Free Burger Party
A housewarming party with a bathtub full of tinnies, 400 free burger, a charity sausage sizzle and a Goon of Fortune-style giveaway.
A housewarming party complete with ice cold cans, free burgers and snags hot off the barbie. If that sounds like your ideal situation for a Saturday arvo, round up the crew for a trip to South Melbourne. Local pub The Market Hotel is welcoming its new kitchen resident — burger joint The Pickle & The Patty — and together they're throwing a shindig this Saturday, January 25.
Hit the pub from noon and you could nab one of 400 free grass-fed beef burgers courtesy of The Pickle & The Patty. You might remember these guys from their recent pop-ups, including that pint-sized carpark store in Ascot Vale. Then from 5pm, the folks from Malvern deli Lewis and Son will be firing up the barbecue for a gourmet sausage sizzle, with all proceeds heading to the CFA.
As you'd expect from an Aussie housewarming party, there'll also be a full-sized Hills Hoist set up. It'll be running a Goon of Fortune-style prize wheel with a stack of merch and free beers to be won. And if all that spinning makes you thirsty, you'll find a bathtub stocked with an array of $5 Thunder Road tinnies, a pay-what-you-feel Atomic Beer Project karma keg (with proceeds going to the CFA) along with plenty of drink specials over at the bar. All this while Triple J's Hottest 100 countdown pumps bangers through the speakers, all day long.
The Free Burger Party runs from 12–9pm.
