Your money will go a little bit further at Marios Cafe this Thursday, as the iconic Fitzroy eatery turns back the clock. April 28 marks three decades to the day since Mario Maccarone and Mario De Pasquale opened their doors on Brunswick Street. To mark the special occasion, they're serving up a menu where everything costs the same as it did in 1986.
Okay, so not quite everything. Booze prices will be staying on this side of Y2K, but everything else is going down, down, down. We're talking lasagne for $4.50, rib eye for $8.50 and coffee for $1.
Can we stay in 1986 forever, please?
Marios will be open on their birthday from 7am to 10.30pm. Based on the amount of attention their time travelling stunt has gotten, we're expecting quite the queue. Oh, and bonus points from us to anyone who dresses up in leg warmers.
