Well, it’s that time of year again. A time that turns even the best of us into competitive lunatics, a time when we start to believe that the sportsman running around on the tv will hear us if we shout at them loud enough and a time when accidentally wearing the colour blue renders you a social outcast for the entire day.
That’s right…it’s State of Origin time!
If you missed out on tickets to the game but still want to take a front row seat and feel like you’re in on the action, here are our top picks around the precinct…
The Charming Squire
Not only will The Squire be screening the game on the big screen, but they will also be providing live entertainment right up until the game starts to really get you fired up! Pair this with their delicious bites and an assortment of their signature beer and wine on tap and you have the makings of the perfect game night! Insider tip? Pre-order your State of Origin spread here from them and you won’t be sorry!
South Bank Beer Garden
With its spacious deck and multiple screens, you’re guaranteed to have a fantastic vantage point of the game no matter where you decide to take a perch at South Bank Beer Garden. Add to the mix their famed steaks, craft beers and river views, and there’s nowhere you will feel more ‘Queenslander’ than here.
South Beach Social
With their relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, SBSC is a place that will warmly embrace you, regardless of what team you barrack for. And if State of Origin and ‘BBQ Buffalo Wings with Blue Cheese Sauce’ aren’t a match made in heaven, then we don’t know what is!
What better way to watch the game than with a pretzel in hand? Pull up a seat at our new kid on the block Munich Brauhaus and enjoy a tipple and sample one of their famous pork knuckles while watching all the action on the big screen.
