If you’re gonna shut up shop, this is the way you do it.
Yep, sadly Bluebonnet BBQ are being forced to close their North Fitzroy digs (bloody developers), but they’ve decided to turn their frown 100% upside down by throwing a 20-day all-you-can-eat-meat-feast. (Hardcore fans, don’t worry, the team has already secured a 20-year lease elsewhere. Watch this space.)
Here’s what’s going to happen. Every day until 15 April you can rock up at Bluebonnet BBQ and pitmaster Terlika will bring you plates of BBQ meat...and then more plates of BBQ meat...and then a few more for good measure.
It’s basically bottomless meat. As long as you can keep eating it, they’ll keep bringing it. They’re calling it 20 Days of Gluttony.
And not just any meat. We’re talking the slow-smoked, fall-apart, BBQ-glazed, sticky ribbed goodness on which Bluebonnet built its legend. The feast kicks off from 5pm every night and will set you back $55 a head.
Bring on those meat sweats...
If BBQ isn't your thing, try this: Melbourne's getting a Parisian spritz bar by The Yarra.
