Friday Night Drinks ...on Saturday
This week I thought it was appropriate to hold off on Friday Night Drinks until Saturday. Today is the biggest sporting event in Australia, the Grand Final of the Australian Rules football. Unless you have spent some time in Melbourne when this final is on it may be difficult to comprehend the mayhem and atmosphere that it brings to the city. Fans descend from everywhere and over 100,000 make it to the stadium to watch the match. The drink of choice is undoubtably Victorian Bitter beer and the food? A traditional meat pie of course. No one said it was glamorous...The result of today's match ended in a draw which means that this is going to be repeated all over again next Saturday. Happy Saturday!
