We’re not sure about you guys, but we at The Pineapple Hotel have been crying manly tears over our tinnies and signed NRL footballs since the news came in that beloved Maroons captain Cameron Smith has retired from the game, effective immediately.
After an impressive 42 origins and 56 games for Australia, this Storms player is hanging up his jersey for good and leaves the rest of Queensland devastated ahead of 2018’s State of Origin’s first game on June 6.
Who’s going to lead us to victory against the cockroaches? What does this spell for the Melbourne Storms? Does this mean Billy ‘the Kid’ Slater will finally outgrow his nickname and step up as captain of the team?
Alas, while we can’t answer these existential footy questions, what we can do is help you soak up those tears with a delicious meal and quality brew at the Park Bar, our designated space for everything sports-related, including live screenings of Brisbane’s most-anticipated NRL games.
From 5.00pm onward, go from sad to glad with our quality pizzas, whose brilliant $12 price tag on TGIF (just in time for Friday Night Footy) will have you smiling from ear to ear. Also popular on Friday nights (and every other night actually) is our main menu’s sticky pork ribs tossed in chili soy, which pairs perfectly with a pale ale or two from the bar.
And to complete the healing process? Join us on Game Day (Wednesday, June 6th) to watch the first State of Origin match live and loud on our screens as the new generation of Queensland Maroons works hard to make Cam Smith proud.
We know this bad news is hard to tackle… but now’s the time to try.
To keep up-to-date with all our screenings, keep tabs on our sports calendar here.

In 2017 everyone was talking about ‘Tiny Houses’. In 2018 it’s all about ‘tiny weddings’. With House and general living costs at an all-time high, couples have more important things to spend their money on then giant over the top weddings, which is why tiny weddings are the trend of the moment. Just because your wedding is small, doesn’t mean it isn’t still a dream come true. Here is why you should consider having a ‘tiny wedding’ in 2018.
Cutting Down The Guest List
When it comes to organising a guest list for a tiny wedding you are going to have to carefully consider every guest. It’s not about who ‘isn’t’ invited but who really needs to be there. Try not to let anyone affect your guest list but your partner. Once your great great aunt beryl is invited it’s going to be hard to say no to anyone else.
Save for something special
Contrary to popular belief, not every little girl (or boy) dreams of a fairytale wedding. Some people simply want to find someone they love and spend the rest of their lives with them. Some people dream of owning a house or travelling the world. If you are one of these people, there is no reason you should spend your life savings on a wedding. There is nothing wrong with having your reception at a classic pub surrounded by those who matter to you most. Just because you don’t spend the big bucks doesn’t mean your day won’t be perfect. Plus you can use the money you saved for something that really means something to both of you.
Quality over quantity
When it comes to organising a wedding, Martha Stewart recommends you allocate 50% of the budget to the reception. It therefore stands to reason that the less guests you have, the more money you can spend on high-quality food, beverages, music and fun little details that make the experience special for everyone involved.
Spend More Time With Your Guests
You know when you go to a wedding and you only see the bride once because she is so busy chatting to each and every one of her guests? While some people might like playing host, many people actually want to have fun and relax on their wedding day, spend some time with their new husband or wife (shocker!), have a boogie or have a laugh with their good mates? At a smaller wedding the responsibility of the couple is lessened and they get to spend the night doing whatever they like. The pressure to perform is also lessened, your not on a stage but surrounded by your good friends and family who aren’t going to judge you if you get a little crazy on the dance floor.
Make it about the love
It sounds like stating the obvious, but weddings should be about celebrating love. Sometimes that message gets a little lost in the process of throwing a giant 200 person event. Strip things back to basics with a small wedding that actually allows you to spend time with your love after all you did just marry them.

Two Grand Finals falling onto a long weekend? Yeah, we’re going to celebrate that. The Pineapple Hotel will be tackling one heck of an epic long weekend party, packed full of food, brews and Grand Final views.
The Piney will be kicking things off on September 30 for the AFL Grand Final. Starting nice and early at 11am, we’ll be serving a special AFL menu throughout the day, followed by drink specials and live entertainment!
The NFL Grand Final on October 1 will draw in a family friendly day, featuring a great kids menu before kick off at 6.30pm. Other offerings will include menu and drink specials spreading out over all areas of the Pineapple Hotel!
The third and final reason to celebrate this long weekend is Industry Day on October 2. The day rightfully celebrates hospitality and entertainment workers, encouraging all you legends to kick back and relax with some bevvies and good food – and that’s exactly what we’ll offer.
