Here is our monthly round-up of June events. June was filled with lots of alcohol and other events! It was also the start of Winter.
This week was a really fun week. Here we tried the Corner Hotel’s $15 negroni and it was so much fun. It was the first time doing the event and I had a ball watching them make my Negroni. It was during my Friday happy hour of course.
The Negroni is a spiced drink with Campari and other things such as cinnamon.
Many other places had this as well such as Brunetti’s which had theirs with a little sweet. But the Corner Hotel was picked due to the close proximity to the station and that we had never been in their rooftop bar before.
Lots of free food
This month brought out a lot of free food promotions from Australian venue co-app and from businesses. Most of the businesses emailed us a promotion. We enjoyed food from places such as Hopscotch and other things.
The Duke had their $25 voucher as part of their birthday promotions and here we enjoyed their barra burger and beer (but I had to pay for the beer though).
Leftbank also had their 10th birthday and as part of their celebrations, we enjoyed some free canapes.
Ritual.co app had just been released and one dollar food was on offer. For one visit we got food free
Also, Subway had just updated their membership program and we got a free sub as part of the signup.
National Doughnut day
This day was really fun and whilst we didn’t get Krispy Kreme we got a protein doughnut which was much healthier. And a much better way to snack since we’re trying to quit added sugar.
But I know that other people did.
The Big Umbrella selling burgers to the public
Earlier this month they announced that they would sell burgers to the public and it was well received with massive sellouts! The Big Umbrella is a charity that helps the homeless by feeding them every week!
To earn more money to buy food and operate more nights, The Big Umbrella has decided to set up shop outside Gate 5 at Marvel stadium. And they plan to be there every weekend that the AFL is on.
Gin as part of the Queens birthday
On the Queens birthday weekend, we enjoyed Gin and lots of it in various places such as the Feast of Merit and at Leftbank.
At Leftbank we enjoyed it with canapes. The Feast of Merit had some good Gins and we enjoyed the Four Pillars Gin with flatbread. Here we visited the rooftop bar which had a nice atmosphere. I really liked the Four Pillars Gin as it had a good bite to it.
Of course, we encourage everyone to drink responsibly. Most of our drink happenings happened during Friday’s happy hours and not during the working week.
