The publicans at the Bridgewater Hotel have deserted us and handed in their lease.😡 🙄😥 This might create a bit of an issue for the trivia night venue wise if the pub is still vacant come Feb ( obviously we are hopeful that new tenants can be found and we are also considering a change of career 😜 ) There is local hall and also footy club rooms which we could potentially use but put frankly we are not too keen on organising caterers at such a venue unless there is significant interest - we would be happy to follow up if there is - Anglesea hall and catering last year was ideal but hell call me lazy - would BYO dinner suffice ? - we could take the BBQ trailer too - any thoughts are welcomed if we assume at this point that the status quo remains come Feb.
Hi Marcus we ate before we came to the pub for trivia night and just bought some drinks over the bar on the night. Im happy to go along with the majority but I feel it would be easier to eat first and then just rock up for the nights festivities wherever you use chose to hold it. Less hassle for both you and Allison.
Less than a month away, so here is an important request regarding dinner and trivia on Saturday night and a reminder of what's on over the w/e.
Dinner and trivia on Saturday. There are new owners at the Bridgewater Hotel and we have again booked the beer garden for an evening of fun and entertainment. Dinner at 6.30 will be followed by trivia. You will need to book with the hotel to ensure a place and to help with seating arrangements etc. no need to pre order dinner but there is an expectation those attending will eat as well. There is an a la carte menu with plenty of yummy selections at reasonable prices. See the Event Facebook page if need be. Remember teams of about 8 can be formed on the night and of course inventive team names get extra points.
Please book on 5437 3576 so as not to be disappointed and let them know you are Vintage Vanning.
What else is on....
