Milestone: We have officially been married 1 whole month! I’ve realized the best part of being married is the automatic celebration day you are awarded the rest of your life each month. It’s the best! Since it was a work night and the hubby wasn’t feeling too good (change of weather and all), we went to Keg & Brew in Surry Hills that is a convenient 3 minute walk from Central Train Station! Perfecto!
We hopped our usual Town Hall train to Central and headed over to Keg & Brew. One thing that I love about Australia are the pubs. When I first arrived, they kind of reminded me of a casino. They have that same red carpet and old feel to them and serve food! Austin has some great restaurants and bars, but none really mix the two well. Bars don’t serve food, so it’s just drinking and partying. Restaurants have happy hour, but you can’t be dancing around til the end of the night. We really need someone to open up a great pub in Austin!
So Keg & Brew has a country/rustic theme going on. For some reason Victor is amazed by stuffed animal heads that are often associated with Texas and this pub had three huge animal heads hanging so that was pretty neat.
We found out that there is actually a decent happy hour in Australia at Keg & Brew. $4 craft beers 5-7pm. That may not sound like much and actually might sound pricey to people back in America, but let me tell you, it’s a really great deal! We will have to come back one day when we don’t work the next day!
We ordered the Wednesday special Pulled Pork Po-boy and some chicken wings along with a couple of beers. The atmosphere was vibrant, lots of people eating and chatting away along with tv and music blasting. I guess I must be getting old because I felt like it was a bit too loud for myself, but I think it was probably the afterwork stress of wanting some quiet.
The food came out and was pretty tasty for
the price. Great value for the price and we found a great green salsa that we LOVED. We almost wanted to take it because it’s that hard to find a decent green salsa in Australia! I can’t remember the name of the bottle, so I need to go back there and get it! It’s hard being a Texan out here, salsas are hard to come by!
It was a great simple night to celebrate our first month being an old married couple ❤
Cheers to many more!
Happy pub going!
