You’ve been hammered all week at work getting things done before the holiday shutdown period. Now it’s time to celebrate and get hammered! This weekend there’s a fair few opportunities to have a drink or two. Must be a sign that you need to round up the girls…

Friday Prosecco and Co and Walt and Burley

Make the most of this special occasion with Walt & Burley’s punchy prosecco menu, available from 5pm. From the ‘Foreshore Fizz’ to the ‘Cherry Sparkler’, there’s something for everyone. Send it in style and book a table for your work crew on 6239 6648.
