Father’s Day

Don’t forget to mark a very important date down on your calendar, kids! After he taught us how to ride bikes and butter our toast, it’s our turn to jot some nice words down on a funny card and take Dad out for a special Father’s Day meal.


Treat Dad to a celebration at the Pineapple Hotel on Sunday 4 September. With plenty of dining spaces, a playground for the kids, and beers on tap (of course!), it’s a family reunion spot that will make everyone feel special.


This Father’s Day we’ll be running a rare deal – and safe to say it’d be a misteak to miss it! Beef up your outing with our Black Onyx pure Black Angus rib fillet and a pint of Heineken for just $50. Our extra gift to Dad? He gets to keep the pint glass!


Ready to toast to another year of bad jokes, dodgy sock and sandal combos, and dorky dance routines at family reunions? Book your space now on (07) 3393 1111.

Never the Sane reunion

We’re turning back the clock for a whole night at the Pineapple Hotel! With a nod back to the 90s and its live music scene, we’ve set up an exclusive concert on Saturday 27 August by old Pineapple favourites Never the Sane.


Never the Sane were once the tunes you’d kick back to with a beer at the Piney, mixing reggae and soul with good ol’ fashioned rock ‘n’ roll. While they’re no longer playing Brisbane gigs, the team is reuniting for band member Terry’s 50th birthday – and we plan on rocking the house down!


Join us for this one time only reunion at the Pineapple Hotel – we’ve got a whole night of entertainment planned!
Muster up the gang and cheer on Brisbane bands Pick it UpNever the Sane and Preston.


Doors open at 7.30pm and a DJ will kick off the night as our bands set up. Cover charge for the night’s entertainment will be $10 (but don’t forget to send Terry a roaring birthday cheer!).

21st Birthday Speech Writing Tips

Birthdays: cake, presents, parties … speeches. Yep, Dad’s getting on and wants to reminisce, friends are celebrating their 21st birthday party and want jokes that’ll dull the pain, and your third cousin just wants some filler while the candles are being lit. If you’ve been “privileged” with the task of presenting for a shindig, we’ve lined up a few birthday speech writing tips to keep the event as quick and painless as possible for everyone involved.


Scan the room

Ask the party planner about the guests rocking up. If toddlers or grandparents with heart conditions are in the front row, you may want to steer clear of any risqué anecdotes. Your buddy’s wife probably doesn’t want to hear an extended speech about his dating record, either. Know your crowd.

Birthday Speech tips



Let everyone get a few drinks in

Barring drunk uncle Larry, who’s bound to have tottered in half-cut anyway, most guests will probably take a little while to loosen up. Give them an hour or so to pound back a couple of beers before trying your hand at entertainment. Trust us: the jokes will seem infinitely funnier.

Chuck in a joke

On that note, it’s a good idea to keep birthday speeches light and fluffy. Let’s face it, half the guests are probably annoyed at how long the cake’s taking, and the other half are probably trying to break up a family brawl across the room. A funny speech can set a great vibe and act as a welcome distraction.


Birthday speech writing tips


Sadly, you’re not immortal

Before you start teasing the birthday boy or girl relentlessly, be aware that you probably don’t have the power to stay 29 forever. Your time will come, and they will find you.


Tips for birthday speeches


Chug away

The best speeches end with a toast to the guest of honour. Whether that’s in an effort to tug at everyone’s heartstrings or simply dull the pain with a tonne of alcoholic beverages, it doesn’t really matter. Grab a boozy drink, raise your glass, and breathe easy. You’re done.

We’ve all felt it, that inevitable clenching feeling in your jaw when you know you’re due for another corporate catch up.
