Your guide to weeknight happy hours, dinner deals and entertainment on the Border.
After a long day at work, what’s better than catching up with a few mates for dinner and a drink, especially when you can grab a good deal along the way?
Happy hour is arguably the best hour (or two) of the day, but deciding where to go isn’t always that easy. Albury Wodonga has no shortage of great restaurants, clubs and pubs, the only question is what’s on and when?
At Border Cafe, we’ve often found ourselves in the same situation, searching for weeknight deals and a cheeky after work drink. So, we’ve done the hard yards, compiling a list of weeknight dinner deals, drink specials and entertainment to keep you going until the weekend.
Cure your Mondayitis with a few all-time classics, get your Mexican fix on both sides of the border almost any night of the week, and unwind outside on select Thursday and Friday nights plus much more.
Whether you’re after traditional pub grub, or you just want to relax with a few drinks while going easy on the wallet – this is the list for you.
