Melbourne Cup is on next Tuesday, the 3rd of November 2015.
The race that stops a nation. Well, maybe it used to when it was run at around 2.45pm (back in the day), but a 3pm race time means school pick-up time for many and an interruption to those champagne focused festivities.
That said, just being a part of the Melbourne Cup hype is fun, and a great excuse to get together with a group of friends for lunch, gossip, and to show off your new fascinator.
For those wanting to enjoy the Melbourne Cup vibe ‘In the Cove’, here is where you can join in the fun.
Lodge Lane Cove
ITC will be going to Lodge for a Melbourne Cup lunch. Last year there were quite a few ITC Facebook fans who put together tables at the Lodge. Details of Lodge’s Melbourne Cup event can be found here. Bookings from 12pm.
The Longueville Sporting Club (aka The Diddy)
The Diddy is holding a Melbourne Cup Luncheon, with bookings from 1pm. Enjoy a drink and one of the popular meals from Charles Bistro (Mr ITC loves the Tandoori Lamb Backstrap!). Read more about the event here.
The Longueville Hotel (aka The Longy)
The Longy is also holding a Melbourne Cup event – a 4 course lunch, that kicks off at 11.30am (and their TAB opens at 10am). More details of the event here.
