Harry's Bar on Riverside specials

Post by clutchcargo »

You know the place I'm talking about.. aka ex Cadillac..

So I popped in the other day for their 'Crazy Friday' $6 meal specials..there are about 5 menu items from memory:

Cheeseburger
Chicken cordon bleu
Chicken Caesar salad
Steak & Onion/Chicken pie
Fish and chips (not sure about this one)
all with sides of salad/fries/mash

Anyway, 3 more items have now been added:

Cottage pie
Gamon steak
Chili con carne

So that's great to have the added choice :thumb:

But not only that, I was pleasantly surprised come 'check bill' time to find I got an additional 10% discount for VIP regular customer for food and drink! This applies any night of the week. Sign of the times I guess.

So I thought I'd give a heads up about that coz this is great value..

As an aside, I noticed too another new promotion...breakfast, 2 eggs (any style incl poached), bacon, toast and jam for $2 between 9-11am. I can vouch this is good..decent serving of bacon and thick toast...can't beat that imo.

Where were you last night Clutch? You missed out on the inaugural cheese and wine soiree. I told you to be around!

We had a Kaiken Malbec from Argentine and a very nice Spanish tempranillo, both 14%.

Don't think so. Steak is a bit expensive when you're pitching at the >$10 mark.

The Cheese and Wine thingy was just a few of us regulars with some nice wine I found. Barry (the owner) provided the cheese. Everyone else got a free ride.

I am trying to work out how to do it on a monthly basis with a price for each so all can join in. I am just wondering how many might turn up. 10+ would be enough with the left over cheese being sold off under the normal cheese platter menu item.

I am thinking of 2 reds and a white, plus 7 different cheeses, at about $2.5 per item including biscuits/bread/fruit or chutneys and pickled onions. You can have as little or as much as you like. Wine at maybe $4 a go. The wine yesterday, the Kaiken, is sold in Oskar at $6 a glass or $36 a bottle, so $4 is good value.

It's not really designed to be a big money spinner, just something nice to do occasionally and might get a few people more familiar with the bar (that's my selling point with the owner!)

It is not intended to be a CEO get together and will not be promoted as such.

Any interest out there? Thoughts?

Sure, but if you are a bloke and you turn up with a handbag, we might take the piss.
