Inside Portside – March 2018 – Easter Long Weekend


The Easter long weekend, so much free time, but what to do with it? Where will you go when your go-to coffee spot and craft beer bar have shut their doors and gone AWOL for four days? While the chocolate might be calling your name, save yourself from the sugar withdrawals and fill up on something more substantial at Portside Wharf’s many cafes, restaurants and bars staying open on the Easter weekend.
