So tonight the RiotACT crew was invited to the launch party of the legendary Brodburger, relocated to the Kingston Arts Precinct.
It was a star studded event. In the midground of the above photo you can see the ACT Treasurer Andrew Barr scarfing down one of the mini burgers on offer last night. The big guns of the Commonwealth Cabinet were there too, Minister for Resources and Energy, Martin Ferguson, barged past the Riot team on his way out of the building.
The new premises is in the heart of the old Kingston industrial precinct. Here’s the exterior view:
The staff are kitted out in very cute uniforms:
The kitchen is much bigger than in the old establishment:
But the old caravan is still out the front:
As expected at Brodburger the wait saw packs of jackals stalking the wait staff coming out of the kitchen:
Finally Sascha Brodbeck and his partner Joelle Bou-Jaoude made their speeches to a packed crowd under the light of Mount Pleasant.
The evolution of this institution will be fascinating to watch.
But I think the design will suit their late night cruising driver crowd as much as those who just want a damn good burger.
