The Long Weekend
A long weekend full of happenings, raising funds for Australian Red Cross, Foodbank Victoria and Wildlife Victoria.
Much-loved Fitzroy pub The Rochester is throwing its support behind Australia's bushfire victims with a whole, jam-packed long weekend of fundraising activities.
From Thursday, January 23, until Monday, January 27, it's hosting a swag of events to raise funds for the Australian Red Cross and Wildlife Victoria via a huge raffle and the donation of all staff tips. Thursday, January 23 will feature a special edition of Rochey Comedy, January 24 promises a big night of tunes from DJ Amiee Lotus, and on January 25, DJ Obliveus will be dropping by to grace the decks while a sausage sizzle goes down.
Then, on Monday's public holiday, you can help drum up even more donations, with $2 oysters and free pool up for grabs all day. From 7pm, boozy bingo starts and $10 cocktails hit the bar.
The Rochey has also put the call out for artists that would like to donate pieces to an art show slated for Friday night.
