Sydney Bar Week is always made better by a good, old fashioned bartenders’ brunch, and this year the fine folks from Tio’s Cerveceria — a finalist for the Phil Bayly Award for Tequila Bar of the Year — are putting on a spread to soothe your sore heads. It’s all happening on day two of Bar Week, at 10:30am Sunday the 18th of September. They’re working with Ghostboy Cantina on a feast — 10 bartenders to a table indulging in a few whole beasts with Bloody Maria’s flowing freely, and a great chance to swap stories (and tell a few lies) with your bartending pals from across the country. For more information contact the always happy Alex Happy Gilmour via email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
