Howdy Bears! Can you believe that 2015 is just around the corner?! Where has this year gone? We hope you can join Brisbears downstairs in the ‘Gold Room’ (aka Mineshaft) of the Sportsman Hotel for a night of celebrations as we see in the new year.

There will be a $10 cover charge for the whole venue with free entry into the Gold Room, men only in this section of the club, and doors open from 8pm. On the Decks will be Dj Vinceble and Dj Shanobear (Mel). There will be lots of entertainment, raffle prizes from our sponsors and you can even get your portrait painted by Pricasso.

We hope to see you there!

Ho ho ho Bears! Last night we celebrated Christmas with our Christmas Bears party at the Sportsman Hotel. There was a great turn-out, and everyone got in to the festive spirit as we partied on till after 2AM.

A huge thank you to Milkman who provided our major raffle prize, an amazing hamper of beard care products. The products were a hit with those who tried the samples. If you didn’t get to try them, look out for the committee again next month. To keep your beard looking and smelling great, visit Milkman’s website and order yours today

Also thank you to Brisbane Powerhouse for supporting us with tickets to the upcoming MELT & Brisbane Queer Film Festival. Check out the line up of entertainment and get your tickets on their website –

Thanks to DJ Fradge for keeping us dancing all night, and as always thank you to the team at our home, the Sportsman Hotel, for looking after us. Of course thank you to all of our members and guests for coming along, and a big shout out to the committee and volunteers who made the evening possible.

We wish you all a very safe and Merry Christmas and we hope to see you on NYE when we welcome 2015!
