Where do Newtowners go to celebrate ANZAC Day ? In the eyes of the Mayor, the best two-up is to be found at the Coopers and the Courthouse - not surprisingly two of the more authentic old-school bars in the area. Further afield, the Duck and Swan in neighbouring Chippendale (definitely within the Newtown sphere of influence) has a great outdoors two-up on the street, at least until the cops roll around at sundown to close it up.
I wouldn't be surprised if the Townie and the Carlisle Castle also were good places to be - has anyone spent ANZAC Day there in the past ?
So what's the verdict ? Anyone got comments on the above pubs or experiences anywhere else ?
PS Don't forget the Newtown Jets will be playing at home (Henson Park) on ANZAC Day at 3pm, against the Shellharbour Dragons (who walloped us 42-10 earlier this season) - a great post two-up option, complete with KB long necks and a real grassy hill.
