Don’t pack away your Maroons jersey just yet! Game 3 of State of Origin is coming up on Wednesday, July 12, and it’s set to be a big one.
Wednesday lies two of the most exciting/anxious words in a Queenslander and New South Welshman's life "A Decider", so it’s now more important than ever to cheer our boys to victory!
Newstead Brewing Co. | Milton
This venue is right next door to Suncorp Stadium so they know how to cater to footy fans. Their menu is full of cured meats, salty treats and plenty of nibblies to share while you cheer (or hurl abuse) at the game. Make sure you get in early to consider all 32 draught beers they have on tap across the three bars.
Barcadia Kitchen and Bar | Bulimba
It will be Wingsday Wednesday for Origin Game 2 at Barcadia Kitchen and Bar. You won’t be able to resist grabbing some of their mouthwatering 50¢ wings before you settle in to watch Queensland dominate on the big screens! Bookings are strongly recommended so it’s best to get in quick.
Darling & Co | Paddington
Bring your sporty crew down to Darling & Co in Paddington this Wednesday night and cheer on the mighty Maroons over a cocktail (or three). If it’s a good atmosphere, great food and a post-game celebration you’re after, Darling & Co won’t disappoint.
Dalgety Public House | Teneriffe
The Dalgety Public House is getting serious for Origin night. They’ve got double-stacked parmies and an all-Aussie line-up of icy-cold tinnies. Take advantage of the free entry and cheer on all your favourite players in between bites.
The Caxton Hotel | Petrie Terrace
The Caxton is always game-ready and no one does footy quite like them. So if you’re a true State of Origin fan, don’t miss out on their VIP pre game event at The Haunt Bar, tickets are $79 per person and they provide you with a 2.5 hour nibble and beverage package as well as live entertainment.
The Story Bridge Hotel | Kangaroo Point
This venue loves State of Origin time. So much so, they show the game from every single bar and restaurant in the venue. So it doesn’t matter whether you’re drinking or eating, there’s sure to be a screen nearby for you to shout or boo at. The best part? You can do it all from the comfort of your chair.
Pig ‘N’ Whistle | Various locations
If you want to be surrounded by passionate footy fans on one of Queensland’s biggest sporting nights, then look no further! The atmosphere at the Pig ‘N’ Whistle is second to none. They love their State of Origin so much they’ve even created their very own “QLD’er Burger” just for the night. Better get in quick with this one. It’s only while stocks last.
The Normanby Hotel | Red Hill
As one of Brisbane’s oldest and most favourite venues, The Normanby Hotel is home to amazing food, great company and a fantastic atmosphere. What more could you want from your State of Origin night? (Other than a Queensland victory, of course!) Grab a big rump steak for only $16.95 or one of their famous chicken schnitzels for just $9.95, and make sure you book in advance to get the best seats.
