Did you know that 2019 marks 20 years since Reverse Garbage Queensland officially opened its doors? In celebration of this milestone, they'll be putting on an Open Block Party at their RGQ Warehouse at 20 Burke Street in Woolloongabba on Sunday 14 April from 4.00 pm to 8pm. At the free anniversary party, there will be something for everyone to enjoy. My regular readers know how much I love Reverse Garbage and this promises to be not garbage at all.
