We all know Melbourne Cup day in Brisbane isn’t just about backing a winner on the field; it’s about backing a winner when it comes to where you, your crew and most importantly your social media, spend the day.
Gone are the days of sad office sweeps and Susan from account’s sausage roles, now the only way to spend Melbourne Cup is to frock up and make a day of it. So we’ve teamed up with the Urban Purveyor Group who are the brains (and culinary masters) behind some of Brisbane’s best race day venues, to round up the best of the best for Cup day. So now, whether you’re ballin’ on a budget, or living large, all you have to do is organise your mates.
