The Australian Celebrates Its Birthday Tonight
If you like to eat, chances are you like to drink (read: a lot of you are freakin’ lushes), so every week our Happy Hour Correspondent “Mamacita” will post about a different bar in Midtown that fits the Midtown Lunch mentality: unhealthy food, not lame (unless it’s lame in a cool way), and most importantly… cheap.
The Australian (20 W. 38th st btw. 5/6th) was one of the first happy hours that ML reviewed and Zach gave a thumbs up to the meat pie offered on their $8 lunch specials. If you have been meaning to check them out then today would be the day. The Australian celebrates its 3rd year with a birthday bash tonight! To liven things up the theme of the party is Bogan. What’s a Bogan? As far as I can tell the closest American equivalent is the term White Trash. So yeah, dress up as some lower class Aussie and win a prize. They will have free Bronzed Aussie beer and Jacobs Creek Wine from 7pm for an hour. Australian’s happy hour is a beaut with $4 beers and a bar food menu that is ‘down under’ $6 dollars. Happy birthday Australian, good on ya, mate!
