
Oh, and a big Happy Birthday to the Queen! If it wasn’t for her day of birth, you’d be stuck in the office right now. So let’s give her a bit of love and appreciation, and celebrate a day off work!


June long weekend at Sweethearts Rooftop BBQ
