“I’ve tasted the tapas and the Centenary bubbly, and believe me at $15 for four tastes and a glass this is a fantastic bargain,” Robyn said.
“But basically this is more about being able to say you were there, to join in some of the lovely craziness we have in store on 11 March. It’s just a lot of fun and it’s once in a lifetime—so grab a ticket and make sure you get a photo on the day.”
Robyn says the tapas will give the day a distinctly Canberran flavour, having been designed by local chef Jamie McGahey and inspired by some of Canberra’s finest local produce.
The Centenary bubbly is a specially created sparkling wine made by local winemakers, Pankhurst Wines, from chardonnay and pinot noir grapes grown by Canberra District growers.
“The back stories about how the food has all been sourced locally, the menu devised by a local chef, and the sparkling wine locally produced give the Longest Bubbly Bars in the World something very special, and very Canberra: I hope thousands of Canberrans and visitors will lap up this unique opportunity to taste a celebration on the eve of Canberra’s 100th birthday,” Robyn said.
