Oktoberfest, Melbourne Cup.. Spring has sprung!

So, Winter somehow bypassed us! Between the mild Winter weather and all the sport that came and went, it almost feels as though June, July and August never actually arrived. The Pig ‘N’ Whistle venues are now busily preparing for the latter end of 2016 and the events that Spring brings (Melbourne Cup anyone?)


Join the world’s largest volksfest and come celebrate all things Melbourne Cup, OktoberfestGerman! Think bratwurst, kartoffelpüree and schwarzwälder kirschtorte (10 points if you can pronounce it). With a special German menu and German beers we encourage you to dress in your finest Lederhosen and come attribute to the 7.7 million litres of beer that’s consumed every year during Oktoberfest! Each Pig ‘N’ Whistle venue will be offering something slightly different, so for all enquiries please contact us. Oktoberfest begins Friday September 30.

Melbourne Cup

The Race that stops a Nation is not far away, so it’s time to submit that leave form and start rallying the troops! With sweeps and prizes for best dresses, November 1 is not a Tuesday you should spend in the office. Brunswick Street and Riverside will be offering their extensive selection of British pub classics, with Melbourne Cup inspired cocktails to keep you feeling fruity. King George Square‘s seafood station will feature shucked oysters and fresh king prawns, with mains including fresh barramundi and handmade gnocchi. For a three hour canape package with Mumm, spirits and James Squire, book a table at West End. If you’ve never experienced Indooroopilly‘s renowned high tea in the bistro, this could be your chance. Devonshire scones, dainty sandwiches and everything else cute and quaint will make up the menu on Melbourne Cup day. Book your table here.

Sit Down Comedy

Wednesdays at Indooroopilly are great for two reasons; You can catch sit down comedy free of charge all the while enjoying a pizza and pint for just $20. Get down over the next three weeks to watch Mark McConville (September 28), Dan Willis (October 10) and Adam Rosenbachs (October 12) perform… And take advantage of cheap pizza and beer. You can see the full lineup until the end of the year here.

Spit Roast Weekdays

Vegetarians beware, Pig ‘N’ Whistle Riverside have weekday spit roast specials. You can order a half rotisserie chicken with potatoes and gravy on Tuesdays for only $20. Is lamb more your thing? Join us on Wednesday evenings! For some pork on your fork, we’ll see you Thursday at lunchtimes (hint: we also have Thursday lunchtime trivia). Say sayonara to the working week with spit roast beef on Friday at  lunchtime!

Triva, trivia, trivia

Because what else would you be doing on a Tuesday or Wednesday evening? Indooroopilly have been hosting trivia since the venue’s inception in 2000, and now Brunswick Street, West End and Riverside have caught on. You can join in the fun at Indooroopilly on Tuesday evenings, West End and Brunswick Street on Wednesday evenings and Riverside on Thursdays at lunchtime. To find out more, contact us.
