In an attempt to beat the Canberra winter blues, Hopscotch is going Western every Friday night until 5 July with their Smokeout event series. Featuring a mechanical bull, Texas smoked meat platters, drink specials, DJs, and live country and western bands, bring your inner cowboy and join the wild ride.

Experience the thrill of a rodeo and see how long you can last on the buckin’ bull before tucking into a drool-worthy BBQ platter. Big enough for you and your mates, it features beef short ribs, pulled pork and smoked chicken wings, as well as optional add-ons including mac & cheese, mash & gravy, and slaw.

Following two wildly popular Smokeout nights, don’t miss out on the final four on 14th, 21st and 28th of June, and 5th of July.

Bookings are encouraged, visit Hopscotch’s website for more.
