Ahh... Australia Day... Nothing can get more patriotic than a bunch of Aussie's sipping on Fosters (only cos it was the cheapest beer in the pub) having a massive BBQ. And instead of all of this happening in Australia... It was all going on down at the good old Redback Tavern in Acton.
We got there at about noon and it was so quiet but we got our free T-shirt and had a few drinks. By about 5 it had picked up and we'd eating our free BBQ burgers that were actually quite tasty. At 7pm we were pretty drunk and were singing wildly to Aussie (and non-Aussie) songs.
I scored a free Aussie flag tattoo and whacked that on my face and I wore my Aussie flag proud and strong that night. Seems that you're always more patriotic when you're in another country.
