Gaycrash Canberra Update

By GaycrashCBR - 1 May 2012 38

Hey lovers/haters, thought we would get you a bit of an update from our last Gaycrash event 😉

So as our Facebook friends would know, last friday (the third of every month) was our fourth Gaycrash.

113 people RSVP’d to the event, and we estimate approximately 90+ gays, lesbians, queers, trannies et al descended on the Old Canberra Inn in Lyneham.

Getting there early to suss out the venue, there were mainly tables of high visibility clad tradesmen and their mates having friday night drinks- a very “blokey” crowd. From 7pm, more and more punters came through the door, the crowd suddenly became more diverse (and fabulous), and soon the front and back rooms of the Old Canberra Inn were standing room only.

Not only did us queer folk get to experience a new venue for the night, but our new straight mates had a drink and some laughs with our eclectic crew.

Initially, it seemed the bar staff were shocked, but actually they were more concerned about pulling enough brews for their massive new customer base.

Talking to the owner of the Old Canberra Inn, Mr Glen Boorne this afternoon, he reported that “it was a great night”, and that “we would love to have that many people back every friday”

He also commented that the night was “no trouble”, the girls on the bar said they had a good night, and their new patrons were “good fun”.

Apart from putting a BIG slug of cash behind the bar, and taking over the jukebox with terrible camp hits, the only trace us Gaycrashers left behind, were our signature beer coasters, declaring that the venue has been Gaycrashed. Mr Boorne commented that the staff had a laugh when they came across them the next day.

So on behalf of the Gaycrash crew and our fabulous guests, thanks very much to the Old Canberra Inn, its staff and its regular punters for a great night. Lots of “pink” cash and fabulous homosexual love to you all.

xoxo Gaycrash

PS: The chicken parma at the Old Canberra Inn is AMAZING and is topped with bacon… BACON!

Well done. It’s good to see some barriers being broken down. I’d like to see more of these reviews. What happened at the previous three events.

Concur on the chicken parmigana, and go one further with the kiev.

Glad to hear it was safe/fun/etc.

Old Canberra Inn is a great old place, and always very friendly and welcoming. Not surprised to hear that the owners/staff were happy and everyone had a great time.

I’d be interested to see the difference between this and say, Mooseheads, perhaps.

What’s the regular number of people at the Old Canberra Inn on a Friday evening?

Every time I’ve been there the place is hardly packed so I don’t think you would have been doing much crashing, gay or otherwise.

The owners would have loved it but, you probably tripled their usual Friday night takings.

Well crap nobody told me there were going to be commemorative beer coasters.
Had I known I would have taken the 10 minute walk from my house down to the pub to have a beer and steal a coaster.

You know I think the only three clubs it would cause dramas at would be Meche, Academy and Capital Men’s Club…

Im still laughing.

But mostly because I got a mental picture of people streaming onto Quangers main street, fighting on, with loud coloured clothing everywhere.

Some guy in a fluro vest on the ground being strangled by a tranny using a feather boa. Other people just dancing in the background while zany music is playing like a scene out of Blazing Saddles or Caddy Shack.

Awesome.
